From that screenshot, it is clear that we will see a new representative at Pentax.

I just did a rough overlay of a K-3 with the Pentax logo on the front of the prism housing the same dimension as in the teaser image. So it appears this new FF model is larger than the K-3.

And if I use the dot/line as a guide to match the sensor/mirror on the D750, the Pentax FF prism logo is slightly higher so the camera is probably between D750 and D800 in size.

I thought this was the old(er) 645Z teaser.

It probably is but that isn't going to stop this community from wasting hours of time speculating otherwise.

Similar, but not the same. Here's a screen cap from the PF 645 announcement:
Countdown to the Pentax 645z - Pentax Announcements | PentaxForums.com

The 645 has different typography on the text. This new one looks like a K-3 or other K-mount DSLR.

I'm coming around on the hoax idea for this. The OP never answered on FB when asked where the image came from.

From what I have seen in the past several years, Ricoh only does teasers/leaks shortly before an announcement (if at all).

Somebody did recently post it on the norwegian pentax facebook page, so clearly, it's going around.

Just stop with all these conspiracy theories, I just wish they would make one and get it into production... no in fact make at least two (both are for me mind).

Yep, the Pentax logo on the 645 is completely different. This is definitely a more typical DSLR instead.

This new teaser/reveal also having a similar look and feel to their previous successful Z one but with a new different 'join the dots' idea actually tells me it is from the same marketing/PR people and is genuine.

CP+ is 12-15 Feb. Like other makers with big announcements at previous shows they will be wanting to launch it BEFORE the show opens to hog all the pre-show publicity and press and build anticipation to come and see it, so I'd say in about four weeks or so by end of January.

So after all these years, just a month or less now.

Sorry, but... what new teaser? And I hope you don't think it's Ricoh Imaging's doing...

Look what I found: Just connect the dots: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
Uluru, do you know anything about that?

I see. That's from 5 months ago?

Edit - Was that actually his last ever post on DPR?

In this bright image it seems to be a feature on each side of the logo surface. I dont recognize this from any Pentax camera.
