Speculation on My Part.

Is anyone as curious at to the silence of benjikan lately? Could it be that Hoya has put everything on hold at Pentax?

My guess is the D300 and 40D announcements trumped whatever Pentax had up their sleeves, so they might have to delay the release to add more features. The D300 would be sorely tempting if I needed a K1D or 1D level camera...Nikon did a lot of things right w/ that release (I'd call it slightly better than Canon's 40D and if the AF works as well as I suspect, Canon may no longer own the sports photography segment).

And benjikan realized the same thing so he's got a secret stash of pre-production D300's to play with because Nikon is tempting him over towards the dark side

I noticed that he has been quiet.

I just assumed that he was busy working. Is there any basis for speculating otherwise?
