I should clarify my post though, just in case: I'm not saying the D7100 is a bad camera, I think it's very good; just that Nikon (and not only them) moved to a higher pixel count before the technology was ready, with a slight decrease in image quality (mostly at high ISO).

Is this something you know, or something you guess or assume ?

Neither but something in between; as I said, there was a rumor about Pentax having image quality (cross talk) issues with the sensor which was supposed to go in the K-3, earlier this year. Lenses like the FA Limiteds performed poorly - though I don't know what this meant, it was unacceptable for Pentax.

It's plausible, because the "old" 24MP APS-C sensors have issues. It would be even more plausible, if Pentax will announce something on 7-8th October.
