I hope something really BIG will come...

Otherwise Pentax is running out of fans in Germany. Most big eletronic markets do no longer sell pentax. In some german forums, you can buy a K5 for 400€ with a shutter count <7000 (330 € with 20k actuations), and even some basic parts (like the D-Li90 battery) are hard to get.

The re-announment of Limiteds (more red, less green, price +10%) is not just what I was waiting for. A redesign of the 15 and 21mm (half a stop plus, a bit sharper, less disortion) would have been something to rave about. Or a set of WR Limiteds with a reliable SDM or DC AF.

As I will (would like to) stay with Pentax, I am looking forward to see something BIG next week.
