Why is Pentax teasing us in Toronto?

Well, is Toronto part of the Japan only release? I hate being teased. It interrupts my polishing my P645 lens.

Must be Toronto, Japan. Don't look up. Just keep going.

What a useless spokesperson. Could he be any less enthusiastic?

Ouch, tough crowd. To be honest, it appears that he's nervous. But that just my take.

It's just that if I was introducing a new camera to a N.American market for the first time I'd do a little better. He doesn't even mention weather-sealing. And heck, where are the fireworks?

Well, of course. Dan S. of Pentax Canada is a more of a photographer than a salesman, which makes him the perfect guy to talk to other photographers at a trade show. So of course he's nervous doing a spot on the 645D. Plus, it seemed he wasn't sure it was both video and audio at one point...

I thought the most interesting part was that Dan kept referring the camera as if it were an extension of the K-7 line - the high-end as it were. Seems to indicate a marketing mindset that the ever-so-blessed-and-awaited FF Pentax isn't "just around the corner." But then, the smartest thing to do is sell like what you have in your hands is all there is and will ever be...
