Hi Ernie,

Not trolling here. I see the k-r, k-x, and previous model were introduced one year apart-- in Sept. That would suggest that a K-r replacement would likely be announced in September-- or there abouts. But Ricoh, as the new owner may have other thoughts, though it's likely the K-r replacement was already in the pipeline long before the Ricoh deal, and in fact, that deal isn't finalized until Oct. anyway as I understand it.

I wouldn't give this any thought until it actually happens.

What do you forum members think?

see above, so to speak

I've been thinking about a K-r in addition to my K5(s) as a small body, but September is just around the corner, so will likely wait until then to see what happens. Will Pentax put the K5 sensor and processor in the K-r replacement?

too much of the below (next line :))

This is a speculation and opinion thread.

What I'd really love to see is a K body w/ articulating screen.

One has to have their dreams .....
..... and, truth be told, this is a good dream



Cheers. ernie
