Ehh... from a design standpoint putting all the ports at the grip side is a big no-no...
i wonder what it is then? maybe its just the side of the camera, simply a grip

Just got a warning from my Sophos of a blocked resource from a site that contains malware on page 103. ... oh great, now my company's ops group got an alert about that too. But seems to be Sophos being overly protective:

Blocked web request to "www.penta-club.ru/forum/uploads/post-3696-0-69720200-1328124991_thumb.jpg" (linked from "www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-news-rumors/172213-new-k-01-mirrorless-camera-coming-103.html")
'Mal/HTMLGen-A' has been found at this website, reference ID 33128021.

So while that thumb-nail isn't infected, it seems www.penta-club.ru is on Sopho's naughty list.

the early leaked photographs of the camera suggested something different to what was produced, simply because they were taken cleverly.

i don't see a reason why they wouldn't want to keep us guessing right to the end.

If I was a marketing guy I wouldn't want EVERYTHING leaked before the big day. Why bother with a Press Conference / Release Party?

Please god... let it be. EVF, K5 sensor, tons of K glass at its disposal, small without being a toy, well built and KR price point = WIN for Pentax!

a NEX5 like focus assist function is necessary in order to appeal to the 90% "non EVF using" new customer base out there.

Only the K-01 will give you AF + auto exposure with all lenses...

I hope it's an EVF!!! I am soooooo looking forward to the EVF and mirror less crowd getting what they want and leaving what is left over to us OVF and FF and SLR folks in the future!

An EVF would certainly fit the "nothing you've ever seen before" meme. So far, we've basically seen everything before.

The camera at Pentax K-01 mirrorless camera teased in press photos - SlashGear would be the first Pentax in a long time that looked somewhat like a Pentax, even if its name really should be the Ax.

good point- besides the red button, nothing is particularly new. an EVF isn't exactly ground breaking though
