Time for a replacement for my old-tech K5? Reckon it can be considered some form of step up.

Do you guys ever get the "look" when you say that you're a Pentax user, or when you showed them your Pentax camera? Apart from the confusing looks, I mostly get the kinda "oh that's...a camera that I don't know, this guy must be serious"

Multiple exposure customisable button

Hi, this might have been discussed before, but I wonder if future firmware updates can implement Multiple Exposure to the one of the customisable button? Currently I couldn't assign it to my Raw/Fx button on my old K5.

Anybody else wanting the same feature? :confused:

Naming system: Full frame = K; APSC = M?

Just thought that future APSC models (like the successor of K3) can start to take the M prefix instead, like the old MX line, since they both share the smaller size factor trait? The. It won't confuse with the K flagship FF line.

The top LCD is small. Any concern?

I wonder how they'd squish text into it.

Aesthetically that part is something to improve in the next model.

DA* 16-50 SDM quick fix/check
Posted By mythguy9

After 1-2 months of inactivity, I did not use my DA* 16-50mm 2.8 for a while. When I mount the lens to my K5, the SDM was not responsive and autofocus did not work at all. As I'm aware of the motor issue for inactive lens, I thought "at last, SDM's dead".

Before I send it to repair or perform DIY repair, I thought I should keep on trying to engage the auto focus. So I did the following:
  • half press shutter button for many time, with varying durations (1-10 secs)

  • full press AF button at the back with varying duration, and on one very long press (~20 sec) the SDM kicked in again! :cool:

This is just to let you 16-50 owners know before you decide that the motor is dead. And I guess the best way to maintain the motor is to keep on using the lens...

No...would've used a digital camera if I want a shooting trip to be viewed as I go. When I shoot film I would've already accepted the fact that I would not be able to view it until post dev.

Let's wait. Now people keep saying FF got delayed because of K3 ii callbacks, then Q got delayed because Ricoh is focusing on FF. Are they all linked? I don't know...we can just wait, and keep shooting :)

Should we rejoice that it is a good announcement (one more step towards FF) rather than getting too fixed on the "rebadge or not" side?
