I suppose you are looking at the same press photos as I have. If so then sorry Wieland, you are completely wrong. Maybe you haven't noticed that for some odd reason Pentax chose to take that shot with the ground glass screen frame in the down position. I.e. that's not the mirror but the ground glass screen!
Uh, you lost me there. Layman's terms, does this mean we're gonna get a bigger viewfinder or not?

What I don't like is that the bracketing is gone into the menu.
I use it very often.

The only thing I wanted to make clear is that the existence of a bigger viewfinder cannot be proven from the set of press photos that have been leaked. So, it's still unsure at this moment. Just prepare for the worst and you'll never be disappointed

Pentax K-7 has new generation Autofocus system !

... WAIT A MINUTE ...

Have I been the only one to notice this:

Om81 on penta-club.ru has a (new?) signature line, which reads:
I ♥ SAF0X-iiX
(the current one is SAFOX-VIII)


So, a first bit of information being leaked?

VIII=5+3=8 IIX=10-2=8 there is no difference. apart from the fact that the second one is grammatically(?) incorrect

LOL, the Roman numeral IIX does not exist. He's making fun out of us as VIII = 8 and if IIX existed (it doesn't) it would be equal to 8 too.

Edit: damn, everyone is faster than me today

10 - 2 = 8 (but of course IIX is grammatically incorrect for Roman numerics)

5 + 3 = 8

There is NO Difference!

You can already today.

"Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less", as Marie Curie once said.

Hmm, I think this confirms SAFOX VIII

When the romans did their counting they also "substacted" for example by placing an "I" before the larger one: Five was "V", One was "I", so four was "IV".... So IIX is Ten ("X") minus One ("") minus One ("I") = Eight ( - VIII).

But if I may believe a friend who lectures maths, even the same thing with different algorythms may be an important improvement, especially if the additional electronics can be improved as well.
Algoritms can be powerfull. Or so I am led to believe....

No worries there. I'm only expecting K20D innards in a new shell so my expectations are much lower than others here. Any spec above what the K20D offers now becomes a pleasant surprise for me.

Ok, but this is an interesting lesson, too.

Whenever I want replies, I will post a silly mistake


EDIT:
And another lesson: rumor excitement can cause severe brain damage
