If I wasn't so lazy, I would search your history of posts to see how you responded to criticism about forced DFS. It seems to me that many of you certainly don't care about this issue... so their may be some hypocrisy going on here. No I don't care about it, I have neither complained about it or praised it, I haven't said it's not required either.

>>Rain = water on lens = distortion.

Well technically I am not wrong. I was not referring to keeping the water off the lens. How does that equate with your formula above?

I'd like to see how you would prevent rain from getting on a shorter focal length lens (say 16mm); good luck with that. I don't use that length, ever. So your formula should be Rain might= water on lens (or whatever the symbol for might equal is). I use a waterproof bag with a hole cut in it for the lens and some rolled vinyl over the lens hood which effectively extends the hood, which of course is okay with a smaller than full-frame sensor.

And... how the heck does one multi-quote? I click the button but whether it is + or - makes no difference when I reply. You click the + on all the ones you want to quote, but then on the last one you have to click the "Quote" button, not the + button.

My 7-year old daughter has a Barbie Cam
Its actually a functioning digital camera with a 0.3 MP sensor and f/2.8 fixed focus lens (35mm equivalent, I think), pink colour with "Barbie" on the front.

She just "had" to have a camerat for her birthday......she's actually picked up some composition skills now..starting 'em young on photography...

This isn't a K-5 bashing comment really, but its not a praise so I'll place it here.

It appears that Sony's implementation of the 16.2MP sensor (used in the A55, also with Sony's variant of SR) is having problems with heat buildup while recording video. IIRC, the videos are limited to 10 minutes each to address the heat buildup issue while using SR.

Anyone hear if this issue affects Pentax's SR implementation during video?

Think it might be a bit premature to bash something before you've even seen it?

Just wondering.

The d5000 only managed 5 min, so 10 min is good

so it needs to be water cooled? or using hydrogen fuel cells to power a cooling system? Of course it also lacks the corresponding much needed internal moisture extraction system to avoid the condensation which will happen with every internal cooling system.

Shame on HoyaTax for leaving out that consideration...we need fuel cell cooling in the K-5...and they dare call it an advanced body without such a system...and really what could go wrong it they used potentially explosive LiPoly batteries side by side with compressed hydrogen fuel cells!!

With SR it is 9 minutes without SR it is 29 or 30 minutes.

So as the results start to roll in, surprise surprise - the K-5 has a killer value proposition-feature after all: Image quality!

Disappointing Sync Speed, AF points, etc., aside, this is kind of an ironic reminder of what's really important. It's too expensive right now, but a k-5 purchase is definitely in the plans.
