Re: Maede-style Marketing BS belied by the Pentax K-5 II w/ -3 EV, 11pt./9 cross-type

I think they still expect that customers only see boxes on the focusing screen and that they accept any techno babble. I wonder if we get to see the actual 6D AF sensor picture in the review.

This is just a Maeda-type excuse-making akin to the 5D2 "too large AF sensor to fit" excuse they made to recycled the primitive 5D1 AF. Pentax, on an APS-C camera, has proven you can make a -3 EV capable AF module with more than 1 cross-type AF pt. The K5 II in fact has 9 of its 11 pts. as cross-type.
