June 25, they say. I think Pentax will have to announce this product official before June.



Who knows, the next Pentax accessory might be the "Pentax Color-It-Yourself (CIY) Camera Spray", an electronics-friendly spray that comes with a body and grip stencil to help you color your Pentax body in any way you want! Exclusive to Pentax K-30/K40 only. Spray might contain chemicals that are harmful to eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Do not expose to fire. If accidentally swallowed consult your doctor immediately.
Hey thats patentable idea!!! Rush to Ricoh.

Few points:
1. They better keep the same battery form factor as it is for K-5/K-01
2. If this indeed will be the mid/entry level camera then the one above it will have to be far stronger than K-5. May be it is a hint of imminent FF camera...
3. I certainly get to keep my K-5en :-).

... and suddenly ...

That awkward moment when you see a Pentax product in Amazon catalogs with Pentax reps still mum about it...

We now know the name of the K-5 replacement.

This is an awesome bit of news. I am so glad that Ricoh hasn't screwed Pentax up so far. Also, since this camera is the K30, I think it's safe to say that the K-5 replacement will be called K3.

What I really wonder is how all this camera information is coming to us. No official announcement yet. Not much viral marketing the way it has been done during the last years. Just a blunt ad in a retailer's magazine with almost full details and a picture. If it was just this one French retailer, I could believe they f*d up but it's listed at Amazon at the same time. So I think one plausible explanation is that some Pentax employee messed up with the curfew date in some retailer info material. And this somebody will probably get his/her ass kicked.

Amazon link is dud when we try to proceed further. However SRS microsystems shows heavy discount on K-5 packages, that could be indicative of new entry in Pentax line-up soon.

In the french advt. "4" could be mentioned for image or scene modes and not for FPS as many are believing here. So FPS could be 6 as some are stating.

Oh wait, Sony's a37 just came out. So it's just Canon now and what the 1200D/700D might be.

A37 just came out? That's $600 camera with the kit, $400 cheaper thann K30. A65 is is in the same price range as K30. Even A57 is cheaper

A37... and yeah, since it's probably targeted vs. the 1100/1200D and D3200. Pentax's K-30 is... prolly against the A57, 600D and D5100.

Nope. The French catalogue says "MODE RAFALE 4 images/seconde" which means "BURST MODE 4fps".

But the 4 could be a mistake made by Boulanger nonetheless.

Toyota have already demonstrated LCD bodywork for a car. There's no reason in principle why you couldn't do it for a camera - other than price.

Yes, well observed. Also, on one the right hand grip is leather, in the boulanger catalogue it seams to be smooth plastic.

Anyway, i think they look stunning!! Like the tilted Pentax logo too
I think it looks like it's been punched in the face and that material with the pinpricks in it looks like it's from a 1985 Ford Sierra.

Seems Amazon UK have now removed it from the site. Sounds like news has got to Pentax/RIcoh and they are not happy!
