This was exactly how the K-30 was "announced" if I remember correctly. Are french shops the Pentax announcement centrals?

It's K30II. The same trick as with K-5II. Hmmmmm....Ricoh is real progress for Pentax.

To offer such camera is real humiliation and mockery at the customer.

Only FF could absolve Pentax Ricoh company.

The body looks reminiscent of a K20D. I like it.
Do you have photo of body?

Nope, K50 it's quite genuine.
I think you're wrong, the specs are identical to the K-30 (like they have been copied from the reviews page) right down thhe weight w/ battery (650g) which of course the only change being a steel & magnesium shell instead of the polycarbonate would increase the weight (and the price drastically). I'm not saying their isn't a camera coming and its not called the K-50, but it isn't these specs.
As well as those discrepancies, it would be a suicide business move for multiple reasons to release this camera with these specs.

K5II replacement will be with 21 point AF, different processor but same body and 16 Mpx sensor and claim to have ISO 1mil..... but called K5III.... to attract new Pentax customers..... at 1200 US

but entry level D3200 has 24Mpx APSc for US546.00 but limited specs....

Where on Earth did you find all that info?
However, not that I dislike it. I like the idea of retaining the same K7/K5/K5II body though — that is the digital Pentax classic, instantly recognisable, and should be used over and over again.

It is a guess... but highly likely to be the same sensor AGAIN....

129.0 mm × 96.5 mm × 70.0 mm

K-30 - 130 mm x 97 mm x 71 mm

K-30 is more sexy with outstanding design. K-50 is.....no design.
