Sad news from Photokina 2010

http://www . html


  • The sensor of the K5 ids good! It is probably about 2 EV better than the K20/K7.

  • AF is not faster with SDM lenses. I have tested this.

  • It was shooting 7 RAWs in a row.


  • very nice built

  • nobody at Pentax knew what DC means

  • AF is ok.


  • no colored ones outside of Japan


  • no tele above 500mm. It's not possible for Pentax. Unprofitable.

  • no info on other lenses

  • FA Limited are discontinued

  • no FF in sight, definitely not in 2011, probably also not in 2012.

  • perhaps there will be a 3rd party grip for the Kr.

  • the high prices are defined in Japan. Pentax outside of Japan cannot change them.

  • the market in the USA/Canada is a nothing to Pentax, only France and Germany count besides Japan.
