Why I wouldn't buy a K-1

Okay, I'll start.

Why I wouldn't buy a K-1

1) It's not available yet, only pre-orders
2) My current camera is still perfectly good
3) I just purchased a new-used K5iis
4) I don't have the funds (yet)
5) I don't shoot 10,000+ pics a year
6) I'm too old
7) I'm not an early adopter
8) It's too damn big and heavy
9) It has an un-crimpled mount
10) Pentax is doomed

11) I staked my reputation on "Pentax is doomed", and don't want to be proved wrong.
