So this is the first known leaked Pentax digital fullframe shot? Pentax FF + FA77, ISO 25,600, 1/500s f/11.
I saw this on Google+
If it is real it is mighty impressive for ISO 25600. Me wants it, precious!

so it supposed to b taken at EV :
iso 100, 1/500, f11 = EV 16
iso 25600, 1/500, f11 = EV 8, right ?

So it supposed to be taken during the night with street light or something like that ? I don't buy it

Edit : and on the body car, with reflectance, we can assume the day was with heavy overcast, so around EV 12 ... hum hum ...

Well, it's entirely possible. I have just taken a shot on my K-5 at ISO 25,600, 1/500s and F11, indoors (our living room is definitely not bright). And the picture on the back LCD looked correctly exposed.

but it was taken outdoor, and according to what is see in reflectance, the sky was heavy overcasted. For me there should be overexposure with such settings.

Anyway, we'll soon see if it's true

Well, Mike Svitek was kind enough to get back to me on Google Plus. I don't know more than that the prototype has a max 1/8000s shutter speed and that it's the child of the Nikon D600 and Sony A99 injected with steroids

I guess those prototypes are a bit awkwardly shaped (prism housing) to keep the final design secret until launch.

I guess the guy I found using Google wasn't him.. I found Mike Svitek on twitter and he says he is testing the k-3

Mike Svitek:


Says sensor is same as D600... FF
He also refers to, somewhere along the line, the K5 III and K5 IIIs. That is an interesting thought. The K5 body and general form and feature set is very nice, at $1100 ish price range. A new version every year with incremental changes and improvements would be a great strategy for Pentax. The K3 sounds like a higher end something or other.

I have no idea if he is genuine.

When the actual announcement comes out later this year (and it won't be a FF announcement, or even a pentax announcement for that matter; think very very opposite...) pretty much everyone on this forum is going to feel gut punched. I'm hoping to pick up some cheap pentax stuff in the ensuing mass firesale. But then again that's just me; I still like to buy and use bronica and contax stuff. Let's just say some Ricoh folks in Japan can't hold their liquor.

Can you please upload the picture to somewhere else? My virusscanner is warning me for Penta-club.ru and I'm not seeing the picture.

Have you checked the "website", actually a freebie page, to which Mike Svitek references himself on Twitter? It's svitekphotos's Instacanv.as Gallery - I mean, it doesn't suggest an obvious candidacy for testing a high-end FF prototype under an NDA (which he doesn't seem to be keeping).

On the other hand there is a Milan Svitek - not Mike - who is also a photographer with a site here: The 35mm Studio: Photography by Milan Svitek. Maybe folks are getting this Mike and Milan mixed up which could be complicated by Mike being a bit mixed up about whether he is Mike or Milan, or maybe Milan is also known as Mike and sometimes mixes up Mike and Milan which would be understandable since Mike probably mixes them up anyway and we know that Milan and Mike can be easily mixed up just by looking through the posts on this thread. Are you a bit mixed up about Mike and Milan? Well, just imagine what it must be like for the poor manager of Pentax's beta-testing programme. He's likely in Tokyo and doesn't speak much English.

And there is more than one Mike Svitek about, just Google. A Mike Svitek has this image on his FB page:



Yup, that looks more like it. Definitely a Pentax beta-tester there. Tokyo has chosen well ...

Happy hunting!

He said that K-3 is in body close to K20D.
