I believe something is coming out.
Seems like Canon is announcing something soon too and Nikon just did with the D7100 and APS-C compact.
Question is what is it exactly?

Will be very happy with a APS-C PnS camera for travel purpose, maybe Ricoh GRD V?

Just for reading fun. My own speculation of the 5 DSLRs based on info gathered from web/magazine predictions:
1. K-300: 16MP, APS-C, colourful entry level budget DSLR, similiar to K-30 but no WR. Price range ~US$400. Availablity: Summer 2013.
2. K-3: 24MP, APS-C, replacement for K5 with added features like focus peaking,etc. Price ~US$1200. Availablity: Summer 2013.
3. K-3s: 24MP, APS-C, no AA filter version of K3. Price ~US$1300. Availablity: Summer 2013.
4. K-? (maybe K-F1): 24MP, Full frame, Price range ~ slightly<US$2K. Winter 2013?
5. K-?s (maybe K-F1s): 24MP, Full frame, no AA filter version of K-?. Price range ~ US$2K. Winter 2013?

Other models/stuff:
1. 645Dii (Availability June 2013),
2. APS-C Ricoh GR Digital V (Availability: September 2013)
3. Of course, a new K-mount FF kit lens.

Even Canon/Nikon or Sony never announced 5 dSLR cameras at the same time, or within the same year. You guys think Ricoh/Pentax can do more than those guys?

I'm afraid it might end up be just 5 dSLR camera related products instead of the cameras.

The rumor itself says already it's not about 5 individual products, most probably it will contain variations of the same cameras. Who knows, maybe it's just one camera in 5 colors. :)

Haha... FF? Let's hope they settle these first:

1) Proper functioning flash with WR
2) A bit more WR prime
3) Wireless flash control trigger
4) New Ricoh model with WR?
5) Finish up their stupid lens roadmap already...

Not going to happen for $2k.
Bro... How can you doubt Pentax?! Blasphemy!

Possible lo... Nikon D600 could do it.. Pentax one will cost S$1999.99 with kit lens made out of 100% plastic parts including plastic lens, fixed aperture f/4 and f/8 only, Holga-style!

No pop up flash and no LED screen(as small as film days right?), single dial, single AF point(cross sensor though!), and bam! No pop up flash! How cool and unique will that be!! All for S$1999.99!
