Probably should amend the review to cover the pTTL preflash shutter delay that is longer than other Pentax cameras...see thread below...
Which thread are you referring to?

Hello,
Do you have any plans of re-testing the AF-C?

First they need to understand the difference between the DoF in an FF camera, and DoF in an APS-C camera, which affects the AF-C performance perception.

Or even better, compare the D7100 — not D610 — with a K-3. And just maybe, use lenses of similar specs and same focal length?

Would that be asking too much? But no, we are not used to such kind of reviews from PF — anything else would not cause an instantaneous outburst of laughter.

Some site did, The K-3 is faster autofocus than the D7100, the D7100 has "slightly" better tracking.

The new firmware has better AF+continuous shooting performance (or so they say).

FYI the review has been updated with info on the K-3 grip, silver edition, and the FluCard. Enjoy!

Really appreciate such an in-depth review and far better than the one from DP Review (when they finally got to it).

Probably too time consuming to keep going back over things. But has the original reviewer had a chance (maybe if using a K-3 for day to day shooting) to test any of their concerns with the latest firmware, say 1.11. To see if any noteworthy improvements to default setting etc.have been made ?
