Not old new. They've stopped production, but this is the first time they've been marked as officially discontinued. I thought long and hard about getting a K-7 or a K-r. in the end I picked up the K-r.

whether old news or not, that is to be expected, just a matter of time. Unlike Canikon, Pentax can not afford to run old models in the production lines at the same time as the new ones. Although most likely, there will be no firmware update after the model has been discontinued. However, I remember that we did get one more firmware upgrade after the K10D have been declared discontinued model in the past.

K-x had a very good run. Probably the best of all Pentax cameras so far. Here's hoping for the next pentax homerun product (lens or body or anything)
