The K10D comes close with the instant zoom wheel on the back but it zooms to center, not to the selected focus point. I have mine set to zoom to 100% on the first roll.

What X (magnification) is that?
Thanks.
Great question.

Edit x2:
Pronounced most likely fake.

Great question.
I set mine to 4x mag on my K20D.
And after comparing it to 100% or 1:1 on my monitor,
that's the closest picture to 100% viewing.

Why is the lens release on the wrong side?

I thought the new camera was going to have a new square sensor? Isn't that what Pentax said a couple months ago.

Just to keep this epic thread growing, from Ricehigh's blog:

Edit:
Could be an earlier prototype since there are some marked differences between this one and other pictures we have seen.
Looks like someone photo shopped an Olympus E3.

Ogl, that's pretty obvious: There's no way the K10/K10 battery grip could fit the K7 ;-)

If that's all bad news, no problem ...
good shoot. smart.

I just wondered shortly after had posted the "news" but it just not looks like the E-3 neither.

Anyway, its probably a fake. I've updated my blog post already.

Hrm. Seems likely: the word 'Pentax' isn't even on straight.

As far as I know, Pentax has only said that they plan on staying with APS-C sized sensors. Maybe in the future FF, but then the lens lineup must be prepared for that first. There has never been any talk about square or other formats than APS-C from Pentax or Hoya. But it do keep surface on this an many other forums for some reason. Probably just wishful thinking from a few users......very few I guess actually, since I personally don't think it adds much to my camera, except for cost.

There are too many portrait photographers out there that simply can't hold a camera in any other way than in a vertical position with a grip attached. They don't need square sensors...
