Well, since he usually talks to pentax france, maybe not, but Pentax is finally getting clever and using some pros like this to promote their tools. Oh, and also get feedback from actual users - I hope that the engineers are reading all the threads Ben starts about what we want in future cameras and such - a brilliant strategy.

This isn't a bad thing - it's actually great. Thanks for all the extra effort on your part Ben for keeping us in touch with Pentax. I'm eager to find out the news. :-)
Hope to see you in Paris October 6 & 7, 2007 at the "Salon de la Photos"...Not too early in the morning as I can't speak before 11:00 AM..Need at least 2 cups of coffee.

So... Something is happening in October?? Well guess what, something happens on December 25th too! I cannot understand why anyone would get excited over such a useless thread.

Because "Useless" really depends on in which context. I said there will be a significant announcement before October. Now that is better than none at all.

Hmmm Ben says he will have "them". Them refers to more than one of something, multiple bodies, or more likely, multiple lenses?

Hmmmmm.

Hmmmmm!

Hmmmmm!!

Well, let's figure this out by deduction..... hmmmm.

Does Ben use long lenses? ......No.
Will Ben be getting long lenses. No.

Does Ben use short lenses? Yes.
Will Ben be getting short lenses? No. They have given him those already. Unless.......!?!

Will Ben be getting the new DA zooms? Not then, becasue they are avaiable in France now and would not be big news by then.

Does Ben use the K10D? Yes.
Will Ben be getting a K10D. Uhmmmm... maybe a Super but that ain't nutin'
special without a killer sensor (?) improvement. Right?

Does Ben like Medium Format like me? I think so.
Will Ben be getting a medium format 645D. Hmmmm?!!

He did say THEM. And since we know about the two new cameras (which mean nearly nothing to me without increases to 10 and 12++ MP respectively...with non Sony sensors) is sure better not be them

Here's lookin' at YOU Ben.

I have been using my K10D's and love them. I don't think a new camera can impove anyones images. Enjoy it. Take great images and put your heart and soul in to them. Enjoy the K10D...It is a fine , fine tool.

Tell me..What if I were to say that there was nothing new being launched in the Fall. Would you consider it a pointless thread? I am sharing info that implies that Pentax are making very progressive strides and are developing new products as well as hinting at specific time frames. Now if that is useless, I find your crass negativity totally counter productive.

If you wish to discuss other issues re: technique, business etc. Shoot away. I am here to field questions if one wishes to ask.
