K-7 5.2FPS only in LV with mirror lock-up?

This information was written in one of czech pentax forums. Can anybody say if it is true? Is 5.2FPS only with mirror lock-up?

This is not correct, AFAIK.

5.2 fps normal shooting, up to 40 jpegs.

But then I heard that beta K-7 had the Continuous Hi mode locked anyway.

You seem to enjoy too much trolling on this forum to ever leave anyway and I predict that if you ever get another brand you'll come here just to remind us how lame Pentax really is.

I really hope this is not true. Otherwise it would be a huge let down...

I love to bash pentax
I've completed the missing word(s).

For everyone else: people, only few hours are left. No need to speculate/bash on whatever's on the internet. I mean, on whatever false information is on the internet

Maybe it is a idea to think first about yourself...
It's just like a fan of a sportsman/sportswomen, you can't see the weakness of your idol. That's the same when you are a 'fan' of a brand, a great brand like Pentax is of course.

I do share the idea that Pentax is a great brand, a brand with a rich history. But I am also critical, and there is nothing wrong with being a bit critical and compare features and performances with other brands.

I think you are a bit 'unfriendly' to kolouch, when you are saying that he/she is just 'troll' and nothing more. Of course he/she is also just a user of the equipment produced by the brand Pentax, and he/she has also the right to be critical and compare specifications and performances with other brands. That doesn't mean that he/she is a 'troll'.

Also it's up to 40 JPG and 16 or so RAW in high mode, and until card is full JPG and 17 RAW in low mode.

Yes, same as JPEG's, but for less images. So it will shut down to slower speed earlier because the buffer will be filled earlier with RAW than with JPEG's.

I mean in general, when you are comparing specifications and performances, it isn't really polite to 'bash' him/her than for being critical.
