Most of us (Pentax shooters) see Pentax rising, supported by Ricoh, not going down like they were with Hoya. The new K bodies have superb features, and auto-focus compared to your K-x is in an entirely different league.

Chatting to rep today Pentax R&D staffing is now 10X the seize it was 2 years ago.!

Also the k3 was delayed because Ricoh had a 'bitch' list from trawling forums and these each had to be addressed before approval for release.

Make of it as you will but I have no doubts the Rep believed it to be true.

Have you hefted a 50-500mm? It's a pretty long and heavy lens. I really wonder whether your daughter would use it? She'd probably be more comfortable with an HD 55-30mm WR.

You mean 55-300 and I'd agree for day shooting by an inexperienced young lady a light easily handled xx-300 is the best starter lens.
