The D-BG4 can adapt also 4(?) x AA Lithiums (at 1.5V each) in addition to the 6 x AA rechargeables (NiMH, at 1.2V each)? As far as I can see from those official published specs so far , it is only told that NiMH rechargeables are supported. So, as seen from the above photo, it is really a good news! AA Lithium batteries have two main advantages over NiMH ones: 1. They are much lighter and weight can be saved nearly by half per cell, especially consider only 4 lithium AAs are required instead of 6 NiMHs, obviously it is just a big advantage! And, 2. Those AA Lithiums are much more cold-resistant, that would be a perfect match with the cold-resistant K-7 when the camera is really used under cold conditions.
The same poster has also posted some show girl photos taken with various different lenses and the K-7:-
