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
Me too, and I will probably upgrade when the Ds does not like to work anymore (only about 8000 pics taken so a loooong way to go I hope) but by then, the DL x will probably outperform all present models an maybe even the D successor we are waiting for now...

My local dealer told me today that Pentax is releasing the new 11mp camera tomorrow in USA.

He was not sure if it was going to be badged Samsung or Pentax though.

It is not the medium format camera, that is the 22mp, it is an 11mp 35mm style Digital.

Thats all he told me. Told me to check dpreview, which I have and can't find a thing.

He seemed very very confindent of his information.

For those waiting for the new camera, I hope this is what you are waiting for.

OK, go back to the puke and throttle him for getting our hopes up

guys and gals. these long fantasy debates are to me boring.. it's JUST rumor.. i see this type of thread all over the web. debates, wishes, etc,etc.

pentax will announce when they announce. speculation is like trying to debate theology.. non-facts versus non-facts..

Crashman, which store in Perth told you this info? Im working at one of the Camera Houses and I havent heard anything (although admittedly we deal mainly in Canon and Nikon, and oo the new 30D looks oh so tempting).

Ill see what I can find out tomorow, but we dont stock a whole lot of pentax gear, which is one reason why I will probably be going with Canon (but thats a whole different topic)

Now that is far more believable, it is nice to know that when I retire in a couple of years I will have a higher level Pentax available if I want to get into photography full time. The photo included with the announcement looks like a decent successor to the D.

Camera House in Murray Street Mall, they have a quite a big line up of Pentax, but then again they have a big line up of everything.

Okay so I was one megapixel out on the size of the camera and a couple of days ahead of the true release date, but the goss I got was valid. :shock:

Pity I got sledged byBrendan PKon the DPReview forum, some people, I don't know...:blah:

Has anyone got a link with photos of this camera???
