To say honest we know NOTHING about new camera.
All information with specs are RUMORS or FANTASIES. Or SOMEBODY's WISH.

We see only parts of body.

The body is concept type, I like it - very special. Unusual.
We also know that camera will have VIDEO mode, unique VF and it's ALL.
Wait, didn't you yourself claim that it would have a 1.3x crop mode for FA/M/A lenses and video after 'talking' with someone from Pentax Europe? Are you saying you made that up?

35mm film gauge

QuoteOriginally posted by spence.nicholson Quote
No the sensor is the same size as a Super 35mm film gate. It is not APS-C
Oh, this thread is spinning so fast -- almost impossible to get back to this topic

Just this much:

35mm film gauge is 35mm, but movie film is exposed with the long side vertical (still image uses horizontal orientation for its long size). So, 35mm movie film is about 50% of surface of 35mm still image film.

Precisely:
RED One sensor: 24.4 x 13.7 mm
K-m sensor: 23.5 x 15.7 mm

I took the liberty to ignore this 10% difference and call both cameras "APS-C".

but I just wanted to point out that anyone can type in his watermark. Having the same watermark doesn't mean it came from the same person.
PENTAX - Windows Live

Then, here comes the evidence.
Even if he got this picture from others, it's true that he "leaked first."
Also considered that he has been leaking all of the recent spyshots.

Another picture...

Now, this looks more like a planned leak than those blurry pictures (unless somone recoginzes this as a known camera):

Cool! I just had my doubts since the initial image on the previous page was hosted on a Russian forum!

He-he...I've heard, but who can confirm it?
It could be disinformation. I can't say that it's true and information is 100% real.

Only real specs in Pentax brochure or official announcement with specs are 100% truth.

I guess you were faster....

If he/she is on the inside it can't be too hard to track him/her down and kick him out.....unless Pentax wanted this to happen. But if I were Pentax I wouldn't have started a leak whith those blurry pictures....this last one looks more professional. Unless they wanted it to look like an unintentional leak of course, then they succeeded.

Dumbest comment yet

The rumours are spreading to a lot of tech web sites now. But I had to laugh when I read this: Pentax to announce high-end dSLR end May? - Digital Cameras - Crave - CNET Asia

"According to an Austrian imaging site, fotographie, a source said the new camera will be known as the K7D, with the Japanese company announcing it at the end of May.
If that's true, it will be an interesting development as previous dSLRs have always steered clear of the D suffix, probably to avoid confusion with Canon and Nikon's shooters. "

Right.

You can guess that all merged photos including DA 55* proceeded from this person! This person possibly is engaged in preparation of booklets and other polygraphic materials. This having merged intended, for heating of public! Good luck and greetings from Russia.

More realistic specs on dpreview:

QuoteQuote:
It will be the same K20D with better LV, the same SAFOX VIII (a bit better), with new AF mode - 6.5 fps in 6 MP jpeg, HD video and new body.
The same 1/180 and 1/4000.
The new version of 14.6 CMOS sensor of Samsung.
IT ALL!!!! No any revolution.
...
1500 is pre-order price, the real price will be under 1300 euro.
Camera will be with unique VF.

These specs on DPR were said by Yana36, and if I understand correctly, this is the same person that OGL here

I think there should be some surprises in the new body...

If you forget about the (probably) unique design of the body, specs wise it doesn't seem competitive against the d300... (and more expensive). That's not the way Pentax used to think.

The K10/K20/K7(?) line isn't meant to compete with the D300 line, it's meant to compete against the D80/D90 line.

Look at the D90 specs and you'll have a more reasonable estimate of what's coming from Pentax.

May be, may be..., but... the exactly same information at the exactly same time appears from You here and from Yana36 on DPR. And not only this time, but regularly...
