I, for one, certainly don't believe this is a K-3.
It could be a K-4.....

We should ask someone that works at the Cebu plant in the Philippines about it! :-P
That would be difficult. The Pentaxians there are tight lipped. Even when there was a tour there.

This is an obvious shop...

The angle of the body and the angle of the hole do not match.

LOL!

What happened to the K-4 anyway? Why's everybody expecting a K-3 and no K-4?

Still, the angles above the pentaprism have apparently been made steeper/longer, showing a bigger prism than that of the K-5.
As a result, the PENTAX logo is almost on the same level as the K-? inscription.
A not so bad shop...

but hey, wait, they changed the lens release button??
This release button is the only thing that makes me wonder if it's a New body.

For the mirror size and contact stuff, this can be easily modified in the last moment, so let's control ourselves and keep calm

That's a fake !! No designer would draw such an unbalanced design, just compare the right angled corner with the lens release button and the rounded corner on the opposite side!

Because Pentax has a habit of skipping the even numbers since the K7?
Also I don`t know why they abandoned the K10-K20 type designation, imho it`s more logical to run up the numbers instead of counting backwards.

Trustable! It's good to meet a new Pentax user Loving this thread, shadows at disagreeing angles!... do I also see a flag that should not be flapping. I think this is the new K-51

This is obviously a false rumor. The new camera would say "RICOH", wouldn't it?
