What Time/Country is Announcement !

Is the announcement at 12 noon Tokyo time, or is it German time ?

Have to set my clock, get popcorn/peanuts ready, buy a good bottle of vodka, call into work tomorrow 'sick", and wait ;-)

That would be nice. Adam has 10am Eastern Standard Time listed as when the announcement should show up here, which is still three hours off. So it may be a little while longer yet.

It says "Schnellere Bildfolge von 7 B/sec (K-7:5,2 B/sec)," comparing the K-5 with 7 fps to the K-7 with 5.2 fps. I don't read german that well but are you sure you read it right?

That's what it says in the text. The spec sheet says:

QuoteQuote:
Auslösearten Einzelbildaufnahme, Serienaufnahme (5,2 Bilder/s) bis zu 40 Bilder; (JPEG), 15 Bilder (RAW) bei Rauschunterdrückung AUS, Selbstauslöser, Dauerlauf (high, low), Automatik, Fernbedienung

Yeah that would be the K-7's specs

The K-5's buffer allows for 22 photos at 7fps in jpg/16.3Mp. I heard that somewhere.

Adam,

The count-down clock on my screen says the announcement is 2.5 hrs. away. Shouldn't that be 1.5?
