In the last few weeks, there have been a few new rumors (supported with unverified photos) that indicate new DSLR cameras are coming soon from Pentax at this year's PMA. One of the biggest tipoffs happened in the last day or so, when a Samsung GX-20 apparently was showcased on a Norwegian website, and consequently pulled from the site after a short while. As we all know, Samsung's "G" DSLR cameras are rebadged (and slightly remodeled) Pentax DSLR cameras. Among the specifications for this Samsung camera, which could be similar to a rumored K20D, is mention of a 14MP CMOS sensor, Live View, and the return of ISO 3200. Also, pictures have been floating around of the rumored K200, which possibly integrates features from the K10D into a package similar to the K100D Super, including a port for a battery grip.
Personally, I suppose any of the pictures could be real, because they don't show anything demonstrably unfeasible, and everything looks very appealing and likely to be competitive and successful. Rumors wouldn't be so popular if they didn't seem possible. However, it's important not to get carried away into the mystical land of What-Luxuries-The-Future-May-Hold, a place where you can lose your mind. And I take issue with Gizmodo charaterizing Pentax's lens line up as uninspiring... that's a thoroughly daft remark for them to make. Pentax hasn't announced anything yet about new cameras and mum is still the word. Stay tuned.
