Hi, I'm brand new to posting on this forum though I read it frequently. I'm a wedding photographer who uses a Fuji S3, along with a Pentax 6x7 for the large formal group shots. (Also a K100D for low-light grab shots, and an LX for occasional 35mm film use.) Anyway, I noticed that I spend as much on 120/220 film and processing each year as the price of a K20D, and since it's image quality seems to be so good, I thought I'd buy one. Of course no one in town has one in stock, but what disturbed me is that at one store I tried, which always had Pentax cameras and lenses such as K10D, 50-135mm f2.8 DA* zoom, etc.,, they suddenly have NOTHING and the salesman claims all of the following: that "Pentax is dead", Hoya is not going to continue carrying Pentax cameras, they've "suspended production", they will probably sell it all to Samsung, maybe Samsung will continue the cameras under Samsung brand name but won't honor warranties on Pentax-branded equipment, etc. etc. It all sounded a bit phony to me, but I've known the guy there since I bought my 67 from him in 2000. I'm used to B.S. about Pentax from camera-store clerks since I started hearing it in 1976, but this store always heavily featured Pentax and its sudden disappearance kind of shocked me. Has anyone else heard these rumors?
