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.

Just remember, what i say is making my jaw drop, doesn't mean it will give you guys the same effect. But I'm shure you will agree, that Pentax like to do stuff their own way

5 stop stabilization is good enough. The price is also very competitive comparing to Canon/Nikon/Sony...

I found 3 that made me go "Sweeeeeeeeeet!!!!"
- LCD overlay in the viewfinder - check
- concave secondary mirror to enlarge coverage of AF points - check
- improved usability of Pixel Shift Resolution - check.
- LED assistance to mounting a lens in the dark - check

That makes 4

It's pretty common, so not a jaw dropper.

It is possible, but judging by focusing screen marks not that effective this time.

Not possible with a slow sensor.

Nice, but still nothing to make my jaw drop...

Are you certain?

The technical solution is just a supposition; same effect can be achieved by redesigned optics. Perhaps to an even greater extent than the second image.

Any feature or function I want is potentially Jaw dropping.
Any feature or function I have no use for is boring however clever.

i,e in-built GPS, Pixel Shift boring
virtual AA filter impressive
unable to disable horizontal SR whilst Panning ludicrous when everyone else has gone auto switch of in direction of pan and even the 3rd parties offer at least on axis off (Sigma Mode 2)

Some one at Pentax needs to prioitize function/feature based on applicability to basic photography Vs gimmick or limited use
