About time! The 24th is already 11 hours old here!

AF assist still by the bloody built-in flash - AAAUUUGGGHHH - don't they read these fora?

Ooooh - 4 stop SR max.

Aren't those drive modes WORSE than the K10D - issn't that unlimited jpegs? Wow, that whole Drive Modes section needs a bit of digestion! A BIG negative to 5fps anyway.Grrrr.

So I hereby withdraw this post and go to read a 2500 word essay.

NOT...

being technically inclined, I have a question-

has the focus system been upgraded, and if so, how?

Thanks

Read codiac's essay. It has not been upgraded, but there is a plethora of other improvements.

Apparently, the K20D comes with an extra focusing screen.

Well a bit disappointing is the fps count and the AF unit, it is just the same..
And also no extra buttons on the camera for direct access for example WB and ISO.

It is a pity there is not ISO 50 or even is 25.
And a 2.7" inch LCD...not as big and high reso like the A700 and the D300.

But it seems a nice upgrade of the K10D, it should be named K10D Super and not K20D in my opinion

Read that and you might want to reconsider.

So a brand new, highly advanced sensor does nothing for you?
That alone warrants a model number change IMO.
