I want to believe...

The start of a trickle of product images out of China or Peru or somewhere about K-3 is however overdue, if it is coming in October.

EDIT: in looking at the mirror box of the posted image, and comparing it to the K-5, you can see that the lug for the two gold power zoom contact plugs on the posted image is noticeably further forward, almost right up to the mount edge, than it is on the K-5, where it sits somewhat more recessed. (Pic below related).

In the original pic, you probably wouldn't be able to mount a lens and turn it to lock.

Moderators.... This thread has been duplicated in the FF Rumor section of the forum. Probably best that this be moved there, and one of the two closed. We might as well keep the forthcoming flaming and back biting in one section of the forum for sanity's sake.

Shadow directions of body versus lugs = faked image.
Too bad

It is, these rumors that keep the hope alive.

Let's speculate the price, shall we?

Even if it is just announce that they are developing it, and show a prototype like this, will keep us happy.

New member, joined today. First post, a teaser? A test? A fake?
I hope to be proved wrong, but I'm suspicious.

The news is from a chinese forum, re-post by Photorumor:
Rumors: full frame Pentax DSLR, K-3 specs and a new DA 18-70mm f/2.8 lens | Photo Rumors

Not originate from this new member.

One guy on photorumor point out that, the horizontal line of the mirror box is not parallel to the flash, hence is is PSed.
If you look at these two lines, you will realize the perspective is wrong!

Too bad!

the thread cited as the source of the pics pretty much agrees that it is photoshopped.

It's a fake. The MOUNT is facing to the left and out of alignment with the body plus the colour of the body immediately surrounding the mount is slightly different. The mount is also wider on the right hand side suggesting it's been scaled to fit the body.

Hi

I attempted to enhance the mirror box part of the image a bit. Put side by side to rawr's image for a better comparison. Make up your own opinion. (Thanks rawr)

Greetings

To me the mirror/sensor assembly appears to be quite a bit out of plane to the rest of the body. As previously stated, which suggests it got planted there from a different cam. And to give it a bit of legitimacy the lens release button got altered to fulfill this purpose.

We'll see

Greetings
