Ricoh USA? :P
The K-3 (AFAIK) and K-5II both had -3EV sensitivity on all points. You could easy check it by comparing the regular K-5 and K-5II in dark conditions - the improvement was easy to notice on all points, not just a center one. And the K-1 uses the same AF module as the K-3...

5-stops in CIPA standards mean about 4-stops in real life. Still better than before, of course.

I saw "Flash Sync Speed" setting in Custom Menu... Hopefully they allow to send the regular sync signal above sync speed with this...

It had 1 point with 2.8 precision (the K-3 had 3 just like the K-1) but all of them had -3EV sensitivity. Those are two different things.

They didn't change the AF button position on the new battery grip to match the one on the body? "All the pros" didn't tell them?

I mean, it looks better, but not that much better, to make my jaw drop. :)
I still hope, those outer brackets are for 3-points columns and outer single points are further away, BTW... Even if it is against logic and past use of bracket marks... ;)

It's pretty common, so not a jaw dropper.
It is possible, but judging by focusing screen marks not that effective this time.
Not possible with a slow sensor.
Nice, but still nothing to make my jaw drop... :)

Why would they switch to different brand then? Especially when the newest Milbeaut came out right in time?

Why would they call the processor PRIME IV then?

There is a see-through LCD, like in the most of modern DSLRs, I suppose.

Of course, the IMX094 is too slow for 4K and Milbeaut 8 can do nothing with that.

Test Pentax K-3 - U
Test Pentax K-3 II - U
In Polish. Google translate should be good enough. Optyczne.pl = LensTip.
I thought so too, but I double-checked it and there was no claim about the CIPA standards before.

That's just not true. ISO80 was a true base ISO for the IMX071. No pull down at all. The highest analog gain for that sensor was about ISO1000, so everything up was just a digital "push".
The regular IMX094 is limited to 4.7 fps itself. It's rather indication of an older sensor than a processor. However the Milbeaut 7 alias PRIME III would do for this camera as well (just by looking at those specs).
They just switch to CIPA standards specs for the K-3II. Tests didn't show any improvement.
Not that "specialised". T.1 for most cheap, regular, voltage controlled strobes at lower settings are longer than 1/200s. The same goes for most speedlights at 1/1. The real problem is to get the pre-sync signal and delay strobes accordingly, cause it goes on side pins of a hotshoe, not the middle. If the central pin would provide regular sync signal above 1/180/1/200th, you would still have a problem with the highest flash peak within the frame. Pre-sync&delay allows to make the transition soft by cancelling the highest peak at the cost of overall brightness.

The K-1 is slightly taller and the flap starts lower than in the K-3.
