I like the 24fps jpeg - that's movie speed basically (PAL anyway) - an SLR that can do 18mp movies - way cool

Looks fun. Maybe some of you good at editing and Photoshop,
could make a try as to how a Pro K5 in the future would look like ?

Possibly it could be made, from some of the old photos of the
prototype MZ-D :
Pentax cancel 6mp digital SLR: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

(I actually like that it had a separate screen, for clear indication of WB
- Pentax K-1, the DSLR that never was )

Just like the Nikon fans did, with the possible new 18 MP 1.1 crop
camera :

High-end Nikon SLR rumors heat up | Tech news blog - CNET

PentaxLife Rumors on 1.13x sensor for Nikon D3 are getting strong

On a Pro size Pentax camera, the LCD screen should be 3.0", like
the Eos 1DMIII is.

(Just if you're bored some time, and want to fuel our CBA ;-)

This "advanced" K18D will soon be an anachronism..

Someone should archive these fun posts, because it won't be too long before the specifications (above) are outdated and hilarious due to the antiquity of the technology. I remember seeing a Sergeant Bilko episode once. Col. Hall said to Bilko "Bilko, you've used up all your leave entitlements until the year 1973" - The audience laughed their heads off (it was 1957, at the time). - 1973 is now 34 years in the past...... In 30 years time the camera, described above, will be on someones shelf as an example of what old technology of 2015 had to offer. Mark my words...
