Hi Ben,

So have you got your New Toy already?

It's Monday afternoon now, at least it is over here in Singapore

Can't wait to know what you think about the new cam

Cheers!
Hi Frank,

It's always a pleasure to see that signature pic of yours!

Cracks me up every time!

For your information, it was 6:29 am in France when you posted your message... I could almost hear Ben snoring....

Well, 0.39 could be the last pre-1.0 firmware (same as 1.0 to be)... They will only call it 1.0 when it's really for sale. Don't expect the next generation cameras to be in the store immediately after the lifting of the embargo? Soon perhaps, but not immediate... Pentax has kept things amazingly quiet to avoid the long time between first announcements the final availability they had with the K10D. I expect they will follow a schedule similar to the other brands now... Sth like a month or two at most?

Just guessing...

I think you need to change your avatar to something a little more smug than that!!!
Look at mine, i still look tired of waiting and in dispair.
Apart from the Toy you refer to, do you have any news of lenses to be anounced with the camera.

less CA?

Hey Ben,

Can you tell if the "new toy" produces less CA, such as from the DA* 16-50 at 16mm, f2.8?

Sounds pretty good...are both toys up to the same high iso performance, stealth shutter or just the bigger toy?. Rumour has it a firmware is supposed to be released for the K10 after the launch, hoping it may improve the K10 iso performance if the k200 is supposed to have the same sensor.

You mean the shutter noise right... ?

High ISO is Canon territory and I think it is written somewhere in the 10 commandements that : "Thou shall not claim to have better noise characteristics than Canon" ... or so I remember...
