I don't believe I've seen weight mentioned yet.

But how good is it to hold? The grip design is certainly a major deviation from all other Pentax DSLRs.
Too me it looks neither comfortable nor secure, only "stylish" which is how it is intended, I suppose.

Where is the official announcement?
On Thursday, August 28th. For reasons unknown to me, it has been postponed from Tuesday the 26th, hence the confusion and the 'leaks'.

It will be released on Friday, September 19th.

"All of these indicators CAN be turned off."
I laughed out loud at that. Has someone at Ricoh been reading PF comments?

On second thought, probably not, because he did not explain the "gap".

Nice Mistral. Thanks for the info. Now...will this be the big Photokina spotlight product? My guess is it will be.

I'm guessing about the same as a K-01, around 500g. On the one hand, it has the mirror and pentaprism and a little more body plastic up top, but on the other, the battery is lighter and the body has been trimmed back a bit.

(K-01: 480g w/o battery, 560g w/ battery & SD card)

Well, that's pretty cool - they migrated the AA-simulation code down from the K-3.

Is this an upgrade from the K-50?

On the other hand, this is exactly the same as the K-50, right?

You can bet that was filmed with the K-3. So much shake and warp in the video footage only the brilliant "Movie SR" could produce that. Are the engineers at Pentax blind or just stupid/lazy?
WINNER!! First negative comment unrelated to the subject at hand!!

I wonder why they keep sticking the K-30 AF module when the SAFOX X from the K-5 II/s is already available (and surely NOT superior to the new SAFOX XI)

It looks like I will be giving my K-01 away to a good home. Moon silver K-S1 here I come.

With what is going into this camera I imagine that if a camera is announced at Photokina it's going to be a biggie. Depending on the price point of this I may be interested in one.

I'm feeling this way too if the price is right, then I can sell the K-01 at a bargain price to someone who wants one.
