I bet C focus mode is a continuous focus for movie mode- similar to AF-C but simplified for movies.
And how do you focus in movies? Contrast that is!

Um, I think it's exactly "AF-C", but they didn't have room for "AF". Look at the picture.

Always search for the simplest answer. It's most probably the truth.
In this case, I'd say since there was no room for "AF.C",they wrote only "C" instead.

L.E. I should check for new messages before hitting "Post".
Now is that the definition of irony or what?

There are 2 versions of specification of K-7. Funny...There is difference.
One has 1/180 x-sync, second - 1/250. For example.

It is...especially since ogl "has the specs on [his] table"

Yeah, what is the secret feature?

Seriously, it all sounds good but it remains to be seen how good are the "improvements". High ISO noise and AF performance come to mind.

1/180 x-sync is a bit surprising given the 1/8000 top speed shutter. If the shutter is faster, it should sync at a higher speed too. Strange.

Now let's see the price...

I wish the cover/cap of the flash socket thingy was tethered. It's so easy to lose it.
