PENTAX paid particular attention to the layout of its operation system to improve its handling and ease of operation when shooting distant subjects, such as birds, aircraft or athletes. Its functionality and performance in autofocus shooting has also been upgraded with the addition of new features, including the Focus Preset mode, which instantly shifts the focal point to a pre-registered position; and the AF Cancel mode, which locks the focal point during Continuous AF operation. Since PENTAX’s 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera provides a shake reduction mechanism far more advanced than any previous mechanism, it assures blur-free photography, even when a super-telephoto lens such as this one is mounted on.

Yeah... sort of. Looking forward to full size images to see what the IQ of the DFA150-450 would be on a FF sensor, I guess pretty good, while a bit stretched on a K-3.
I guessed that this teaser site would be updated twice a month, which was about right. That would be the next update will be end of this month and so on...

certainly not taking any risk of demonstrating it - both shots are at ISO800 f/5.6 and only 270mm focal length

Well, this is just a teaser and those samples were taken with preproduction cameras.

To me it looks like the cow is Jersey Heifer

The earmark could be from New Zealand, but no idea where else from is possible. Not from European Union.

I think it could work with continuous AF for moving objects.

What a weird series of teaser updates the last two have been - all about lenses that have already been released [hence no tease], little at all to do with the camera itself.

Did they add new pictures? I don't remember seeing that lock button before. GPS button is gone and the sync port moved up to that area. Headphone port moved up and back, maybe alongside the mic port? GPS button is now on the right I suppose.

Nah. Same control layout as the earlier Paris pix.

Actually the last three as the one before was mostly about the FA Limiteds.

1) New Pentax full camera
2) All K-mount lenses are compatible
3) Crop mode with a choice of three settings
4) Optimize the imaging power of the distinctive FA Limited series
5) D FA 24-70
6) D FA 150-450

Yeah, sorry I meant changed from the k-3, I was really unclear. The lock button is new to me, I must have missed it before.

The marking corresponds to that used in sweden and The Jersey is used in sweden aswell, so I don't understand why you say it can't be from the EU.

I did expect when the FF teaser is combined with 150-450mm, they will demonstrate the AF capability to capture fast moving object. Oh well, we only see cows there. Maybe next week with the DFA 70-200mm.

It depends on what they compare with when they say: "PENTAX’s 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera provides a shake reduction mechanism far more advanced than any previous mechanism".
Is it in any previous camera?, any previous DSLR?, any previous FF DSLR?, any previous Pentax DSLR?, or any previous Pentax FF DSLR? Or something else?
