first official photo of k-5 ?
as optyczne.pl claims, it's first leaked image
can You spot any difference between this k-5 and k-7 ? I cannot see anything
Nope, it's the same - even if this isn't a legit image, the K-5 I'm sure will be of similar proportions and design to the K-7.

that picture is not a k7...k7 the mode selector has 3 rows of raised bumps while the camera in that picture's mode selector has 4. Not definitive (if you photoshop k5 onto something you could photoshop a different mode selector).

k7 front shot:



alleged k-5 front shot:

Oh wow, good catch! I bet this really is a K-5. A row of bumps would be a strange thing to photoshop in (especially if it is the only thing).

the AF selector knob is different too, on the "k-5" its beveld and on the k-7 it is not.

Indeed a good catch.
Notice that the focus selector switch looks slightly different too...

edit: jmbradd beat me to it!

The lens on the K-5 looks fake - look at the reflections on the "glass"

looks very fake but then again it looks almost exactly like this...

funny how something fake makes it seem more legit

You still have hope for FF?
I think FF almost doesn't make sense.
I mean look at the SNR levels in the K-r RAW files....
They seem almost as good as current FF files.

I would not call that SAFOX iX+ but rather SAFOX X+.

And price is a bit too high for that spec imo.
The number does not refer to the AF points. remember that there is a version of the Safox VIII with only 5 points in the Ist DL/K2000

One of my sources is pretty adamant that the K-5 is identical body to the K-7.

This source disputes the 50 ISO and a few of the things i've posted.

But has confirmed 19 focus points/
