    Nice one from pentax...

    The sensor seems pretty much the same, maybe slight improvement on the specs...
    the iso performance maybe better, but if low light AF is still poor, iso good also no use
    new grip...hehe... but still put 1 batt at least can put AA which is good
    fps gone up, shutter speed gone up, buffer also gone up... good for events shooter, birds, cars, planes... hopefully the "improved" AF can keep up else not much use anyway...

    all in all... swee... hehe...

    but not for me though ... since i shoot XMM , flowers and the occasion lousy singapore scenery

    since still using samsung sensor... im pretty sure there will be a samsung version for this...

    My exact sentiment on its AF. Its has got to be fast & accurate else FPS is useless. Nothing on BF & FF compensation here...

    Bulky? If RiceHigh's specs are accurate, I compared with a Nikon D60 and it is only 0.1inch higher and wider. Although it is 0.4inch deeper and a good 200g+ heavier with battery. I wouldn't consider it bulky for a DSLR. What is your benchmark? Can't be the K20D right, since it is bigger than the K-7.
