Re: WHO says that they have a "full production" unit ?-- not the author!

this interesting.
i noticed the permutations but didn't realise the significance.

This claim to have a "full production" or alternately "full firmware" is also made as part of an obvious "Get Googles Attention" scheme -- popular wisdom has long been that Google ranks words in links higher than regular text. See how the editor tries out different possible search combinations in the links below instead of more sensibly sticking with one way of saying it:

article says > ?> ?> The long-standing Nikon D300, for example, has a 51-point AF system that sounds frightfully better - at least on paper.

Why does 51-point AF sound better than 77-point AF ?

you say 77 point autofocus. you may have gotten that from this comment in the article:
...utilising 77 metering segments .. for improved autofocusing

the Pentax don't got 77 focus points.
the inaccuracies make for misleading conclusions.
this is why the article is dangerous.

although, in this case, the confusion worked to Pentax advantage if it appears they have 77 focus points...
