It's a camera, and it's a Pentax

He says 16mp and "viewfinderless" in the linked forum.

.......viewfinderless

This might be something below the K-r.

I'm going over to the Canon forums and telling them how mean you are.

Hmm, I have a feeling that Adam mistakenly thought that tomorrow is 2nd February . Oh no, we should just kept it to ourselves and we could have the specs tomorrow.

What does "viewfinderless' mean? No eye-level finder? Even a live-view screen is viewfinder.

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. I have to try really hard now not to create a thread in Adam's new subforum entitled "When to expect a Pentax K-02 with EVF ?"

Not to everybody, the English language isn't clear here. Not every means to find your view is considered a viewfinder, e.g., a red pointing laser isn't. A majority of readers in English don't seem to consider the rear LCD a VF. Also, in some other languages like German, the rear LCD never is considered a VF ("Sucher").

I am sure Adam just confirmed the K-01 has no EVF, at least no built-in one.

Well the big question is, will there been an external viewfinder option, no?

One positive benefit is it might be cheap. It also depends on how an add-on EVF would integrate with the camera. If it sits flush an basically looks like a standard VF bump then I don't see an add-on EVF as a negative. However if it connects to the hotshoe and seems awkward... then well.

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!
