Take a look at any K5/II/s SD card slot, cramming in another one would be quite the trick. If they make the body larger, yes.

Yep, with no body change it would not be possible.

They could either increase the height (and relocate the remote socket), or push the battery forward.

It would seem that when the D7100 was announced, including their price point, Pentax/Ricoh must have crapped in their collective trousers. P/R were expected to announce the K3 earlier this year... they obviously had second thoughts, regrouped and probably went on double/triple shifts to kick something out only 7 months or so later.

There was a rumor that the image quality which could be obtained with the available sensor(s) was not up to their standards.

Looking at the D7100, Nikon decided to launch anyway.

We shall see what we shall see. I hope PR can do a great job considering.
