Another Pentax Meeting

Will be meeting next week with the whole team at PENTAX. Preparing the press and the marketing for the up and coming "Salon" in Paris. If there is anything new that I can share, I will. I'll see what I can find out regarding the 645D.

Ben

As it has been uncovered that Pentax will be including the focus accuracy adjustment for lenses in the menu of the new cameras like the new Canon has - maybe you can ask if they will be including this new feature in a future K10D firmware. As it is purely a software update, it would be ridiculous for them not to give it to us, and a mistake to assume current K10D owners are not the type of customer to want this.

Also, you mentioned that you wanted to say more about the K10D issues at the last meeting with them, but were unable due to time. Maybe you can find out if anything specific is being worked on for future firmware updates such as instant lock-on AF option without double check, jpeg (and RAW) IQ tweaks, more menu options, etc.

Ask them for an option for a dedicated B&W capture - I want RAW & JPEG, with the RAW file normal and the JPEG file in my preference of B&W conversion (as per the built-in B&W filter. Or how about automatically bracketing the B&W conversion channels - that would be neat.

Mike,

I, like you hope for July, but quite frankly what I am hearing is substantially later than that. Think of months with autumn names.

Don't take this for gospel... but... time is a passing...

When we were eating I looked Y. in the eyes and said..What about the 645D..He smiled, I smiled, he said, of course it will come out. I said when...He said, sooner than you think. I said..You don't know when I think it will come out. He said it "IS" coming out. That game of Tennis went on for a while... It got to be kind of fun. That is when I changed the subject and said..Hey what about the new DSLR's..That is where the "Sensor" subject came up and you know the rest.

Now this is only my "Gut" feeling and isn't anything endorsed by Pentax. I have a feeling not until January of 2008...

Thats pretty soon. I was guessing more along the lines of spring/summer 2008. Will be great if its sooner. So Benji, when its out will you be using the top-end dSLR at that time or will you move up to MF?
