  • I would suppose size is the reason. After the enthusiast buy a fast, big, heavy lens, they will go back and buy another, slow one 'for hiking'.

  • This situation is similar to what olympus four-thirds users experienced. If I was in a market for a new camera without many lenses, I would probably switch. If you are not in the market and your...

  • That 24mm F2.8 is very tempting. If it is as good as 50mm F1.8 II it will probably sell quite well.

  • Is the focal length 10.9mm-34mm as written on the lens? Then the sensor is a bit smaller than four-thirds to make it 24-75mm.

  • This ergonomics actually looks pretty nice. Maybe it has a bit worse sensor than other brands, but it looks like a very capable camera.

  • Olympus four-thirds forum can provide guidance and support. We have had a lot of experience waiting for the E-7, some still believe it will happen.

  • Well, if you can live with using the sigma primes when you need something fast then you could try the Pentax K-3. They use the same sensors as Nikon have pro-grade shutter, weather sealing etc etc.

  • It probably makes sense to them since their sales look good. It seems that smaller companies innovate more these days.

  • Fun fact: $400 Pentax K-500 has 1/6000 maximum shutter, so it can't that expensive to include a faster shutter. Either Nikon thinks the one they used is more durable, or better in this case, or...

  • It caught my attention too, although the whole camera seems a bit pricey.

  • Basically you wish it was a Pentax K-3 ;). Minus the flash sync it is not that great on K-3 either.

  • I think those are pretty cool. More interesting and different than common shots of birds landing, tigers or grizzly bears.

  • I think we (ie olympus users) have been spoiled with the quality of glass, so I think it was not a bad move to focus on optical quality. That being said, the 14-42mm IIR and M.Zuiko 40-150mm F4-5.6...

  • I think we (ie olympus users) have been spoiled with the quality of glass of classic four-thrids, so I think it was not a bad move to focus on optical quality of 14-42 EZ. That being said, the...

    Spiritual successor of K-01.

    D1NO, it will be $499 soon enough. Ricoh has been annoucing high MSRPs and dropping them quickly with the recent models.

    My guess is it will sell well to highschoolers in Japan, a country which is their main market.

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    they will probably announce more traditional K-S1.5 as well.

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    "one of the most confounding questions about the K-S1 is why it's priced higher than the K-50"

    Because the street price will be a lot lower. I bet it will sell for $500 within a couple of months.

    I was skeptical with this design, but those are good features. Given that these LEDs can be turned off and do have utility, I am actually finding myself want to try it out.

    One thing that still...
