This is getting that speculative, I just have to join in :-)

First we have two "shadow cameras", one on the taxis and one in the flash ad.
Second, (I'm really getting insanely speculative now), the spot light in the flash ad stopped and flashed at two devices: One P&S and the K20d, and NOT at the mysterious shadow camera.

If this was intended at all by Pentax adversing people, it would mean:
- Update to K20 (which yould be the "taxi cam")
- a P&S
- Maybe a prototype of a new DSLR (probably below K200d, because of missing mode dial)

While I enjoy speculating, Pentax people must be having a party when reading all the nonsense we are reading from their ads ;-)

I wouldn't read too much into that ad...

Not that it is worth much, we all know cabbies but...

As point of reference I took the mode dial and the lens
Conclusion.

What is shown on the cab is much smaller than the K20D
as graphic artists stretch and pull images to fit adspace all the time. Also, deletion and change of details may just be an artistic decision, or a mistake due to time constraints, not necessarily a detailed technically-correct rendering of future models. They could've just wanted a generic 'camera' that didn't depict any known model.

As for my wishes at Photokina, I'm hoping for a full-frame KxD @ 24-30 megs with 5+ frames a second and a 250 flash sync with a true mirror lockup and internal mechanical eyepiece blind, a 645D multi-mount, and a little teeny Limited no-viewfinder neo-rangefinder thingy, as well as the release of those long-delayed lenses and teleconverters, a great new multi-adjustable macro-ring flash, and the announcements of a DA*135 f1.8 and a DA* 24 f1.4 limiteds in titanium, both in powder-coated screaming dicky-bird Ferrari YELLOW, with bright red led DOF scales!


Cheers,
Cameron

the claim was that ogl actually had it (K2KD) in his own hands

PS: so he probably traded SA-2 Guideline spare parts for K2KD from Pentax factory.

Maybe they even change the model name because there is no space to stamp so many characters on the body.

I saw photos of camera and I know the specs.
Not only me. There are several men here who already even shooted by this model. But we don't know the real name.
No space to put K2000.
I saw the camera with deleted name.

If a K20D super is on the way, I would expect a bigger, higher res lcd, and perhaps an improved AF system.
As Samsung is the king of LCD design/production, they should have no trouble in matching the quality of the 3" hi rez screens used on other DSLR's since 2007 - maybe even better.

The live view can be brought closer to the better versions by including live histogram, exposure simulation, contrast detect AF to stop the mirror clunking, and definitely better magnifications.

If the AF does get improved by speed and especially including competitive predictive focusing - hopefully this would mean there is a pretty fast processor that should also be able to handle programming the body with those additional up-to-date live-view features.
