Ever shoot food products for a client where the stuff being photographed may not even be edible?
there are times yes or partly at least especially for stuff that expire in appeal really fast, like ice, or black coffee on a white cup, or even some leafy veggies. Me or my buddies use synthetic lookalikes (cept for the coffee)

Inedible products used to depict edible ones is norm rather than the exception for food photography.

Going back to the name thing again - I think the continued hiding of the name confirms that it won't be K-1, otherwise why bother

Just a crazy thought about naming. If the Pentax , which is referenced on the teaser, was called LX to commemorate 60 years of the company, could the new full frame be called XL? It was supposed to be released in 2015, which is the 40-year anniversary of K-mount.

Yeah - but it was always the obvious name, to the extent that any name was obvious - K7<K5<K3... if the cat really is out of the bag, why not acknowledge it? What harm does it do? (sorry, I'm not a marketing man ;D)

The main problem with K-1 is that it's a name with nowhere to go. Presumably there will be more full frame cameras in future, but then you'd have to cook up a new naming scheme for them. And it also implies a gradual advance over the K-7, K-5and K-3, which is underselling such an important camera. But since when did Pentax naming make sense? It'll probably be K-1.

What about EOS 1Ds? Did they die out?

The main problem with the name is that it's not that much of a problem. There is room above and below, Ricoh would only have to use a different notation if the current "system" would prove insufficient.

Seems as though they also call themselves 'Petnax' at the bottom of the Japanese version!! You would have thought someone would check these things!!
Actually, I kind of like "Petnax"...

They have already told us what it is: "A new chapter in the PENTAX is about to begin!"

It's the K-0 (As in K-zero)

Regarding the naming convention, on the right side of the text section below the teaser image there's a great big

hint
.
Asahi Optical Co. was formed in 1919. LX was actually released in the 61st year of Asahi Optical Co. (1980) so it was marketed as released "in honor of . . . . . "

The Asahiflex IIA was released in 1955. The AP was released in 1957. An LX-derived designation in honor of the 60th anniversary of either legendary camera has precedent.
Copy from Asahi Optical Historical Club on AP:

"World's first 35mm SLR with microprisms on focusing screen. First Japanese SLR with fixed pentaprism. First Japanese SLR with rapid-wind lever. First pentaprism SLR from Asahi Opt. Co. and first example of stylish and rational design in a pentaprism SLR. This SLR set industry standard about styling and controls layout, then copied by Japanese and German industry."

How about K4? Never been done before. Room to move etc. Maybe even K4-F or KF-4.
