Could you give out the conclusion as a preview. For example in the K-5 review you wrote:

"The K-5 has set many firsts for Pentax, and has already gotten the Pentax brand mentioned alongside the industry-leaders, Nikon and Canon, all over the web. It is a fantastic DSLR with exceptional image quality, fast autofocus, high sensitivity, a compact and lightweight design, weather-sealing, and shake reduction backwards-compatible with old lenses even from the screw-mount era. We highly recommend it for three groups of photographers: serious amateurs who have sufficient experience with DSLRs to be able to take advantage of all the K-5's features, outdoor photographers who frequently travel and are looking for a complete weather-resistant DSLR system, and professionals who are looking for a camera with high image quality but are on a budget. If you fall into any one of these groups, we feel the K-5 will be the perfect match for you!"

Notice how it doesnt mention the specs or design design details, just your opinion. You wouldn't be breaking anything if you do that would you?

The new Pentax K-01 review?

BRING IT ON !..... but, still awaiting the release of a full-frame, full-sealed, semi-professional, K mount rig from these two great companies - to compete with those 'other' brands!

Yeah, something like the conclusion would be cool.

I'm awaiting a retro DSLR... K1000D. Internals of a K5, but UI and dials/buttons etc. more focused on manual usage (with the A setting available on the shutter speed dial for example). Maybe a simpler exposure meter, no need for JPEG processing (if it saves money). Robust build quality. And voila, you've got my next camera.

Would certainly entertain the prospect of this baddie being my back-up camera, which sneaks up and becomes my primary camera. As mentioned elsewhere, my K-5 isn't going anywhere, but my K-7 is certainly nervous at this announcement.

Grow thread, GROW. Facebook requirements are not cool.

Sure hope the K-01 offers SOMETHING other than a "me too" approach to new products. Maybe its kit lens will be a 200-400/4 zoom!
I'd go for that.. even if it was a only a 250-600 kit lens

It's time to predict some one liners for the reviews to use, like:

I was KOD by the K-01.

Sure I want to see a review asap. The K-01 looks like a great second camera next to the K-5. Now the results need to confirm that.
