All these long lost users appear from the memory hole. What kind of mind Ray does Ricoh send?

too many dials on top. What is that? Dial mania? Just do it like Nikon Does:
For my style of photography, I greatly prefer dials over a menu on the screen.

I am a landscape/still image photographer. I usually shoot with a tripod, and low angle. I use the tilt out screen to prevent needing to get on my belly or knees when shooting low angle. I never use the viewfinder and compose and focus using live view on the back screen. If I have to change ISO or make another adjustment, if there are no available dials to perform the adjustment, I will have to go out of live view, change the ISO, and then go back into live view. It is so much quicker and easier for a person with this technique just to leave the image on the screen, and make the quick ISO (or other) adjustment with a dial.

What did you expect, when all evidence suggests that after so long, we've actually seen the Pentaxian Holy Grail?
And I am one of them

yep, i also dont see a need for Shake Reduction up there on the wheel.
Really could be Super Resolution ... ??
I like having Shake Reduction on a dial.

When shooting on a tripod, and not using pixel shift, I understand that the IQ will be slightly better if one turns the SR off.

So you shouldn't buy a dslr when you are not going to use a viewfinder.

I'd love to see the battery compartment.

I have about 10 K3/K3II batteries that'd I'd just love to use on my new full frame. I don't want to have to buy all new batteries and chargers!!!

Sorry, but with all the wrong rumours that have come from dealers in the past, I cannot trust this.

Why would a manufacturer inform a dealer half a year before release about still secret features, when they know that dealers can't keep their mouth shut anyway

Good comment.

I feel that I still need a DSLR because on occasion I expect that I might be using my Pentax Full Frame for people photography and sporting events (where of course an OVF is needed).

The rep at the show yesterday said that the sensor is 36-magapixal.
I'm OK with only 36MP provided it has great low light abilities and wide dynamic range.
