I am naive about this, but how much of a difference would ISO 50 make?
very useful for both macro with flash and long-exposure landscapes. IMHO, supporting ISO 50 is a key feature of any pro camera.
With any luck they might be able to enable this via a future firmware update!

The difference between having, or not having to find another subject to complain about?
Or being able to take a shot at f/1.2, 1/8000s at mid day at a country based on the equator. You might still have some clipping though so start screaming for ISO32

I'm sorry, but haven't you seen the sun-in-a-frame icon on the 8-way controller? It's for dialing the sun down.

Or eliminating the need for an ND filter to make moving water look silky. Heck. The first roll of film I put through my first Pentax was original Kodachrome, ASA/ISO 10. When the improved Kodachrome at ISO 25 came out it was "high speed," but it lost some of the "character" of the original (according to the critics).

Local dealer already offers it for pre-order: Foto Booms | Pentax K1 body | Productinformatie
Price TBA, though.

At thecamerastore.com they have '36.4 MP' as a search option under Pentax, but if you click on it to filter to only that resolution - no cameras

Cameras

(EDIT: And they have a price category for $1981 - $2500, also empty. Hmm....)

Michael, you don't have ISO50 , you have ISO25, because pixel shift = 4 stacked frames (+time to shift the sensor... I have no idea how long it take to shift the sensor, perhaps someone could take 10 or 20 pixel shifted frame to calculate how long it takes to shift the sensor).

Or without pixel shift, instead of taking one long exposure shot of lets say 20 seconds, taking multiple shorter shots at higher ISO (lets say 10 shots at 2 seconds) and averaging them will give you the same result, as averaging reduces noise just like lower ISO does. Actually this is in some sense preferable to using an ND filter for silky water shots, as averaging multiple shots reduces noise, but ND filters do not.

I do not know how much more inconvenient it is, I have no clue if this type of averaging can be done in-camera. Its a lot easier to program than HDR, but I have not tried to find this function.

Maybe at Ireland it is so bright, but here at Finland, I'll have to bump ISO up to 1600 for that

Even the "old" K5 can do that in camera. It's limited to 9 pictures. The K3 has a much higher limit though, iirc.

Thanks! It used to be goalies mostly but now our junior program has started to churn out pretty promising dmen and forwards too (R. Ristolainen in Buffalo, S. Vatanen in Anaheim, O. Määttä in Pitsburgh and the yet undrafted P. Laine & J. Puljujärvi).

I used to live in Toronto for a couple years so I got to see a couple NHL games...and I was there to see the World Cup of Hockey semis and final in 2004, in person
Love Olli Maatta! Great guy, great player. Okay, back to Pentax.

I'd be happy with ISO 50, but ISO 25 would be the bomb.
Just as a point of fact: I use this feature a lot on my D800, and I find I miss it on my K-3ii.

Jussi Jokinen isn't half bad, either. Wish the Pens could have kept him.
