So, who is waiting for the K-1?

We have the Kx, Kr, K7, K5 which leaves a spot for the very best Pentax can offer in the APSC format.

Anyone willing to guess the price of the K-1 if there was one in the works?

perhaps someone who has seen such a similar lineup in the past can give a guess?

Eiköhän K-2 tule ensin ja sitten tulee K-1.

Kunhan pentax alkaa itse valmistamaan hyviä prosessoreita, joita on valmiina varastossa.
Ettei tule tuotanto katkoksia niinkuin nytten on todennäköisesti.

I'd think the next logical name would be K-3... but then who ever said pentax was logical?

K10D
K20D
K-7
K-5

Come on Pentax.. Pick a direction and stick to it... Although I am hoping that there is really a K30D in the works and the K-7/K-5 are just interim steps...

K3 will probably be next....but we probably won't see it until 2012. (this is my speculation only, not to be taken for any factual timeline)

I remember Pentax claimed that with the K-7, and my response was "yeah right - bet you it'll be just like the Nintendo DS."

I was right.

(FYI, Nintendo claimed that the DS would be a "third pillar" that would not replace the Game Boy - But since the DS was released, that has been where Nintendo's portable device focus has been.)

we heard that one when the K7 first came out...but great marketing ideas abounded....'like your best friend', etc.

This K5 looks pretty good - I think I might bite.

Cheers,

I'm too happy with the Clive but wouldn't say no to playing with the Kate when it appears.

Though we've obviously just participated in a sensor technology jump so I wouldn't expect there to be as major a step in the next body's IQ. Probably more on the processing and transmission speeds, utilising SDXC full speed and USB3.0

That's true, but I think I will skip the K-3. I beleive it won't have all the features that will make me a better photographer, so yeah, I am waiting for K-1. BTW, how do you guys think it will compare to Nikon D7000000? Should I switch systems?
