This is for Nikon. So, you expect us to buy this camera and still carry around our camcorder for videos. We know you market this camera as a "Pure Photography" camera, but common, we can still use a camera that has a video function as "Pure Photography", and then switch that button for "Pure Videography" too. Really dumb marketing Nikon.
halai: DPR, you forgot to mention "NO VIDEO" as a con. I was looking forward to purchase this camera, then found there is no video function. It would have been a perfect camera for me. Oh well, will save my money for something else.
With these days and age...YES. It is almost consider a cripple camera without video. For people like me to love take pictures and record videos of family and friends. Not to mention wedding photographers who records clips of the couple walking down the aisle.

Bloody hell ugly!!! I really don't know what's the big deal about apple products that people are so crazy about? I'm willing to bet you, if apple came out with a triangle phone tomorrow, there will be million of people waiting in line for that damn thing, and rave how awesome it is.
I do agree with most posters here that this is not even an upgrade, but i do understand why Canon is doing this. Why fix something that is not broken? At the end of the day, there're still lots of soccer moms and beginners who buys this camera just for the Canon logo.
Same old crap like "The Fast and the Furious". I hear that they are making #7 soon since they still racking in the $$$.
If only they throw in a louis vuitton or chanel handbag, I bet you all the ladies will be all over it. But then again, they will keep the handbag and throw this cam in the trash can.
As an owner of the K-5, I would like to see the AFC comparison of the two cameras. I have kids so would love to see if Pentax improved on this segment.
halai: DPR, am I seeing it correctly? High ISO at 6400 on D800 and D600 is worst than D700 in raw file? Not that I shoot that high in ISO, but thought it was weird to see that.
Thanks Marike6! I will check out DxOMark sensor tests

I like the idea that Pentax is keeping at 16mp. For most people, this is more than enough. If AF-C anywhere near the Nikon D700, I will upgrade my K-5 in a heart beat, and Pentax will hit a home run out of the park. A lot of Pentax users including myself are waiting for this. If it's slightly better than the K-5, I will past and continue to use my K-5 until it dies. In the meantime, I will get the D600 when it comes out to replace my D700.
I primarily shoot Nikon but I have to say this is the best camera at this price range. I don't even think the soon release Nikon D5200 and Canon T4i can't even touch this. Really love the design and all weather sealing at $850, SICK!!! I think Pentax will hit a home run with this camera. Also, I like the fact that Pentax kept at 16mp instead of 24mp or even higher like other companies are doing. Why? To be honest, how many people really need higher than 16mp??? I know I know... there will always some people, but seriously what is the percentage of that?
