Naveed Akhtar: Go with the mainstream fullframe camera guys .. it will take ages, to fuji, to develop lenses for this new system.
I could be wrong, but it seems Pentax shooters are mostly hobbyists (like me), not professionals or typical consumers. So having a full range of native, contemporary lenses day one probably isn't critical to the relative success of a Pentax FF.
Tabaplar: I really like the aesthetic of this. Simple, clean, purposeful. It's obviously a mock-up or render (?), and not showing the model number, Shake Reduction logo (if it has it), or amber remote window, so will look a lot less stark in reality, if it ends up looking anything like this or even comes into existence at all!
Even if there are no big surprise features, I'd be very happy with this as long as the image quality is there and it's fast: fast focus, fast interface, fast frame rate.
Agreed. In camera SR was a reason I went with Pentax when I bought my first DSLR years ago (K10D).
Now I see the 3D print striping at the lower left.

Spec wise this looks like a great update. But aesthetically, I find this design incredibly awkward and kind of baffling.
As the semi-professional model, the design of the K-5 is logical, functional, restrained....completely fit for purpose, and I think that it looks (and works) great. As a consumer model, the K-01 has a somewhat whimsical, design forward aesthetic, but to me it also looks great....it's an indulgent design, but it is cohesive and it has a clear concept.
This on the other had, seems completely out of left field to me....it's design DNA seems to have little relation to any of Pentax's current interchangeable lens cameras. It looks "styled" not "designed". To me it looks like a decade old street bike, or a pair of basketball shoes.
The K-5 and K-01 are cameras that I would buy, at least partially, because of their design. This is a camera that I would never buy because of it's design. I REALLY hope that the K-5 successor doesn't look anything like this.
In the exposure adjustment image showing three variation's of a woman's portrait, it looks like there is a floating palette in the bottom right corner.
What is this? How does one enable floating palettes over a full screen image in Lightroom?
