From a Hongkong pentax forum. The words below are,

New PRIME II image engine
almost 100% view finder coverage. Pentaprism type
14.6M effective pixels CMOS sensor
3 inches with 920,000 pixels LCD with live view, HD video and HDMI output
Build-in SR image stabilization, Mag-alloy body with water and dust proof, supersonic duct removal system

That's all.

Almost 100% viewfinder? That's annoying - not so much the almost part but the not giving an exact figure part. Also the the almost part

Super-sonic dust removal is interesting - presumably Pentax have found away around Olympus' patents then? Ot liscenced them?

There are 2 versions of specification of K-7. Funny...There is difference.
One has 1/180 x-sync, second - 1/250. For example.

Is that a FA77/1.8 limited on that K-7?

Looks like the 77mm to me.

I guess they pictured it with that because it is a good looking lens - although they could equally have used the 35mm Macro ltd or one of the other DAs.

I think they chose the FA 77 Limited because "77" is the magical value in this camera...

AFAIK camera manufacturers often use words like 'almost' or 'approx' when mentioning 100% viewfinder because no camera has 'precise' 100% viewfinder.

I take the Chinese word to mean "approximately" or "about" more than "almost". If you notice, its the same word they also use to state that the sensor is 14.6MP.
