You think the AA thing is bad, just wait until someone brings up the aperture couplin- aw, crap.

(While I own two cheap AA adapters - clicked "Buy It Now" twice by accident, IIRC - my interest is purely curiosity: how much stuff did they cram in there?)

A lot of brands out there have battery grip connectors inside the battery slot... so you never know .
My Canon battery-grip has a section that emulates a battery, and the grip attaches as a tripod would, so there is no way to tell by looking at the camera that a battery grip exists for it (and then the battery-grip has a tripod connection on its own bottom, so you don't lose anything - the camera has essentially just become higher)

Why do I want this camera so badly!? I can't understand it...
I became weakened almost immediately by this one. It's inexplicable really, and like always, I finally realized all it takes is just a few clicks of a mouse. Think about it... just a few clicks...

Note that in the Henry's ad, there are typos. They list and also describe the HD 18-50, when it is surely the DA L. I only ordered the kit because it's a cheap way for me to acquire a WR lens- I have no WR lenses currently. But the DA L seems just fine to me, I'll spring for a hood later, I don't care about the shift focus, and HD coating really does have a subtle effect.

Which hole are you talking about? The one that (visually) is right next to the rightmost corner of the battery? Looks like something that may be used to align something to...

It looks like the bottom plate is exchangeable... it would be cool if Pentax offered them separately in different colors, so that users can switch the look of their camera even further.

B&H has the same bad info, photo shows the SMC, description says HD.
They also had a typo on the black/orange body and 2 lens kit at $799.
I pre-ordered this kit, and contacted B&H after some members said it would surely be the DA-L SMC lens.
At first the rep said "why don't you think it will be the HD lens, that is what the order says?"
I explained, he checked and replied it was a mistake, it will come with the SMC not HD lens, so I canceled the order, didn't need the 50-200 anyway.
Shortly afterwards that kit went up to $896, but the lens description stayed the same.
Bet there will be some returns.

I'm managing to hold out, wait for reviews and hopefully a price drop, but that Forest Green has my name written all over it.

Nope the hole right under where the info sticker apparently goes. It doesn't have a (visible) black screw in it. Also notice the orange plate has a slanted pattern and the pink one doesn't.

It looks like that bottom plate might(!?) have some secrets hiding... ?

The black part / rubber piece on the outside rim of the battery compartment, looks a lot like a removable piece. This might mean that there will be an option to plug the camera to an AC or something similar!? This way the cable will come out of the camera while the door is closed. If that is true, then there might be a small hope that a battery grip could be produced.
That "empty hole" you guys are talking about could also be for aligning the battery grip to the body... sooo... who tested this camera and have more info on it? Will there be a battery grip for it!?

I've pointed out the rubber plug for the AC adapter before. The adapter is the K-AC128, same as the K-r/30/50/500. The K-30/50/500 have the same plug on the side (in the K-r, it was in the door itself). If the K-S2 was going to have a grip, I think they would have included that in the accessory list at launch.
