Manah: This review is FRUSTRATING and unprofessional.A camera whose lens is too short to be used to take portrait shots should not be on the market and really - should not even be reviewed.
They shouldn't review wide angle lens either! Bad DPReview!!
Chuck Norris would have reviewed the camera anyway!
SantaFeBill: I admit I'm not much into video, but still ... U.S.$900 for the camera, then another $5000 for a TV to view my badly done amateur 4K videos (since there is yet no 4K broadcast content in the U.S. - heck, HD TV here is still 1080i or even 720, not 1080p.) Plus of course 4K-enabled video editing sw and a monitor that would give some idea of what the 4K video looks like. Plus a computer or at least a graphics card/CPU upgrade.
For that amount of $$$, I could get a great FF DSLR plus a very good lens, probably two.
I'm sure I'm missing something ... . Just not sure what it is. :-;
See a doctor pronto!
Almeida: According with the exif these were taken with a Canon 5D.
Anyway, any idea what was the camera?

LWW: I'm a firm believer in that if you have nothing positive to say - say nothing.
No reply in 5 hours. How ironic!
Jogger: Just wait 14hrs for the Sony RX100m3 with 24-70/1.8-2.8 equiv. lens. Same size as the RX100m2.
It's a rumour that will be true tomorrow.
David Hurt: I buy my stuff from B&H Photo - since around 1984. ZERO problems ever. 'nuff said.
Galbertson: Will pentax 645 and 67 film lenses adapt to this body?
Page 2 of the hands-on, 2nd paragraph.
(...) we were surprised to see that the 645Z's shutter is actually quieter than the one on the Sony A7r.
T3: So whatever happened to all those yahoos who believed that the key to better high ISO performance was MORE pixels and HIGHER pixel density?
The focus in this case is video. It only has 12mp so it can just read the whole sensor, without the need to use line skipping to get the video. All things equal, pixel size should be irrelevant to the amount of noise in images with the same size.
Almeida: Are people buying these crop cameras?
I see I was a bit too subtle. :)
Are people buying these crop cameras?
Cane: DO websites absolutely have to do April fools stuff every year?
It generates traffic...
tkbslc: I'd suspect most would find the 14mm f2.5 to be just as useful, slightly wider and much cheaper and compact.
m4/3 is already overcrowded in the wide-normal prime department. Not sure why we needed this one.
Because it's one stop faster.
Craig from Nevada: "As we're working towards finishing our full in-depth review of Ricoh's Pentax K-3, we've decided to publish pages of the review that are complete so far instead of making you wait."
The public has waited 6 months.
This is just throwing a something out there in an attempt to rescue DPReview's credibility rather that an honest effort to review a fine camera for the public to consider (read other reviews).
Don't send partial drafts out.
Yes this is so sad. I've been shooting with a pinhole for the past 6 months. No way I'm buying a K-3 until DPreview finishes this review!
qwertyasdf: Since it's posted on DPR, I can only see barrel distortion in the second picture.
You seemed to have missed his point.
fenceSitter: "50 Mpixel CMOS sensor with almost twice the physical size of the largest 35 mm DSLR sensor."
On which planet are 1.67 "almost 2"?
Hey it's closer to 1 than 2 right? :D
SDPharm: Here's my question: take an identical scene with this new Hassy and a Nikon D800, process them to the best one can, then print each to a reasonable size, say, 5 ft wide. Then hang them in a gallery with controlled lighting. Will I be able to tell which one is which when viewing them from a comfortable viewing distance of 3-5 ft?
You could also throw a Nokia 1020 in there just for fun. I would like to see that blind test.
