Do you guys think this will be a K200D replacement or a K20D replacement?

I hope its a K20D replacement with much better AF (SAVOX IX) and better ISO. I'd get it right away if it is.

I'm seeing something green next to the rear wheel. Just where the thumb should be.
It would be a good place for it.
Or perhaps the green button is now obsolete, as the mount is no longer crippled.

What is that?? The black round thingy

And the flash seem to be alot longer and be able to go alot higher from the sensor than the one on k20d
And it looks like you just push the cover for the flash socket forvard instead of taking it of
Edit: after looking at the closeup It looks like the flash is smaller and a realy new desig
Well I can see two new bodies here. One left of the K20D, the new xC ??? and the other between the K20D and K-M at right. This second body looks pretty much like the new K3D. The prism and mirror box is way larger that any of the others.

Pretty sure that the one in between K20D and KM is the K200D. I'm looking at mine right now and they look identical. Sorry.

i feel like k3d would not have scene modes, as it appears the camera between the k20 and km does

As our first president said: "We are allowed to dream today ... tomorrow is a new day."

FF no, APS-H maybe (I do hope so).

It seems that we are looking at (left to right): K2D (K3D?), K20D, K200D, K2000.

Phew!!!!! Pentax should change naming of their cameras right away: I had to double check what I just typed to make sure I got all zeroes and Ds right!

a purely electronic viewfinder would be smaller than an optical viewfinder, not bigger, as there's no need for a prism.

Pentax has already publicly stated that they're not interested in EVF, or FF for that matter (for the time being at least, they said they only had the R&D funds to do either FF or 645D, and they chose the latter).

Why do these rumors still persist?

There seems to be a popup flash as usual, I believe I see the hinge just behind the flash-shoe. It’s probably just a small cosmetic change of the flash/prism-house.

Also the flash-shoe is of a “known” size and might be used as size-reference.
