It says "Pentax Mount" so that means Pentax has bought Canon. It will be the Pentax EOS K mount (neat trick) that will be cool with all those Canon lenses for us.

Damn what will Rice High do now? Sell his 5D and move to Nikon?

Intersting how a lens sale typo then moved to a thread title can start a rumour....

Itīs obviously a typing error. But hold on, Pentax has a project for a new mount and I believe it can see the light. Just check this:

quote " The present invention provides an interchangeable lens which is selectively mountable to a packing-compatible camera body and a packing-incompatible camera body, wherein the relative position between the interchangeable lens and the camera body to which the interchangeable lens is mounted in the optical axis direction is appropriate in either case where the interchangeable lens is mounted to the packing-compatible camera body or the packing-incompatible camera body. The present invention further provides a camera system including such interchangeable lenses. "
