- AA filter less.
- 100% viewfinder at 1.0X.
- Black body marketed first, followed by Silver colour later, first marketed at around 120,000 Japanese Yens (i.e., US$1200) for the body-only price, no kit.

And then also another rumour from yet another poster for additional information:

- New camera (K-3) will be on show at Salon de la Photo at Paris from 7 to 11 November at Paris.
- New DA 18-70 F2.8 lens will be announced together.

Rice High rumors

Wating for the 24 MP, and got some hints about 32 MP, but now it is 20 MP. 20MP is not all that much more than 16 MP. So, whats the big deal?

There is the rumor that K-3 could use the same technology like this

If it's the *same* technology, I expect Hassy's lawyers will be very busy!
