Colors: Meh.

Specs: Wow, that is a big step up on the entry level. Add a top LCD and weather sealing for a midline model and I might forget about getting a K7 as my next body.

I am not comfortable with the AA batt choice. The proprietary (not quite indeed) batt of K10D-20D-7D are really steady and long lasting

Also I have high hope of the fast burst rate. Hope its focus tracking is better than earlier versions

Henry or Pentax has a full page ad in Toronto Star today for the launching of the camera (3 days demo and deal as well)

interesting
really interesting
i am wondering how it compares to my K10D, should i need to replace it
it seems to have some nice plusses
not sure about the batteries though, nicads here are expensive
and a pentamirror? hmmm

as for colour, i do recall C***n over here touting their camera as a fashion accessory and as long as all black is an option what does it matter
a camera in your footy teams colurs maybe
