Contoured grip would be fantastic.

Would it have an articulating (or at least tilting) LCD?

Oh, and have that vestigial stump of a "grip" extend out to the same plane as the lens mount. From a design point of view, that's my biggest complaint with the K-01.

Love the "Judas Window" on the viewfinder hump.

That looks pretty fantastic, if they did use a similar, there needs to be a battery grip as an addition preferably.

Too similar to Mark Newson's baby. Could result in legal complications.

The old brick looks much better with a bump on the top!

Why do you have an APS-C lens mounted on it?

That EVF looks removable! Shades of the LX....

As far as I'm concerned Fuji already beat Pentax to market with what Pentax should have brought 2 years ago, minus decent video and k-mount.

It would look a bit more like the newest Sony Nex bodies. I do not understand putting a bump like a prism in the middle like the k01, and an evf to one side is in perfect position.

It looks really good, however ultimately I'd rather have great ergonomics than great looks.
