Thanks for the article. It s a good summary of the announcements and events.

I have one correction about this phrase:
This camera model is one of the six potential future special models discussed and voted on by participants in an online Pentax J-Limited event in November 2021.

The November 2021 event was not a J-Limited event. It was the online "Pentax Day" event that took place on the anniversary of Pentax's foundation.

The most recent J-Limited event was a face-to-face event at the Tokyo showroom at the end of March, but they didn't talk much about strategy.
