Did you notice that there is going to be a 50-200 WR lens too?
first thing i noticed. plus a lot more.

looks like nothing groundbreaking about the viewfinder, i think he even compares it the same to the K10/K20.

thanks again for the link. how'd you find out about it?

The viewfinder coverage is about 100% (vs 95% of K10D/K20D), but the Magnification is probably the same.

The link was firstly leaked on a Chinese photo forum ...

I love the red used for the gasket. I hope Pentax keeps using it!

I literally have the money ready in my hand to (pre)order this camera the second it comes out. The next 36-48 hours will be pure agony...

In one of the menu item, it says "Composition Adjust."...

What is it for?

That 50-200mm looks nice. The whole new direction in design is promising. Hopefully they'll be introducing a few more NEW lenses too. Not just previous designs weathersealed.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, since I've only been following Pentax for a little while, but the 50-200 looks like it's going back to the styling of older K-mount lenses, particularly the pattern on the focus and zoom rings--dots instead of ridges. I think this is what Pentax meant when they said they'd redesign a few lenses to match the new body. The K-7 takes some style cues from classic Pentax, and so do the new lenses. Regardless, I like!

Nope. It is the output format for the HDMI!
