How about "Messiah D" - - considering how long we've been waiting for it to appear.

they f...... wouldnt dare... they even took off the ricoh signature from the new K-3 body(II)
Yep, it will now be on every page of the menus, on powerup on the rear and top LCD for 5 seconds and the raw files will contain a watermark with the name Ricoh. Also the timer led will flash the word Ricoh in morse code.

If the name has to have a 'K' in it (and why should it?), then ZK-1 would be good.

Either they will name the first full frame model K-F, and later full frame models will get a number( (K-xF or K-Fx), or they will name it KF-x, with some numbering scheme.

K-F* King One

I'd want to see it called K-2.

This is for two reasons:
  • It would pay homage to the old film K-mount flagship K2, and
  • it would leave room for a "K-1", which could be a high-performance professional-grade sports camera with integral vertical grip and extra-high-capacity three-cell battery, like the Canon EOS-1D series and single-digit Nikon cameras (e.g. D3, D4).

I don't disagree - I always expected it to be either K-2 or K-1, but then what do you call the non-flagship FF... K-20? and the intro FF? K-200?

But I already have a K20D...

Maybe they will append the F like they used to append the D, so it's a K-2F. I don't understand why they dropped the D from the single digit names.

Perhaps it's because the prefix letter for FF won't be K?

yep and if you misspell K2 it means something like dogs bollogs in japanese... but nonetheless there was a K2
according to my florist, even numbers are for the dead
grandma says that when you light yourself a cigarette with a candle, an angel dies in heaven.

I just dont know if a company worth billions gives anything about all this. Despite the fact that Nikon called its professional child D4...
They care about that. Asians in general pay large sums not to have 4 on the number plate. Houses with 4 in the number are worth less. Buildings skip the 4th floor. While it is possible that Pentax will use 4 in a product name, it is also very possible that they won't, because of bad luck. That Nikon named a camera D4 is quite ballsy, it could have hurt sales.

It IMHO still makes sense to follow the K-S* naming scheme. It works very well. The higher the number, the newer. Then you only need to know that K stands for K mount, Q stands for Q mount, and which letter stands for which line. S is for the slightly weird cameras. Then there is a letter for mid range APS-C (K-50 successor), a letter for high end APS-C (K-3 successor), one for entry level APS-C, one for mid range FF and one for top of the line FF. It is very clear and understandable, it doesn't sound bad, and there's room for expansion (26 letters in the alphabet, and you can count pretty high, as long as the marketing people don't start to introduce a K-S1000 but stick with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ... K-S12...). Mild updates could still get the II attached, instead of an entirely new number.

I don't want a camera that is refers to some fastfood chain; just as well can call it BigMac in that case
