Just for the sake of masochism I went to DPR site and read the comments.
Came back terminally ill.
So much doom and gloom, and the specs haven't even been released yet lol!

Why does everyone think Pentax HAS to go mirrorless to succeed? I've owned a Sony a55 with electronic viewfinder I can tell you traditional DSLRs still have their advantages and I do prefer them.

Moving on to wilder speculation, there is the matter of a name. I suggest something with the allure of Pentax's glorious near past. How about...

K-*ister


...pronounced kay-spat'-istur' * or (alternatively) kay-star-ees'-tar. Hey! No laughter! I am serious.

* Following the convention in IT and programming circles of pronouncing the character "*" as "splat".

The name will of course be LX-D, and pronounced LSD :-)

What if one of the unnamed buttons unlocks the screen to be pushed forward towards you, which then enables you more space to lift it with a finger from the bottom right corner?

I think they should name it the K-Sera Sera.

But, knowing Ricoh, whatever will be, will be...

Those things on top are for the autofocus, right?

And the laser rangefinder just has a really high setting...

Make that names. I wouldn't be surprised if they released a flash and GPS version, in black and silver of course. Well if you are going to have a Birthday, go big.

It is a handsome body too.

Moveable LCD ?

Is that an inset for a fingertip to lift the LCD, on the lower right? It may be a great camera, but if there is no mechanism to change the LCD orientation, as on the K70, I just can't use it.

That is it! You made the ’brick’ look too good. Can’t take this no more. Going to leave now as fast as AF on that thing. What ever it is. Not looking back untill I have had couple of deep breath! (Beer)
Way too good. I used my Q-7 for a few weeks ..... and then decided that I was 100% correct - if a camera doesn't have an EVF, I have absolutely no interest.
