Thanks for the photoes, Ben!
They really impressed me! I was wandering is 14.6 MP would be a little too much for ACP-S sensor, but from these images I see that now Pentax has perhaps THE best sensor of this size in the world!

Pre Production Issue

The camera I was given isn't near the final firmware that will come out at the beginning of March. I have sent my critiques to Pentax France who forwarded them to Pentax, Japan.

Thanks for the first shots Ben. There is some excellent detail in those shots. Everyone should realize that this is a preproduction model that you've been testing. Guess you can't make em all happy!!

Ben...

As you are a fashion photographer, PLEASE tell me you have a couple shots of models. Love to see a couple to see how the K20D does on skin.

More samples here, and if these photos have not been post processed, the image quality at higher ISO's is a huge leap for this new Pentax, and opens up a lot of creative posssibilities...

I think....

RAW please

Ben,

Would you mind to publish eventually a couple of DNG or PEF files from the new toy? The one at iso200 would be great ...

Thanks!

Um, and we'll need to see a lot of skin to make proper judgment.

I didn't do any Fashion stuff at all. Had the camera for about five days.
