Bah that's Sony's crap engine (bad Jpeg, big NR, bad ISO).
It's amazing how people can denounce and criticize something before they've even used it.

Patent for Tokina 16.5-135mm F3.5-5.6 DX is Pentax's patent, it is more sense to offer 16.5-135 instead of 18-125...
I agree, but after reading the review of the 16.5-135 at lenstip.com I don't want it in Pentax line up

I have tried. All low-end middle-end Sony bodies I tried were bad in this respect.
a850/900 are different: I don't like the choice they made but that's another problem.

Take any camera from Sony with a sensor 'x', take another one from Nikon and a third one from Pentax and compare the output of said cameras. Have fun.

Sorry I didn't mean your denouncing, I meant the other guy you responded to who was criticizing the new 16mp sensor.

I actually totally agree with you.

It would be too late to criticise something after one will buy it for a lots of money don't you think? Measure twice, cut once! I would be glad if the new Sony sensor will perform better in the new Pentax camera, but from what I see, I somehow don't believe it will be that much to even catch the FF sensors not to say to be 4 stops better as it was rumored. But as I said lets wait and see and then decide whether is worth it to upgrade or not. For ME (someone else may prefer something different but do understand my requirements too) the criteria for the new camera are clear. It must have a new and very good AF and great high ISO performance.

They will reveal the new DSLR, not EVIL, on 9/9/10 at 1pm Japan time.
Didn't we already pass this time now? Or am I confused with time zones? Any official announcements?

Photo rumors are now talking about Sept 10th (and provide a link to a password protected K-r page: http://www.camera-pentax.jp/k-r )

For that you'll have to wait until the 20th of September. Of course, Pentax keeps the best for the Photokina!

Yeah it's just this thread did accurately predict 1x SLR, 1x Prime and 2xCompacts, So i was hoping their is a definite fact surrounding the K-5.

Technically the K-7 was released well before Photokina last year, and is older than the K-x and is a lower seller, so if anything one would think the K-x would be the better Photokina surprise.

I'm still not convinced of the K-5's existence, but i really hope to be wrong!
