Agreed, the filter is across the frame not more or less strong depending on how close it is to the center of a image.
The Birefringence material will affect the acceptence angle of the microlens depending how for fromt the pependicular it is this will affect vignetting at least.

To imagine it simply put a conmb infront of your eye now alter the angle of the comb (move on end away from your face) the light level will vary.

This reducing lightlevel will also cause localise difraction

ergo soft borders directly casued by the AA filter.

Interestingly Pentaxs AA simulator won;t suffer the same issue.

Congrats on the new Camera!

Here's what i would like to know! I have been thinking of getting the Pentx K-5 ii or iis, can you tell me if you can as to whether the Focus is faster on the K-3

If by chance you never touched or had the k-5ii, no worries!

We need photos of the camera/taken with the camera, otherwise, we don't believe you.

You must just be trolling and toying with us.

At B&H, it shows in stock for the body without lens. That was a change from earlier today.

Unfortunately, my BF ordered it and then deleted the email. So I don't know my order number, and I can't check on my order. Arg.

The critical bit of information for me is: Does tracking autofocus work during video shoot? Focus on something, start shooting video, walk towards the thing you focused on, and observe whether it stays in focus or not. If it does stay in focus, this camera will do it for me!

Okay, it's out of the box but I am at the office, no formal tests yet. With my FA31 and FA43 it focuses very fast in low light, on a solid black briefcase. The Select Focus Point works like it should, not the crappy K-5 implementation. Feels slightly heavier but the grip is a little more substantial which is makig up for it(with the FA31 mounted). Put my old Gordy strap on it, some black gaffer tape cover the K-3 insignia, looks 95% like the K-5...hopefully 100% to my The rear lcd is nicer, 3:2 is a bonus, the diopter is way easier to adjust as well. For all the Ricoh whiners out there, the box say Ricoh on it!!!...lmao, there will be gnashing of teeth over this for sure. The viewfinder is also larger, although that may be more the fact that it is squeaky clean than substantially larger.

You realize this is like standing in the candy store window while eating candy in front of hungry children?
