    No surprises there….more will come!

  • The Doctor

    Finally, a variable angle LCD screen. I wonder if it is a touch screen too?

    • Ethan

      A99 had one too.

    • Pirate_Bear

      no touch screen. 😉

  • WillWeaverRVA

    Only 6.5 fps? 🙁 So it’s basically an enhanced Nikon D750…

    • sperdynamite

      More like a more-outdoorsy D810. The Subaru to Nikon’s Toyota.

      Anyway FPS is such an overhyped and under used feature. How many people in the sports community are really underserved by what’s currently available?

      • CHD

        Agreed…fps has gotta be one of the most overrated features of a camera. It would be interesting to see what % of photographers need anything greater than 4-5 fps, or for that matter what % that even use continuous shooting mode.

        • Spy Black

          What a buffer can hold regardless of frame rate is more important.

          • CHD

            Agreed

        • Piotr Kosewski

          I’m pretty sure it’s still more expected than e.g. 4K movies – a feature many people rave about today even though it’s mostly pointless.

          What you have to consider is Pentax’s market situation. They most likely won’t make a pro FF body (>10fps) and they are pretty famous for offering something extra in specs compared to C&N.
          So, obviously, 6.5 fps is no coincidence. 5Dm3 tops at 6fps and, while D750 can also do 6.5 fps, it has a 24 MPx sensor (D810 does mere 5fps :)). Pentax is leading in performance – just like the brochure says. Who has ever used a Pentax digital body knows, what are the consequences of this strategy. 🙂

          • nwcs

            Pentax does see some things the big players don’t. How they do 30 second astrotracking using their IBIS sensor is brilliant.

          • Piotr Kosewski

            Nope. Pentax simply has to add features like this to get any attention and keep the user base.

            If they were making a camera that didn’t stand out of the crowd (even if it was slightly better than the competition), they would sell nothing.

            The way they do things: astrotracking here, “superresolution” there, supposedly better sealing etc. helps them keep the brand worth something. 🙂
            And that’s what Pentax is all about. Not profitable and without a huge market share, but still a “crown jewel” in a large corporation’s portfolio (currently Ricoh’s).

      • Sakaphoto Graphics

        Shooting at skate parks, I do much better with the Olympus E-M1 and Panasonic GH4 than the Nikon D7200 when I need a sequence of shots. Photographing a touring bike rider yesterday, the D7200 didn’t keep up at all. 🙁

        • nwcs

          I’d say it’s either your lens or technique. The D7200 has a great autofocus mechanism. The m43 bodies may hide problems with tracking due to a larger DOF at a given field of view.

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            It’s not a DoF issue that helps me.

            The D7200 is a fine body for motionless photos. The AF is just slow compared to micro Four-Thirds. Had I been using the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 instead of the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, the response might have been better but neither has been useful on extreme sports.

            Thankfully, I bought it for landscape work, not sports.

          • Mike Gordon

            You need to RTFM & buy some better glass, the D7200 is a fine sports camera. I use one for HS football without issues.

            How you cannot keep up with a bicycle is laughable.

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            Oh, the E-M1 and the Olympus fisheye did just fine for a number of frames.

            It’s the Nikon D7200 and the Tokina 11-16mm that didn’t.

          • Thom Hogan

            Try the equivalent lens: the 10.5mm fisheye.

          • Duncan Dimanche

            those lenses are not made for sports.. try the 24-70. because big apertures means big glass which means heavy glass which usually means slower AF. None of the fast primes are known to be “fast” at AF

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            I didn’t buy them for sports anyway. I just happened to try them while I was out. I wouldn’t expect that a 72mm or 77mm filter size wouldn’t be able to keep up since I was using 77mm filter sized lenses on Olympus equipment without missing a beat.

          • Duncan Dimanche

            Yeah it’s just that in general super wide lenses are not fast… So try an other fast lens on your d7200 and if it keeps being slow and not keeping track then you should send it to Nikon for a check.
            Cheers

          • Athanasius Kirchner

            I’ve had similar experiences to yours. My E-M1 tracks quite a bit better with MSC lenses than a Canon 6D with EF 24-105 f/4L I had. Of course, the 6D has a downright prehistoric AF module, and I have no experience with Nikon, but still, DSLR AF is overrated (except for the super high-end bodies).

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            It seems strange, doesn’t it? I use S-AF because tracking doesn’t work for me but I get the shots I want and too many of them are in sharp focus.

            Of course, with the Olympus E-5, E-M1, and Panasonic GH4, I have 3 of those “world’s fastest AF” bodies. 😀

            I really expected more and as someone else said, it’s probably the choice of lenses because I need wider, faster types.

          • Richard Haw

            sorry to say but the D7200 can keep up with my D4, maybe even better at moonlight. it’s definitely your choice of lenses.

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            Perhaps you are correct. As well rated as the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 is, I expected much more but then, I didn’t buy the body for my skate parks work anyway.

            Half the time, the D7200 won’t even take a photo at 10 in the evening, whereas the micro Four-Thirds products work steadily.

          • nwcs

            You may be the only person who believes that but that’s ok. As long as it works for you. 🙂

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            I’d love to see the D7200 work as well as the others for skate parks but thankfully, I didn’t buy it for that.

        • sperdynamite

          I’m not totally sure what this has to do with my comment. Are you talking about the frame rate? If you need a higher frame rate what I’m saying is that there are cameras that achieve that and that I don’t think a Pentax FF w/ a high res sensor necessarily needs to. i’ve always thought M43rds cameras would be a great choice for sport shooting.

          • Sakaphoto Graphics

            I’m one of those few who use the high frame rate, along with fast AF, to get sports shots that don’t happen with the 6fps that the D7200 gives me.

            I don’t understand why most people would need 6.5 fps to shoot flowers–maybe wedding parties–but it seems to be a number that measurebators like to see.

          • Jeffry De Meyer

            Not really, you want high shutter speed and long focal lenghts for sports m43 will start hurting on the noise department very quickly

          • sperdynamite

            There are m43 cameras that have high shutter speeds and it’s remarkably easy to achieve very long telephoto lenses. What’s more, their performance at ISO 3200/6400 is more than passible for press publication. What am I missing here? Not saying that the D5 isn’t a better camera for sports shooting, I know it is. But a top end olympus with a 300/2.8 can do a lot. If I were shooting the low end of sports, it might be worth a try. Or daylight automotive stuff.

      • Colin Francis

        I run out of buffer with my D7200 all the time when shooting action. It’s an improvement over the D7100, but nothing like my D300s was. I preordered a D500 specifically for this reason.

      • Thom Hogan

        Given the use of SD cards, I suspect that buffer clearing with raw files would be an issue at full frame rate.

    • nwcs

      More like a D800.

    • PHILIPPOS RAFTOPOULOS

      D810 does 5 fps. The much beloved 5DmkIII does 6fps.
      6.5 fps is not bad at all.
      Would anyone pay $5-6K for a 10+fps Pentax body? I seriously doubt it…

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    Wantses the precious

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    The higher frame rate compared to the D8*0/A7R might mean Pentax is using a newer version of the 36mp Sony FF sensor that might be 4K ready, will be really nice if Pentax goes all out and implements this, unlike Fuji who left that out of the X-Pro2 even though it shares a sensor and maybe even its processor with the 4K capable A6300. So basically it looks like Pentax is offering a better spec D810 competitor at a D750 price if the rumors are true. Hope they bring both their AF module and video IQ at least up to par to CaNikon levels, otherwise this will just be another body that only Pentaxians will like. The coming cheap Pentax branded Tamron f/2.8 zoom lenses are great bait, especially if Pentax pushes Tamron to up their quality control and specs them sharper than the normal Tamron products.

  • lovice .

    Anyone noticed the size of this new camera is actually smaller in terms of the height and width comparing to D610 and 6D (only the grip is deeper which is a good thing), which means this will be the smallest FF DSLR ever. Pentax did it again.

    • dbltax

      Roughly the same size by volume as the Df, maybe slightly larger thanks to the depth. Oh and nearly half a pound heavier than the Df, too. So no, it won’t be the smallest FF DSLR ever.

      • lovice .

        By weight DF is lighter (we don’t call weight smaller). However, by size it’s as tall but narrower than the DF. Since this new Pentax has a more conventional grip, its depth measurement can not be directly compared to the DF. Therefore, I would think this will be the smallest (not the lightest) FF DSLR ever.

        • dbltax

          Narrower by 7mm but the grip protrudes a further 19mm. The only reason a deeper grip would make sense would be to aid holding the greater weight. Plus the K-1 seems to have a much more bulky prism. Overall though, the size difference between the two appears negligible in real world terms, I mean how much difference is a few millimetres going to make when slinging a camera in your bag? Especially when you take lenses into consideration. In this instance though, I’m sure most photographers would appreciate a lower weight to a few millimetres shaved off the width. So I’m not entirely sure what Pentax did again…

          • Zos Xavius

            They packed more features in than the df for starters. Also it’s probably built like all their other flagship cameras: like a tank.

          • Thom Hogan

            They had an extra three years to pack ;~).

          • Zos Xavius

            True. These comparisons are meaningless. This camera takes my lenses, the df doesn’t. 🙂

          • Eddy Kamera

            Pentax DSLR grip is always deep. Always.

          • lovice .

            The reason df has a smaller grip is hardly because of its lighter weight. Even a mirrorless A7 II has a deeper grip, never mind all other Apsc DSLRs. Df’s small grip is due to its ‘retro’ design. Secondly, when a modern FF lense is fitted, 160g is hardly a problem. Otherwise, there’ll be no pros using any pro cams. In fact it will only help with the balance. Are you sure people will choose tiny grip, no video, plus less than half the pixels over narrower body, 160g heavier, full functions, the best grip in the class as Pentax always done, and not least latest high pixels sensor? I do think Pentax did it again with the smallest body packs the most functions.

  • Richard Haw

    glad to see pentax doing the full frame thing.

    • Jeffry De Meyer

      No point in keeping slr’s at aps size sensors.
      At some point they will start making AF sensors that cover the entire frame so the benefit the d500 has will be gone too

    • nwcs

      Not as much as they enjoy telling us about it.

  • AYWY

    My reservation is that Ricoh is treating the Pentax biz almost like it’s a weekend project they are only half interested in…

    • Kunzite

      Oh, really? Explain the new FF product line, then. Isn’t it way too much effort for a mere weekend project?

      • AYWY

        For a product that was first shown in Feb 2015, and still absent after one year, this isn’t a difficult deduction. The D500 is already delayed till April – let’s see if the delayed D500 manages to ship earlier than Pentax’s FF!

        Sony also released two A-mount lenses last year – doesn’t mean A-mount is going to see any life. Hey they even released a SLT A77 ii last year!

        Spend more time on Ricoh’s annual and financial reports. It’s like they don’t care. I’ll have more confidence if they at least mentioned something that sounds encouraging.

        • Kunzite

          You can deduce anything from anything, if sound logical reasoning based on facts isn’t how you do it.
          In Feb 2015, they said the camera will be announced by the end of the year. You’re trying to make the actual delay look several times longer than it is.

          Pentax didn’t merely release some lenses, they started launching an entire new product line. Development of a system (to a new market segment) and maintenance are very different things. Once again, you’re trying to paint an inaccurate image.

          Last but not least, Ricoh Imaging is a small part of a business group which is a small part of Ricoh Group. Of course they won’t be the hot spot of these financial reports and presentations.
          OTOH they’re mentioned – and that’s a top level executive speaking – so for a third time you’re presenting a wrong image.

          • Thom Hogan

            I think you’re missing the larger point: Pentax is getting to full frame eight YEARS after Nikon, over a decade after Canon. They’re getting to 36mp four years after Nikon. They announced early and leaked often to make sure that Pentax fans wouldn’t mistake them for dead.

          • Originaru

            I think you are a nikon fanboy that makes comments defending your beloved one, who has no defense for their latest behaviours in relation to the consumer, not buying nikon anymore for a long time btw.

          • Thom Hogan

            I think you have no idea who I am and what I write about Nikon ;~). I’ve been a strong critic of their customer behaviors for two decades, indeed, one of the strongest and most consistent critics in that respect.

          • BP2012

            We are not interesting who you are and what is your relation to Nikon, so please fuck off from Pentax rumors. You are just making noise here.

          • Thom Hogan

            The retort of a 13-year old boy who wants to cyber bully. This isn’t your site. I’m as free to post here as you. If you don’t like that, leave.

          • Originaru

            I dont care who you are, you are a human like everyone else, but have some kind egomaniac behaviour.

          • nwcs

            Lol, you should research who he is first.

          • John

            It’s just laughable claiming that Thom Hogan is a nikon fanboy…. you should read him, perhaps then you’ll be a better photographer instead of arguing over pointless things on the internet.

          • Thom Hogan

            Ah, the classic Internet poster ruse: charge one thing, then when confronted on that, call the person a name to try to change the conversation.

            If you want to go that route, accusing someone of being ego maniacal is itself ego maniacal. You seem to think your opinion of me is the correct one, and the only correct one. Not only that, you dismiss others (me in this case) to make your case. Ego maniacal.

            Funny thing is, your posts against me are in a discussion of whether Pentax is slow to market–follow the thread back to AYWY’s post, and the answers that I and others presented. Suddenly YOU jump in not to challenge any assertion about Pentax, but to attack me. That’s classic cyber bullying.

          • Originaru

            Do you know who i am is classic phrase of egomaniacs, by the way, almost each every single post of rumors sites i see your comments, filled with sarcasm and egomaniac behaviour, if you don’t feel like that, should try to re-read them. I don’t like pointing fingers, but i just got irritated with your behaviourrepeating itself again and again, maybe this moment you could stop to think about it, i will probably never ever try another conversation with you neither respond, and you probably don’t want or think you don’t deserve, and by the way, your site Best and worst cameras, you put A7r as the Best resolution, no sure if was a typo or not updated yet.
            To be sure, not the first time i talk to you in disqus and the other time i was very kind but you weren’t. Never did and will never do cyber bullying. Don’t like the classic case of victim too.

          • Thom Hogan

            You’re a piece of work. I responded to the original post. You only responded to me even being here responding, not to the original topic. That’s classic cyber bullying at its clearest, so maybe you’re the one that should be looking in the mirror.

            Asserting that someone should go away and stop providing their opinion is not a defensible position in an open forum, as far as I’m concerned. Just because I irritate you is not a reason to claim I should go away. You have no right to tell me to go away (and note I haven’t actually told you to go away, I simply identified what you’re doing as cyber bullying, which you seem to be in denial of).

            Thanks for pointing out that the Best/Worst page on sansmirror.com needs another update. With thousands of pages on my Web sites, it’s sometimes not possible for me to remember every page that needs to be updated when something new happens. However, this is another form of classic Internet attack behavior on your part: since you find yourself not getting a lot of traction on your original argument, you once again change the subject and now suggest that because I didn’t update a page on my site that I somehow must be inferior.

            Meanwhile, the topic still is how slow Pentax was to get to a full frame camera. Generally when people don’t like facts–and that Pentax is last to the DSLR market with full frame is a fact–they try to shoot the messenger. Which is what you’re trying to do.

            Good luck in the next Republican debate…

          • Kunzite

            Thom, is that for me, or for the Canon user?

            Ricoh Imaging announced they’re making a FF camera at the moment they introduced the new D FA lens line; so it was quite obvious a camera will follow, and they logically decided against letting us guessing when.
            The other decision they made was between holding on ready for market lenses and releasing them. The only reason to choose the former is secrecy; but being late in the game I guess that really wasn’t a factor.

          • AYWY

            Some Canikon users (including me) look at Pentax as the potential “disruptor” – the one that can show Canikon how to do things differently.

            But… Let’s refresh our memory. Ricoh bought Pentax in July 2011. The Sony Nex 5N just got announced in 2011 August. Nikon gave the world a 36MP FF camera in 2012.

            Every camera maker has made significant strides and accomplishments since 2011. But Ricoh… it’s like they are not trying. Finally a 36MP FF sensor…. in the same year when Nikon is expected to release the successor to their 36MP line.

            I went through Ricoh’s annual report and Japanese corporate site… thinking that maybe there is something that the English speaking world is missing. The most I’ve got is, “the camera business is a potential growth business” in a cursory sentence. No strategy. No forecast. No roadmap. No financial projection. What?! I’ve seen annual reports, and I recognize when a company is saying, “dear share holders, please ignore this.”

            Ricoh’s cam biz…. It’s so small that Ricoh could probably support it out of some honorary obligation. But whatever support is being given… Well it keeps the division alive. But it has not been competitive.

            (Ricoh got Pentax for cheap anyway: Hoya bought Pentax in 2007 for 1B, admitted that it was one of their worst strategic moves in history, then sold it to Ricoh in 2011 for… 124M.)

          • Kunzite

            A Canikon (which?) user, why am I not surprised?
            Again, posting half-truths in order to attack a competing system. Is Canikon so weak as to need such underhanded tactics?

            Ricoh and Hoya announced the deal in July 2011. The deal become effective in 1st October 2011, so there was no way Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company (how it was named then) would announce anything before that date.

            Let’s revisit the advancements made by Pentax/Ricoh Imaging since it started:
            – introducing the long lens previously promised, then canceled under Hoya – the DA 560mm (it covers FF, by the way)
            – introducing the long awaited 1.4x rear converter, again previously promised then canceled under Hoya
            – fixing the K-5’s AF
            – introducing the first medium format stabilized lens, then a second
            – the K-3, which made a significant step forward regarding the AF – its SAFOX XI being the first incorporating advanced tracking and subject recognition functions
            – introducing a new coating, breaking from their hallmark smc
            – introducing the highly successful 645z
            – introducing the high end 150-450, first of the new D FA lens line
            – announcing the 70-200, perhaps their most ambitious lens
            – very soon: introducing the K-1, their first FF DSLR (itself incorporating several advancements, or so it seems)

            As for the K-1’s timing, making such a camera should take about 3 years. They started sometimes in 2012, i.e. less than a year from when they took over Pentax. Which is not bad.

            Did you expect the Ricoh Group to publish their detailed strategy for every small business they own? That would make for a loooong presentation. Can you understand that what you see must only offer the big picture?
            Recently, I’ve found out that Ricoh was into the apparel business – with the announcement about divesting the San-ai business. I had no idea; there was no talk about it in the financial reports. Compared to that, Ricoh Imaging is highly visible.

            And in the end, yet another disinformation. Hoya took over the entire Pentax Corporation, they kept the medical division, stripped down other stuff and downsized the camera business significantly. What they sold to Ricoh was what was left from the initial Imaging Systems Business.
            Besides, the 124M figure was just some analyst’s estimation – it wasn’t confirmed, so it might very well be untrue.

          • AYWY

            Thanks for the information. Esteemed readers of the forums can see the information presented by both of us, and perform their own educated deductions about the state of Pentax under Ricoh. They can decide how significant Ricoh made a difference between 2011 till now, compared to the likes of Fuji, Olympus, Sony, Nikon, etc.

            (And yes there should be no surprise. Every user of a camera brand has expectations for the system they chose. If it isn’t living or progressing up to the standards of everone else, accepting is not helpful to existing and new users.)

          • Kunzite

            You mean, how a camera division which barely survived Hoya and had gone through an extensive reorganization did, compared to companies which haven’t gone through anything similar* – and you’re even including a top player like Nikon? The conclusion being, if Pentax Ricoh couldn’t keep up with said companies running at full steam, they’re “a weekend project”?
            Yes, esteemed readers should decide seeing such tactics.

            * Sony’s acquiring Konica-Minolta’s business was long ago, and they built on it instead of destroying.

          • AYWY

            O, so we agree Ricoh isn’t keeping up with everyone else all along. Ok. Thanks for clarifying for everyone. Lots of info for our audience

          • Kunzite

            My dear Canikon user, I’m merely describing Pentax’ situation as accurately as I can. I never did otherwise; you, OTOH…
            And now you’re trying to change the subject, which is such an obvious trolling tactic.

            I’ll remind you that what we’re discussing here is your claim that “Ricoh is treating the Pentax biz almost like it’s a weekend project they are only half interested in”. Which you state as a fact, yet it’s pure nonsense.
            I already disproved your claim by listing Pentax Ricoh’s accomplishments.

          • AYWY

            Nope, the subject has always remained the same, and our audience has the full thread to see themselves. “Ricoh is treating this like they don’t care”.

            It’s ok, we know labels of trolling, spreading misinformation and other accusations and attacks start racking up to distract from the subject and topic when there is less convincing information to share. Pretty common thing to see on the internets.

            So, switching from “Ricoh is treating the Pentax biz almost like it’s a weekend project they are only half interested in” to “Ricoh isn’t keeping up with everyone else all along” (which is disinformation, read below) is your way of switching to the subject?

            Let me ask you something (since it appears we’re playing for an audience): a Pentax Ricoh starting at a very low level but working hard to catch up (for example, by entering the FF market) really shows lack of interest?
            What is your standard of “being interested”? I’m expecting an impossible to meet target, or you avoiding the question altogether, but let’s give you the benefit of the doubt.

            And I’ll mention again some of their accomplishments:
            – entering the FF market (camera announcement pending – soon, very soon)
            – restarting presence with the long lens market, with the DA 560mm
            – going high-end with lenses – 150-450, 70-200
            – a most successful medium format camera – the 645z
            and so on.

            “Ricoh is treating the Pentax biz almost like it’s a weekend project
            they are only half interested in” to “Ricoh isn’t keeping up with
            everyone else” is pretty much the same thing, isn’t it?

            Glad to have an audience by the way. Enough information for everyone to make informed deductions.

            Even Sony managed to deliver 2 Zeiss-branded A-mount lenses and 2 SLTs in 2015 alone, for a camera line that everyone knows is defunct. The audience is intelligent enough to draw their conclusions from the information form both our point of views.

          • Kunzite

            What I’m claiming is that they’re doing their best at covering a pre-existing significant gap. They’re not losing ground, they’re recovering from the dire situation they were left in by Hoya. Entering the FF DSLR market is a clear sign of their intentions.
            What you’re attempting is called a strawman. And yes, I noticed that you failed to define what you mean by “interest”.

            Oh, “most readers are intelligent enough”… how about those who don’t automatically agree with you?

            I see on DPReview one SLT announced in 2015, the A68; and 2 lenses, updates of existing models. Pentax had 2 DSLRs (the K-1 should have been announced in 2015, too), and announced 4 lenses (1 announced but postponed for modifications, 1 Tamron rebadge). But this comparison is pointless – except for bragging rights and trolling.
            Once again you’re changing the subject, making it a quantitative race which ignore the realities of each company. And it’s your game, but you lose anyway.

          • AYWY

            Ah, ‘you lose I win’ huh. It’s OK – it’s cheap thrills. The public quite evidently agrees with my assessment judging from the irrefutable evidence of Pentax market share and sales data. Apparently people want hard evidence of action and results that actually matters.

            If Ricoh posts a FY report (yes it’s the time of the year!) with something encouraging I’ll reconsider my outlook. As of now I stick to the same – whatever Ricoh has been doing, it’s not good. I’ll stick to hard data.

          • Kunzite

            You decided to play games for an audience; don’t blame me for not being able to “win” them.

            Where is the “irrefutable evidence of Pentax market share and sales data”? I’m quite sure you don’t have such a thing, you just made it up on the spot.

          • AYWY

            This should be trivial – since you are obviously familiar with internet searches!

            https://www.google.com/search?q=pentax+2015+market+share+image

            If you are somehow happy with Ricoh’s progress, and somehow proud of Pentax’s 6.7% DSLR market sales in 2015’s BCN ranking in a market segment that is actually declining – well, feel free to be happy.

            The other 93.3% have chosen to interpret the reality in another way, and voted with their wallets.

          • Kunzite

            Google returns no result which could be considered “irrefutable evidence of Pentax market share and sales data” for Pentax not keeping up. You are deliberately trying to misinform; basically you are lying. You are also hoping that your audience won’t be bothered to check for themselves.

            Yes, BCNRanking’s data shows an increase from 4.5% to 6.7%. That’s an increase of almost 50% – and even considering the market decline, it’s still an increase.
            A 50% increase, does it mean they’re losing ground? That whatever they doing doesn’t work?

          • AYWY

            The Canon/Nikon/Pentax BCN ratio hasn’t really changed much in ten years… http://dslrbodies.com/newsviews/what-do-the-bcn-numbers.html

          • Kunzite

            Whatever. I’m tired of your silly games, Canikon user, and I’ve feed you for way too long.
            We’ll end this here, with your admission that Pentax grew its market share in their home market by 50%. And with you still claiming that’s a failure.

          • AYWY

            Cool, and thanks for providing the public with the helpful statistic that the 50% increment is a mere 6.7%. Well done. I hope other Pentax users have better expectations.
