Looks like the k-7 but without the golden SR-logo.

I am also wondering if it might have PDAF. There is space.
very interesting thought... that would sure solve the focus speed issues

Sure, but why make it that detailed if it's not 100% accurate?

I like the looks of it.

Small, compact, uses Pentax lenses, video, uses the same sensor as the K-5 ;-) and is suppose to be built very well.

What more could you ask for in a small form factor camera ?

This looks fine to me, though handling it will be all - including the feel of the materials used to make it - as will the electronics inside it. At any rate, I am glad that Mr Newson has stuck firmly to designing a camera, a solid piece of work which says "photography", in contrast to many of the squidgy plastic me-too gadget cameras around. If this enables Pentax to ask more for this at retail than they would otherwise be able to, then good for them though I suppose antics of the Q kind - asking 2-3 times the going rate for the class of camera - might not be a very good idea. Commissioning a distinguished designer to work on a new camera is a good idea, I think. I hope this initiative really does work well for Pentax, to the extent that they might ask Mr Newson to look at the design of the other cameras in their range.

The leaked photo of the battery door with the designers signature isnt a WR door when you look at Pentax's releases on the K5/7 vs those on the K-x/r.

Does anyone hang out at other camera forums for other brands and formats? Is anyone there expressing any interest in this camera? That's a key test, as cameras like the Fuji X1Pro and Sony NEX-7 were drawing curious eyes from all photographers not just the brand loyal ones.
I agree. But then again, I think the NEX is hideous: the lens is out of proportion to the camera. Its not really small at all.
The Fuji is old school but with good controls (!) and in proportion.
This K-01 body may not be too bad, but I still don't get the lack of size advantage unless its cheap.
