When and where on 02/02/2012?

It looks like the announcement is scheduled on 02/02/12. Does anybody has a clue what exactly time zone it's going to be: Japanese, European, etc? In US we may learn what K-01 is on Feb. the 1st or even late night tomorrow.

Since the K-01 is being released on Groundhog Day, does that mean it will be released over and over again until they get it right? And why is it being released in London instead of Punxsutawney?

Pentax Russia in twitter says that the name of new camera will be the name of tank, airplane, tram, TV channel and the world-wide kickboxing promotion (K-1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)...

It's K-1...Not K-01.

Appeared on the data, this year the company plans to release two Pentax cameras of various types with interchangeable lenses. After combining with Ricoh, Pentax strategy involves filling in all segments of the photographic market, including niche mirrorless cameras with interchangeable lenses and full-frame DSLR-camera. Full Frame camera appears approximately at the end of 2012, and the announcement of the system compact Pentax K-01 with APS-C sensor is scheduled for early February to the exhibition + Wed. We also know that with mirrorless novelty will be compatible full range of FA-mount optics except for a few models.

PhotoKina is a fine place to show the Full Frame.

Well this means EVF goes Full Frame Mirrorless. Photokina is the best way to introduce the Flagship. Probably by June-July we will see hint of the Product just like K-5.

This is clearly a DSLR, so a different camera. Did it get cancelled or has got on hold for other reasons?

I was wondering the same thing. Lets keep repeating the release over and over until it is right.
