#5 EVF... thats all I want to say... EVF...
Yes! Yes!!

Several times this past year I've had to hand-hold my K-30 while using LV; these were times when the sensor could get me an image out of the darkness, but the OVF couldn't give me enough light to frame the image. The K-70's higher usable ISO would make much more sense with an EVF that would enable me to see what the camera is seeing.

Quoting Eddie1960: "<snip> a large bright high pixel count fast refresh OLED like in the XT2 is not going to be cheap to implement either . . ."

In spring 2013 a senior Pentax executive told me directly, verbally face to face that
1. FF is coming, but not soon
2. MILC would come when Pentax believes OLED EVF technology is mature enough to equal OVF image presentation

1. happened . . . .

Just sayin'

That doesn't matter It's about my photography experience not what a magazine will use.

I don't do video. So that would be money down the drain.

Will use GH4R until GH5 comes out..with a GX8 as my backup camera. Just became ambassador for Røde microphones too..So will produce more video in the future..also behind the scenes working with K-1 and 645Z

I did some video's but photography is really enough for me. My first one. The K-5 does pretty well I think. Need some practice focussing.

That's great news.....and reading between the lines, there wont be a video upgrade in Pentax bodies for quite a while AND probably no high end ML body either!
