Because that 20/2 is a mirrorless lens?

If it happened to be true ( I wouldn't be that surprised, and wouldn't care btw), expect an awful lot of other stupid complaints.

Optically, all designed by Pentax but 12-24.
But I agree, my 50-135 is a diamond.

True but if they expect D500 then can moan way more easily.

My plan too. Although it means 50-200/50-135 and 16-45 should migrate somewhere else.
I don't care that much, loads of old lenses and an FA28-80/3.5-4.7 lying somewhere. Just need another zoom and I'm set.

I guess I should sell the DA*50-135...

Yep, PLM is new but has nothing to do with ring motors used in DFA* lenses coming. This has, I believe, been stated clearly.
The delay to the DFA*50 introduction is due to this new (to Pentax) AF motor. Acain, stated by RI.
If it was PLM, there'd be no need of delay related to AF motors.

I never said anything about what the accelerator does or does not.

What I say is: the raw is cooked/baked/whatever anyway so the debate about whether to cook or not to cook (no, no kitchen) is completely pointless and so is the debate about the accelerator because even if it did, it would not change a thing.

Now, as you say, we dunno how it works. And I never wrote I did.

You mean that some would not want to understand that once you go further than the sensor built-in amplification, the rest is always completely software ?

In the K5 case, if I'm not mistaken, the sensor gain went up to about iso 1600 (3200 for Fuji but that's just pulling legs) the rest was all software. So if course it's cooked. Always and by all.

Not that I'm fan of it...

Pentax K-1 Mark II DSLR camera detailed specifications leaked

This basically what DFS is (Dark Frame Substraction). The thing is, that technique usually takes a 'noise' picture at the same exposure time as the picture taken.
'cos it gets (did get) noisier with longer exposures.

Now it seems DFS is not used anymore or less so maybe sensors react differently.

So it is a good idea but I dunno if it is actually possible to implement or effective enough. iMO of course.

Agreed in general, but common standard pro zooms should be done, IMO 16-50/50-135.

No. Why would anyone do such a stupid thing ?

We'll be able to have abetter idea of the AF-C capabilities once somone can properly test K1-II with DFA*50/1.4.
Then if it sucks, we can't blame it on one part of the equation slowing the other part.

What's up Ron, you used to be able to find something against Pentax resisting critics for a least half a second.
Try again.

Other than the fact you misquoted (text by mecrox I believe not by me), we just have different interests.
I don't care a iota about reach excpet if it's free (which it never is).
I do not grab my Dslr now but exception, my GR does fine for what my phone won't do.
So a K-1 (or K-1 II whatever) will be a lst update for yeaaars to come. 'cos I've got quite a number of old very good K/M lenses and I want ot use them as such.
Everything else is bonus. I'll grab a couple good old FF AF lenses for times I need AF and that's it.
If my wife doesn't want my K-5; well, what my wife don't use on her K100D I'll sell (DA mostly I mean).

It does NOT mean I don't hear you and understand you.
What isn't clear from Asahiman is the following, IMO of course: Yes RI will concentrate on FF then 645 range of products then APS.
But it doesn't mean a flagship APS will wait for 645 lenses range to be done with. Just not right now.
Besides, we might want to check K-1 II first and see what it may (or not) bring to the table for APS users.
