I'd only want a "silver" model, if it's actually metal. Silvery plastic makes it look like a cheap, old Rebel. What's the K-3 anyway? I haven't heard about this yet. Is this just a rumor?

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.
It's in the a58 and the new a3000. Neither has really been tested yet. The A58 does 8fps not 5. Framerate has more to do with the processing engine and camera mechanics anyway.

Sony A58 only do 5 FPS @ full resolution (20MP), or 8 FPS @ 5MP.
Sony A57 do 10 FPS @ 16MP or 12 FPS @ 8.4MP.

So what? Does it have a prime III? I guess not? more mp might mean less speed, but much more is due to the image processor. It is much more likely this 20mp chip is in the k-3 than a imaginary 24mp chip. Unless Pentax has also turned to Toshiba.

I believe it is metal, but painted metal.

Come on, people, such basic specs already leaked out. Don't dream of old/low-end sensors... don't dream of Rebel-like plastic, either; are you Pentax users? Don't you know Pentax has the best build quality in its class (and often above)?

I won't be disappointed at all by what they'll officially announce; I won't be surprised either
And please, no name calling.
