Am wondering if this has to do with some big photo show. Noticed I got a bunch adds about other brands showing new products. Wondered if Pentax might show some new lenses and stuff and have the new firmware to go with them. Nothin like that out there yet though.

Being allowed to select EFCS during LV is definitely welcome news and eliminates one of my biggest gripes

When I checked out my 1.4x with the 300 I had dark corners. Not at the sides or along the top or bottom. I was actually able to use a larger square in the middle. I think crop mode takes off some of the top and bottom. Is it possible that they would crop sides and extend the image area to the top and bottom. Leaving us with a square and more of the original pixels. A crop sensor lens on the K-1 with firmware might make use of more pixels.

Electronic shutter in live view mode, nice. This will probably get a lot of usage.

I hope they have implemented it in such a way that it can also be used during multiexposure and other built in drive modes. Well I guess I will find out later today.

I'm interested to know about the crop when someone tries it:
- Someone said it is for FF mode and not APS-C (great!) but does it apply to raw or just jpg?
- LV only or OV as well?
- Does it improve fps?
- Does it improve images that fit in buffer?

(IE, is it a real "sensor-readout" crop mode, or just in-camera pp that doesn't give the benefits I mention above)

Thanks for anyone letting me know! (still haven't taken the plunge on K1 but am really tempted...but hey, soon just a year left to mk2? =) )

Am I the only one excited or am I missing something?

Does the electronic shutter during live view means that user won't be limited by small aperture while shooting outdoors with flash?!

I meant sync speed still 1/180?

Edit: Nvm... Got too excited but perhaps max sync speed is still 1/180.. LoL!

Er, 1/200s, if that matters.
