Interesting to see that Samsung's follow up to the NX10 (the NX100) is looking like a flat rangefinder style body akin to the GF1 and PENs.

Pentex's supposed entrant is also a rangefinder style body, but with an articulating screen. Ever so slightly thicker than the GF1, so this looks doable for Panasonic to do as well! I'll keep my fingers articulated, err... crossed.

I was real excited about this until I looked at the pictures. I wish they would have incorporated a EVF...
I am quite sure that photo has been around for awhile, and is one wishful Pentax users interpretation via photoshop.

Either way, photokina will be interesting this year!

I am thinking Pentax is going to do a similar trick as they did with the dslr, samsung chip Pentax design but the same mount. You remember GX20 and K20D :D. Pentax has no extra funds to develop a new mount plus a chip. So 2 supposition either it will have a samsung mount like it was in the past or it will have a NEX mount knowing that mostly all new models are with sony sensors.

Yeah, that is why I put "TBC" behind my link...

The real problem with all this is that it does increase camera options, but does nothing for lens options. With all these different mounts, Tamron and Sigma will be less likely to choose one EVIL mount to make lenses for.

Yeah, you are totally right and on top of that the prices of those lenses won't drop...
