Thematic: Uh oh. Very disappointing image quality.
I was praising this camera because 2 friends own it and said the picture quality was as good as the FF Nikon D750. These pictures, and the RAWs they sent me are underwhelming.
At the end of the say its a tool for speed and the 1.5x crop people need but I can't image anyone shooting portraits, fine art, macro, landscape, architecture etc using this over a cheaper Pentax K-1 or the Nikon D750.
As for the price people are complaining about - No issue with me there, Pentax is the value champ but the Nikon mount is great for their lineup and Zeiss Milvus options.
Next up is Sonys a9 and the Canon 5DMK4.
that's jpeg? I just tried the raw myself very quickly this is what i got.
check out the original:
Wonderful image quality.
this looks like a big seller to me and a really good camera.
Robert Garcia NYC: Please let Rishi shoot the samples. :)
oh I didn't know. :)
Please let Rishi shoot the samples. :)
boinkphoto: Looks remarkably like the Fuji X-E2...
looks like a rangefinder style camera to me.
This is a lot of camera for the price.
That sensor coming to a Sony AXX near you. :)
wow, files are great.
18 50 sounds interesting I would like to see some samples.
Keeper78: Beautiful grain.Love it
KrisAK: So, on the Kinsey scale of Canon-Nikon color, where does Pentax sit?
Raws look different to me compared to lets say the Sony. I'm liking the this Pentax better so far.
Take a look and download. To me it looks really great. Color, contrast & resolutions it's all there.
Hold on no need to wait around folks they are DNG files. I'm checking out the raws now.
I've been checking out the jpegs so far and I love the image quality. Looks excellent.
Wow, Pentax is not playing around.
Robert Garcia NYC: the Leica Q is has the best lens sensor combo followed very closely by the Ricoh GR II in raws.
I only looked at GRII, Leica Q, Sony RX1Rii, Fuji X100T, etc. niche cameras.
Overall, you're right it can't. But for the it's pretty good. I'm just looking at the lens here.
I haven't had a problem with the battery to be honest. But, wow for $550 thereabouts it matches very closely to a $4,250 camera. Ricoh has one of the very best lenses out there for this type of camera. I can just imagine the next one hopefully they use the copper wire thingy from Sony.
