New Modular DSLR-like System

Pentax Research is apparently ditching the old-style DSLR designs and moving to a modular component system (like RED and the MF boys).

Here's a picture I grabbed quickly before security marched me out. I was lucky enough to swap SD cards before they grabbed my camera.

Notice the simplicity in design. I think that's a pro-style flash on top.

The colors seem a little bold to me, but I guess we'll get used to them.

Best,

gMAtt

They're K'Nex (said like connex). Most of their stuff looks different but these are their Lego tie-in blocks. K'NEX - The World's Most Creative Construction Toy.

MY wife was kind enough to build these for me!

And yes... I joined just to start this thread. Sad, huh?

Yes! I have a K10d. (check my profile) I purchased it right before the K20D announcements for a pretty good price. This site was one of the few that helped me make my decision

I thought this was going to be a post about 'RED', but instead its 'ORANGE', 'GREEN', 'BLUE', 'BLACK' and 'ANOTHER ORANGE'.

You're getting soft, Gooshin! ... I can see you starting to hug people around here in a matter of days ... some time ago if a noob would make his first post on this forum in this pathetic kind of a word game way (promise some revolutionary news in the title and provide a picture with some Lego parts) and with zero "news or rumor" content you would of eviscerate him ...

That must be a Collapsible Summicron 50mm f/2 on the right! It can only be good news if Pentax is having an alliance with Leica

Sorry, I am not amused though.
This really belongs to the General Talk forum, not here.
