I really just don't care about wifi at all. I suppose a pro in studio would find it useful, but I don't see how much an amateur/enthusiast would benefit.

Depending on how strong the signal is I would love it.

I suspect I can live without it just like I plan to live without a K20D.

Instant just isn't that important in my life, but then I don't particularly like cell phones either.

I see value in it. I do believe the bandwidth/speed is enough to be useful.

They are up to "n" now, much faster apparently.

Wifi capability would be nice to see for the sake of competitiveness with Canikon, and would be a boon to some prospective K20D users. I would only rarely find it useful, personally. There are other improvements to the initial K20 spec that would interest me much more, such as 14-bit RAW files and improved auto focus. OK, yeah, maybe even faster burst rates in full resolution!

I see camera's WiFi capability as something like camera in a telephone. Something that is not needed, never used, but still costs you some additional $$. No, I don't want it at all.

I certainly wouldnt mind an improved tethered shooting experience. PP'ing stuff while you shoot would certainly save time while doing product shoots or strobist stuff.

I was thinking in terms of the way Samsung is doing it muself... in the grip not the camera. With K20D backward compatibility with the existing grip, use that, or spend more for a WiFi grip that has it; in either case no increase in cost of the camera body.

That is the way I was seeing it. Also being built into the grip would also mean it could be used with the K10D as well.

WiFi and cellular, Like the Verizon EVDO network, which has speeds up to like 1.5 megabytes per second :-) Then you could upload your pics instantly from anywhere that has a cell signal.
