Then, it's just someone wishing for the K20D body style's return - and making up this "rumor".
Much ado about nothing...

If it's legit, I would expect it to be a Pentax camera. Based on the K-7 and 645D marketing campaigns, someone at Pentax's marketing department seems to love using camera silhouettes.

Already proven fake. Though, IMO it's most likely an GX-20 and not a K20D.

I think PhotographyBay was just using a generic photo for the article. They didn't indicate that the image in question was connected to the rumor.

Well, they don't say that is a real product. The image is clearly fake, the rumor (that someone will launch a new DSLR on 8 September) maybe not.

If this is part of a serious publicity campaign, its pathetic. First time around on the K7, maybe cute. 2nd time around - waste of time

Sorry for the double post - it had looked like the first time didn't make it through...

Long time lurker, don't really post much.

I think this is just some DSLR that the author used to make a point about a new rumor being out, I don't see where it says this is the actual outline of the as yet to be reveled DSLR. This is like a Rorschach test for camera geeks, you see what you want to.
