Asahiman should be careful, with the mood on this forum he might get lynched for getting out hopes up about Sept 5th

We have been going through this cycle of anticipation, extended buildup, and then nothing.  Asahiman is just another in a short list of folks we on the forum had high hopes for but now should disregard.

What this experience says is that the company is secretive, they do things in their own good time, and I am sad to say have little concern with maintaining the loyalty of a shrinking base of users.   Funny, with a new announcement I had assumed I would be purchasing a new body.  When I did I had promised to give my son my old K5, two da* Pentax lens, and a sigma macro.  Now he has to wait.  Or if things keep on the way they have been going maybe it is time to just move on.
