Thanks. I'd love to know more about the 18-270. Like is it made in Pentax factory, does it have SDM or Tamron's technology, etc. I doubt they'd be forthcoming about any of that but it couldn't hurt to mention it. ;)

Adam,
I look forward to your impressions following your time at Photokina. Will you have an opportunity to ask specific, and perhaps probing, questions of the Pentax crew?

Long term customers tend to buy and sell lenses, so not so much.

True, but it may also reflect their new approach to selling their system - Camera = Inkjet printer and Lenses = Ink. Sell the cameras cheap and get them on the ongoing purchases. :(

Given that the II has the standard sensor and IIs is different it makes some sense that the IIs will be slightly more expensive. There is also the production and returns issues to keep in mind as well. The IIs is likely to sell fewer numbers so costs would be slightly higher but returns of it are likely to be higher as well. Why? Because some will not understand that there is a downside to no AA filter and when they see those patterns in their images they will complain that the camera is poor, not working, etc. and return it. This will add costs to the sale too.
