New Camera?

Has this image been discussed? Camera on the top left looks new?

Re: New Camera?

That's a much-clearer image of a camera which has been discussed for the past week here and elsewhere. The most-seen photograph was made by a blurry phone-cam and was maddeningly un-sharp.

Hmmm...

You just made my Sunday morning

As I still have nearly perfect vision the blurry pictures were giving me a headache

I don't have anything to add on a speculative front but I am waiting to replace my K10D so this is good news.

Re: New Camera?

I tried to figure this out... looks like we're in for a new set of cameras and possibly a 4 level system

Re: New Camera?

No, it's replacement for K20D, but it will not be called K30D (something like K-m for whole world and K2000 for North America)

Wow!

The new Pentax looks small, complex, and awesome!

Looks too small for FullFrame...maybe a 1.3 crop sensor?

Hotshoe contact seem to indicate the AF540 and AF360 will work.

I really admire the sharp line (vs. the curves of the K20D). It looks like a pro camera.

Any guesses as to what kind/type sensor it has? Hopefully it's a new Samsung with better low-light capabilities...

I'm excited!

Re: New Camera?

I was so busy looking at the one on the far left I didn't notice the other one that looks new.

Re: New Camera?

Interesting indeed. Any event upcoming where they might actually announce any new models?

Probably the same sensor as the K20D (plus some tweaks/evolutions on the circuitry and/or processing).

100% APS-C makes sense for Pentax.

Also...

Look at the second camera from the right...

Look at how far the DA18-55 kit lens protrudes - Wow, again! EFV?

This also looks to be an equally startling new camera - looks to be a new Pentax with an Electronic Viewfinder (EFV) .......... that takes K-mount lenses.

My imagination?

Wow --- Again!

No other new cameras

The other cameras are clearly the K20D, K200D and KM.

The perspective is odd which doesn't help.

New machine looks pretty sharp.

My mistake...

The second camera from the right looks like a standard K200D. No EVF.

The only new camera seems to be the one on the extreme left.

Oops.

My bad.

Re: New Camera?

The one on the left reminds me a lot of the original ist D. If they actually listened to a bunch of us who wanted effectively a FF refresh of it, I'm glad I've been saving up!

A K20 sensor would make it quite a bit less appealing unless it was priced well.

Re: New Camera?

My guess is, that it will have a digital preview in the viewfinder, what do you think?

Yeah that makes more sense to me than stepping up the megapixel arms race...
