A Pentax K-5... but hey, wait, they changed the lens release button?? K-3?

EDIT: The mirror box is FF sized as well!! Pentax FF in K-5-sized body coming? Now that would be cool

EDIT 2: No, looks like bad photoshopping to me.

well its not a K5

But with some features of the K5 Body ( "sharp edges" , buttons near the shutter,)

And.... the lens release button is different....


and somehow i think the mirror is bigger, could recreate the same angle with my k5
not to mention the bottom lokks a bit different (maybe because of poor photo quality)

even the two top dimples are the same as the K-01. Could certainly be a 'shop. The transition from the mount to the pentaprism looks pretty believable under the "P," but on the "X" side something looks screwy.

The angle of the text (PENTAX) and the angle of the lens mount/mirror don't seem to be parallel.. anyone else think its photoshop? or just really odd perspective and low quality photo?

If anything, this is the K-3 to be, cancelled and replaced by K-5 II.

Boy, someone really likes to tease. Cutting of the part of the picture where the "K" on the camera is, where it might say K5, or K3, or what have you, even if it is a gag...

Of course it's fake. Photoshop or some other raster software was used to mashup images of a K-5 and K-01 at least...
