Falk, thank you very much for doing this.

Could you do all of us here a big favor:

1. {answered}

2. can you take a shot with both Lens Corrections settings on and see if it processes any faster?

3. can we control when to light up the top LCD, and not have it light up automatically after every reading.
thnx.

All my photos are geotagged (except where privacy is concerned). The location should show you the Photokina exhibition area.

Unlike D7000, the K-5 doesn't support a logger though. Not a problem for me because I prefer the logger to sit in my photo bag to be synched when I read the SD card..
I never was aware a device to geotag shots outside the camera even existed. I did a fast google and they are interesting and, as a rule, not too expensive I noticed $40 price range but don't want to derail the thread...so are you still using your XAiOX setup?

If I were mobile that sure would be a nice feature to have...and it's, for a change, inexpensive.

A bit off-topic but I'm also using a separate GPS logger, and I'm wondering what kind of work flow you're using to geotag them? I'm using the free GPicSync, it works well but it's quite slow and not integrated into LR.
maybe time for a thread on it as all the threads I found are a couple years old now...I know I would find it interesting.

I use GeoSetter. It writes the data directly into the RAWs and JPGs. Correct, not integrated into LR, but its just one more step when importing.

Hi Falk, I asked some general usability questions about the K-5
I saw your questions. But I need to try it out and the next chance is Friday only.

Is there really no word from Pentax about any new lenses, especially in the range of 400/f4 or even a 500mm ?
No. But I will ask specifically for a lens above 300mm now.


BTW, I updated the raw file post above to include a link to the original raw file (30MB though).

Falk:

Nothing new from Pentax at the show apart from what's been announced already:

Two Optios, the DA L 35mm, DA 18-135mm, K-5, and K-r, right?

Congrats on getting this thread to be #4 on Google! If you'd like a homepage post about any news you might have, just PM me the text you'd like posted. Thanks for the info!

I uploaded an image in full size, developped from a RAW file.
Thanks a lot for posting! It's very hard to judge by one photo only, but despite some noise in there it does actually seem like it could match or beat ISO 800 on my K10D. If that's the case, it will be hard to resist CBA - a 3 stop advantage or more would really be awesome. It would also mean that ISO 12800 could be quite usable - but I'm not sure what the ISO 51k is for yet.

This is a little OT but I know you have some interest in the Foveon tech, have you had a chance to go over to Sigma's booth and check out their new camera?

Falk,
Thank you very much for the early prototype image - looks really good for 6400ISO, but will wait for more detailed comparison shots before drawing conclusions.

I do authorized promo shots and dress rehearsal shots for a local playhouse organization, they will not permit flash or any lightening of the theatre for photography purposes. For intentionally dark theatre scenes, i now get by wtih my K20 by using Topaz 5 or LR3 for 3200/6400 shooting. I will very likely get either the Kr or K5 for this purpose as it would greatly reduce work that i am now doing for high ISO shots.

So far, i think the new models are a success, better ISO, better AF, the rest of the details are less important to me.

So you don't have to take your lens cap off to capture an image. :P

Thanks for all of your work, Falk!

I suspect that if the K5 had been announced before the D7000 price was known, it wouldn't have had ISO 51.2K. Marketing added it at the last minute so the spec sheet would look more competitive (to the clueless), thus the official video announcing a max 12.8K with that classy popup correction, and the lower figure appearing in many of the press sheets.

i'm more interested in the iso 80 than the 51k - shame wouldn't go down to 50 though - regardless suprised more not been said on that - this not the first aps-c camera to have iso below 100?

That is what I suspected myself, my concern is now the 1600 bulb limit. That may likely be the deal breaker for me... That and forced NR

Was this manually exposed? If so, what were you metering for? I'm trying to determine whether this was or wasn't overexposed, as that can affect results, either positively or negatively.
