What I'm seeing looks a bit of a jumble:

Pentax KZ922
$1,069.94
Format: APS-C
CameraResolution: 50MP
Video Resolution: HD 1080
Connectivity: Wifi
Frames Per Second: 8.3 fps continuous shooting

Plus optionally:
Lens Included: 14-24mm

Features look too weird to be true - for instance super high resolution on APS-C, and then high fps to boot? And no 4K video?

Not to mention, I can find no mention of a 50MP APS-C sensor anywhere else.

Wish it would be true but i doubt it. Maybe somebody at Adorama knows about the raffle and is giving a helping hand.

It doesn't feel right - 50MP and 8.3fps?

It could be using a new development of the pixel-shift.

Or it could be made up.
Pre-launch leaks usually appear at nokishita-camera, not on Adorama.

whoa, but prolly a typo. KZ922 - haven't heard Pentax use a name this complicated before unless maybe for the now-gone point and shoots
maybe it's a scheme to get people to look up the Pentax section of their inventory in hopes it can generate sales on the side...

Same thoughts here. Probably just a mistake.

Nobody commented about the supplied "14-24mm" lens indicated in the "Pre-order" link:
- odd focal range
- seems to indicate that the body is not APS-C, and has a much smaller sensor!
- price is same with or without lens!

Very confused and confusing.

50 MP APS-C sensor with 8.3 fps? I think it must be a mistake on the info part.
The new item entry, however, is interesting. Does it mean we will see a new camera from Pentax soon? Next month Photokina, perhaps...

I'm also quite sure it's some mistake.

50MP is realy a lot of pixels, especialy on APSC.
8.3fps looks like K3
i can believe 1080p video.
But 14-24 lens? Pentax does not have something like this even on roadmap. Sure, they can release something new without placing it on roadmap, but that is not focal lengths for KIT lens. Not to mention it's free

Maybe therfe is someone in here, who could try to buy it? It's way to much money for me to test it out, even, if you can return it, but maybe someone have time and could try it and see what will they say?

But on the other hand, 50MPx on APSC could be something different from all other companies showing Pentax is on it's own way, not following others.

Rather impossible - somebody must have had a wet lunch.

They also have another Pentax KZ922 SILVER W LENS @ $7,599.00.

Just search KZ922......
