K-3 MkIII DNG files

Has anyone seen any links to MkIII DNG files that are downloadable? I'd like to try them with my Processing software.

I replied to this elsewhere, but both the ambassador videos and @StephenObermeier's video/blog post indicate that testers were only given a pre-release firmware. They imply that part of the terms of getting the pre-release camera is that they not share raw files because of the pre-release firmware. At best, they will push the 1.0 firmware to those with pre-release cameras before the rest of us get the camera and release them from the restrictions on sharing raw files.

I guess it is too early, as most PP software won't support the K3III yet. It will eventually be possible to download DNGs from imaging-resources once they do their review of the camera, at which point PP software will likely support the K3III (color profile).

I plan to buy the MkIII as soon as its available and I suspect that Imaging-Resources will not do their review until after the cameras are shipped.
What I'm needing is a RAW file with the EXIF files intact. I would think the basic EXIF data will remain the same after the firmware is finalized.

Unless you know an ambassador who values their friendship with you over their professional relationship with Pentax, you're not likely to get your hands on a raw file any time soon. It's pretty clear that Pentax does not want the raw files from cameras with pre-release firmware finding their way into the hands of anyone they haven't approved.

Do you mean relying on camera color profile embedded in the DNG for proper colors rendering of the raw files if your RAW converter doesn't have a K3III color profile?

What do you need RAW for? Here are OOC JPEGs:

I've been anxiously awaiting DPR to post a sample gallery for the K3 III. Hopefully, that comes soon. They typically post JPEGs along with the RAW file. I'd love to get hold of any RAW image files that are out there for my own testing purposes.

Because I have to special order this camera through the retailers we have here in Canada, I don't have the opportunity to drop into my local camera shop and test it out in person, so I have to lean heavily on the real-world information I'm getting from others. I'm already convinced of the camera's overall usability and ergonomics, but I still want to see some RAW format examples that I can explore before taking the plunge.

I'm waiting for their second set of images - as the first one will be misaligned or otherwise defective (they do that every time...)
