Well it looks like that new bump on the front is where the stereo headphone jack is located as there clearly is a door cover with a headphone icon on it.

The button layouts are different. The AF button is in a better place. They moved the Movie mode from the main dial to a dedicated switch. And the LV button is moved. The buttons on a whole look much better located on the K-3 than the K-5/II/IIs.

Is there any definitive idea on which sensor the K-3 will have?
Hey, Rico, welcome back!! I've missed your posts and thought you'd died or something. Well, whatever, nice to have you back.

Thanks a lot Gray. I hope things are well down in Cape Town. I am doing fine. You know how it is. I had to reinstall system software and miss placed passwords yada yada months went by. With all this excitement with the pending release of the K-3 I couldn't resist posting some comments so I finally set up a new password to log in.

APS-C Sony Exmor HD 24 Mpixels but different from the one in Alpha 65 / Alpha 77 / NEX-7.

I think that for me it will become the silver one if it is not more expensive.

Dislike the silver body alone but, with the battery grip, it's not too bad.

Thanks Mistral75. Sounds like the next generation of the 24.

On the Silver body. I think it is great to have such a choice.

so a new aps-c 24mp sensor sony itself has not used yet? I doubt it. Probably sony's relatively new 20mp sensor that's in the a58

D1N0, what's wrong with Pentax using a new sensor in their flagship?

Bummer... a HD sensor, definitely can't do anything other than 1080p movies

I'm not sure Sony 20MP sensor has the performance needed for a high end DSLR.
Cameras using it has 5 FPS or lower frame rate and 1080i video mode.
Frame rate on Sony A58 is 5 FPS, and went down from 10 FPS in A57.

Sony probably is going to replace quite a few cameras in the near future so it might not mean all that much if Pentax K-3 is out a few weeks earlier.
Sony A77, A65 and Nex7 are all over 2 years old, using the old 24MP sensor, and will probably be replaced soon, but Sony might have other new APS-C sensors coming with more than 24MP that they prefer to use in these cameras.
