    Woohooo!! Nice... Go Pentax. Perhaps this ol'Pentax shooter can return to using a pentax sometime soon... maybe....

    On the other hand... I guess it is a safe assumption that the digital 645 is pretty much dead. Bummer.

    3FPS though... They should have gone to at least 5. Great images though.

    Can you give a comparison between the K10D and the K20D, any real major changes besides the new CMOS sensor?

    What for? Honestly 3FPS is already a lot, this mean 333 ms between each photo, there is probably only photo journalist that need more, and they can go for the 1D that are far far more expensive...
    Or use the 1.6Mpixel option @10fps, anyway, it's far enough to put crappy pix in a news paper :p

    For still Photography, there is no need to very high FPS... the best option is always to shoot in the right time. So, fast and accurate AF, reponsitive shutter...
    Both canon and pentax are nice for that, but certainly not with the canon ****ty kit lens ;) You need USM on Canon... and, on Pentax, is there any supersonic AF system ?
