I actually was given an X-sync flash attachment and a large belt-bag of 20ms Sylvania bulbs
i'm probably missing something here but Isn't FP sync more appropriate for those bulbs considering the rise time?

Yes, Yes it is, which is part of the reason they’re still around. I suppose I could plug that fan base in an FP terminal on a newer old camera but I’ve never bothered.

@kenspo: nice!
Please take time to post your opinion about the differences from the K-1, after you get the chance to use it a little.
I would have thought that a brand ambassador might have had preference in getting a new model, but either way, some observations would be good to read, particularly about high-ISO performance and AF speed and accuracy.

No KP ??
Which gear do you use when in the need of traveling with lower weight?
Had both KP and GRII...Didnt like either weight doesn't bother me.

Yes, I always need to use the latest and best But yes, High ISO and AF is the 2 most crucial things for me, so they will be tested good!

What did you dislike in KP if I may ask?
Form factor ? Battery life? Missing display on the top? Something else?

Somehow, I "heard" a little while ago that Kenspo had left the Pentax world ! ??? Or ... was it on April 1st?

What's this April 20th date? They are already being delivered in The Netherlands. I wonder why DCU hasn't had an update yet to handle the PEF's.

Damn. I was hoping to have one by the end of the week - I have some serious concert photography coming up. I'll just have to make do with the two K-1's and two 645Z's I already have.
How many do you typically take to one show?
