I refer you to the LX, released in 1980.

I hope they name it the KC, whenever it hits the warehouses.

The LX shutter button has a screw in cable release socket, which is an easy to find solution. The Remote Trigger linked left is harder to find.

Edited to provide more complete info after reading following posts.

As usual I sold at the bottom. I thought (hoped) they would build a ground-up new platform, considering GRlll the technology direction, but I was right suggesting the LX is an example of an anniversary camera released the following year.

Until literally yesterday I wouldn’t have bothered with that exchange. My bad.

Iíll buy that.

I was hoping for a ground-up redesign of the entire system logic. Nevertheless it should be a good to great camera for K-mount users.

Looks to me like an MX AP/S/K prism housing. I think the second set is low res and the light is fooling you - canít see the roll over the top.

I’m not convinced it doesn’t have an articulating screen. My guess is the new top panel S.Fn soft button changes the data display on the top LCD So we can cycle through more info. My guess is the top dials don’t have all their function choices printed on this preview body (keeping a surprise or two in reserve). I doubt the would take up all that real estate for three choices.

The ergonomics of the body have always bee excellent, so why mess with it? What really matters is the internal architecture. Is this a clear break with the past or just a further extension of the core Sony / SAFOX / SocioNext logic? If it is the same old same old what took so long?

To justify buying another new camera I would be forced to sell the K10-D, K-01, K-5lls, and KP, plus a lot of lenses and film cameras. Whatever technology it introduces, I should probably sell all that stuff anyway, stick with K-1 and buy the FF replacement when it is released with the new tech.

OWTH. I’ll probably buy it.

It looks unfinished - one of the buttons isnít painted and the joystick looks odd so donít assume the depicted LCD flush mount is the finished product.

I have used to to remove the adhesive residue from garage sale white price stickers, from both metal and leatherette surfaces. Goo Gone leaves an oily sheen that I clean with Residual Oil Remover.

No, they don’t. They have spoken.

And for the general good I’m out.

And mine as well. I’ve said many times the LX was released the year after the 60th Anniversary, when they had finished it.

The camera is coming when it is finished, not before, not rushed to meet a date on the calendar and not a half-baked job to fill a blank page in the catalog. They’ve said it is coming, members in Japan have said it is coming, so why castigate them for having an empty ‘spot’?

Be patient, encourage others to be patient and use what you have, not what you dream about.
