I don't think it was posted already, but I figured it wouldn't hurt.
The new camera in different colors, also note the DA 21-style hood
Also, notice the black camera in the back has the lens extended to about the 24mm position.

Nice! Now there's even more detail to see. There is definitely a second e-dial, an AE-L/AF button, and a LV button. Very similar to a K-30/50.

Wow, looks great! After all this time agitating for an articulated LCD, I wish it were just up/down like the MX-1, 645Z, X5... Mainly I just want a digital WLF! I heard somewhere that video types like the flip-out variety. Whatever, it's all good. I am very surprised/pleased by this announcement announcement! Can't wait to see more...

we need more developments, their exposure latitude needs to widen, giving us a rear view

This articulated LCD is meant for selfies.

I used an articulated screen on a 60D and was quite happy with it, pleased to see such a thing on a Pentax camera.

Now THAT is a proper trade show presence, Ricoh! Looks very professionally done. Wish I were there...

Hmm, except for the grip that camera doesn't look much larger than the K-S1. And finally, they're equipping it with a really compact and silent kit lens! I bet that lens will boost the sales of the K-S1 too.

It's interesting that the lens is designated DAL and not DA. I wonder if it means that they will offer a standalone DA version as well. It's made confusing by Pentax's inconsistent use of these designations over the years, so it probably doesn't signify anything.

The DA21 type hood is a great move. I hope it comes in the kit. Hopefully, from now on Pentax's kit lens will be asset rather than a liability at the point of sale.

This camera looks really nice for the K50 replacement and it looks like is going to go head to head with the Nikon D5500 wich have a tactil screen so perhaps we can wait the same here.. Really nice entry level Well done Ricoh/Pentax .. now just make us all happy with the FF and we can finally said that we saw it happen in our life time
