Hopefully the recent UK trade deal with Japan will start making an effect on the photography goods. I think I've seen some info that there's a couple of years until many items potentially including cameras become duty free... would have to look for the source.

There are some claiming that the stabilised image from the lens aids better autofocus results. If true, why not having it?

I have always been saying that they would totally blow the market over if they ever made 67 digital. Super expensive but noone else has such a portfolio of existing good lenses they could plug straight away. Also many many users with existing lenses and a lot of positive experience + nostalgia makes for the best PR

Six different versions of the Pentax K-3 Mark III

One has to remember that both K-01 and Q were sold at massive discounts in the end as a result of negative publicity and large stock overheads. At one point I remember buying Q and Q10 for some 60 when the starting price for Q was I think 600. Unit sales don't bring a lot of revenue in such sell-offs

I spoke to the largest UK distributor and my go-to shop SRS Microsystems this weekend and they seemed to be quite relaxed about the announcement pointing out that it is Japan specific. They said they'd stock up should it threaten availability globally.

DA560 production end / successor ?

I think it will take a lot of sales of K-3III to put Ricoh imaging into a cash flow state where they would be happy to risk developing another lens of this sort. I have no sales data of the camera nor the 560 to support my assumption but I think developing a new super tele is not on the books now.

pixel shift mode - multiply resolution

Pentax Pixel Shift doesn't multiply resolution. It rather removes Bayer array dependency and delivers absolute sharpness only limited by lens and sensor, less noise and maximum dynamic range

I would expect Ricoh is waiting for some cashflow from sales of K-3III and sales figures to get this going

this doesn't sound like 12 frames per second. if you switch to manual focus and try again you will see a much faster run and the buffer will fill up quicker too

That wasn't a reaction to your particular post, I've counted three bird on sky pictures in this thread already, nothing wrong with the subject, I just wanted to note that the challenge for AF is greater with busy background... no hard feelings, I hope :)

may I perhaps suggest that a distinct object on a clear featureless background isn't the best test for AF tracking reliability? It is when there are structures around the object that may attract the AF attention that it matters most. that's not to say your pictures do not engage the AF or are in any way bad, just a note to the real challenge...

Ideas for the next 645 (pure speculation)
Posted By davidsladek

I've said it before - I don't think 645 format is Pentax's market anymore... I don't think they can grab it back from Fuji and the others anymore even if they went for the full MF sensor size...
I think they should start seriously thinking about moving their 67 format to digital and work with a sensor producer so they're first in the league... their 67 lens catalogue is famous and cherished and all the competitors are decades behind...
I know there isn't such a sensor yet... but that is because noone ever ventured to this space... 645 is dead for Pentax, people from camera shops tell me that noone ever even looks at their display since the Fujis came to market... time to move up...

I think half of Ricoh/Pentax problems is not linked to product at all but to their communication. Their comms are almost medieval to today's world, their presentations are too. I don't really know wny but that is a big part of the problem why people don't take them seriously. Because the product certainly is serious and great.

Not sure if this was discussed, but the Accelerator unit doesn't only handle noise reduction but also the colour fidelity and maybe other variables too (dynamic range...). so for it to kick in at 100 it may not be bad news depending on what it is programmed to do at this sensitivity...
