EDITED: Image removed because convinced of hoaxes.


It's true that MZ1 prototype makes me think about those leaked K7 images:



I will of course remove these by Edit if you think those are indeed photoshoped (last one is known to be authentic).

I like this one the most. It compares it to a K20D by overlaying the mounts. Original thread is

thibs,

first of all, most won't see the image. Just like with Vils image, the Chinese site prohibits cross-linking and people w/o the image in their browser cache see a "link prohibited" logo image only.

Image #1 (pop up flash):
=================
I verified that this is EXACTLY the pop-up flash from the K-m. I compared looking from the exact same angle. I additionally deburred and gamma-corrected the photo to inspect the fixation point. Those are diferent for K-m and K7. The one on the photo is from K-m.

So, this photo is a hoax.

The only image alteration are the four LED top of the flash light which the hoaxer wanted us to make believe is the new focus assist lamp ...

isnt it more likely to be a k300d rather than a k30d? given one is discontinued and running out of stock and one isnt.
also is has two buttons on the top right that are in the same place in the k200d and not the k20d

though i do appreciate that the dial looks like it has no newbie modes and the shutter button is not silver.

Pentax already has said that it will have more advanced features than the k20d although it wont be a successor to it.
