.....When Pentax comes out with the K200D and K20D I do not see how they will be able to improve the photo quality anymore than it is...Sure the lower and higher ISO performance along with a little faster frames per sec, more mega pixels, I do not see as a real + either...
Well, for me I don't need more megapixels. But I would like to see a way for the user to adjust backfocus/frontfocus problems without sending the camera off to Pentax. As it is now, my 21mm DA lens is really only usable in manual focus mode. Not a problem most of the time but occasionally I'd like to be able to rely on autofocus with this lens. I also have the 70mm DA lens and that one is right on the money, autofocus-wise.

One other thing. I'd really like a metal camera body. All my other cameras, digital and film, are either aluminum or some sort of magnesium alloy, or some combination of the two. The K10D is my first "plastic" camera. I doubt that those mysterious cracks some report on the K10D would occur with a metal body. One of my K10D bodies shows this though it's pretty hard to see. I hope it doesn't develop into something more serious but I'd be much more comfortable with a metal body.
