I think new sensor could be in K-70 (?) with 4 fps.
I'm guessing a 12.something MP sensor. Maybe they are talking to their old supplier Sony for these sensors. <-- all speculation though, no "sources" involved.

If you are going to make it a mid-range camera you have to compete with the likes of the D90 - which has a pentaprism (just like the D70 did around the same time as the DS).
The Canon 500D has pentamirror, not pentaprism, and it cost like the D90.

I am skeptical that it will be a DSLR. It will be goofy.

No Pentaprism, no buyers! :|

If the replacement for the K200D still has a pentamirror I simply will not be buying / upgrading.

AA batteries and a Pentaprism are the two main big things I will be looking for.

I find the K200D's Pentamirror viewfinder very dull and the meter displays very hard to read. In fact I have to move my eye slightly off center to even get the metering sharp to view.

I also hope to see video support, but I think that's a safe bet in a new camera.
