not false just market placement

The K-5 1/8000s - top model
K-01 - 1/4000s - cheaper model
K30 - 1/6000s - intermediate model

Pentax is like Porsche.

First there was the 911 and it keeps evolving. The current one (997?) is the K-5

Then they introduced the Boxster (cut the roof off) and its the entry level model.
This is kind of like the K-01 (cut the prism off a DSLR).

The Boxster has a (kind of) same flat 6 in the back, 2 door sports car layout but its a bit slower and cheaper than the 911. Slower and cheaper than the K-5.

Then they introduced the Porsche Cayman, the middle one. The the K30 of the porsche line. It has the roof (pentaprism) attached, same flat 6 (sensor) in the back.

How is it priced? Its right in the middle of the 911 (K-5) and the Boxster (K-01).

How fast does it go. You guessed it, (1/6000s) its in the middle slower then the 911 (1/8000s) and faster then the Boxster (1/4000s).

Would you buy a top price 911 if it was slower than the lower models?

I'm dont' want to liken the Pentax 645D to the Porsche Cayenne SUV.

Sure the 645D is bigger, heavier and slower but the 645D is much nicer to look at then that hideous fatboy.
