I'm pretty sure it wasn't. It was taken from some photographer's website, and it's been obviously doctored. The most likely scenario (to me at least) is that he either has a K-7 (maybe prototype) or pictures of it and he made this out of it.

the one posted in the mega-thread was higher quality, no crudely rounded edges and not rejpegged like that.

but i guess you guys are right, Pentax wouldn't be that sloppy right? after Ned B's teaser i guess i'm just a bit wary (and weary).

This is great news especially for someone (like me) who has not upgraded the camera in a while. When K-7 is released, I am so definitely gonna get one.

I just hope all these talks and rumours about focus assist lamp, and other great features are real. I will be a happy man if they are!

Right now, I just have to "enjoy waiting"

It's the same image, just checked. It seems to be from this site: Maksim Chicherin Photography Official Web Site

If the guy who made it has the camera (or a leaked photo) it would make sense that he cloned out the "K-7" to try and avoid any NDA issues. Then again, he could have pulled it from somewhere else as well.

Either way, I'm pretty sure even if the picture of the camera is from Pentax, the "Enjoy Waiting" part was added in photoshop.

He is beta-tester. Has been using K-7 for some time.

OK, I'll be the first to call BS on this photo. Or at least I hope so. Check out the camera strap ring on the right side (left side of camera). Can we say 70s-80s?

Also - that LED next to the shutter release looks suspect to me. Why is it not flat so it can focus the light straight ahead?

I think you might actually be the LAST to call BS on the photos...

I lol'd a little...I suppose everyone wants to create a thread so it can become famous like the megathread. Or every little new detail deserves its own thread. Or something

As was just quoted by me...you are not the first (check the thread hovering near the top of the news and rumors section...can't miss it).

IF the images already posted are true and correct, it WILL feature old-school SLR lugs.

And read a few responses up for the answer to your second point...

But, don't you think that the hype is just a bit too contrived for a company with such a small market share?
