Any full frame camera should definitely not get a crippled mount.

I must say that with K-5 I got nearly all I need. Maybe, I would like to have just a thing more: in live view, I would like the camera to be able to shoot directly after contrast focusing, instead of let the mirror go down, go up and THEN take the shot.
It doesn't do that.
What you hear is the shutter rewind after it opened for LV and if you don't want a jello effect, it must do that.

Thank you very much. I don't know what fooled me, because the fist time I tried it I kept the eye in the optical viewfinder and saw for an instant the light before the shot... probably I had somehow inadvertitely left phase detection AF on, it's the only way I explain to myslef how coud have been possibly...
...anyway, thanks again, now I can't find any weakness in the K-5 for my way of shooting.

It is interesting to see how varied everyone's "wants" are.

I am surprised that the open source OS scored as high as it did.

Improved SR is not on the list and I would have put that high on my wish list.

I am surprised dual memory cards did not score higher. Maybe they will design the next camera and grip to include an extra memory card slot in the grip. The thought of losing all my images from an event to a corrupt memory card is pretty scary.

I would also like to see an improved SDM system.

I think Pentax should have followed Olympus when it came to zoom lens development and produced the 16-50 and 50-135 as F/2.0 lenses.

The DC motor of the 18-135 should be that.

That is the rumor. If we see Pentax update their current lenses with the new DC motor we will know for sure.

What do I really want?
I want someone to put two in the chest and one in the head to all the Nikon trolls that have suddenly invaded this forum.
Is this really to much to ask?

Since, I like to check facts, I had a look at B&H
Telephoto EF 400mm f/4.0 DO sell at around 5700$
Telephoto EF 400mm f/2.8L IS sells at around 7100$
Telephoto EF 400mm f/5.6L USM sells at around 1200$

Just sayin'.

Oh that's perfectly reasonable .

I think 2500 dollars is the most, at any given moment, that I will have invested in photography. You can do a lot with half of a 400 f2.8 .
