Km2 at $890 US ?

what's in this body that would make it cost this much more than the Kx?

considering that canon just announced the T2i with some impressive specs (on paper at least) and at $799, what does the Km2 at $890 give over the T2i?

any specs?

Aren't these just speculations? 90% chance on a 645D, 30% chance on a Km2, etc.

Why K-m2, not K-x2 ?
Also note, that it has top LCD....

They'd better finally invent SAFOX 9, then making similar bodies.

PS: Also it would be grate, if they build some sort of adaptor for power.
If you wish, you can insert one adaptor and use 4xAA, if you wish the other - insert Li-Ion adaptor and use Li-Ion accu....

If that 10-16mm is true, I'd be very interested to see how it performs. I've been pining for an UWA in the DA* line and this would be a very tempting offering.

Having said that, I'll wait for something more official before I start tucking money aside for it.

Guys note that DA* 20/2.0 and DA* 28/2.0 are SDM-Only lenses. They have no screw-drive AF.

And 10-16 sdm title is masked....

that word '予報' in the circles next to all these 'new' items means 'forecast'. Nothing to see here people. Move on...

whooo!

DA★ 28/2 SDM!

It's the 30mm from the roadmap back to life? I can see this lens kicking the DA 40mm Limited off my camera and staying glued on. (At least until I have to send it in to get the SDM repaired. )
