First images of Penta K-5 appearing...

Apparently, this is a picture of a K-5:



Here is the image with a little adjusting(high hopes )


So what do you guys think... real or fake or what?

I just posted a similar (but worse) enhanced picture in another thread. I compared that to a K-7 picture and they look 100% identical. It's either a K-7 or they look the same from this angle.

I would imagine that there's a pretty good chance that the K-5 will use exactly the same body as the K-7

edit: and if not the same it could be extremely similar

Are the button assignments the exact same?

I'm hoping someone is kind enough to take an image of a K-7 at the same angle so we could do an overlay which might.
Unfortunately, I don't own a K-7

Well the K20D looks like the K10D so this could be the same for the K-5 and K-7 to use the same body. Or just a prank from a guy who knows we would jump on a mountain for this picture.

This K-5 clearly was a snitch. Don't be surprised if it is disappeared.

Well apparently the K-5 body will be almost identical to the K-7 body so it doesn't surprise me.

If it were real, the background would be something else than the typical messy computer-desk of a random internet user.

The random internet user has an Canon 1DS MkIII

I guess we'll know for sure in September.
