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+.

Digicam Info

I'd love the 135-380 f4-5.6 but only if the quality matches/exceeds the Nikon 80-400 f4-5.6 and the price is more reasonable. With the reduced focal length range, Pentax has a great opportunity to sell pretty well. Let's hope this isn't a $700 cheapie with mediocre image quality. I think they could easily sell this for $1500 provided the image quality was up to snuff. A weather sealed lens would be great and this lens would become the "safari" lens in the Pentax system.
