Pentax K2D! picture leaked

And guess what? It's a full frame!

Not photoshopped, just converted from RAW

(it's as good as all the other speculation going around...)

...film winder thingy... that's the official English phrase .

Plus it looks a lot like this ...



Full-frame photography is very affordable with one of these.

I can see Pentax is going retro with this new body. Nice, nice. I like the idea, as well as paying homage to the original Asahi Pentax name and logo.

Question: did they ditch the pop-up flash? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

And even more like this

Seriously though. That film winder is for the sd-cards, you can roll up 10 of them in there now!

And that "rear door" is just a big-ass detachable lcd screen! + to swap out the 6MP, 10 MP or 100000MP sensor of your pixelpeeping-needs

I've yet to figure out where the cupholder is on this thing though...

And it's 25 megapixels!!! As always, Pentax retains that "film" look in their photos!

Well thats a downer There was a whole thread dedicated to including a Tic Tac dispenser directly below the viewfinder so you you would get rewarded whenever you got a correct exposure. Pentax!! Are you listening!! Guess we'll have to leave our mouths closed when snapping pics till the next upgrade cycle.:ugh:

It would be totally awesome if Pentax actually did bring out a dslr body based on the older slr body styles. As much as I love my K10D, the older bodies seem to have a bit more character to them
