Pentax K10D LE on the cover of Croatian photo magazine

Yesterday, while I was looking for a magazine to read on a train from Zagreb to Ljubljana, I noticed a "Photo mag" with a K10D LE on the cover. Needles to say I bought the magazine, but I found no word of K10D LE inside the magazine (other cameras from cover had their articles)
One explanation that came to my mind is that the magazine already has the announcement material and that it got on the front page by accident.
What do you think?

Anyway here are photos of front page:

To me, that looks like the Grand Prix Edition, a limited run of 1000 (?) K10D cameras that sported gold trim to match the DA* lenses.

I think so, too, LE = Limited Edition.

I thought of that too and wandered why publishing old news about a camera that is only cosmetically altered and what would LE mean if this is GP edition.
But now that you mentioned it came to my mind: LE = Limited Edition. That is probably the closest shot.
Oh well... so much for the leak.

Move on there's nothing to see here.

Well, as a person who actually lives in Zagreb, I must confess that Fotomag is not a reliable magazine.
By that, I mean that they, for some unknown reasons, stopped appearing regulary on newsstands.
Nuber before this one (which caught me by surprise - I thought Fotomag went to the place where dead magazines go) had articles and dates from several months before the day it hit the stands.
Therefore, I believe that this is Limited Edition Pentax K10D, because they probably made cover few months back, and in editing it forgot to take out the Pentax.

P.S. By the way, in this magazine there are several ads by Pentax, and in the impresuum thez say they are using Pentax medium format cameras. Film cameras of course.
