Exactly, Adam has already leaked what matters from what hasn't been said yet: it won't have an EVF

Mirrorless this large w/o EVF is crazy.
Unless it is designed as a WLF. Some merit there, especially as it seems to be a more 'natural' way to use an LCD on a camera with SLR size lenses.

Or it could just mean the EVF is a clip-on, therefore optional.

Even without a viewfinder, I think this camera will have a lot of merit. Think of it- it's a Q with a proper sensor and proper lenses; no other mirrorless natively supports as many lenses because the K lineup is simply huge. I wonder how the price will match up to that of the Q (or do I? ).

My biggest complaint with the Q is that it was no better than a high-end point-and-shoot in terms of easy of shooting or image quality. I'm sure the K-01 will change that.

Merit? Q? A camera that's a bit heavier than K-x?

I would love to see an EVF- that would give the camera the potential to appeal more to current SLR users and pros alike. In any case, I'm looking forward to Thrusday!
Maybe Thursday even.

And of course we know that it will 'support' some sort of k-mount lenses too, which of course we'd already guessed. And of course it's TBD as to how 'natively' they will be supported.

It's more K-5 minus optical viewfinder and mirror...

If it has proper video control, I do see some nice benefits even without a EVF or OVF. However assuming they did leave both out, they should price it properly.
