Nope. That was the Gamma Duflex. True, but Topcon had already produced an open-aperture TTL metering system, so that's not much claim to fame. Wow. That's some claim to fame. Absolutely not true. SMC coatings were not unique to, or developed by, Pentax. They were one of two fruits of working together with Carl Zeiss when Zeiss were looking for a partner to make Contax cameras. They eventually rejected Pentax as not being experienced enough in electronics, but left them the K bayonet and the SMC coating - which was just a rebranding of their T* coating. Yeah, think that one's true. Apart from Minolta... Possibly true, but left far behind by Nikon and Canon, the latter having been first to all the recent milestones. Yup. And what did they do with that first? They very quickly lost their lead, and their earliest AF SLRs were absolute dogs. No. That was Konica. They made the first compact to do so, though. Talk about clutching at straws! Quite a nice feature, for sure. Hmmm.... Well now that's not exactly what happens, is it? There''s a clue in the word "simulator". Good stuff, though. I think if you look at them overall, yes, they've been behind in almost everything for a long time. That doesn't mean their cameras are no good, and I'm sure their FF effort will be great - but it's staggeringly unlikely to make people with lots of money tied up in lenses change.
