So, the ISO seems the most surprise. Hoping it performs really good, as the numbers do not mean anything by themselves.
Now we should wait for the official price I guess.

Yes
So everything comes together isn't it Christopher

In the brochure states the following(translated):

Burst pictures with 7 FPS. This is because a new Processor and faster AutoFocus
New AutoFocus module SAFOX IX+ for better focussing(but in the specsheet states SAFON VIII+)

For video mode:

Capturing Full-HD movies for max 25 minutes or 4 GB limit.
There is a connection for a external Stereo mic

Correction for the exposure for video
Digital preview and eletronic meter(for if the picture/move is straight, don't know the right English word for it )

One source gave me 50-25,600 so well it was technically correct lol. But 51,200 is a big shock.

7-8fps range was that I was told to, so that was close.

I was given 18 focus points, but that turned out to be wrong so lol, but another one has passed me on that the new AF is a MAJOR improvement over the K-7 and a whole new module.

Im really disappointed with the lack of dual SD and the 1/80 sync speed but oh well.

Good. If the new 18-135 performs even on par by 18-55 it would be a nice walkaround WR lens. As I asked at DPR do you know anything about more lenses/flashes too?

Nope till now not
I sure hope there will be some new lenses, and hopefully new flashes, but honestly I don't know.
