A workaround might also be avoiding these shutter speeds. One could argue that the K-3iii does not directly support electronic shutter, and it's not certain they'll add that feature in a future firmware (they did that for the K-1); but there are alternatives.

Then best to leave the shot in as is....so the regular user will also know what shutter speeds to avoid. Take it out of the studio comparison and the masses may not notice so not pick up on the "workaround" you suggest

First, that wasn't what they did for the D780.

And it may not be what they do for the Pentax final review. I would note from the D780 review they said "Noticeable shutter shock at focal lengths beyond 85mm when shooting at slower shutter speeds (~1/30s). Upping your shutter speed or using the camera's 'Quiet Mode' with EFCS on can avoid this" I would hope they point out similar for the Pentax if that is the case

Second, there's a serious downside: DPReview would hide the K-3iii's maximum image quality (that is, its image quality in good light at ISO 100).

Are you suggesting a review site should hide potential downsides?

The place to tell us which shutter speeds to avoid is in the review,

And they might do that...we'll have to see

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
