K-1 Screen Size?

On this teaser image, we know that the DFA 24-70 is about 3.5 inches thick.

Using the ruler tool in photoshop for comparison, the LCD is just under 3 inches wide horizontally.

Maybe that means the LCD will be 3.5" diagonally. To my knowledge I haven't seen any DSLR/ILC's with screens larger than 3.2"

If I were to guess, they'll re-use the screen on the K-3. But we'll know for sure in less than a month, right?

My estimate is that the top edge of the screen is between 1 and 1.5 inches closer to the camera that took the picture relative to the centerline of the lens, so, the LCD may be less wide than it appears.

Man are we desperate to know every possible specification of the K1. When pre-order time comes, we'll probably gobble up the entire first year's shipments. Ricoh-Pentax will be able to issue four quarterly sales reports at once.

Even D5 and D500 use the 3,2 inch screen, so I don't see anything bigger for the K-1.
