The new half-APS-C sensor camera.

I find the pentaprism mechanism fascinating.

Humm, could have a more severe light leak problem than the 5DMIII.

p.s. would you scale the image down just a tad?

K-5 divided by 2 still doesn't actually equal a K-01.

Fascinating photo, thanks for posting it.

How is a cut like that achieved? Laser? Band saw?

True, its old, but still current as somehow the DxOMark score wasn't overtaken by the 5DIII. Ta Sony.
