Doesn't even look like a KS-1. Isn't the grip different? And looks like an articulating screen on the back.

Maybe this is a new large sensor bridge camera?

Probably because he is questioning if the new lens that seems to be soon introduced by Pentax, is good for a K-01... or more compact that the regular kit lens.

Whoa, that looks like a beast of camera. The lens there, as long as it is is K-mount, will work on the K-01. That lens is very compact, but I don't think its an XS lens, and I don't think its specifically made for mirrorless. I doubt Pentax will make a K-01 with mirrorless-style lenses, but I would really like to see that. This lens is on the right path

It's in a locked position by no FL, so this is a collapsible kit lens. It would definitely be a good idea for many reasons.. But could such a lens be made WR, I wonder?

The camera and lens have been pre-announced for CES. More details to follow.

It appears to be a collapsible sort of zoom that locks in a closed position. The button on lower left (facing outward) indicates unlock, then manual zooming.

The camera looks like a K-50 successor.

Interesting, though a k-50 (or k-500) replacement is to be expected. 20mp sensor??
