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! Now I can actually start using the theory and do some silky water shots myself with my near-antique K-5!

I can't order until August (I bought too many lenses) but if it starts at $1,799 I bet it will still be there by the time I order n

925g is not the lightest of the 3624 body options - but it surely could be worse.
Yes I said surely!
And it's the lightest durable body, no doubt!

That is even better for me. I have 2500 USD in my FF fund. I may have money left over.

What explains mainly the weight differences (with lighter Canikons) :
- IBIS approx. 50g
- AF body engine approx 20g
- chassis and envelop components approx 60g
- GPS sensor and electronics approx 20g

Yep, but REALLY all weather...not like "feel like a cheap toy" canikons (yeap, even the D810). Theres a video in FStoppers where they try to make the "afghanian test" in a canon and they completly fail.

I am naive about this, but how much of a difference would ISO 50 make?
Some people want the option of being able to take photos while facing an explosion.
