After that April Fool's joke...

from 2012, how did the fictional specs line up against the real K-3?

Eerily close it would seem... well, ignoring the full-frame bit about it, it got the 24mp sensor right along with the 200,000 actuations... almost got the AF points as well (2 points over).

I wonder how that happened :P

My wishful thinking for the A-01 will be....

One time payment $10 and get a lifetime free exchange for the latest Pentax DSLR or MILC.

And the fictional K-3 rendering was surprisingly close to the final product.

No, it wasn't - that was simply a K-5 Limited. I see none of the differences introduced by the K-3.

I think the guy who designed the camera read our posts before he designed it (I'm sure other sites as well). Tried to fulfill his customers wants. Also, we are probably pretty good at predicting where the market is going.
