    In 1.5 to 2 years time, as usual

    Pentax always announce a new major upgrade every 1.5 years or there about in the past 7 years.

    ME! hahahaha! but to good effect or not, I dunno

    My priorities are different now.. I definitely won't be upgrading from my K-7 or buying lenses anytime soon.

    But am glad Pentax is coming out with new stuff. I think it's more for the K10D & K20D owners and those looking to make a step upwards from K-m/x. But of course, our usual suspects will always get the latest and greatest... good, because the rest of us get to play with it!

    A few months never come here, and there's news of new cameras from Pentax.. The K-5 does sounds very promising and if it is slightly cheaper, will definitely be able to take the world by storm..

    would you want it to have 1:1 magnification as well?

    hope i'm not regressing but what i really hope for is an update or re-launch of the F 1.7x TC maybe updated with SDM?

    imagine: being able to convert any MF or screw drive lens into an AF SDM lens

    By the time it hit our shores, we only have the option for 4 colors body and grip, just like the Kx!

    I still hope Pentax will come out with a full frame camera.

    Magnification of 600 mm is 12:1 and not 1:1

    I do have the A300 f2.8 though with rear converter 2 X for macro and quality of the image is not the same as dedicated macro lens. Back to macro lens for macro

    The weight of A300 f2.8

    yah wat, 1X magnificationm, you imagine shooting bird 50 metres away, it looks like ant or smaller thru your viewfinder. Its 12 x mag. Before I ask if anyone shoot macro with 600 mm, anyone own this lens here, f or FA version.?
