I see no 14bit raw nor advanced options for more than 3fps. AF is also unchanged, at least on the surface...

... am I right in saying that the sensor uses the Kodak technology of LRVB (Luminance + RVB) pixel matrix?

It could explain the high ISO quality increase relatively to the high pixel count...

no advancement in metering range however now you can AF at 2EV brighter... what about AF in darker? Still Safox VIII, still the same 11 points and 9 cross points, still the same 16 segment metering... no word on contrast detection AF in live view, same viewfinder

sounds like more megapixels, better IQ from other reports and some dust detector oh and perhaps an AF tracker unless thats continuous AF... and all the rest is pretty much the same-old camera

It looks like a current stub which they will update before official release. The page isn't linked anywhere on the site yet.

"CMOS matrix with a primary color filter "

Primary color array has always refered to the bayer pattern in other camera announcements and specs.

looks that it has less room between the edges of the sensor to the end. it's a bigger sensor or i am crazy?

CMOS 14 MPix sensor, 12 bit RAW, PC-contact for studio flashes, 3 fps, 3 types of dust removing. Also: LiveView, and the same (as in K10D) vertical grip (and battery as well).

One interesting thing. In "Resolution", there is "Photo" resolution. Also in "File format", there is "Photo"... I guess, video recording could appear later...

I don't think it is fake, it may be a page that is not finished yet. The link to it was first revealed at Penta club's forums (main Russian Pentax forums) just a couple hours ago without any details how the poster came up with it.

Differences from K10D
In reply to exdeejjjaaaa, Jan 23, 2008
  • New 14,6 megapixel sensor

  • Dust alert -- software system of dust detection

  • No TAv mode (yes, according to specs there's no such mode in K20D)

  • Regarding sensitivity they write: Auto, fixed 100-1600 (standard values), manual 100-3200 with possibility of ISO6400.

  • 2,7' display consisting of 230k pixels (i.e. low resolution LCD)

  • LiveView. (AF possibility in LiveView mode not mentioned, LiveView in Viewfinder not mentioned).

Those are all differences compared to K10D I have found in those specifications.

RAW is 12 bit, 3fps, 9 RAW, unlimited JPEG, the same old SAFOX VIII

may be, but for example K100D Super ( http://www.pentar.ru/catalog/product/qm-productId-eq-1255315861412493-am-page-eq-tech.htm ) has the same format of description

with the tag "photo" on their website... you are not thinking that it has any video capabilities, are you ?
