    Sorry what are we looking at? Those pictures seem to be back-to-front if the size of the green arrows is supposed to be important. Is the one on the right the new camera?

    According to Mistral

    “For instance the entrance to the AF sensor is wider than before (it goes closer to the borders), meaning that (i) the coverage of the AF points is wider (it further extends to the left and right) and/or (ii) the central AF points are more sensitive than those of the K-3 / K-3 II / K-1 / K-1 II (the rangefinder base is larger). See the comparison below. The angle of shooting is not exactly the same (it’s higher for the K-3 II) but the outcome is unambiguous.”
