5: One of those

6: They said 2000 Euro..I guess it doesn't contains any taxes (different countries, different taxes)


Im speaking in general now, since so many people ask me stuff. Im an ambassador yes, but my contract/work range, is towards pros and the pro marked. Which will be much easier now as FF finally arrives. I write stuff, share some stuff now and then here, cause i want too..not because they expect me too.

With that said, i also hope you understand that i dont know everything, haven't asked them, or haven't always the time to be the guy with all the answers etc. Im here cause i think PF is a nice place with nice people..So I'm here cause i want to, not because i have to be. So dont get angry with me for not always be able to help or answer
@5: nice answer

@6: This one is kinda - you mean 2k is the price without ANY taxes? So its possible the price will be more like 2.5k?

@Your posts here: I can only speak for myself: I really appreciate your appearance here and the time you spend posting and answering our questions (as far as you like and are allowed to ). Please continue with it - its nice to have some real information between all the guesstimations and wishes

With other words, price is still unknown. It will be somewhere between 2000-2500.
If it is 2k I will most probably be an early adopter , if it is 2.5k its above my personal limit.

Ricoh only know what they set as price. Every country has their own taxes, so impossible to know 100% for everyone before its out

That's wrong Ricoh set the recommended retail price "MSRP" (including VAT in EU, not in the US) and the price to the retailer. I suspect the price @btnapa saw was the price to the retailer and ~2000 the MSRP for EU.

Interesting comparison from the infamous RiceHigh.

I guess you're correct. This is not my table

That's what we would expect from Pentax indeed. However, the image RH links to uses last year's 3D-printed mock-up as a base for comparison, and not the latest prototype. So perhaps it's not quite accurate...

AF ?
"damn, the missile could not keep its moving target and crashed at 2000 miles from the planned location !"

Ad 1: AF: every new Pentax camera has faster AF than the previous one. However it is still a little bit behind the competition, so it remains to be seen whether the AF matches that of D750/D810/5Ds etc. I would be very surprised if it did.
Ad 2: Pixel shift: I guess a 36 MPx camera really doesnt need more MPx, however since this technology is already used in K-3 II it is almost certain it will be in flagship model too.
Ad 3: I doubt it, since it is going to be a rebadged Tamron they wont do anything with optical formula (lens elements and their shapes - the shape of the front element prevents usage of filters).
Ad 4: This is the crucial question: it is obvious that standard zoom lenses like 15-30, 24-70, 28-105 have priority, however modern primes are desperately needed. E.g. there is nothing wider than the 31mm Limited, so some 18, 20 or 22mm primes are necessary. Likewise primes longer than 100mm, a fast portrait prime like 85mm/1,4 etc. So a lot of work ahead.
Ad 5: Every source hints at 36 MPx, however I would appreciate 24 Mpx or even less (something like the D5 sensor: only 20 MPx, but enormous DR and high ISO performance). Anyhow I understand the marketing importance of high MPx sensor. But hope there will be a lower-specced FF with less MPx in the future (K-2 maybe).
I have no idea about most of those things. I would just say with regard to auto focus capability, it is important (a) to separate auto focus tracking from auto focus. Pentax cameras are actually really good at auto focus and they have improved with regard to tracking, but still lag behind the competition. (b) lens contribution to auto focus capability. Odds are that the K-1 will focus really well with the newest lenses (the 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, 150-450), but won't do as well with older lenses like the FA limiteds or the DA *55. There is only so much that the body is able to do when dealing with slower technology like original SDM motors or older tech like screw driven lenses. But it is unlikely that you can mount an older F or FA lens on the camera and expect it to measure up to top of the line Canon/Nikon cameras.
