Three will be in my hands by the end of the year!!!!

Thank you Ricoh for not screwing up the K5 upgrade!!!!

(and now a great big sigh of relief).

I want to cry I am so happy that the K3 is a TOOL and not a TOY.

Looks awesome, except for that illogical 1/180th flash sync.

No language support for Tagalog or Visayan. The K-3 is a piece of junk!

So, in the end they didn't abandon PEF. That's good.

Is it just me, or do they shave off like .1x.1mm of the sensor every generation? We're going the wrong way!

Seems like a nice camera, though. Anyone see a date or price?
