    K3 replacement?? 🙂

    • Sounds like it.

      It could be a K-3 II replacement, making an obvious reference to the sixtieth anniversary of the original Asahi Pentax (AP) from 1957, the first Japanese SLR with pentaprism (and rapid-wind lever), it being remembered that the AP’s fiftieth anniversary was celebrated in 2007 by the ‘AP 50th Aniv.’ prototype camera based on the K10D.

      Or it could be a reference to the highly successful P30 from the mid-eighties, in which case it would be an entry-to-mid level camera, the equivalent to K500 and K-S1 under a different skin.

    …and the ‘Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens‘ on the Pentax K-Mount D FA lens roadmap, supposed to be the first among the five lenses on this roadmap to be launched, is a 24mm. It will be announced together with Pentax KP and is represented below.

    And it’ll be called the KY-Jl-e; watch for the lube splatter on the shutter, though.
