These guys from pentax are a funny bunch. Offer a 18 MP camera with a release date to be announced later and an upway path up to 30 MP to be announced later.
They should do it right away, offering a 22 MP model and a 30 MP model. if they keep the price of 8 grand for the small one or a little more, they would sell alot of those.
Too much is unclear. Is the upgrade to 30mp in one step, or a vague intention down the line? How many intermediate stapes, and when? Why stop at 30mp?
18mp should still offer excellent performance, but its below the 22mp ZD, which is already being sold in discounted lens/body bundles in the UK. Of course there is a lot more to a camera than pixel count. Great to see Pentax offering a MF alternative.
