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.

You're free to check all posts I made about this announcement and let me know how many of them are negative and biased.

I did not discredit anything and my first post criticizing the camera was a response to someone above talking about how this is a D810 with IBIS and some other cool features which you and I both know it is simply not true, and it can be seen from the price point. The response was fair, not overly negative, with as little subjectivity as possible but here you are, the pentax knight in shining armor, slaping on the wrist whoever says something negative about your brand.

Ntz ntz.

I also used other pentax cameras, newer, older, but nevermind. Nikon's layout is customizable so you don't have to change hands if you don't want to, not that you would know this. Newer nikon cameras even have the ISO buton in the right side :)

Oh, now you remember the SR failure conversation, how quaint :) I'm sure that if you try hard, you'll remember the second one too.

Any other past conversation and argument you want to bring up to discredit me and use faux arguments in the conversation, to complete your usual strawman techniques ?

gskolenda: I would like to see all the newer Camera platforms that are plus 30 MP, have USB 3.0 instead of USB 2.0 These files are large and take time to move them.

It's not like USB 3.0 is new.

They had to make it as cheap as possible, 1800 dollars mean that some cost cutting had to be done. Plus, Pentax was never a big fan of tethering.

I wasn't bashing, I was formulating an opinion different to yours. To you, a Pentax ambassador, that is bashing, but not to everyone else.

The pentax ergonomics are quite inferior, I say this as a former pentax owner.

I know of two SR failures and you know of them because we were discussing one about a month ago, another one 1-3 years ago, on the thread you run. Memory trouble ?

You don't need to hold the lens with your left hand and work the controls with only the right unless you shoot 300 2.8 lenses all day. All other lenses are easily held by the camera as you change controls and it's much faster with tho hands than one and more natural. If going into menus to select the white balance or other important camera settings and scrolling with the back wheel to zoom into the image is your idea of good ergonomics than I rest my case.

So small and heavy is better than big, with big grip and many buttons, but lighter ?

Actualy this will be quite far from the D810. The AF will not be up to that standard, the ergonomics of the pentax are really lacking, all operation on the right hand and you have to go thru menus for stuff you just press button+wheel on the D810, you lack the vast nikon lineup, the nikon flash sistem in and outside the camera. Plus, looking at K3II vs D7200 you see just how much Nikon extracts from the sony sensors compared to Pentax, and there will be the same here.

And I'm sorry but I don't want IBIS in my camera. It's poor for video, you don't see the stabilised image in the viewfinder, and it's something that can go wrong crippling the camera, and I know of two cases where Pentax IBIS was faulty.

Who is using the camera's USB port to transfer files, seriously ? I own DSLR's for 8 years now and I have used the camera's USB port like 5 times ever.

guyfawkes: How often do we find that the small players show the big guys how to do it?

The spec looks extremely interesting and if it competes in the IQ stakes, it looks like Pentax could have a winner on its hands. I'm not in the market for a dslr in any shape or form, but if I was, the Pentax could be up there with the rest of them. I have no Pentax prejudices.

Just wait for the reviews before getting really enthusiastic.

DukeCC: Love the pressure on Canikon!
Go Pentax, Go Samsung, Go Sony!

Samsung dropped the camera business it seems, Pentax is a shadow of a former self and Sony is indeed putting some pressure.

The pressure comes from Sony, Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic rather than Pentax and Samsung.

Looking at the specs I realized that this is the 645Z in a 35 mm format.

I get it that it has all these interesting features but the only new thing about this is the handheld super res mode, all the other features already exist on various other cameras, some for years now.

It is my opinion that this is a nice camera, a 645Z miniature, I was just baffled by the "REAL technical progress" that someone was mentioning.

sportyaccordy: Jesus Christ. $1800? IBIS and weather sealing? Shame on you Canon! Shame on you Nikon!

Go and get one and you'll understand why Canon and Nikon charge as much as they do.

tinternaut: On the one hand, it's lovely, because it seems to do what Pentax does; puts the photographer first. OTOH, is this the Pentax equivalent of the Olympus E-5? A stop gap and an option for owners of older lenses?

That's simply not true. You have 40 year old Nikon Ais lenses outresolving modern sensors.

GinoSVK: Pentax can do a new 70-200mm F2.8 lens with reasonably good price, because not needs a image stabilizer.

Sorry Correction:
Pentax D FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW no have IS...

That's a Tamron, and so is the 24-70 and so is the 15-30.

BebuLamar: A very nice camera but please don't say that this is one of the camera the Df should have been. Nikon knew what people like me wanted and created a camera for us. We wouldn't want it otherwise.

The DF is larger than it should have been, this is thicker still, with a complicated screen. This is definitely not what the DF should have been, the A7R2 is what the DF should have been, but with a mirror instead.

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.

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

User9362470513: Or you could buy a Sigma DP camera, get incredible IQ with similar handling quirks, and use the spare to buy a new car...

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