For a moment I thought you had made a mistake and linked me to a bunch of pictures of the K-7. Then I noticed that the second thumbnail was indeed a medium format camera.

The question now is whether that's an accidental leak of an image of a finalized, production 645D or whether it's just one of the myriad prototype images that have been floating around for a while now that somehow accidentally made it into the page's image cache...

I dont , but looks like accidently newegg put up image of medium format slr instead of K-7. That in itself is quite funny.

Funny. Here's the image (taken from newegg.com) in case they take it down.

It looks awfully to me like an old Pentax 645D proto (there were more than a few of those displayed accross the years)

In a few month, we'll all be able able to old one in hand (at least if you are willing to go to Japan or living in a major urban center)

So let's wait a little.

When I bought my K-7 a couple months back last year from Newegg, they also had this picture up. Surprised they haven't taken it down yet, maybe someone should report the error to them lol.

Happily doing so. There's little chance I'll be able to afford owning one, so it's not too hard to be patient about waiting for the privelege of looking at them on the internet.
