it could be 20 mm (type 1). In Pentax K-30 it is 17 mm, but the window of metal frame that holds the hot mirror is HxW = 20x26,4 mm. Actually metal frame in K-5II is a bit different, the vertical height of window is bigger, as I observe during direct inspection.

I wondered how Pentax cameras had a short wheel base.
