I wonder what the next model will be called. K-0?
No, Pentax seems to drop 2 numbers... 7 to 5 to 3 to 1... So clearly the next model is k(-1).

Well, seeing as they seem to be going by increments of "-2," I think that maybe the next one would be the K-(-1). Would that make it a "K+1" since two negatives make a positive?

Or they could go fill in the missing gaps from where the K-7 was and count up..! The K-9 - best camera for dog lovers!

I get mostly hits for the k-01..............
Still pulling for the LX-D. Or K-LX.
Yeah, before the name "K-1" was officially announced, I suggested this would be a great time for Pentax to re-examine their whole naming process, because it has become seriously unwieldy. Nothing has happened to change that opinion.

That's always going to be just an imaginary camera.

Since they are digital cameras, how about giving them digital (binary) numbers, like 1001010?

A 7-bits byte? Is it unsigned, or signed - in which case, can I assume it's a negative number (sign bit is set)? Complement of two? In which case, that gives me Pentax K -54 - not a particularly meaningful name...

I like good bands. Doesn't matter much to me if they are male, female, or even hermaphrodite.
I don't care much for bands that are all image and no substance.

Wait, what were we talking about again?

It seems likely this model will have a long life, like 645D. Maybe the next flagship FF will K-1z.

I would not be surprised to find LX is reserved for something in the pipeline we haven't thought about yet - something with a revolutionary viewfinder and metering.
