The EOS-M is a lifestyle camera. The idea is to have fun.

And the price is actually reasonable!

The real challenge. Don't rush the production. Make sure quality is as good as possible. Pentax doesn't want an "issue." I think they understand that.

DPReview will have to invent a Platinum Award.

CaMeRa QuEsT: Hope all this and the K-1's selling numbers are compelling reasons enough for Sigma to port all their ART lenses to K mount, that on itself will be a real boost for K-1 sales, at least that will convince me to get a K-1.

Exactly. Pentax and Sigma should formally partner. But pride ... K-1 needs a distinguished, "signagture" lens series.

Gesture: Slides don't make sense?

But one nice thing. I can buy 3 Pentax K-1s for the cost of a Canon EOS01D X Mark II and have money left over for a lens.

Good points. But it's a shame photography has become like that. Take a thousand shots and pick the 3 good ones. Interesting, back in the film days, pros would say, we don't need autoexposure, autowind, autofocus, etc., but eagerly be the first adopters.

Actually, I thought folks would say the value of the Canon is the lens inventory and professional support network.

Gear in this story. Why not post links to Photoshop and computers?

Wonder what happened to the GearShop?

Gesture: What do loyal D300/s owners think of this upgrade. I can only go by what I see on screen. But the D300 always impressed me with its continuous tonality. Was I deceived or was the D300/s one of Nikon's finest achievements. Thanks.

Sometimes the undefinable is still understandable, as some posters have.

James Benet: The K1 Pixel Shift mode is a game changer for landscape and studio imaging in a controlled environment. The modest increase in resolution mentioned is more than that, the quality is as if you had a Foveon FF sensor with 4:4:4 quality.

The camera is great in normal mode as well, this is the Pentax camera that really brings the best image quality possible before jumping to Medium Format. Although pixel shift is MF like in it;s quality. It is a bargain and a must buy for Pentax enthusiasts.

Cons: Wish it had 4k video besides timelapse mode.

And being brought in at an attractive price!

Great notes. So few have tried to expand the sensor array (Fuji, Foveon). Reminds of film days, the mixed size grains of conventional films and the "every grain is exactly alike" T-Max films.

Please-a more real-world testing scheme-that has some artistic quality.

Zdman: More bait from DPreview. Catching up on one metric which means very little to those using the camera (you don't buy one for Landscape). Of course the Canon kills the competition on other metrics which is why its the best selling but even then its closest competition does worse on this all important DR metric so that means its actually ahead of its competition in every respect. You may say you're unbiased but I've yet to hear someone accuse this site of being Canon fanboys.

Yes, because that's what you are really buying: a lineage of image character: Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fuji.

dpr4bb: Hard to get too enthusiastic about these "enthusiast" cameras and their compromised lenses. I understand there are trade-offs, but come on...

Exactly. At $400-500, maybe, but not at these ambitious prices. The OEMs chasing too many ....

Soft lens, strong noise reduction reduces JPEG image quality

Why even issue the camera, let alone at asking prices. Because this could have been a compelling camera.

Where's the clarity. Amazing the chromatic abberation on the ferry shot.

What this really is they don't know what to do next. Instead, why not innovate your viewing/control systems.

I want a RF that zooms to the focal length in use, still has framelines, with about 85 percent of the VF being the image area; 15 percent field of view outside the framelines.

No one can do it?

I love RF viewing and focusing, but it never really been advanced as far as I can tell.
