A question about the k7

Ive been searching the threads and ricehighs blog to find this info but does any one know if the new k-7s sensor will have a crop factor of 1.3 (in contrast to my beloved k10Ds 1.5-6) or not?


maybe no one knows and hence the lack of information but if any one else knows, please share the information.


thanks!

Its almost 100% guarenteed to have an APS-C sensor, i.e. 1.5 crop

ok thank you. the reason i asked is that wikipedia writes that aps-c sensors come in different sizes and added to this there was some rumors of 1.3 but darn another 1.5 crop.

No one who actually knows can share. But anything but the current 1.5 crop seems incredibly unlikely.

While nobody who can write about it in this forum knows, I think we can agree that the sensor is 99% likely to be the classic Pentax 1.53x crop APS-C.

If anybody want's to hold on to that 1% 1.3x crop APS-H dream...be my guest
