Samsung and Pentax come together for camcorder?

With all the announcements of m4/3 camcorders coming, it makes me wonder if this could renew the inferred withered partnership with Samsung?

If you remember the rumors at the start of the year, there was all this talk of JVC buying Pentax. What is JVC known for? Camcorders

The push for m43 camcorders seems to give thos would be filmmakers the ability to get a wide array of glass on a simple budget, far lower than RED can give them.

Pentax has great glass through the years, and wouldn't some old manual lenses give an artistic filmmaker a lot of room to be creative?

Samsung needs a buyer for its sensors, because if Pentax shifted over to Sony sensors for every camera, their APS sensor would only be used in the NX10....

Samsung may think a partnership with Pentax for a camcorder gives them use of high-end optics, something they can market better than rebadged lenses under Schneider name....

A partnership may also open up deal with Pentax on NX-style camera, which needs partners and seems like, in some ways, is better than m4/3

Deal may lead to video cameras using 645 glass for premium filmmakers....

So, without any info or evidence to it, I make the prediction that Samsung and Pentax renew their partnership, this time with the focus on APS-sensored camcorders that are marketed with Pentax glass

The Samsung - Pentax partnership is over. Samsung doesn't really have anything else to offer and Pentax doesn't really want to get into the camcorder business. I just don't see it, really.

Without any evidence, I predict that Tata Motors will purchase Hoya-Pentax to supply windshield glass and backup cameras for their line of fine automobiles. Haven't you hear the rumours yet? And the K7 line will be adapted as high-end video cams to fuel the next generation of Bollywood production. This must be true, it's all over the place.
