I would be curious to know what does "double cross sensor" actually means....
one kross tuned to f/5.6, another to f/2.8

Also note that battery is compatible with GX10/20.

Also it says that AF is available in video mode.

Really? Do you really want two radios drawing juice from your camera? Are you here to surf the internet or take pictures?

I'm calling horseshit on this one. This looks like the work of a corporate terrorist, trying to undermine the launch of the K-7 with such delicious carrots as AMOLED articulating screen, and manual video controls.

I do not want to have "SAMSUNG" written on my camera, but if those specificationas are true... It really is K-7 killer, it betters K-7 everywhere except size and weight.

I am most intersted in two things:

1) AF system. Looks like it is new, Samsung designed AF system. Could be major breakthrough. If Samsung makes AF system as good as competition, that alone would seal the deal for me.

2) Sensor. Is it the same as in K-7 or tweaked one? Will it be better in high ISO.

Let's wait for 7th of July...

So I just read today specs for the Samsung GX30.
Are these specs more than rumour?

It does look good, but somehow, I just can't see my self using a Samsung. Extra slots, faster sync, faster FPS looks good though.
And what if that GX-30 blows away K-7 in AF speed?

It does seem that this describes an awful lot of stuff that has to take up space, considering the same dimensions as a 20..... Where's it all go? I don't think you could fit all that stuff in.

If it's true and price is not higher USD 1200,
70-80% of Pentaxian in Russia buy GX30.

A lot of Pentaxian like the weight and size of K10D/K20D's body.

1. It won't. 2. Buy lenses with QSF if you're in such a rush. 3. Anything you buy will depreciate 30 to 40% the second you buy it, and something better will come out the next day for less money. 4. AF speed is only one parameter, with some other parameter, Pentax will beat the Samsung.

You can wait forever, waiting for the 'perfect' spec. or go out and learn how to use the tool you have to take some pictures.

- 11 AF sensors (10 simple-cross AF sensors and center double-cross AF sensor)
- High continue shooting 6fps (50 high quality JPEG and 16 DNG)
- Low continue shooting 4fps (JPEG full card and 24 DNG)
- Flash Sync 1/250 (1/200 OIS on)
- 3”Intelligent AMOLED 780K** dots swing and tilt display
- Built-in GPS
- Double SD/SDHC slots
- Lithium Ion battery SLB-2000***

**800х600 resolution
***GX10 and GX20 compatible
