...and doesn't seem to be a K2000D either (K20D facelift or a superior class).

But there's a DA lens on it, this would not be the case if the camera is full-frame.

Pentax K20D Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review
It seems to me it's the same prism and the logo too.
And DA lens on it.

No, the Pentax name is smaller on the prism. For comparison purposes I resized both photos so that the "Pentax" name has the same size on the prism:



Keep in mind this does not say anything about the body size: I just compared the size of the "Pentax" name

(Adding my 0.02 to the rumors )

In fact, this ad says nothing about new camera, except of the fact, that new camera will be shown. That's just "teaser" ad showing some "generic" Pentax DSLR, and not advertising of any particular model just because camera model cannot be recognized.

I'm not completely sure but it looks like the camera on the TAXI add doesn't have a built in flash. :P

Maybe K20 "super" could sport a bigger prism [100% coverage and os on]: with such a thing many people would forget FF

Btw, on my 18-55 the "pentax da" line is in at 10/11 o'clock not 12. Maybe just [officially] photoshopped?

Nope, because a K20D Super would certainly retain the same body (it even remained identical between the K10D and the K20D) in order to allow compatibility with all K10D and K20D accessories. Most important in terms of the Prism and viewfinder would be the O-ME53 loupe and the various matte screens.

Don't forget to have a 3" screen they probably need a bigger body.

I am hoping they would address the AF performance ahead of anything else, though I don't think they would. If there would be an K20D update, they would probably just toy with the spec once again. Anyway, they are fighting a losing battle as any decisions they have made in recent years were always too little too late.

Well, K20D's CMOS sensor is very good, so he'll have either some minor changes (better high ISO) or none at all. Things that really could be better are AF speed, better sensor cleaning system, larger buffer and higher fps. Altough, K100D Super was even less improved than K100D, so maybe I'm asking for too much

I for one believe in a K20D super because I still cannot understand why the Live View of the K20D is so bad while the Samsung GX-20 had a useful one. So I also suspect a more refined K20D with several issues addressed (long exposures without noise reduction applied and a better LV implementation). I am sure Pentax is working on a better AF module. Not a faster one, but one with more "brains" (predictive AF, most especially in AF-C mode). It won't take long before Pentax is at Canon-level. And with Samsung in mind I think the availability of fast, big memory buffers is not a problem

It looks like there is a round button that would be in the right place to pop up a flash though.
