Three lens kits based on DA 40mm f/2.8 XS and existing lens.

I presume the three kits will be:

- K-01 + 40mm XS
- K-01 + 18-55mm
- K-01 + 18-55mm + 40mm XS (think Pentax Q + 8.5mm + 5-15mm).
My wild guess would be

K01 +40mm
K01 + 18-55mm
K01 + 18-55 & 50-200mm.

Funny. There is an awful lot of speculation, with absolutely no certain facts. Have to wait a little bit before you can shoot down the idea or glorify it.

I think one thing is certain. Pentax needs to expand their entry level base and they won't do this by releasing XSI clones with a few more features/slightly better builds. They need to release something "different" to attract new users -- hopefully people who wouldn't necessarily want and SLR otherwise.

Hopefully if Pentax increases their entry level base, it will increase the chances of having improvements on the upper end, maybe even full frame down the road.

I personally don't think for a moment that an SV (and then Spotmatic) wasn't designed for visual effect as well as utility. Even today it is beautiful - a piece of industrial art.

And it had attachments - meters, grips, cases, flashes - to suit the needs of the user and the subject.

If the emerging speculations are true (is Pentax dripping info out to elicit viral excitement?) the depth of Pentax's reach into legacy design thinking far surpasses a rectangular camera with dials that suggests a 40-year-old SLR.

I'm not too good at Japanese translating.. my grammar is beginner level at best... but it seems to read like that...

「DA 40mm F2.8XSの他、既存レンズで3種のレンズキットが用意される。」 -> DA 40mm F2.8XS and other lenses, potentially with 3 different lens kits using variations of existing lenses.
Thank you very much.

I know. This is just based on the people that have seen it. Many of us will judge it bad, ugly, good looking,..etc.
It will have almost the same result of views when Q was introduced.

Why did you use a FF mirrorbox?

My contact confirms that it is indeed a brick shape. Flat edges around all the sides.
