It's just an automatic translation of the German specs I sent the rumors guy

the illustration about weather sealing is also funny to read in German, but the translation makes it even better
I figured it was an automatic translation but I was too lazy to translate the German text myself so I simply pasted the link.

But full HD is still good!
Nice to have, but 50MP to do 1920x1080, or 2MP, HD video seems massive over-kill

But it is cool to have such a big sensor for video. You can create a very close-up effect with that.

Looks cool! But I still don't understand why anyone would ever want "4k video in interval mode" unless the interval is 24 frames per second.. But full HD is still good!
Maybe 645Z could record 4K on such device?

We'd need to know what fps could be done at 4K and if the HDMI implementation could send it.
Also, the chipset limitations as well as sensor limitations kick in here. Which is the culprit for what though....

This MF camera with this specs, looks like winner! WOW!

Even if there is video to ruin pure photography machine, it is really good! It will give run for money to other MF, but also D800 and some other 'big cameras'. My dream camera for now...

If volume lets Pentax get the unit costs low enough on the chipsets and peripheral components what will they do next??

Well, just counting pixels:

From DPR: 8.9 fps in RAW at 6016x4000 pixels.

So in 4K video: 3840x2160 output one could expect 24 fps would be possible.

No idea if it works this way and if PRIME III can keep up.

Don't fully trust those specifications; there are some mistakes/omissions.
The 5440 vertical resolution for the L JPEG could be a leftover from the 645D.

Well yes, suspecting that Nikon was sitting idle with D800 these past two years. Wait till Fotokina to see.
But nevertheless, the Z is excellent and even more versatile than the 645D.

Read the special features at the end. The translation is hilarious regarding the weather seal.
Even better, the Scope of Delivery section specifies:
