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.!

You mean size.

That's great to hear.

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.

Interesting and quite believable given how long it took for the K-3 to reach the market. They obviously lot of effort into the big and little things, and completely eliminated the K-5 complaint list. I just spent a full day with my K-3. Wow, they hit this one out of the park. What a beautifully responsive machine.
