I bet this is purely a rumour which will never come true as this is contradictory to the BJP report which is nearly official:-
http://www.bjp-online.com/public/sho...ml?page=315495

All evidence so far showing that there will be no new Pentax DSLR for show in PMA other than an *ist DL2. Afterall, it maybe a hoax.

I think that's a rumor (or a dream?)

As far as I know the next pentax will come early this summer (may-june?) and it will be a "low-level-DL".

An "upper-DS" and probably something between those two will follow.

And Samsung will bring a 10 (not 11) megapixel-cam with k-mount and Schneider-lens in September (photokina)....

11MP full (or fuller) frame?????

Nope, a full frame 35mm isn't coming from Pentax this year. Pentax will stay with the APS-C format for entry level to semi-pro/pro models for at least two more years, and probably even longer.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I can't find the contradiction, where is it? BJP only tells that a camera, probably regarded as "high-end amateur" by the readers of BJP (which means D200 and 5D level, since all cameras below the top-end from Canon and Nikon are purely for amateurs), is planned for the Photokina show. I can't find any statement in this article about no new DSLR's showing at the PMA show, and I can't find any statement that Pentax are *not* working on other DSLR's than the "high-amateur" destined for Photokina. There's room in the market for several cameras below this "high-end" and just because the article says nothing about them doesn't automatically mean that they don't exist.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Regarding the 11Mp, I believe more in a DS2 replacement with Cypress 9Mp sensor (to bereleased this spring/summer)But Pentax may surprise us all.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"In the next few days we will know. Making announcements on wednesdays seems a bit odd, it's better at the end of the week since then the news can be alive during the weekend. The last announcement Pentax made was on a Thursday. They have also announced things at Fridays and Sundays. (the DS was announced a Sunday, I'm starting to feel a bit nostalgic now... -sob-... what a beautiful announcement there was. Those were the times... )

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"But we'll just have to wait and see...

I'm waiting....:?:shock::?
Not that serious, just bored at work:?. Need more rumors to help me through the time...

No immediate need to upgrade either, but nice to go you can go to higher specs, when my present Ds sort of dies on me

I believe the 11MP camera is their 645 format camera..NOT the DSLR's. Wendell

I have faith they will deliver a D replacement, definitely - just not for a few months

And when it comes I think it will be a good'n

And I will not buy it because I havea lovely DS and need lenses more than a new camera!

However, I like most would just like to see Pentax deliver an upgrade path
