Interview reveals Pentax worked on Q system for five years
Five Years! "Pentaxian1" revealed in a roundtable interview at TWICE that Pentax has been working on the Q system for five years and it was the particular Q sensor that gave Pentax enough confidence to launch the system now. Not to be a Debbie Downer but I got a hazy vision of a TouchPad after reading that ;-) [via Rice High, via Voice of Reason]
In the same interview David Lee not-Roth of Nikon states that there is a path for both FX and DX and if you read between the lines in the interview it can perhaps be inferred that he is potentially hinting at the possibility of a suggestion that both D3 and D700 replacements will eventually come.
