1) No
2) Yes
3) Define 'fast'
4) No, by far (nobody does save for mirrorless cameras with on-sensor phase detection autofocus)
5) Mostly revamped lenses.
I see. It still sounds as a monster camera with 36mp, large OVF, fast AF, super pixel shifting ...

For those who are in the know, is there any chance the sensor will be more than 36mp? Is this part of what will surprise people?

They could tell you, but then they'd have to kill you...

Sounds more like the suspense is killing some of those that are not yet in the know

Hope that a 'small RAW' option will be available. Even at 36MPx that's more MPx that I really need for 99% of what I do...

Not to mention those who know everything but must say nothing.

Kenspo and btnapa etc. must be emailing each other constantly, raving to each other about how freaking incredible this camera is, because the only ones they can safely talk to are others who are "in on it".

I am really hoping that it isn't more than 36 mp. Really, do we need more than that?

If it is 36mp, when shifted, it will be more than 42?!!

You are funny. How did you know!!!? Kenspo is official I am not. I just happen to be a garden variety Pentaxian. I held the sucker in my hand and it felt so good, just like all the other Pentax bodies I have owned over the years. I wish they will hurry up and announce it officially. The suspense is killing me! What I saw will wipe the floor with anything out there in its price range, including some heavy hitters. Pentax is back and Ricoh mean business baby!

I just hope they will offer a nice bundle-price together with the 24-70 f2.8 - if, then my willpower will be broken and Im "all-in" and will forget - just for a few mousclicks - how much money it is and hope my girlfriend meant it as she said, when she told me "Do what you want."

Most of the time no, but sometimes yes.
If it is 42 I hope there will be an option where the camera down samples the raw data and creates a smaller "raw"-file. Then we would have it all!!
