I synchronized the shutter of my Nikon D4 and K5IIs to fire at the same time. After that, it was a simple matter to use the D4 to fire a flash at a white reflector and see how badly the shutter curtains occluded the sensor on the K5IIs at 1/500th shutter speed.

I would rather have a D4 with its faster 1/250th sync speed and fast Nikkor telephoto glass than to waste time cropping out black bars.
Thanks, so would I, but I don't have a D4, so I wish that Pentax would just allow us to override the limit like everbody else does in those cases where it would help.

Fair call. Make it a menu option.
