K3 sensor toshiba...
5

Apparantly the administrator on the "other" forum got confirmation, that the K3 is built around the toshiba 24mp (also found in the nikon latest Apsc cameras), even though Ricoh's website mentions a "brand new" sensor. Many won't care who made the sensor, as long as measurable IQ is good, but I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed that it's not a really brandnew Sony 24mp chip. I really, really like the look and IQ of the K5IIs sony sensor, and to be frank, I'm not really that enthusiastic about the nikon D7100 look at all. It's not just about noise, but the images often miss the "film-like" look of the K5(IIs). So even though the Toshiba measures OK, I was really hoping for a latest generation Sony sensor to fit this otherwise absolutely cracking Pentax release....
