Took along my Tamron SP 500mm f8 (manual focus mirror lens from the 1980's) while walking the dog this morning. Had to detect the eye all by myself. Oh dear. What is next? I'll have to make horizons level all by myself too?
 
MLCs have eye detect to compensate for not being able to find the eyes through the EVF   ....... every shot is a wonderful surprise ........ Smile

Your eye detection algorithm is pretty good, even better than Sony's [Image: biggrin.png]

Can't decide which reply is funnier  Big Grin

Of course, I did not take a walk with that 500mm f8 to take portraits of the dog, in case anyone was wondering about that. And I should have taken the Tokina 500mm f8 instead, it would make more sense in this Pentax thread...

 I thought that was the most doughnut free background I'd ever seen from a mirror lens ......... !!!

The review in dpreview is quite positive. Looks like a good camera that keeps the K-mount alive for the next years.
Ok, 2k € is a bit too much. Maybe this leaves room for a cheaper and simpler model below the K3.
For me this moves the decision to switch to mirrorless to the right.

Well as always these bodies are designed for people who are 'locked' into the system via lenses and accessories already owned. Naturally for a new consumer I think it would be a mistake to buy this camera no matter the quality. So if you do not already have an investment in lenses and such then yes one of the newer solutions is probably a better option.

If the price is what is needed to keep Pentax alive then it seems little point in charging less .........
  Low noise ........ fast AF and 11-12 Fps etc ....... Achilles heal is the buffer at 25 frames ...... 
  ....... all in all very good ....... what Pentax should have done in the DSLR's heyday ......

The buffer is not 25 frames, not usually. It should be ~32 frames for RAW.
Did he had crop mode activated? There's a video which measured 35 frames for RAW and 25 for RAW with 1.3x crop:

Dpreview quoted 25 frames and I doubt they were testing it using crop mode ........ however in this video he was shooting into a single card slot ........ maybe that gives the extra frames ....... 32 frames is certainly a lot better !!
