Portuguese hello from the UK

Hi all.

Iīve been browsing for a while and finally decided to join.
Great tips here, hope I can contribute something.

I started with the K10D, and despite the shortcomings, had something that made me stick and move on to the K5. Donīt regret it and am waiting for the next.

Still the same shortcomings(for my usage), but now Much better, so won't switch unless they decide to drop the prosumer line (with all this FF talk/fad, wouldn't be surprised). 645Z lite would be an interesting study as a FF competitor.

My wishes for the K3 successor/refresh:
-autofocus on par with the leaders (speed and accuracy). This is probably the only thing that makes Pentax "inferior"
-UK skies tested metering (overcast makes even a white fuselage dark)
-full control tethering
-better dynamic range or noise
-long (>400mm) WR telephoto zoom, on 60-250 price and quality range. Well, it is a lens request, but they do call it a system, right? I hope this new one fits the quality/specs bill without breaking the bank (did anybody buy the 560?), and that it isn't a rebadge

Best regards,
