IIRC The external shells are always a combination of polycarbonate and metal. It's the frame and internal sheall that matter. Besides, the bey're not showing the top plate at all in the stripped photos.

The K-5 had a plastic back side, but the K-3 is metal all around (the popup flash excluded.)

I believe the entire top is plastic. Otherwise they would have shown the metal part in the stripped down photo, and it seems as if the top is in one piece. I haven’t seen any lines suggesting otherwise.
I'm pretty sure I saw such picture but can find it now.

The latest set of pictures https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/16-pentax-news-rumors/314198-more-new-k-1...ml#post3533780 gives a good view IMHO.

It really looks like collective hysteria over here. Are you going crazy with this Pentax full frame ?

Thanks! It used to be goalies mostly but now our junior program has started to churn out pretty promising dmen and forwards too (R. Ristolainen in Buffalo, S. Vatanen in Anaheim, O. Määttä in Pitsburgh and the yet undrafted P. Laine & J. Puljujärvi).

I used to live in Toronto for a couple years so I got to see a couple NHL games...and I was there to see the World Cup of Hockey semis and final in 2004, in person

Since you didn't use "Reply to Thread", I don't know to whom this was addressed ... but I'll answer anyway. Personally, I'm juggling two announcements; in addition to news from Pentax, in 2-1/2 hours the college where my wife is an administrator (and I teach part-time) will be announcing whom their new president will be.

Just kidding, no about anyone in particular :-) I just saw that the News & rumors threads used to have 20 or 30 members viewing it, this number jumped to more than 600.

Pentaxforums is doomed! Overrun by FF excitement.

one of the key things I was hoping for was ISO 50 like the D800. Ah well...

I am naive about this, but how much of a difference would ISO 50 make?

ISO 100-204,800 is the standard range. There might well yet be an expanded range.

The difference between having, or not having to find another subject to complain about?
