I see. That's from 5 months ago?

Edit - Was that actually his last ever post on DPR?
Yep, at least. But this small detail can't stop people from speculating and looking at "hidden" clues

He's now posting as "Zvonimir", apparently.

Okay, I'm curious to hear where he got it from originally.

I believed it because it scales to a full frame DSLR rather than just somebody using an existing APSC camera image as the backdrop if they were doing a quick fake. Thought and effort has actually gone into it.

Seems that original Facebook poster has updated his cover photo to this:

Edit: could be a K-5 or K-7 - this is what I mean about using an existing model image to do a quick fake.

That's old, too; I found it when searching for the first image's source.
There's nothing to be seen right now; Ricoh is celebrating X-mass or whatever distorted, ultra-commercial version of the Christmas they imported. They're all drunk, they won't start teasers now.
So, let's enjoy the wine and patiently wait for CP+. Merry Christmas! (to anyone who is celebrating it)

I'm a bit relieved actually. Another typical DSLR like this appeared to be isn't what they were talking about being unique to compete against Canikon.

I'm personally looking forward to the FF K-mount mirrorless 'bellows' design, which I still expect to see announced very soon before CP+!

That image is likely from a k-3 (or anticipated new model) as the diopter-change wheel does not look like it is from k-5 or k-7.

If the series of hints are credible, it looks quite well done. There were statements in November December that would maybe make someone hesitate to get a Sony or the new Nikon, just to wait to see what is coming. Now this. Pre K3 there were a bunch of rumours, well spaced to maintain a buzz. Watch for something every Saturday over the next while.

I have no insider knowledge. Pentax is due for a release of something, but we shall see.

I think that second image predates the first K-3 leaks... it appeared in March 2013, perhaps earlier. At that time, people were still dreaming of a "full frame" K-3...
Indeed, Ricoh is due to a new Pentax release, perhaps as early as CP+; but those images have nothing to do with it.

Beside the jokes, I think something is coming. Buhuhu!

So, I will wait patiently. Without popcorn, (could makes me more fat that I'm allready), without alcohol, (can you believe me?). Finally, that wonderful camera will come, sometime, and I will buy it, sometime.

I am awake or still dreaming?

I agree with K David. It's a triangle, but not a triangular sensor. It's a new camera with 3 sensors, FF, APS-C AND Q molded into 1 body. It has both OVF and a pop up EVF. Who am I kidding, I must being going nuts!
