Yes, it could still be a 12MP APS-C Sony sensor... or a 14,6MP Sony FF sensor right?


(Sorry, could not resist )
No..It is actually exactly the same sensor as the K10D..The only change is they are calling it a K20D/2=10

Very impressive name change...No? You know it's all about marketing.

I heard they're stacked on top of each other for twice the dynamic range.

Umm, Samsungs image stabilization is called OPS not OIS, the switch on the samsung doesn't have the hand its supposed to say OPS and no live view button... I'm going to say Photoshoped and all these images keep coming from some strange sources.

Good find, vibi. And the site has already taken down the page!

The photos are very consistent with the earlier Norway website pics. So it looks legit to me.

Everything seems to be identical to GX-10 though, a bit of an anticlimax. No flip out screen as speculated; and yeah, no movie mode buttons.

Chris, I thought you implied that there will be new functions with the new grip, not apparent from the GX-20 grip though.

If it's photoshopped, it's a master's work. The only thing a bit shady are the row button labelels, but that's nitpicking.

Interesting. The round thing on the USB port side of the camera is looking more and more like the cover for a PC-sync port.

Yes, that is almost certain - and the only difference I can see from the GX-10.

I always thought that Samsung used Schneider Kreuznach lenses ( I know they were rebadged Pentax's but if Samsung is promoting their own brand lens line up, then that is quite a shift in marketing)- has that changed and Pentax is now allowing Samsung to rebadge all of Pentax lenses as Samsung?

There are rumors from insiders that someday (maybe next year, not this year) Samsung will offer several original Schneider-Kreuznach lenses, not rebadged Pentax. It could be very interesting.
But I'm not sure.

As for Samsung GX20 photos - Samsungs image stabilization is really called OPS, not OIS.
It's not Panasonic.)

True, but the 16-45 never got that brand, dunno why.
