Pentax has never over delivered on a rumour. The only thing that seems plausible is that a camera called the K-3 will be announced within the next month.
Therefore the most we can expect is a an APS-C based camera.
With Pentax rumours always expect the absolute bare-minimum. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if we got a really basic 16mp K-300 and nothing else to be honest!
I think you are on the money 100%. Ricehigh has not got a good track record on rumours. Esp. considering post (a while ago) about an even numbered AF system (i.e. the number of AF points)

A person like him is prone to attract trolls. The fact that he publishes anything doesn't really help with that.
It's pretty hard to get valid information if you're an insider. He's at the opposite side of the spectrum.

All I want is a 24mp APSC in a K-5 body that has great high ISO, large buffer and better AF tracking..
Then I think you'd have all these (and more) in the new K-3

Are you hinting at something?


Anyway K5IIs + K30 features all in one camera, its going to be very good already with that.

This is probably false.

If Adam knew about this, he would have posted a countdown on the front page, as he did for the K-30 and K-5 II announcements. Adam himself has stated that we shouldn't expect a full frame camera until 2014. I don't have much reason to believe this rumor.

Heh.... And that's nice to know that my prediction would be pretty spot-on!

I've just watched a PBS special on "Alternate Universes", "Parralel Universes" and the likes ...

Is this thread for real?

He was pretty brash sharing the stuff he did, and when I challenged him on it, he thought he had a lawyer friend cover his back on the things he did say. NDA can't mean sharing those kind of details would be OK. Sounds like there's some truth in all this madness after all: He *was* under an NDA and as such *did* have a prototype he was betatesting, which he was quite happy to share was a FF camera with the same 24Mp sensor in the D600. But definitely no time frame for it to be announced. Yep, another year of waiting wouldn't go awry.

Perhaps Ricoh is angriest not about his blabbing he had one of their prototypes, but at his stated intent -- he was blabbing in order to prod them, in his small way, into releasing the thing as quickly as possible.
