Yes, but Pentax Germany says 16:00 CEST and they cannot be that wrong with just 5 hours to go :ugh:

Does anybody else lament the loss of the chrome shutter release button? Nothing better than handing the camera to someone unfamiliar and saying "just push the silver button"...
Nope, and the K20D already had a black one BTW. A silver button is just another annoying source of highlight reflection when you working in studio trying to setup the lights. Ok, generally you can clone out these highlights in PP afterwards, but the less you need to do this the better.

I also appreciated the K20D dropping the silver button after the K10D still had it, because the grip for the K10D didn't have the silver button. The K20D's button had the same feel as the one on the grip, so that was nice too...

Battery is 7.4 Volts. 8.3 volts with AC adapter,. But 9 Volts with 6 AA lithium batteries. What can we do with 9 volts that can not be done with 7.4?

It looks like its a choice of battery in the camera;
But can 6 R6/AA get place in the camera?

Probably only in the grip, the body being small enough, I do not see where one could put 6xAA in the body alone.

I'm failing to see where the grip is any bigger than the current one. Different and better designed perhaps, but no larger to make up for the smaller body.

so, what's on that fact-sheet we already didn't knew, or wasn't confirmed:
* X-sync: 1/180s
* green AF-assist light
* DA18-55 WR [IF] - kit lens got internal focus mechanism

I've not been able to spot anything that's different from the leaked specs. X-sync is 1/180 (since there was some debate about that).
