Someone at clubsnap already posted a picture, looks legit to me.



Too bad there is no waist level viewfinder we spoke of.

Also this:
ugly as sin. certainly does no justice to the original 'K' moniker that they have decided to use. I wouldn't buy one, no way. looks like an 80's reject design. utterly terrible. I do hope its successful though, as that may allow me to upgrade my k-7's to k-5's much cheaper.

Seriously, if this has the K-5 sensor, then my DA Limiteds have a new travelling buddy!

My little opinion on Viewfinder/No Viewfinders. I came from P&S and I adore having the viewfinders now. I dislike using P&S holding it in an odd position, etc. I can imagine using this with a larger lens will be awkward, unless you imagine the whole LCD screen is the viewfinder (not a bad idea..). How it deals with sun-glare is going to be critical.

Now, as far as shape and form based on these pictures.. good grief I like it. I can't slip my k-x into my jacket pocket, but it looks like I can slip this in with the 40mm. If they bring out 28mm and 70mm pancakes that have as much reduction as the 40mm, then it's going to be unique.

What's that lever where the shutter button is, btw?

Well...I might buy one...as my video backup, but I hope the mirrorless crowd will (now) STFU and support my FF DSLR camera desire. I'm getting tired of asking.
The difference here is that I *might* buy this, and I *WILL* buy a FF DSLR.

What's the question then? The FF will be released in fall.

Think about it, for the price of the Fuji Pro 1X body, you can probably pick up this camera, the new 40, and two DA Limiteds...

Looks like a mixup of the Pentax Q and the Pentax I-10.

Maybe I can like it

Can't decide if I like design or not. I'll tell you later.

DA 40mm XS!

XS - extra small. My guess anyways.

Still curious about that level where the shutter button is. Looks like the zoom lever on a P&S.

The leaked photos does make the camera out to be cute.

From the leak photo I don't like that it has only one control wheel. Also don't like the rumor about no EVF. We still don't know how good the AF speed is going to be. Still it looks like a very good camera for the intro-level mirrorless camera. The photo with all the camera with all the lenses really hammer home our complete the native (without adaptors) mirrorless lens line-up is compared to the other mirrorless cameras.

If the camera is weather-sealed the yellow/black one would make a good camera for my cave photographers.

But lose a bilt-in EVF and in the Fuji case a hydride viewfinder.

I hope it accepts AA batteries and has a lithium option as well.. that was a HUGE reason why I went with the k-x...

Well, maybe not really the thing for a lotta other people, but options are always nice
