Thing I wonder about is:

What happend to that thing that would be on release for Paris in october?
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/20195454/PentaxParis.pdf


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

Good question. There is a rumor that it was place on hold so that Ricoh can review the product. Most likley got delayed due to earthquake and flood.

It still might be the upcoming K-01. We don't know what the K-01 looks like. With luck we will get an EVF which gives the new camera a dslr look.

What? Isn't the OM-D supposed to be a fake DSLR? I think retro has gone too far if you hide your EVF in a pentaprism-lookalike...

Is the rumor has the OM-D having a fake dslr look with the EVF. I really don't care how the camera looks (either fake slr or fake rangefinder) I just want the EVF in a slightly more compact rugged package.

It's K-1...Not K-01.
K-1 is in conflict with the leaked camera photo snippets.

Yeah the one with the K looks like it has a 0 next to it, not a 1.

In addition to the mirrorless K-01, there are rumors about a new DSLR camera from Pentax that will replace the already discontinued K-r model. The announcement is expected to be at the CP+ show in Japan next week.
[Source: Rumor: Pentax will announce a K-r replacement at the CP+ show next week | Photo Rumors ]

So, if I count correctly, this makes 3 out of 3 Pentax K mount cameras with the K-5 sensor built in

looking through the past camera designs I would really like to see new Pentax reminiscent of something 'not unlike' this :

And Pentax's current naming convention calls for K-letter for consumer/entry-level cameras and K-number for serious amateur-pro level cameras. So the rumored name is serious-pro but the rumored price is consumer/entry. What gives?

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?
