Looks exciting....
Now, what to get first....
The new camera??
The new lens(es?)
As with lenses I'll settle for the 16-50, as I have the other FA* lenses....
Going to be an expensive winter......
Better stop giving in to my LBA for a few months.....

This is bad news!

I have been wanting a fast,compact and reasonably wide prime for some time now, and have been seriously comtemplating the FA 20/2.8. But then I saw an earlier version of the roadmap, suggesting that a new prime would come along around 20mm. And it did - and its f3.2!!

Well, back to the FA20/2.8 - or maybe Sigmas 20/1.8, despite its size...?

Definetely NOT 3.2

I wonder what size sensor they are going to be using for the 10 megapixel camera? The reason I ask is that I had an FZ30 for about a month before getting the DS, and I quickly saw why more pixels aren't necessarily better (the FZ30 had less dynamic range, more noise and captured less detail than my 3 year old Sony F717). I'm now really leary of high pixel count cameras when the sensor size stays the same. The DS has been SO much better than the FZ30, suits me much better, so I hope that the new Pentax isn't a step backward. Can others re-assure me on this?

It will be a normalAPS-C-sensor with shake-reduction

Very curious about the new Pentax, being a long time fan.

Does this continue the PK mount as is the case with the istDs?

Type of batteries? Lens intercahngeability? Will this be picked up by Samsung?

Any info you have so far would be appreciated. ..regards...
