... the Kodak CCD sensor that we have selected, just like all the other MF sensors available today for that matter, do not currently enable Live view. We hope that possible future CMOS based MF sensors would be able to lift this limitation.
While I'd like to think that we could all just relax, and think long-term like this "possible future", what is true is these cameras are now leapfrogging each other like mad now. The newer Canons both now shoot at 60 frames per second in video, for awesome slow motion effects, so now, the 5d2 is already outdated. The way that sentence is constructed above, it's like this new Pentax has all the time in the world to evolve, (and for that matter, even leave Japan).
I don't know what is worse: Hasselblad having that silly Countdown Clock, or Pentax announcing a camera in the English language, that's not even available outside of Japan.
As John Wayne said in "True Grit" -- "we're burning daylight".
I hereby announce to all my clients, that in May of 2011, I'll shoot some really nice new photographs for my book, so make sure and stay tuned. Don't make any commitments to any other photographers until then!
I know the word of the day is "constant and everpresent promotion", but at the same time, you wonder when you creep into the territory of "The Boy That Cried Wolf". There was a girl in my High School that had these similar qualities -- always promising, promising, promising, but never quite delivering, delivering, delivering.
