That looks like K-s to me. Maybe a new body, more styled like K-01.

Did I mention that the viral marketing campaigns by Pentax start to become annoying?
Any marketing is less annoying then Nikon's marketing. Here in Holland, Nikon commercials are on before tv programs, after, in between breaks. It's a real PITA. Now, I would't buy Nikon even if the D800 was only 300 euros and could mount ALL my Pentax glass whilst keeping autofocus.

All this talk of the switch from Hoya to the serious Ricoh and this is what we get ... a gazillion different colors?

Didn't the K-r offer just as many color combos?

Docrwm,

that picture of the k-x makes my eyes and brain hurt...

Seriously though, it will be interesting to see if this new one has a new sensor or does it share the K-5 sensor.

But what I would really like to see is the return of the K200D line of cameras. Forget the colours and return the weather sealing please!!

The K-r offered 120 combinations. 12 choices of body color and 10 choices of grip color. It wasn't this granular.

Perfect! That quote is on my coffee mug! I was once inspired to purchase a '94 Chevy Impalla SS because the 2-page ad in Motor Trend informed me that there were just three color choices: black, black or black.

Oh, and P.S. the photo wasn't intentionally blurred, it was just shot with a Kr under tungsten lighting. LOL!!! (sorry, couldn't help myself)
kinda OT...but i know exactly which ad that was. do you remember the article of the impala SS leaping over a hill? we have a '96......still with us and still mine

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10101038982218113.2989167.1236072&type=3 my wife took these pics with her K20D

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10100599645048323 and i took a pic of my '96 with my K-5

So much for collectors who would like one of every available Pentax camera (either that or they figure one such collector and jackpot)...

Color is serious business.
