Don't worry. I'm sure the folks at DPR will have a review up shortly that rates it somewhere between the Brownie Hawkeye and the Instamatic.

ROTFLMAO. Or delay the review at least 6 months.

I think DPR will review it fairly. Maybe faster than what anyone guessed.

I will be interested to see how it performs and the new dfa lenses on dxomark. Surely it will sit between or above the a7r11 and d810

Well, I suppose it's possible. Everything that's ever happened, or will happen, has to have a first time. Maybe this will be the one for a fair Pentax review.

Yes - I think we will be pleasantly surprised. I suggest taking a deep breath and holding the knee before commenting.

The preview was pretty fair. *

"Slow live view shutter response and focus"

Guessing/hoping this is as compared to other LV systems... K-3 has been basically fine for me so as long as it's on par... Or we could be talking firmware?

You don't consider Gold Awards for all recent APS-C flagships (K5, K5 II, K3) fair?
