Rumors of a an upcoming Pentax K-01 mirrorless camera are swirling around the web, and while we're highly skeptical of the current crop of leaked photos, it looks like some type of new camera announcement is forthcoming: Stuff-Review says it's received an invitation to a Pentax product announcement tomorrow, and that it's likely to be a new K-mount camera designed by Marc Newson. The new rumored photos show what appears to be a diminutive interchangeable lens camera with a strikingly thin 40mm f/2.8 lens, and one detail photo shows a possible HDR toggle.
Rumored specs for the K-01 include an APS-C sized mirrorless sensor, the Pentax KAF mount, a 16-megapixel sensor (same as the K-5), full HD video support with external microphone input, a 3-inch LCD, a built-in pop-up flash, and a weight of just 1.2lbs including the battery. It's also speculated to come in three different colors, along with three new lenses (with the 40mm f/2.8 as the K-01's kit lens). Obviously there's a lot of grapevine to climb here, and with CP+ on the horizon, we'll be sure to let you know if the real K-01 stands up.
