You can't deal with this in software properly. Information is lost and there is no software in the world who can restore that. There are software to make it more difficult to see the moire pattern, but the details in the image which is destroyed by this moire pattern is lost forever.
If you can't see the moire pattern anymore, and the image doesn't look messed up, then I'd say the software is dealing with it successfully. Yes, some original data is lost, but isn't that the case with any kind of software fix? When you remove a speck in your image due to dust on your sensor with spot removal, is it the case that the software "isn't dealing with it properly"? Original data is destroyed.

Still wonder what the ISO range will be, or if there have been any rumors to what that will be.
Maybe iso80-16000


I hope for iso50 or even 25.

For hi-iso the range will be limited compared to 16megapixel I guess.

Wait- what? First, you remove the AA filter for sharper photos but add blur back using SR? Seems like a dog chasing its tail.
There is a difference. You increase the details by removing the AA-filter. When you get problems by moire, you can add a small sensor movement to reduce ist. When you select the strong option I think you'll be at the level of 24 MPx with an AA-filter.

The interesting thing is, you have the chance to select none, a little bit and more according to your needs, that may be another unqique feature

In which direction is the sensor cleaning piezo working? sideways x and y, e.g parallel to sensor plane or in z-Achsis eg. orthogonal to sensor plane. If it would be in the sensorplain, it may work as the anti-moiree shaker even at 1/8000 shutter speed.

Are people who have the K-5IIs experiencing problems?
Nope, I have not found moiré in one single shot I've taken since I've had my IIs... but on the other hand I do mostly nature/landscape/wildlife photo, not architecture or people in clothing with repeating patterns which may lead themselves to that problem. The gain in sharpness is noticeable on the other hand.

The announced specs on the new K3 do look very interesting, but I'm not sure I'll be an early adopter. I'll probably wait a little as I am still VERY satisfied with my IIs. (And I don't want to be a downer, but I adopted the K5 early and was rewarded with severe sensor stains... so this time I'll wait a little just to be sure the little bugs get worked out).

Translating from the original article,

"There are 27 AF focus points (25 are cross type), centre three are f/2.8 sensitive type."

Also, in regards to smartphone interoperability, an optional "FLUCARD" is required. There's an interesting comment on the original site where one poster speculated the possibility of using the phone's display as "variangle" monitor.
If this is the case, it could be why the camera doesn't have an articulated finder. I wonder exactly how it will work? Will it show in real -time or with a slight delay(I stream music to my car via YouTube and the audio is ahead of the video)?

I'm not sure why I am going to bother except I'm a little baffled by the number of new members with hardly any posts that seem to have joined for no reason except to trash Pentax.

So:

Please explain why I should not be happy. It is not clear. Did you want APS-C and 36mp? Or do you think APS-C and 12mp is better? Please tell us what would not be "ed up!"

QuoteOriginally posted by Hitmanone Quote
what to do the 8.3 frames when at the same time Pentax focus speed is below average versus other cameras of Nikon and Canon.
Do you have proof that the Pentax AF speed on this camera is not as good as similarly priced bodies from Canon & Nikon or are you just spreading anti-Pentax propaganda? Pentax releases a camera that trashes the fps of the competition and you seem to think this is bad news? Please explain what you mean it was not clear.

QuoteOriginally posted by Hitmanone Quote
and APS-C? again?
What do you mean unless this is intended as another FF lament? Why is it bad to release an APS-C camera?

QuoteOriginally posted by Hitmanone Quote
i find no reason to upgrade from my K-5.
Camera has not been released and all you have to look at are a few leaked pictures and a rumored spec sheet that might or might not be true but you find no reason to upgrade? How on earth do you have any idea about this? Or do you have information no one else has?

I'm having a hard time imagining what I could do with a 600mm . I'm the 24-35-50-85-135-200 kind of a man (16-24-35-55-90-135 on the APS-C planet).

the new Fujitsu Milbeaut 7 has maximum image processing speed equivalent to 12fps at 24M pixels. Pentax seems to take a more conservative way by limitting it to only 8.3fps.
No, it's a mechanical limitation, not a matter of processing power. You need a shutter that can operate at that fps and have the long life expected of a top-end model.

Then why is it possible for Canon to produce a camera capable of 12+ fps yet is rated for 400,000 shutter cycles?

Obviously, for the K-3 to be price-competitive, Pentax cannot put this sort of mirror/shutter assembly into the K-3. The EOS-1D X costs $6800 but the K-3 needs to be priced within $1500.

Smart phone connectability?

When I talked to Jim Malcom back in February, one of the things I said I wanted was the ability to use my smart phone as a hot spot (I can wifi tether on it) to upload photos that I like to a webste (Picasa or Flickr) to make sure I had them saved. I do, I admit, always worry about SD card failures, camera theft, lost SD cards, etc.

Also, for my company, that would be good so our inspectors can upload select images in real-time because our reviewers are up to 12 time zones away in some cases (that doesn't mean they aren't working overnights, so real-time uploads would be helpful.)

It should be said I'm not taking any credit. I got the sense that idea had already been brought up. But I am exceedingly glad to see that I might be able to use my smart phone with my camera.
