It's not a shame to use a tripod. Actually most landscape photographers use them.
I never said it was a shame to use a tripod, I use them myself especially in the studio. I was pointing out that it was pretty much impossible to use pixel-shift without a tripod.

Depending on how you read these specs, those days may be over. But I think we should wait until the official release for that.

We'll know soon enough, for sure. Maybe this is the jaw-dropping advancement no other dSLR has that kenspo keeps talking about

Sidebar I'm pretty surprised there are only four or five people posting. One EU, one Aus. One or two NA.
What, Finland isn't considered an EU country?

Just kidding

Yes. But it's optional [High/Low/Off].

Seems kind of weird, except for the control button illumination.
Lens mount lights might double as a ring light for body cap pinhole photography. I think we may have found that jaw-dropping feature

I got those specs from at least 5 different sources, I'm stuffed with it and don't feel like reacting before knowing more. I was expecting the 15-30 to be a bit less pricey so I have to fight against myself to respect my initial budget and not to buy it.

K-5II had that already.
It didnt have -3EV AF on 33 points. 1-3 as far as I remember

EDIT: maybe K-5II did have -3EV on all points...I thought it was just the center

What other exciting new features did they copy off the ground breaking ks-1? Typing this on my illuminated keyboard, I refuse to go back. Illuminated buttons although not necessary is a super cool feature! I mean, couple weeks in you should be able to use it without having to look at the buttons but still. Super excited about the pixel shift stuff too. I reaaaally wanna play with that. The results are simply above every other bayer sensor out there. Getting a GRGB reading for every pixel does more then just combining rando' frames imo!

I bet they performed better after that.

At least it wasn't a paternity suit, I know one photographer who had an excellent solid metal tripod but he had an affair with a carbon fiber tripod....that got really messy, I'll put it this way: It was the last time that tripod spread its legs for anyone.

Ok so the ISO range is 100-204K in standard (leaves room for expanded perhaps?)
APSC output is 15Mp (more than usable)
Viewfinder overlay!!! - AF Points, Grid Display, Electronic Level, AF Frame, Spot Metering Frame and Crop - This is a biggie for an OVF I think, One of the Jaw drops?
Star Stream in the Shot mode selection? - Using the Astro thingy
Wireless lan supports G/N, 11 channels, should be nippy enough

This is one seriously sorted camera for the typical Pentaxian hankering for FF. Jun Hirakawa gave me a like on FB for saying that the first lens I would mount is the FA43/1.9 and I would do the Singles in Challenge for a month - I'm still in shock.

Tell him to watch out for carbon fiber shavings...

yes, for the love of god let there be an expanded low ISO 32/50/64/76/80 setting.

I havn´t read the spec-sheets, I wait for those a few more hours to read them from Ricoh, but is this feature mentioned? And does this one mean "live bulb" or is it just a nice name for "bulb"?
