I'm concerned about the resolution of the new SMFF camera. With 512 megapickles on a 4.5x6 meter sensor, that's only 18 pixels per square millimeter - equivalent to 7 kilopixels on APS-C. That resolution might not be good enough for all-important Facebook selfies. However, the low-light capabilities should be fantastic!

Yes, but the batteries needed to power the SR! A bank of OPTIMA yellow-tops come to mind. Tractor Battery | Forklift Battery | YELLOWTOP® | OPTIMABATTERIES

There's also no mention of a K-mount adapter - and WHEN are they going to provide an un-crippled M42 adapter so that Auto-Taks work as designed????

Yes! There's no excuse for Pentax not supporting every feature of every lens they ever made 100%!

I reckon it's better than being a dumb@$$! (Looking at certain individuals in the When? Why? FF thread that are certainly rocket scientist material. Or at the very least airplane engineers.)

Rocket surgeon = rocket scientist + brain surgeon. Usually found only on the Internet.

Because I am such a rocket surgeon, my next demand is that all hotels have TVs with USB ports so that you can review your pictures on the road. This LG 42" is sweet! (and appears to be running some flavor of Linux, since it referred to my card reader as /dev/somethingoranother)

new SMFF camera.
This winner of a camera needs a celebrity endorsement like Arnold!

Arnold says, "If you only shoot full frame, you are a little girly man!"

I'm still waiting for the best and brightest scientists and engineers of the world to put their heads together and design a car window for those of us in the frozen North that can be rolled down in the winter.

It's already been invented, it's called a garage.
Of course our 2 car one only holds one car, and a bunch of random stuff.
So wifey's gets it, and my truck sits outside.
