Pentax K-z: K-r successor?
Rumors are Heating Up
By PF Staff in Pentax Rumors on Mar 20, 2012
Our colleagues over at Photo Rumors have posted what they claim to be a blurred-out photo of the successor to the K-r. All we know is that it's name also starts with "K-" (and might end with a z), and, like its predecessors, its colors will be highly customizable, perhaps to an even larger degree than was the case with the K-r. You can read more about this on the forum, and view the leaked image.
What we're pretty sure about here at PentaxForums is that the K-r successor will have a 100% viewfinder like the K-5/k-7 have, as Pentax has promised this feature for all future DSLRs. We would speculate that the new camera will inherit the great movie mode capabilities of the newly released Pentax K-01 as well as the improved contrast detect auto-focus for use in live view.
We expect to hear more about the K-r's successor when we get closer to the summertime, whereas we will have to wait until the fall to hear details about the successor to the K-5.
