1) Can the 1.4x TC be used with any DA lens ?
2) Also what does the SDM signify ? does it mean that SDM will be available on non SDM lenses when coupled with this TC ?

(Sorry, never used a TC before)

Cheers

Yep, I think what could get me hooked up on the limited lenses are a small enough body. It has always looked sort of odd with pancakes on the relatively bulky K10D and K20D. Does anyone have the exact dimensions of the KM? How thick will it be with the DA pancakes on?

Don't think though that I will care for any kit zooms with plastic bayonet.

And this M = "Miles", what does that come from?
I know. I can say it is a bit smaller than *ist DS.

Not very nice, both new Kits ( L ) have a plastic bayonet
Maybe metal price is high..? Without plastic I guess they couldn't lower the price enough to be competitive.

Translation

hahahaha

The word "Miles" does not appear in the the German version, I feel the Google translation is seeing the "K-m" as km (kilometres) and converting it to "Miles"

So! What does the "m" stand for??

In Roman numbers the M letter means 1000

"K-M is the smallest Pentax DSLR and smallest DSLR in the world with in-camera SR."

This could make for some great marketing if the specs hold true to this being the smallest camera available. People like small.

While I REALLY wanted something new above a K20D announced, I am happy if Pentax can create a nice camera that sells to the masses. It can only help the bottom line and marketing efforts and thus help with R&D and future higher end camera production. For now, I will just upgrade to K20D and keep a K10D till probably after PMA when the next announcement will come and I spend another week constantly checking this message board! HA!

The K-m is a very interesting camera; I would like to see more specs and especially the dimension/weight comparison against the K200d and the entry level dslr from other brands.

It seems the K-m will be quite a bit smaller than the k200d, notice the top panel lcd is gone and the mode dial is on the right hand side of the camera. I wonder if it takes AA batteries, will definitely get one if it does. Add a DA 40mm and use it as a take-it-anywhere camera.


I can’t keep myself from chuckling when seeing the new “L” lens and it means something entirely different from c***n “L”. It would be hilarious if Pentax “L” lens happens to be white. Now how about a new slogan: “Pentax: L is nothing, * is the King”
