How would you know? everyone who has one is under NDA. There is a temptation to release vague, innocuous details, but the long term barring from testing any further products from Pentax is the penalty... if you get caught. Personally I wouldn't trust ANYONE on here to keep such information to themselves.
Unless paid accordingly

If any exist. Ricoh has never indicated that there were any.

Closer to the launch date, a few 'pre-production' bodies may go out to select reviewers, I guess. Probably as close as we will get to any feedback from testers.
Sorry, but that doesn't make any sense. Closer to the launch date there would be no time for fixing discovered issues, for making changes based on that feedback.

Reviewers should receive hand-assembled production bodies with Diamond Beta (fully-working) firmware well enough in advance of shipping to prepare articles for publication concurrent with shipment of production cameras.

Judging from the lcd shape it looks to me like the sensor is undoubtably square????.....don't you think

Beta testers are like the men in black (all have seen them, but nobody knows where exactly), I believe instead that they are working on a project that must not fail, then hundreds of checks and maybe even small changes, then that will upset the future owners of Pentax K .... not worried about the name, but also the compatibility with APS lenses.
Do not you think?

I am willing to make the sacrifice and test the beta anyone in control, there reading this thread. Absolutely will give it a real trial. Would look good in black and shades as well, if I do say so myself.

PS, Private message me for contact details.

I am pretty sure it's just crappy translation, sadly.

But as it's rumour & speculation central, this, we could all chew on a 'maybe the crop mode setting on the left dial does weird things [on top of the expected ASPC crop]' bone. If going down that route amuses, that is. :]

It is truly mind-boggling the conclusions some here will seriously leap to based on what is clearly a badly (or not at all) proofread web page.

It's more that people really do care. Which is nice. But also why advertisements / teasers and viral marketing work.

I asked a member to make a real image to look like the photoshop I was pointing at. Basicly my intuļtion was right. The lens would Block the Pentax Logo.



Follow the image to look at his work.

The Pentax logo, given that in practice it is the "first" FF and size are higher, could be on top of pentaprism, would not you like? Canon, Nikon, Sony does not have problems!

Wait. You asked someone to make an image in Photoshop to "prove" another image made in Photoshop is not realistic?
Or you're merely trying to "prove" that an unnamed lens would necessarily obstruct the logo on the K-1, with a completely different camera and whatever lens?

P.S. One word: perspective. We're supposed to know about it.
