Pentax K7D ... rumour has it that ...

There is a lot of hype these days about the shortcoming release of a new Pentax "K7D" body. I have read all sorts of comments and "rumours" all over and it seems that Pentax is finally up to something quite interesting.
The official news for the release of this new camera should be around the middle of this month.
Anyone has a thread going on this yet?

I read somewhere that it might be square format. Now that would be interesting!

That is the MF camera they are also developing. Rumour control has been flagging this up for some time now.

Not sure if is going to be 6x6 or 6x4.5 though.

Oh really? Good news, although with the full frame DSLRs out now, I'm not sure I believe that MF is required any more.

Then again, the difference between 120 and 35mm film is so big, perhaps I will be eating my words.

Re: Pentax K7D ... rumour has it that ...

The MF has been "in development" for quite awhile, tho I thought I read somewhere that they had flagged the idea.

I'm a bit miffed at pricing here in NZ tho. I rang the distributors here about the K20 about a week ago, hoping it had come down a bit due to K7. Only to find they had upped the price for wholesale customers and now the wholesale price is about 2.5x what I can buy it for at retail on the Pentax US Website.

So looking at flights to HK instead. LOL.

I need to upgrade so its good timing but not so convinced by the local prices. Won't be keeping NZ's economy growing by buying on shore...

"(cof)" yer didnt hear this here ok?....
Friend of mine did similar... to avoid embarrassing (tax) questions at customs, they bought the camera home in their normal camera bag, along with all their normal equipment....(I've had it ages... honest...)

Not wanting to go without the instructions books, box, receipt, etc, took a padded envelope, and posted the "Bumf" back to themself at their home address marked "Replacement Instruction Book".....

LOL. Cool did not hear anything.

Am going to query this with the Pentax agents here. Seems rather strange. All our other agents give us fairly reasonable wholesale to retail prices.

Re: Pentax K7D ... rumour has it that ...

Well, I have found all sorts of news and "post-rumours" because the camera is actually going to be available starting July 2009.
I won't bother to give links but if one wants to look it up, it's all over the web.
Very good news at at that too.

Well pricing here is not so bad (well trade price!!). No chance of getting the K20 through the distributors anymore so will either have to go retail or buy the K-7. Features and improvements from the 20 make it worthwhile tho I think.
