Does that mock-up remind anyone else of a 67?

Edit: also looks like it could be a simple 3d printed model- the Pentax badge is a sticker, if you look closely (why am I looking so closely at a mock-up?).

Well looks like I am eating my hat for lunch, The lenses have selectable focus lock buttons if I interpreted it right, cool.

It seems to be a very cheap 3D printed plastic model. I guess they have some more work to do.

I was thinking I don't see a seam for where the pop-up flash would meet the body.

I don't the way it looks. It should look like a Nikon or a Canon, because then it'll be better.

Seriously, I'm not really excited by how it looks. But I'll probably stay with my K-3 anyway.

The official announcement talks about an "image cropping feature"; presumably that means that it can adjust its use of the sensor to include only that part covered by the DA lens.

This is one thing that makes it special, great feature. Crop Mode.

Pardon me, I know it's one of the very few things that's certain at this moment... but... seriously?
A FF camera comes out and everyone's just thinking about using it in crop mode!?!?

Depending upon what day it is Uluru might chime in as well - or he might be singing praises. Who knows?
