Wouldn’t that cause a stir?

Next asahiman is unmasked and we discover she’s a viral marketing contractor sitting in a cubby in Georgia.

It has the bump (of the screwdrive motor?), the mirrorbox shape and proportions of the K-3. Perhaps the mirror box protrusion is a bit more rounded like a K70.

So most likely an apsc camera. Perhaps starving a full frame would result in similar body but i doubt it.

The prism seems too small for an FF body...

What's 0218? February 2018 would seem obvious, but then does it mean they are going to unveil it before CP+?

Sure, so they will be able to present it at CP+.

Assuming it's genuine.

Unless we’re missing a digit and it’s 1218, releasing in December...

But that’s probably just the Internet snark talking 😛

Released sometime in February...
If it's a K3 III it's definitely got a new look to it.
Or maybe it's a baby K-1.

Asahi man says no apsc flagship until later this year. I think this is K1 successor.
