K0 = KO = Knock Out


"0" to start the numerology, and it can be pronounced "Kay-Oh." As in KO - Knock Out!

I don't care if they call it "Frank"

The new K-mount Ricoh Frank. It's Frankly Ricoh.

K-1 sounds right. Of course K-1000D might be nice.

K-1 or K-2 IMO. Maybe K-F1 but that would be kind of cheesy.
I agree. Anything with an F that stands for "Full Frame" is cheesy. Only Nikon managed to get away with that (with their FX designation - but it's not in the model name!).

K-2 or K2 (probably need the hyphen, actually) would be classic and allude to the high-end K2 of the film era.

How about a K-1000D entry model?? (Don't think so - the D's considered extraneous these days, though Canon and Nikon seem to be a bit 'stuck' in this regard).

I was actually thinking of the K007 Paul Frank designer camera.

Cartoons, colors, designer, "Be Different" - it all fits with Pentax.

Well if you want to be triumphant something like the Super-K01
and if you've been on these forums long enough it is more like About Time-K01 as I think "What the #**#!*!$ took them so long-01" wouldn't fit on a camera this small.

FF camera designation

I would bet money on K-1.

Although I like the idea of some variation on LX, such as LXD, I suspect the "D" won't be part of the name as it was dropped from the K series DSLRs already. Perhaps K-LX could work.

Despite the previous reuse of MX, I really don't see a return to MZ. And I agree that anything that starts with an asterisk is doomed, or at the very least is stupid.
