That is possibly their only hope for a long-term future. Could we see them eventually becoming Nokia, or Google, or Tesco!!
Returning to the reality of the K5, isn't it rather strange that it now has many delighted owners worldwide but I have not been able to find a single expert full review anywhere (apart from the DxOmark sensor review). AP does not even list it as a forthcoming review in December and January. What's going on?
Does PhotoRadar have a full review planned?
Also, there is no sign of the 18-135 supposedly available as a kit lens with the K5.
Is there still a Pentax UK or has Japan given up on us completely?
