Interesting. So that we can see the aperture on manual lenses? Nice idea. Reminds me of old ThinkPads...

Agreed.

Overall, it does look great, with a lot of direct control. A couple of thoughts though:
  1. It's different enough from the K-3 to make shooting the two bodies together a bit challenging. No different than shooting the K-3 and K-5 together, which is manageable.
  2. Unfortunate that the focus point selection is still tied to other controls. Not a lot of real estate back there to separate them though.
  3. What's that Sun icon on the bottom of the four-way controller?
  4. Info screen does not suggest that it has been changed for a touch display
I'm not planning to get one right away but this is pretty cool!
As long as I can set it to have to press another button and then up to get to WB or whatever, and have the focus point selection be there otherwise, I am happy.

The video mode placement seems fine too. Accessible enough, yet not too much in the way.

isn't that a peculiar light - good for lens changes in the dark
Hmmm.

Good for attracting moths and other insects into your camera body.

Oh good grief. It might attract our alien Overlords too.

Actually it's vertical and horizontal tilt, and rotate. Those are not the sensor's movement - which is moving in a fixed plane - but the motions the system is able to compensate for.

This is one thing that I've always wondered about the k3, how many axis does it have?

INTERESTINGLY, I wonder if you could do sensor tilts for interesting perspective changes like the existing sensor shift feature in the k3, k50, etc.
Would a sensor tilt have the same effect as a tilt lens? I've been wondering this for a while.

No. I two worlds, tilting sensor doesn't change optical math

But it could put the lower and upper part of the photo out of focus, like the diorama effect for example i guess (front and back focus)

Oh, ok. So the tilt lens puts the focal plane in an angle but tilting the sensor would just move it out of the plane, right?

I thought DPReview had gone completely mirrorless, something about being superstitious , the only reviews they seem to have any time for are for the Fuji and M3/4 crowd. Oh I forgot, they also have a lot of time of the cheaper Leica's and various lens adapters that crop up allowing this brand to be used by that brand etc, etc.

One of these days I must get banned from there.

The last Pentax complete review they did was the K-3. Not the K-s1 not the K-s2 not the K3 II (i've been banned twice now....)

That sounds like a fun goal! I wonder how hard it would be to achieve?

Their last screw up was to take the already ho-hum images from Pentax' teaser site, resize them in a way which obliterated every detail (making them look worse than a webcam), post them on their site and enjoy the fireworks.
After all finally quieted down and the article slipped from the front page, they quietly fixed that mistake.

So they'd better not review, preview or write anything about the K-1, the risk is too great they'll make mistakes again
