Question about the battery adaptor - K-30

Does anybody know if the K-30 will use the same AA battery adaptor as the K-r does?

I have seen the same part number quoted in some specs. Don't know where offhand though. I would bet my house that they are the same.

Thanks... I am upgrading from the K-r to the K-30 so I was hoping Pentax wouldn't play dirty pool and make you buy an entirely new one just for the K-30.

You can order 3rd party adapters from China for $6 on ebay . They will get here before the K30 release.
