Frankly NOT GOOD ENOUGH PENTAX, I demand you upgrade my kit lens to DA* and Limited via a firmware since you can obviously perform magic.

A member by the name of kevinon was kind enough to post this on DPReview, and I though it was worth sharing here as well.
FWIW, credit goes to YouTube - fotonara1234's Channel . It's his videos. He's a stupefying K20D video too so we all can see the difference

19 RAWs and 25 JPGs. So, both are written as compressed files now into the writing buffer and 25/19 is their approximate size difference (15MB vs. 20MB).

I would guess that a lower JPG quality would obtain more frames before buffer fills.

BTW, for the K-7 and in lowest 14.6MP JPG quality (1 star), the buffer actually never fills and the K-7 bursts 5.2fps forever (until battery depleted, card full or shutter broken). I did some 1 minute videos this way: IQ beats Hollywood I checked for the K-5 and it's too fast even in lowest JPG quality. At least with firmware v0.30.

LOL!!! this thread is filled with some real nuts! How many different ways can we count the clicks? I really am laughing out loud at the moment. I loved the musicians approach after JohnB's approach but Mr. Flores, you take the cake!
This is better than reality TV.
