First Pentax evil(K-2) specs… (with lol images)

According to this site these are the specs for the new Pentax(K2), Evil camera though the image seems vaguely familiar(lol).

  • The new APS-C frame 14 million pixel sensor
  • Body image stabilization, the first SR with APS-C single power
  • Flip-type LCD viewfinder screen
  • HD video capture features, specific unknown

... the end

I call it a fake.

I mean yes, there is probably going to be an EVIL from Pentax, but these photos and general specs are most likely to be fabrications / guesses.

It's a fake (the non removal of the LV button is a given) but a very nice one. Much nicer than a GF-1 or Pen IMHO. I'd only wish an integrated EVF like the NX-10 but this would be just about the perfect mirrorless camera. Not sure about the usefulness of a top LCD on such camera though.

Nothing to see here...

This whole thing started on this very forum as a member's 'concept' (Very good it looked too!)

Do keep up...

And also you are not reading carefully.
K-2 is NOT a model name on k-rumors. It means rumor ranking - 2.

Just tells us how seriously we take our rumors - they have to be ranked.

Perhaps we need league tables in a sticky that's updated daily. I nominate someone, anyone, else to care for it.

sure hope not

I would really hope that Pentax would incorporate some retro charm into the design of any new camera, EVIL or otherwise.

It was a concept design, and it was presented as such.

It is not a "fake", as it was never intended to mislead.
