Is it just me or is the new eye-cup totally different in shape and much bigger?
Looks like it.

Not just you. It looks bigger to me also. I'm betting this camera has a killer viewfinder.
I wouldn't bet on it but it may be

I just have to chime in to say that from what I can see, I love the looks of this chunky, squared little beast. My rounded K10D suddenly looks sort of '90s to me now--I guess it's more aerodynamic . . .

New Pentax body! I just found this picture in photo section of blog from where is other pictures...
As this is the best image we have so far, I tried to improve on it a bit as well. Of course, not to be deblurred this much any more

I hope some find my postprocessed version more convenient to look at.

I usually try and hold off speculating, but all these leaks have me pretty well convinced.

In terms of the whole "pro" camera debate, I think the answer is pretty simple: If your camera can consistently produce for you the shots you are trying to get, and provides sufficient quality for your client, then it is a pro camera. I'd much rather have a lighter, more interesting looking body than a bulky behemoth that tries to hard to look like a Canikon.

We all know why we shoot Pentax– for their dedication to the photographer, not the idea of photography, for all the little extra features that make their products a joy to use. There are always going to be people who think it necessary to belittle us for not using what they think we should be, but these are the same people who teased you in school to make themselves feel better. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a truly experienced and talented photographer who thinks camera brand makes any significant difference.

My only question is regarding the possible larger sensor, even if its not full frame as Pentax have said. If they do move up to an APS-H sensor, will we still be able to use all our DA and digital lenses, or will we get dark circles?

Looks like this new cam's grip is smaller than my K10D. Sometimes smaller isn't always better...

The eyecup looks seriously like nothing K-D series had before and the whole pentaprism box is different. Something tells me that is a camera with EVF.

HDR?

[QUOTE=ogl;563598]Yes...Like 2 overlapping squares...
Unknown sign.

Could it be multiple exposure combined into one as in HDR?

(Same as the tripple squares button on left upper corner on K10D, or evolved to automatic incamera HDR ?)

Seems like a nice body to use with the limited lenses (:

I really like the lines which reflects a retro-look!

Looks like a square viewfinder to me. meaning we'll get a square sensor as well. The button with the square white patch on it could be used to switch square/landscape shooting on/off.

The second letter of the right button could be a "Z".

the front grip yes, but look at the rear. from that picture, it looks like the grip goes further back into the palm instead of the fingers by the bulge in the rear. kind of innovative if that's the case, I don't know other cameras that do that.

I'm seeing something green next to the rear wheel. Just where the thumb should be.
It would be a good place for it.

Not quite. Ît could use a design of theirs where they make 2 or more image save during one entire exposure operation, I mean, between the start of the leading curtain and the stop of the trailing curtain they obtain two or more(the more the best) values of exposure to be added and processed at once, and saved in the SD card.

On the small side though, but perhaps deeper grip compensate this.
Hopefully the weight is not to much reduced compared to K10/K20, as I prefer some inertia reducing shake (I'm a heavy coffee drinker)!
