Who in their right mind would name a camera release 'Jesus'?
At least Gabriel didn't tell Mary to name her immaculately-conceived offspring "K-1".

Wise men all showing up with tripods, SD cards, and low-dispersion filters... spending all night alternating between pictures of barnyard cats and astrophotography of that weird shooting star... Herod trying to chase down specs of all the cameras released in the last year and Virgin Pentax left out and forgotten in the media cold...

Some last minute updates from digicame-info, It sounds to be complete specifications. I indeed saw some wow factors finally...

??????K-1????????????????? - ????info

This time is pricing: 25000JPY (including tax), will announce at Feb 18. And shipping will start at the end of April.

PENTAX K-1 の店頭予想価格は最安値で約250000円(税込)。発表は2月18日。発売予定日は4月下旬。

- 5軸 手ブレ補正「SR II」。シフトぶれ、回転ぶれに対応。シャッター5段分の効果
- 手ブレ補正は流し撮りを自動検知
- 手持ちHDR機能(RAWで保存可能)
- 液晶モニタは3.2インチ103.7万ドット。フレキシブルチルト式(上下44度、左右35度、ウエストレベル対応)

ペンタックスK-1の価格は、ほぼ海外の1999-2299ユーロ(25.5-29.3万円)という噂通りですね。一部の方が心配されていたアストロトレーサーも搭載されているようです。フレキシブルチルトやアシストライト、5軸手ブレ補正など、今回初めて搭載される新機能もかなり多いようですね。

Most concerts i shoot are in difficult light read it this way; its nothing i need during concerts, since i always use more then 1 camera..But for other photographers working in the dark, it will be awesome.
Illuminated SD card slots?

760 sheets of battery life - that's quite a printer!
I'm not really in need of 36x24 but even so I look forward to renting one of these in the summertime! Should be fun with Pentax primes, my old 80-200/3.5 JC Penney zoom and toying with crop factors..

A camera release vs the Savior of the world? I don't think they're comparable or should be..
Well up to this point the K-1 has been a mythical creature; not unlike unicorns and god.

This sounds very interesting..

-> Focusing screen Natural-Bright-Matte III
-> Clarity control, skin color correction function
-> Hand-held HDR function (can be saved in RAW) .. i have never used the HDR function in the K3, but.. does it work in JPG or Raw too??

Regardless of what you believe, it is rather rude and disrespectful to talk so coarsely.

Don't get bent....just a jab at the k-1 transition from mythical to real status. I see now that this is a hyper sensitive issue for you. My apologies. Let's get back to the reality (or hoped reality) of the k-1 features.

It is more being respectful of those around you, even if you disagree with their PoV. Blasphemous jokes should be avoided on a non-religious, photography forum. Nothing about being hypersensitive. You were quite rude, I called you out on it. Apology accepted.

I would agree with this part of the analogy

and it is good to see we are not debating the latter part of the analogy

Happy to see you turned the other cheak. Speaking of which, I hope the K1 is seller with skin tones. This would be a boon for boudoir and model photography!

Cheek? Yes, no personal vengeance. We should all be friendly here.


Does the D800/810 produce natural skin tones? probably similar to what we'll get with the Pentax..

No "cheak" it is a chicken/steak meal (k-1/unicorns) and a play on the religious term. Looks like I am striking out with forum humor.

K-1 may be better than Nikon as the sensor (apparently newer) and Pentax has historically done a good job of pulling the best from any given sensor.
