...............solid metal construction and a massive viewfinder while keeping a small compact size, like the digital MX, I'd be very happy.
A digital MX......Now that would be worth waiting for.....

P5 and P50 are the same camera - P50 was named P5 in USA, or vice versa.

Correction?

This has already been posted in the K30D mega thread though. Some have already [mis-under/over/]estimated (it's) size and photoshopped it.

MAN! all I can say looking at that "shape" is... It'll kick some as*es

It's not ugly, it's just a different shape... as well as the MZ-S or a Russian plane... they're very different, they have very simple shapes but they're GREAT!

Hmm Interesting

Looks to be taller and narrower than the K20



And I suspect the right hand grip will look a little like this

It does sound too good to be true but I really think this is the result of Hoya taking a hard look at the Pentax brand and capitalizing on its legacy. This is what they meant when they said they are going to re-position Pentax as the outdoor enthusiast brand. I haven't invested much in the K mount yet but if this body lives up to the speculatory hype, I will LBA with abandon!
