Nope there's a geometrical disconnect between the body and lens. If the body is real they've pasted a different lens on it.

I call fake, that lens is definitely tilted downwards.

AF-S is single focusing, that is, focus, lock and shoot. AF-C is continuous focusing, the camera keeps focusing as it or the subject moves.

Rubbing my eyes by all the nega-comments about a camera which for all intent and purposes does not even exists yet?!

I don't know the authenticity of this picture, but looking at my K5 from the same angle, and apart from the bump and switches - it looks exactly the same? Is the K5 'ugly'?

Pentax users, gotta love-em! It's either 'I love these cameras lets get on and use these tools' or it's 'this just isn't good enough where are we going'

I agree. It's possible this is on the side of an image, perhaps a line of K3's in different colours. Also think about the amount of work to photograph a separate lens at the right angle to paste exactly on a camera body photographed at an awkward angle. Also matching the shading, noise, grain etc.

Who'd bother!

I agree with you.

It looks fake to me. The lens does look tilted and the contrast changes at the same point.
That's not to say it isn't an accurate representation of the K-3, if such a thing exists.
I would like some sort of dedicated focus switch. I use select focus almost exclusively, and having to share the toggle switch is infuriating when I want to change some setting.
I would also like an external monitor/fast tethering facility. I've needed this since the K10D days.

Btw this picture is almost certainly photoshopped. the lens isn't perpendicular to the body and thus the sensor, it's tilting downwards

I'm not convinced. A quick snap of my K-5, with the non-HD equivalent lens, in a similar take looks about the same. I think the K-3 is tilted down a bit as it looks like the back might be sitting on its strap which I have tried to replicate:




I think its also interesting to see the differences in the body shape, particularly the extra thickness or extension to the front of the flash housing, behind the Pentax logo, which I had not noticed before.

LOL.


Cheers for the pic Glyn. I take back my photoshopped claim for now

Compared to Glyn's it looks like a "grey" import.

Does anyone know of the best software for producing faked images of not-yet released cameras? I'm particularly interested in the 'lens droop / tilt' functions - or can you just do it all in Lightroom with one click
