Re: Do you like??

Is this a teaser about the K-1ii?

When Pentax makes a second generation of a particular model, it usually turns out to be a superb camera. For example, there were the ZX-5n and PZ-1P (I still have two of them) from film days. From digital days we have the K-5II and IIs, and the K-3II.

All right... what is this? An official teaser yet to be published, something you've made up by darkening a K-3 image?

And is the shutter speed indicative of something significant?

I'm guessing some interesting news in 8 days? I assume that's a date in reverse order... otherwise we might be waiting till 2218 A.D before we get an updated K1

It will fascinating to know. enlarging and playing with the gamma of the image it looks like a the top plate of a K1 - the extra dial on the top image left becomes visible, but the lens mount bulge is curved like the K7/5/3 while on the K1 it is square, so I think it is a new camera.

The date is written xx 02 18 . Not being American, Ricoh don't use "least significant in the middle" date format.  So it could be any day this month, not the 18th specifically.

Europe and Japan wouldn't write 18th Feb as "02 18".  What you're seeing is part of a date which the xx of 02 2018"

Re: Do you like??

I am guessing that it is a repackaging K1 in a small and lighter body with some enhancement through firmware update.
