Personally I think DPR have some discussions with Ricoh about issues they found, like the shaking shutter. They might give the manufacturer the opportunity to do some firmware fixes before finalizing the final review. Reviewing Pentax gear is a delicate challenge with all those brand loyal followers like us...

DPR found shutter shock on many other cameras, and that didn't prevent them from reviewing those.

Now that the firmware 1.10 (with the electronic shutter option) is available, I see no reason to delay it. Except DPR's own resources and the availability of the camera.

Will Ricoh Imaging further improve things through firmware updates? Most certainly. Maybe enough to require a re-testing of various things. But, wait too long for a review and it would be useless.

I prefer to give them enough time to figure the new features . Un cooked conclusion will harm the camera sales!


You're way more optimistic than me.

I do not think they will spend enough time to figure the camera out.

I think they will push the AF until it fails, and possibly misuse it (see the Release Priority used for the K-1ii).

I think the camera is a DSLR and a Pentax, so a few cons are automatic. Heavy for its size?
