bugsy46: Runs off to see if any Nikon price drops.........

Nikon is going thru tough times and is certainly not going to drop any prices because pentax released a camera. They aren't doing it because of Canon and Sony, so definitely not going to do it over a Pentax.

agaoo: Why not 4K? :-(

Pentax has never been at the top of the heap when it comes to video. It seems their tech and their SR are not top notch when it comes to video. I don't actually think they care that much for video.

Nuno Souto: Well done, Pentax/Ricoh. Good to see some REAL technical progress in the dslr field, instead of the usual Canikon shake-rinse-and-repeat.

What progress, the low price ? What's special about this camera ?

BigOne: No wooden grip? That's not a real Hasselblad!

Or at least a Lunar one.

The DP3's image quality and practicality reminds me of the Kodak DCS Pro14n that I shot a good few years back.

I have watched Sigma DP reviews and I have seen a gallery of pictures taken with the products, so I'm far from being ignorant on the matter.

I think it's hilarious that you're comparing a 15 megapixel, fixed 75 mm lens compact camera that's slow to focus and is best used at base ISO, with VGA video resolution to a medium format camera like this Hasselblad.

It's mildly put if I say that the DP range has been unconvicing.

It shows in its huge popularity.

Sigma DP is horrible.

J A C S: Pretty bland for 50mp MF. The castle shot is a bit lacking in detail, sharpened or not. The horse shot is fine, not counting the blown highlights.

#10 has very pleasant colors.

The castle shot is very sharp in the sharpened version.

BobYIL: Canon 5DS R with 17, 24, 45 and 90mm TS-E lenses still cost a fraction of this 100MP back..

True but the stitching argument can be applied to the phase one camera as well.

And if we go and compare IQ of that canon 50mp sensor to the phase one ...

My D750 costs even less and for price/performance it can't be beat. But it doesn't have medium format lenses, 100 megapixel full format medium format, and so on. It's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Mondeo.

nicolaiecostel: Why buy the Otus ?

Judging from the samples, this 85 looks pretty damn perfect as well.

The G master sounds like a pubescent boy's nickname on a 90's internet chat room.

And yeah, so much for small lenses.

JonB1975: So... it's backwards compatible with the batteries from the 1 DX... but apparently the charger isn't. What happens if you want to part-ex your 1DX for a mark II??? Keep your charger? Nobody will want the camera without the charger....

I dunno, maybe buy a charger ..

Sdaniella: full res FF stills @ 16fps in LIVEVIEW mode with zero blackouts ... allowing one to follow fast moving subjects ... that's nice!!! (what video has always been able to do: no blackouts whatsoever during capture)

now, all we want is a mirrorless FF dcam offer it as well.

No blackout as in electronic shutter ? Electronic shutter as in rolling shutter effect ? That's the big issue with video ..

And for all I care, video is to be shot at a certain exposure time, double the framerate, as in 30 fps = 1/60 exposure time. Try capturing frames from a 1/60 exposure video. Sure, you can use a different exposure time but then you get jittery video made just for capturing frames. This is why we still rely on these "dinosaurs", because they work.

nicolaiecostel: Interesting to see that these pictures are not high rez, yer the DPR gallery did not stretch them like the ..umm.. pictures on some other recent thread.

On the contrary, not a fanboy at all, at least not of Pentax. But it is interesting to see that the stretch has not been applied here.
