I think this isn't possible, but it would be great if you could avoid the shutter noise when taking time lapse videos. This would be a useful feature for the next version of the k3. I set mine up for a time lapse the other day - worked great, but it was pretty noisy.

A cool addition to the SR system would be to add a sensor tilt feature, to use in conjunction with the sensor shift feature that's available on the k3. How cool would that be?

I think there would have to be a trade off of body thickness to degree of tilt.

flash synchronization

synchronization at 1/160 - it's no good ... in K3- 2 would very much like to see the synchronization at a much faster shutter speeds ..

Having just seen this I think Pentax needs a much better JPEG engine.
Not that I use it, but on first glance you'd think K-S2 is much worse camera than the others, based on that JPEG.

A great feature I would like to see in the new Pentax cameras (or the new lenses, but I prefer the cameras) is a AF fine adjustment, like the one that Sigma uses for different focal lengths (when a zoom lens is mounted) and different focus distances that would be saved for each lens as it is already happening.

Being able to trigger HSS flashes via the onboard flash.... even if the onboard doesn't do HSS, it would be awesome if you could wirelessly control an off camera HSS flash with it.

There is not as much difference with the K3 that is also 24MP.

Noticably :
- All the JPEGs are noticably much worse than the RAW, all cameras.
- Sony push too far its settings and get lot of aliasing in Raw.
- Pentax has the softest raws overall, I wonder if it was used with the AA similation enabled because my shoots surely look sharper than that.

The most amazing improvement is if they put a system in one that made it magically appear at my house.
I believe they do have that capability. All required is your credit card

This 2 + 10 fps will be very very good.. one thing that some people complained witht he K3 ist hat most of the AF points were in the center.. so perhaps more points around the frame will be great.

Not if it has smart phone and tablet tethering. Then it would be redundant and expensive.
I'm guessing that smart phone is a substitute only if you work off a tripod. Much of my photography is similar to street photography, so tripod isn't going to happen (or even is against the rules/law), but a flippy screen would allow me to be more discrete.

+1 this is not the same use.

No, you can use your legs as a tripod substitute but it takes a little effort and practice to work with it successfully using a neck strap, in a similar fashion to an SLR with a removable prism or a TLR, shooting from the waist. I've done this several times now with my K-3.
