Sorry to hear that. The D300 ISO 3200 samples are amazing. It was fun coming up with the idea. That just about narrows it down to a new sensor from---? Whatever it is I hope it has the ISO performance of the D300.

BTW I really enjoy the banter you and Richard add to this forum.

Thanks,

ken

Ain't the D300 just using the Sony 12mp CMOS? Pentax will probably follow suit with a K12D of sorts using the same sensor.

That D300 lcd screen is crazy. 900,000+ pixels haha.

Ben

Do you think the Pentax system or the K-mount will be around in the future?

Will Hoya make an honest run with the Pentax system?

I like the orange lenses idea, now that would make Pentax stand out from the crowd. Just like ipod owners liked their white ear buds when noone else had them. Or maybe the waterproof lenses could be yellow, like evrything else waterproof seems to be. Imagine those along the sidelines of a game, people would be queueing up to see them!

Yeah, yellow like the Sports-serie Walkman & co from Sony (they don't make those anymore I think). You just can't fake you did not see them

Hey! I owned one of those back in the day... OK, now I'm just showing what century I was born in

But yeah, I would definitely dig a yellow body+lens combo. Ideal for undercover street photography, if you ask me

So, you signed a NDA that don't allow you to admit you don't know anything?

I doubt that Samsung signed the co-development partnership with Pentax just to stop making K-mont cameras and lenses. I'm fully convinced that Pentax K-mount was the main reason for Samsung to make the deal with Pentax. With backup from Samsung and Hoya, yes the Pentax K-mount system will surely still be around in the future.

And the purpose of a this thread named "Pentax News...Something Interesting..Really!" Is? Hehe, I know sometning you dont... hehe cry and beg me for the answers, but I cant tell ya!... NDA ?!

What is interesting in it when you r not saying anything besides NDA. NDA, NDA, NDA...?!

We all know the speculations, 2 new bodies (probably K20D and K200D), and maybe 60-250 comes out.. Detail's we dont know, and you arent gona say a word... so? The purpose of a thread like this is?

PS. Sorry, so far you've said that it's not Nikon's CMOS, and "Does it has to be a Sony sensor:ugh:"...

WoW, a seven page thread about a camera nobody can disclose information about.

Now what would happen if someone actually had information about the existance of a prototype *istDxyz ?

In reality, when Pentax does introduce the newest rendition of it's well built products, I do hope they can provide dynamic Range that impresses even those using the Fuji S5. Pentax has done a good job with what we can accomplish with Raw, now it is time to make us drool over something different than what we expected.

I don't know anything either but they didn't have to make me sign a NDA for it, they just didn't tell me anything!


(But still I can tell you that I don't know if the future Pentax sensor will be a Cypress 14MP CMOS sensor... or not...)
