I'm sure you will anyway but could you ask about manual video controls? It doesn't seem to be in the press release but maybe they just didn't include it. If not then will we see it in the future?

Does the K-5 have full manual control in 1080p HD video mode ?

If I could chime in: What does 'DC' mean in the lens' name?

The Need-to-know list:

1. turn off DFS - possible. new modes are auto, on, off for NR.
2. AF in video
3. Tethering?
4. Flash sync 1/180 or 1/250 ?
5. SXHC support? - VIA FW upgrade
6. AF tracking
7. RAW Buffer - looks like 15 RAW, but unsure if 12bit or 14bit
8. 12 bit mode?
9. manual Video controls

what else?

Video works at a full 1080p at 30 frames per second.
Pentax K-5 jumps to 16.2 megapixels, better autofocus | Electronista

So what is it 25fps or 30fps ?

10. Speed of AF with camera
11. Speed of the new SDM (and if it's other implementation)

Can you select between 12bit raw and 14bit raw?

It's 25 FPS full HD, 30/25 (selectable) for the other sizes. Let's keep this thread on-topic and continue other k5 discussion here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-news-rumors/114977-pentax-k-5-offi...announced.html

Falk: if you'd like, I can do a homepage article on your reportings (no external links).

don't bother with my question about the Crippled mount; I took a look at the Dpreview Images of the camera and it appears they are still using the "crippled" K-mount. Certainly not a huge issue, but many legacy lens users such as myself would appreciate the ability to use Av mode with our lenses.

It would be nice if you could clear up the FPS/buffer confusion and hit them over the head with a cluebat about no movie controls.
