It doesn't look much different to me, it could be a fake

Re: First photo of K-3

top right under the 3, looks like removable rubber and sticks out a bit more (towards the camera) could be another port like line out?
Looks a little fake anyway, especially around the bottom of the lens as its seems warped in places.

I just assume they are all fakes.

Focus light looks like it's shopped from the k-r.

Digicame never posted fake.

But this isn't Digicame photo. They say

"person who was sending me the picture, thank you."

Not saying it's not real, but Digicame didn't take the photo themselves

If it's not fake it's fine with me.  K-5 form and ergo's were great.

Compared to the K-5-s  and the K-7 it looks different around the K-3.

It will be fun to see when the K-3 finally arrives if this is a doctored image or not :-). Ill bookmark it.

Just like someone else commented. It is strange that the lens is warped. But, why warp the lens if you doctor the body? Beats me.

Of course it is a fake. The real one will have Ricoh on it

Differences...

are quite significant actually, which makes me think this could be the real thing.  This is a feat of photoshoping if this is a fake...

Re: Differences... and oddities...

Yep, K-5 much prettier....

By the way  it you look carefully at the  so called K-3 image, you migt notic that  the "texture" of the image of the body is very different  that that of the lens, it seems like the "lens" is a blown up image form a very small image. Doi I think someone Photoshopped the  lens over another image, which may explain the warping...

stil no conclusion abut fake or not ofcourse.

I agree, there are oddities.  This isn't an impossible fake, I can do just about the same in Xara Graphics Designer with patience and a lot of hours (perhaps 20-30 hrs)  There are differences in almost every aspects and details, proportions, angles, shapes, patterns.  A well executed fake if it is a fake, that's for sure.

If it is true I am happy, because it has one very nice feature of my K-5 limited: "To improve handling, this special-edition model comes with an exclusively designed grip that is thicker than the standard K-5 model." http://www.dpreview.com/news/2011/2/7/pentaxk5silver

Re: First photo of K-3

Thank you for posting.  Maybe Ricoh will reveal something on October 8th.

Cheers.

Well looks like I won't need a new battery or grip.

Like I said, if it's a fake.... it's really well done!  Given the size of the prism housing + flash, this suggests APS-C rather than FF.  If there were no flash, that would be different !

Re: K-3 Have WiFi?

While I want 24 MP, more AF points and good AF tracking, WiFi and tethering are important features for the new camera.  Also, add in flash sync of 1/250 sec and it could be a winner.
