I'd rather say: be patient, Photokina 2012 is just one show.

And it's not so bad; maybe we didn't see products we'd actually buy (yes, I own a K-5) but they managed to make a very strong statement about their commitment: to the K-mount line (the 560mm, previously sacked by Hoya, will finally be launched), to the 645 line (a new lens, and with optical stabilization) and even to the Q line.

Now, one must be a hardcore naysayer to deny they are and will be moving forward. And unlike those, I'm prepared to spend some money when Pentax will show us something interesting (and affordable).
