Happen to come across this while surfing around. It wouldn't be far-off from Pentax's usual strategy -so to me it looks legit.

I don't know why they're complaining, the entry-level camera for Pentax has always been fun.

The thing is, they have to differentiate themselves from the other brands, otherwise whats the diff between Nikon, Canon, Sony, etc. Featurewise they are pretty much on par (within the same category - of course).

For something more professional looking, the k-5 replacement with the standard black (or silver)?

That said, I would really like to customise one for myself.

Aiyo... The pic is obviously KZ... Most likely I believe it will have K5 sensor... Unless new sensor usage which will mean K5 upgrade soon too! Yay!

Sooner or later Pentax will definitely build a FF due to the increase in FF bodies which I believe will lower the price of producing FF bodies and also the prices and therefore will lead to the APSC being a "common" camera and the FF being a more "pro" as what current APSC are now.. Way of the world and technology.. But before that, I think lenses are more important! :D

*LBA kicks in* Hee!!

With all those retro camera these days, maybe they will put the anniversary model into production as the new Kr/k5 replacement?

Actually that looks better than the new Oly EM-5. I'm not too sure why people like it so much, it is a pale comparison to OM1 and OM2 (two of my top 10 favourites).

Instead of the sloping shoulders, a K5 + spotmatic hybrid look, I think will work nicely.
