  • [Electronic shutter] can be selected.
  • When [Electronic Shutter] is selected, a high-speed shutter of fastest speed 1/16000 sec. is supported.

Thank you, Pentax .. but please be more concrete about the changes and improvements.

What does this mean:

"Improved stability for general performance"?

Does it mean we'll get any AF improvements? Is writing speed now faster to a card in the slot 1? Is the problem of corrupted files on fast cards resolved? Any improvements to menus and settings?

Do I really need to spend hours testing everything to figure out what was improved?

It would be good to know what the Pentax engineers are working on! Why not to tell us? Don't be afraid to admit that some stuff was imperfect!
