Official specification K20D from Russian Pentax Dealer

PENTAR: PENTAX K20D

It's old K10D with new sensor and LV.:ugh:
It's ALL. Old SAFOX, Old shutter speed.

And new system of antidust - Dust Alert.

Only 3 fps, 12 bit and 9 RAW buffer. Strange.
Maybe it's not final specs.

Same as samsung?

Wasn't there some specs on some norwegian site with info regarding the speed and buffer on the Samsung??

And that russian site, what are the iso-specs??
100/200/400/800/1600, 100-3200 or including 6400??? Something with EV-compensation??

Confused.

russian leak

I don't think these specs are completely correct, but the leak for the K10D I believe came out of Russia. I really hope that the K20D does not have the same AF system. It would be a real detriment to this camera if it did. FPS doesn't really matter, but improving the AF is something Pentax should have put on the top of their priority list, way above live view.

I know 24 hours can be long but these specs look half-baked to me...

See y'all tomorrow....:ugh:

I do not think that this will be the final specs. It looks like a copy of the specs of the K10D with replaced the things the know of the new specs of the K20D.

Just wait for the official news that will come soon!

this is the bit wheremost of us should be looking. Very strange that its exactly the same as K10D, not only that but the buffer for jpegs is again infinate. that would be a bit difficult with the Jpegs rumord to be in the regio of 6mb each.
I dont know. I do think that these are not complete.
A distributer is not infact an official anouncement. So I will wait.

In most cases the JPEG's are between 8.5 and 10 mb each.

Ok so far we know k20d will deliver excellent colour rendition, low noise in high ISOs, higher analysis, better SR, quite operation, robust and ergonomic body etc etc.

Do we know if the AF speed in low light has improved adequately in order to stand equally to the competition?
Does the camera provides AF tracking?
What about the DR of that camera? Is it close to 6MP cameras or equal/worst than the k10D's one?

many thanks in advance

They are not correct...The JPEG's are 50-60 percent larger than the compression used on the K10D. ISO is higher than stated, AF is faster and more accurate...Can't go further as yet.
