Long time lurker, Not many posts to my name, but I have to say, there are a lot of people saying how ugly the camera is, I wish people could see past the pancake lens, I will agree, those flat lenses have always given me the asthetic heeby-geebies, but I think the body is damn nice.

I did a quick photoshop (actually we have linux machines at work so I was forced to use GIMP) mock up of what the cam would look like with a A 50mm f1.4, I had to flip the image of the lens I used to match the perspective and angle, so the writing is reversed, but seriously, the camera looks awesome with a normal lens on it .... I think :P
Nice work. I don't understand the hate over this camera. Its way better looking and more functional than the Nikon 1 - what a nightmare that is.

That's a pretty poor rendering. Probably just fantasy.

That looks seriously awesome!
I agree, it does look nice...now all it needs is an ovf with a proper focusing screen, and you would have a real winner...
Ummm, like a DSLR perhaps?

The second leaked image. A silver K-5 with normal grip and 40mm XS. Can't think of anything else.

The name of this thread should be changed to "How I Photoshopped my Lens and learned to Love the Pentax K-01"

The new Fujis all look fine, but honestly I think they all look like counterfeit Leicas.

And the new Olympus is supposed to a counterfeit OM-1 ;-) (Including a fake pentaprism!)

I think it's much braver to attempt something new, while keeping references to the old (e.g. reintroducing the old fonts).

Agreed, but I still find that snorkel a bit strange. I'd like to know what the function is because if it's aesthetics it's missing the boat.

I think Mark Newson got the "snorkel" idea from the old Pentax M42 bodies with a clip-on meter.
