I Bet It's A Pentax!

Should make you guys happy.......seems a little slow, but some firmware updates might correct that? I'm not much of a FF fan, but this will let me shoot Squirrels in the next county......

It looks similar to K-01 indeed. No mirror, somewhat boxy... It could be a prototype of K-02. But this time the famous designer probably went too far for my taste, I believe the ergonomics of this camera are pretty bad.

I disagree., ergonomics are quite fine. All you need is a hefty tripod and a few assistants to help with carrying it and setting it up.

It almost sounds like a mechanical insect eye. Lots of little eyes, one camera.

This sensor will be difficult for a sensor stabilitation ...
So lets think of progam based stabilisation ..:
If you konw the movement of the camera you can decreas the blur by a program.
And I don´t want to know the price for a lens for this one ...
