"Market Launch at the end of 2015"...means they will announce it's availability then...that it will be in the shops in mid-2016?   <_<

It's pretty early along, the sample in the photo is a plastic still warm from the 3D printer, you can see the printing topography clearly (click for high res):

PMA 2001: Today we got an exclusive hands-on with Pentax's new 6 megapixel digital SLR. At this stage they have an early working prototype which will power up and operate, the onboard software is still a bit rough but the body, controls and operation are already pretty much there.
Sale date
Summer 2001

...and that was a working prototype!  The new new one still barely a plastic mock-up!  


  Come on Dave lighten up it's party time!
