Sorry, that's the robot in me poking through again ... I must try and restrict myself to pure creative and artistic expression.

I've heard it said many times that better Dr/ISO performance is not necessarily a given with such an increase in pixels within the same physical sensor space ?

I always thought it got slightly worse .. so if we could have the same sort of performance as the K-5II but on a 24MP sensor I would be quite happy.

It got a whole lot better with the K-5 though

Although nowhere as many additional Mp's packed into the same space. If K3 to K5 is as K5 was to K7 then I'll get one. Still hoping.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

I don't understand all the excitement about that AA filter though. There are countless posts proving removing the filter in the K5IIs resulted in precious little additional moire, and then how on the rare occasion it pops up it can be dealt with in pp. It is undoubtedly a nifty sounding piece of technology but surely one that most will leave permanently switched off.

I'm a bit sceptical about this - how do they get it to work at fast shutter speeds ?

says it's most effective below 1/1000s
