Could this be the new DA* 400mm f4 or f5.6?
Pentax needs some long glass in it's army! Is this it. The pic looks like it was taken on one of the south island lakes in New Zealand.
Could NZ be Pentax \ Hoya's new AREA 51 :lol:

This has been posted before on pentaxforums and has been decided it is a fake. If you look closely, the FL on the lens says 300mm.

Looks huge b/c the K-7 is so small.

That is obviously fake. The direction of light on the guys shoulder appears to be coming from the top right corner. Yet the camera and lens is somehow illuminated from the left, with no trace of the light from the right.

That light could probably be explained by a fill-in flash.

I don't know whether it is a fake or not but it could easily be one. After all.... since we don't see the lens mount can we be sure the lens is actually fixed to the body?

You can press any weird lens and body together and make a photograph.... if you want to start a rumour.

No, it's very unlikely. The way the camera is lit suggests a softbox, a softbox that can over power direct sunlight so that it leaves no trace on the camera... that's one crazy flash :D.
