When another company comes out with a full featured, weather sealed, 10mp, body for under $800.

Right now the K10D has not competition. I can buy a K10D and some lenses for the price of the D200 or D30/40.

Really the D80 is it's only competitor and the K10D is a better value at $150 or so less.

Hum, I think he means to ask for the introduction date of the new Pentax DSLR (does anybody know by the way?), and the price difference between the D80 and the K10D body is only 45 here. (755 versus 800).

There is some speculation that the camera will either be announced August 31 or in the first half of september.

Well it's nearly the end of 31 August here, only 2 hours to go - and nothing yet. Surely New Zealand, as the centre of world photography, would be first to see anything new?

Earlier this week, while talking with Pentax U.S. support about something else, I casually asked when we might see the K10D replacement. Was told, "We've been told to look for something new in January." I didn't ask which January.

Hmm i wish I knew, guys what should I do? Buy a k10d + grip now for 545 or wait until this new camera comes out? which will probably be 6-700 on its own. Thing is I know I have a few gigs coming up that I'd love to photograph in september/october. I currently have the *ist DL. Which I will sell.

I'm thinking of upping my camera every year to keep up my investment otherwise it'll just dwindle away and im a poor photographer/student waiting for people to start buying my photography (Home)

My initial thoughts are to go with the k10d + grip and use that for the next 10ish months then upgrade again next year!

I think a full frame camera wont be happening as they'd have to create a whole new range of lenses as the current digital ones are specialy suited to the 1.5 X crop factor
