This site is usually pretty close to the money, I don;t think they got into all the hysterical chatter about the K3 having raw video, an additional motor (where the earplug was) etc. They are just predicting a new Pentax K-60 camera and two lenses (135-380mm f/4-5.6 and 18-70mm f/2.8-4.5). More mainstream and more likely, although they do have info about the TC, it is not on their list for CP+.

Thank you for the link. There's also an interesting article on there showing the new Pentax WG's now branded and called the Ricoh WG.

Rumored specs on the alleged K-60 seem pretty interesting. I wonder if it would cannibalize K-3 sales, though. Especially if it's 24 mp AA-less. If the specs were correct, I'd be more apt to get a K-60 over the K-3 as ostebsibly you'd get similar IQ. I don't care about video, or selectable AA which I'd never use. Or dual SD card slots. AND it claims wifi, so the whole flucard thing would be moot. Doesn't seem like a smart move by Pentax in my opinion. If it is a myth, I'll upgrade to the K-3 from my K-5.
