Thanks BruceBanner, yours as well! One of the things I like is not always having to do post processing - that one is straight out of the camera jpeg.

The price in the press release is lower than Amazon - $1099, which is what B&H and Adorama show. Good, already came down $100! Haha, still a bit expensive. I may get it if it doesn't have the noisy shutter (I know that sounds trivial, but it is annoying to me).

Wow, that is great and big news! If the mid-range looks this good, can't wait to see the K-3 II replacement.

I wonder if one of the wheels can be selected to be a dedicated ISO selector? That would be good since that is one of the buttons that is missing and one that I use a lot on my K-3.

I am a bit concerned about the shutter - if it is not the top-of-the-line model with the quiet shutter and without the aperture-block issues, what is it? I won't go back to the noisy shutter that we don't know has had its issues resolved. Other than that, looks like fun to use. I compared the size of the mount to my ME Super and camera body looks to be not much bigger - maybe about the size of a k-s2. If it has a quiet shutter, I would get it as a replacement for my k-01. Great for limiteds. But of course, the cost is high for a mid-range model...

A tip I've found most useful is to pay attention to white balance, especially if you shoot jpg. i sometimes carry a grey card, but if I don't have room for that, a nice very white sheet of printer paper can easily be tucked into any camera bag. You can either set your white balance manually using the sheet, or if you are shooting raw, a shot of the paper can save you a bit of time in post processing since you can use that as a reference point and copy it to other images.

I would order larger than normal, however. The XL shrunk to about the size of a L. Okay if you like tight-fitting t-shirts (I guess I would like it more if I was more 'buff'). Cool design, though.

K-3II to be announced soon

And to add to this, Ricoh has stated with their introduction of the lower models is to pull in some of the cell-phone-photo crowd (questionable how well that went with the k-s1...) but those folks are entry-level people that would appreciate the convenience of an on-board flash, not to mention its usefulness. By removing it you have limited the eventual upgrade path that the customer has when they outgrow their entry-level cameras, and they may look elsewhere. That and immediately cutting out a segment of the market that will not buy a camera without one will limit Ricoh's potential customer base. I think this is about choice, and those choices may impact the short and long-term growth prospects of the company's brand - PENTAX. They should be focusing on customer attraction and retention and it appears this will do neither.

Unfortunately, that is probably what a lot of people are going to say to themselves. And just think of all of the reviewers that will jump all over that! If Ricoh want to expand their user base, they are probably going to have to take market share from someone else. Where is the advantage? Why shoot yourself in the foot like this! This is annoying and embarrassing. I’ll stick with my k-5IIs. (Pro’s out there will probably scoff at this, but I’ll bet there are more non-pro’s buying Pentax, and many of this silent majority may be put off by not having a built-in flash.)

Last chance for the K5IIs

A few days after I read this I decided to get one, too. I probably got one of the last ones and I love it. One of the reasons I didn't before was the lack of focus-peaking for manual-focus lenses - it is really a non-issue. The ability to enlarge the image up to 10x on the LCD in live-view works much better (for me) than focus-peaking anyway (I had focus-peaking on the K-50 I used to have). The camera is a classic and I am happy to own one. Anyway, thanks for your post!

I like this design - simple and not too many colors. I don't know if the methods of screen-printing have changed since the last time I ordered anything, but the more colors, the more complex the screening (artwork, registration, etc.) and more expensive. Is this still valid in today's t-shirt printing world? Some of the designs above are works of art, but I don't know if they would print well either - like grey scale printing... Anyway, some nice work here.

I, for one (and maybe the only one here), am looking forward to it. I really like the DA 16-45mm and if it sounds like exactly what I could use. Same extra little bit on the wide side (compared to 18mm) and a longer reach - the one thing I always wanted out of the 16-45. A 24-127mm 35mm equiv sounds great to me. A nice alternative to the kit lens, like the 16-45 is, but better.
