So they've made lights inside the mount!

So you can change lenses in pitch black environments.

I have a feeling that the view finder might surprise. The prism house seems larger then a 100% viewfinder, GPS and Wifi can explain. There is a mystic object in front of the focusing screen inside the mount. There have also been some hints of a surprising view finder. What might be there? More info about settings or leveling? Maybe a histogram under the image? Something else? Maybe my feeling are plain out wrong.

Best not accidentally push that button during long night time exposures...

The mount has a red LED so that you know how to put your lens

Well, this is really interesting, the suspense is maximum.
I expect to have a nice surprise next thursday.

What i am waiting for is low noise, big dynamic range, electronic shutter, fast AF, high fps, global shutter and 4K. That's all folks!

You can take all the mirror "guts" of the camera out and turn it into mirror-less... This is something some mirror-less cameras have! They lack the mirror

Can't wait to see how ISO 51200 looks like... (I tried it a few times on the K-5IIs just for the heck of it... of course it's no way usable, unless on an old phone with a screen res lower than 1280x720!)

My WAG on a few of the features:

1) You will be able to trigger multiple cameras from the one you have. You enter a code so that only the cameras you want to fire will trigger. While working a concert this would be a pretty neat function.
2) It will have a panorama function similar to a smart phone. It will build an image as you rotate the camera.
3) Decent video with real time auto focus.

this sounds quite nice. I friend showed me a cool feature of his olympus with longexposure (no blowing up the highlights and keeping the ground... something like this)!?
Another try would be lit up buttons on the back so I can finally throw my headlamp away
This "jaw dropping stuff" is making me more curious I thought I could be HAHA

Anyways, is there something like a liveticker or so!? We know the apple keynote events... will it be streamed somewhere?
I want to follow this event somehow...

Some will be WOW and be all over it, some will be neutral and some will explode in negativity. Like every camera release

I have the same feeling. I measured the viewfinder size based on the leaked pictures which is about 1.3x of K3... So it should be 0.76x... Anyway, my measurement is subject to errors...
