Initial thoughts about the Pentax K-70

This whole thing is a tad confusing to me. I would expect Pentax to want some kind of splash in three months around Photokina, so I'm expecting even more news in the fairly near future. Even if my K-30 were to succumb to motor issues in the next few months, I don't think I'd feel free to buy a K-70 right away {even though it looks like a wonderful camera} before I know what other choices might be right around the corner.

Yeah, and neither works with Pentax-M lenses as well as some great-grandparent, great-great-grandparent, or whatever, did.
We can say we are disappointed in what they left out, but I am much more excited by what they've included.
If I had a choice today between buying the K-30 I bought last year or waiting a few months for a K-70, I can tell you with absolute certainty that I would use my Q-7 for a few more months while I waited for the K-70
{I'm guessing that the things left out would have had a cost in resources - such as firmware memory - or actual money, that the designers thought no longer justified it}

I usually call a camera a "failure" if I use it for less than four years, but even if the motors, etc, hold up, I will not wait three years before I buy a K-70 or similar camera, and if I buy that camera because I want its features more than I want the features of the K-30, I will not call the K-30 a "failure".
