For sure not, that messes with metering.

Can't wait! Not going to buy K-1 though some features will probably go to K-3ii successor. I hope :-)

are you aware that there are people on this forum who will take your numbers as a hidden message and are perfectly capable to create a rumor of a new camera from it?
It's code. The next Pentax, after the K-1, will be a FF mirrorless. 30 fps and 41 AF points.

Cool. I haven't seen them since '77 or '78 in Germany. And Guess who the opening act was: Scorps man.

I have a video for Scorpions, too <ducks>

P.S. If the mods are unhappy with the offtopic, give a hint and I'll stop. Just trying to ease the waiting

I can make it. I can make it. I can make it. I can make it.

Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. Puff-puff-puff

I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

Where is my train of thought going?

What seems to be crucial to a lot of guys is the question how af-points will be located in the viewfinder. That's really bothering people (me too) since there are only 33 which could mean that they are placed more or less in the center of the VF.
Any relief as far as this issue is concerned?

I won't tell how the VF is, but it will have a neat feature i rate as one of the jaw droppers
Since KatzEye stopped making focusing screens, and I always relied on them to make me one with a personalised grid layout, no longer having my own "perfect" viewfinder composition aids is one of the reasons I might stick with my K-3II for some time to come.

Unless this VF feature would enable custom grids being "projected" onto the screen?

Kenspo, since we are so close to announcement, and many specs have already been leaked, are you now able to confirm or deny the ability to set a first curtain electronic shutter on K-1? Thought I'd ask one more time :-)

Cheers,
Ross

Kenspo. Did the Japanese give you some sort of mental torture course, designed by the yakuza before hiring you?

Maybe the K1 will provide autofocus capability to manual focus lenses, as in the 1.7x teleconverter/AF adapter and a split focusing screen.

Perhaps Pentax will offer a variety of screens for the K1 akin to what was available for the LX (split image with collar, microprism center, grid, clear, etc). Speculation, hopes, speculation. I'm starting to think it's more fun not knowing. That way we can imagine a camera that has all the features each of us wants.
