Well spotted Odysseus. I love the internet rumor mill...
Still, some interesting street photography.
The guy who posted these photos on xitek.com is just trying to pull a prank

Anyway, I do like these pictures. Some show migrant workers in China returning home before Chinese New Year.

Hmmm, I'm just thinking maybe we should fake the Exif and upload some pictures showing K1.
I'm sure we'll have a blast the next couple of days!

That seems to be a reasonable best guess as far as timing is concerned.

That would be an OK local price. About half-way between D750 (about $2300) and D810 (about $3300).

I was hoping it would be D750ish myself. Can't see it being that attractive to other brand photogs at higher prices....just my view.

Of course, I'd like to see it at D750 price too. And I reckon Ricoh would certainly sell a lot more K-1's locally at $2300 than at $2900, to Pentax users and other brand folks.

Unsubstantiated reports on the web saying initial pricing = €1,999 or $2,200 (not a direct currency swap as US do not have VAT) and available in kit form with DFA28-105 f/3.5-5.6

It comes from there (same person behind the two websites):

Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR camera: price and kit lens info | Pentax Rumors

Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR camera: price and kit lens rumors | Photo Rumors

(note the subtle shift from one title to the other one )

and was first reported here by Imp:

Here you go! Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR camera: price and kit lens info | Pentax Rumors

It says K-1 is to be sold with a kit lens, in addition to a body only offering. The kit lens will be the (new) 28-105 f/3.5-5.6. This does sound a bit slow, but is on point with what everyone's been saying about a kit lens, and considering the 16-85 is so good, I think this ought to be a winner too...

Also mentions the Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 rebrand.

Kenspo, this wasn't you, was it? of course not
