K-3 Camera Icon type is coming up wrong in Flickr Exif!

Not a big deal by any means, but if you take a look next to the exif info for the K-3, the generic icon depicting the type of camera is wrong, it should show up as a DSLR not P&S/mirrorless:

Compared to: (Pentax K-30...shows up as a DSLR)

I noticed that other peoples K-3 photos are showing up the same way.

True. More than that, I'd prefer my Sigma 10-20mm 3.5 not show up as a Sigma 70-200.

Flickr takes a long time to add Pentax cameras to their database. I don't think the K-01 was added until after it was discontinued. The 645D has never been added, and the 645Z will probably be ignored as well. There are 4 types of Q and none of them are there either.
