Yes I am! I'm optimistic regarding the K-1, it will be I'm sure an amazing camera and quite affordable, too. And I'm sure Ricoh Imaging will make a profit out of it.

There's an explanation about the 645D/Z which doesn't involve magic: sharing (R&D, operational costs etc) with the higher volume APS-C models. This, and planning for higher volumes, allowed Pentax/Ricoh to target lower prices than the competition. OTOH the competition has to rely on the very low volume medium format.
However, on the small format market they don't have a similar advantage.

Those in the future know how this all turned out. Pentax brought the K1 to market with D810E resolution specs + in body stabilization + pixel shift +GPS + WiFi for under $1800. Woo Hoo. Thanks Ricoh.
