It seems to me that Hoya to discontinue K-m it's not only HIGHLY unlikely but also plain stupid. They made 2 special kit lenses for it and it was on sale only for 7 or so months. K200D on the other hand was EOL from sometime ago.

Yes, that doesn't make sense at all. Except, of course, if they (highly unlikely...) release a "K-m Super" in a few days :-)

Seems that this "official distributor Pentax" has an information policy which leaves room for improvements

Like I said before I am all in for a K-m Super with few changes to help it in the following months until K-m2 appears. I for one wish for Prime 2 instead of Prime processor (if they are pin compatible maybe it's not too hard to make the change) to improve on jpeg output and general operation speed, a larger buffer for jpegs (until the card is full), orientation sensor for images and AF points selectable in OVF.

Maybe we will see 2 new cameras close to October/November.
K-m super?
I have no info if K-m is discontinued or not now, but no new delivery. This information for speculation.

100 sets of K-m is enough for Russian market till October.
