well maybe that is what this is referring to.

no.4 might just be a gxr module?

then in k mount we would have;

P&S
WG etc (blah i dont care)

MILC
Q,
GXR
K-01

DSLR
entry level (or is this the k-01?)
mid level (k-5n?)
high end (k-3?)
gxr module (or ff - LXD? K-LX?)

MF
645DII

quite a line up...

EDIT:

or maybe they are going to release new film camera? if they say don't sell your old lenses? maybe they will do a limited edition LX anniversary edition?
that would be boring
