Re: And a picture!

I think this is a good cause for celebration!

Absolutely! I have my money set aside.

If they're showing a picture, it means it's coming sooner rather than later.

maybe... They do say the reference model is subject to change.

And what do i see:

1. a JOYSTICK!!!! OK, this means they worked on AF, which is already pretty good, if you have a Kp / K1ii and modern lens. But the joystick was missing for sure.

2. Kp / K1 style top mode dials, and a big top screen

3. Sensor under the viewfinder

To which I'll add:

4. I don't see a little seam on the top indicating a pop-up flash. it might be that this, at least currently, is following the K3ii precedent of dropping the flash in favor of an internal GPS.

5. It's not clear that the rear screen articulates.

Both those said--it's a reference model, not written in stone. And I want one <g>
