...and does a 50 Mp APS-C sensor even exist?
Sure, it's on the soon to be announced Pentax KZ-922! You should know that, shouldn't you ?

I just got word that this was an old SKU being tested, and therefore not indicative of anything. Looks like it has been removed now.
the cover-up begins

Probably, but to me it seems like a data entry error. 8.3 fps is from the K-3, and does a 50 Mp APS-C sensor even exist?
Well, Canon did create that 120 MP APS-H sensor a while ago...who knows?

I am puzzled, they didnt mention the secret alliance with Kodak. RIcoh developed an interchangeable back modul. One version is digital, you pop that off and put on a 35mm film modul for the new Kodak slide film.

Sigh. That's a great sadness inducing data point.

If it were an old SKU why would they pick Pentax and not some obscure manufacturer. I would think that a retailer would retire older SKUs and not use them to test with, it seems to me that they would have a series or SKU sequences to test with which would not relate so obviously to a current supplier of products to them. It doesn't make sense to do what they have done unless they were testing the SKU for a new Pentax camera, the gibberish about the FPS and sensor and price are just that, but I think there is something else going on.

Time will tell.

The NDA force has been violated! Lord Ricoh will strike down those fools that have messed with the NDA!

Maybe Adorama won't get a supply of K-3II replacements when they are finally released? Haha!

That's Adam's way to pretend he is not aware of anything RI are doing.. (under NDA).

This way they can run their system tests and not worry about anyone noticing or trying to buy the product.

This is much more likely than the KZ-922 NOT being real!
