maybe.... but it's not early - the announcement will be in 3-7 days.
That's pre CP+ and probably something else. What I hear is that a "K-01" will be announced Feb. 4. I also hear that it's like a K-5 w/o mirror.

Hey, my K20D with a 40mm pancake fits in my coat pocket, or my photo vest pocket. So we have to define "pocket" when talking about pocketable cameras. Shirt pocket, jeans pocket? It all depends.

I think the GXR K-Mount version will have the same lens setup that will come with the new "K". CP+...

A note on sizes:

Thought it would be interesting to compare the rumored size of the K-01 with some other mirrorlesseses & similar. And yes, I'm cherry-picking to make a point (all in cm):

Canon G1x's bigger-than-4/3, fixed lens solution: 11.7 x 8.1 x 6.5. Actually thicker than the K01, although it does have an articulating screen which may account for some of the thickness.

Fuji X-1 Pro: The CES darling comes in at 14 x 8.2 x 4.3. Thinner than the K01, but also taller and wider.

Sigma DP2s: Foveon sensor fixed lens, love-it-or-hate it compact from Sigma. It's 11.3 x 6.0 x 5.6. Almost as thick as the K01, but shorter and narrower.

GXR A12 -- looking at a Ricoh offering, it's 11.4 x 7.0 x 7.7.

Leica M9-P. Hey, why not? The ultimate not-a-dslr is a surprising 13.9 x 8 x 3.7.

And of course, the Pentax Kr, which according to this thread the K01 is only slightly smaller than: 12.5 x 9.7 x 6.8. Or about 261 cubic centimeters larger than the K01 is supposed to be.

These dimensions include the lens.

A question; do we know what a "Contrast AF, 81 focus points split" performs like?

As in, does this exist prior to the release of the concept-named camera K-01?
I'm curious.. Don't actually now if it'd be interesting as a nr.2-camera or if I should stick with a DSLR in the future.

I know it's still a rumour (from a reliable source), just want to know about the AF-parts

All we know is what the posters on this thread have told us, which is that AF will be slow, slow, slow. And inaccurate. And possibly will release a noxious smell.

From mirrorless rumors.

UF!

Our reader Alvaro sent us the translation of a rumor tweeted by DSLRmagazine (Click here). The Spanish editor writes that “The new Pentax CSC will be a bit smaller than the Kr and it is not sure that it wins -immediately- a beauty contest“..LOL!

In a second tweet he says the “New Pentax CSC will use standard K mount compatible with actual lenses. It will not have a eye level visor.”

Cannot wait to see that ugly beast !

Thanks for the translation Alvaro!
