It's legit

But please, please, Dutch != German. You found this on a German forum, the Dutch are living in another country, namely The Netherlands

The only thing I might not like is the new focus point selection technique. I'm very used to switching focus points with the 4-way select button.

yeah, i hope that's just a missunderstanding (as in, you need to select that mode once, but after it will be default and can use the 4-way pad as with the k10d/k20d).

Not only is the SR switch missing but the locking tab for the SD card door. A simple spring loaded door is not going to offer much WS. bracket button?

What new focus selection technique ? The 4-way is stil there (although it is rumour one has to press "Ok" before it can be used to move the AF point).

Pressing "OK" is what he meant.

It is if we have to press "Ok" everytime we want to move the AF point around...

But I can't believe Pentax would make such a stupid ergonomic mistake.

consider it the same 'lock' button on top of the mode dial but for AF points. now both your exposure mode and AF point won't move unless you really mean for them to.

your thumb is right there anyway.

I bet there's a menu option to make it required or not.
