K1D rumours?

We heard some rumours about speculative pro-series Pentax K1D last year. Do we have any further/new information about it?

Rumours said it would be released 2007.... cool if true

Nothing specific however something around YE 2007 is likely. The K10 was originally designed to compete at the D200 level and was downspecced in response to the A100 and D80, so there is a more upmarket version already in design and probably prototype stage that would not take huge expense to polish up a bit and put on the market.

Expect a D200+ level camera with some seriously cool features and even faster AF.

In the short term more likely to upgrade the K100 in response to the D40 which is selling like cheap teeshirts in a heatwave...

My guess.

Whatever happened to 645D. [my guess] Perhaps they're waiting for prices of the 30MP sensor to come down to keep the price of 645D at sane levels[my guess].

I guess it's more important for Pentax to deliver on the DA* lenses that's already been announced...

Pity that 645D release is delayed. I am anticipating 645n for a while. I knew some people really snatched the 645 Fa lenses very quick every time these lenses are listed on ebay. Real quick!

I hope 645D is going to be less than 5000 US dollars. That would make my dream come true owning a medium format digital cam!! I had seen mamiya producing some of the most oustanding images ever in my life. (Japanese photography magazines got so many beautiful pictures using this camera)
