Looks perfect to me
In reply to ogl, Sep 10, 2012

The K5 was already close to perfect. It looks like Pentax took the major shortcomings of the K5 and fixed them:

1) Better AF

2) Better rear LCD screen (the rear LCD screen on the D7000 was way better than the K5 one).

I am happy they didn't change the body which is already perfect.

Does it have more AF points? I find 11 to be too few and far in between to choose the appropriate focus AF (eg portraits) where focus and recompose would not work.

My other major gripe was that the focus points were not visible (until the shutter was half pressed). I want to know where the AF points are before I hit the shutter so I can put the focus point where I want during composition.
Are the focus points visible?
