Yeah, yeah, I know it's just rumors which have been spreading around for a while, but I'm pretty sure we'd see these cameras very soon:

K-5: upgrade of K-7, fixed K-7's problems and more.
K-r: upgrade of K-x (K-m --> K-x --> K-r?), probably can take both lithium battery and standard AAs.
EVIL: one of the kind, definitely interesting and different from all the other EVILs
P&S DCs: a few new models which look even fancier than I-10 and H90 :cool:

Pentax ROCKS!

Would be most interested in the EVIL... how different.. :think:
Hopefully can use all pentax current lens with ease is the best. :heart:
A Good VF and LV ( Hope can focus faster, which they improve on the K-7, think they should have improved even more.)
And Inbuild SR, this is really different from the rest.. :bsmilie:
Think i am thinking and asking too much, with all this, this would be more expensive then K-r? lolx.
K-5, no money for that.. Stick to my K-7. :sticktong

Realistically, it would take at least another year before you can get k-7 at $800. Supposing the launch price of the k-5 is around what the k-7 was, it would cost around $1.7k and I believe early-adopters will not be tat many. Only when k-5 falls to some $1.2k then one may find a $800 k-7.

adui, when did pentax take out the SR from the body? Why do you need to put in something that already in existence :think:

BTW, Samsung looks like has a new sensor. Looks like Sony type with on board A/D converter with twice as much channels as compared with k-7. (4 against 8 output digital parallel channels on the new one)

10 FPS... :)

GEEZ, I'm a sucker on the K-7 sensor.
