D7200 is my best choice now at nearly half of the price.
If I will get this lens i will get only for the amazing gallery. Some of the beautiful portraits that come from a macro lens. Well done!
hoped for firmware improving my 2 xpro1 xe1 af.but that is good news .thanks fuji
Some photos seem plasticky and flat. No life on it.
love free gifts!!!and this is a valued gift.thanks google!
I wonder how video capabilities put as pros and cons at the same time!!!
Franz Weber: That is sad. I will never buy a camera from an asian manufacturer again.
so you have one choice only/leica/!!!!
Poghes: Hey Ricoh, We want the DNG, full resolution files and also some sample with high ISO too.Even my grand mom's old Nokia cellphone can take good shots in the bright light day with ISO 100-200Who is with me ??
well said.Ricoh! suspense must be ended!!
Images are better even with old fashion lens. iam sure it will be much better with FA limited and the new dfa series.
Thanks dpr staff for updating the samples pictures. You really did and still doing a great work for pentaxians. I am satisfied with your work.
patarok: They could leave everything out in a consumer-version. and i would be more than happy to see a lower resolution but higher burst-rate camera. But PENTAX(Ricoh) should never ever again let a Camera without weathersealings on the market. WR is a feature that is very "own" to Pentax DSLRs and the last 2 cameras that came without(K-500, K-S1) seem to have failed heavily. Other than that cameras that step out of the line, could hurt the image of PENTAX DSLRs... Dont worry, if it works out with the K-1 (and according to all those positive reviews it should), there will be a K-S FF version. And though it will be WR/AW it will not be as expensive as the K-1 i guess. -- Looking into my crystal ball ... i see a price tag of 1199 Dollars.
agree.pentax should not reprsent a cameras that lack of wr like k500. my crystal ball also tells me that there will be 3 camera lines only for k mount:k1 seriesk3 seriesko1 series/hope that/!no more plastic cameras
GabrielZ: Pentax's 'Limited Primes' are they FF or optimized only for APS-C?
FA 'Limited Primes' are FF
I like the conceive and valued report except the conclusion!!! K1 is not at league with d610 or 6d .both last camera are entry level cameras and outdated. You even didn't put it in d750 league. The fair compare is D810 at least both are handling 36 mps sensor Both are 1/ 8000 shutter speed both are well made bodies not a combination of plastic and ss. Don't forget the Pentax unique features that you already have mentioned.
Digital cameras are a sort of computer so it is usual thing to face issues. Also the camera components are coming from many different sources that Camera makers can't control it effectively.
inspiron530: I went to CP+ over the weekend and remember listen to one of their conference. At one point the speaker talk about the decision to do K-1. It turned out, K-1 has been a very hard push for many years directly from the developing team, which he said, it is a very nontraditional way for Pentax because most decision to do or not to do something usually coming from marketing department. And Pentax marketing team has never favor the idea of FullFrame K-1! because they don't think it will sell. I wonder what marketing research data they have on hand.This is the same marketing team that think rainbow color camera will sale! LOL Personally, I think it is time to change their Marketing team. A marketing team like that will run the brand into the ground. Or they already did?
And by the way, from what he said, I get a feeling that if K-1 is not a success, it could be the last Pentax FullFrame ever.
I dont think it will the last pentax ff becaouse the new lenses and the future lenses are positioned to be ff/dfa/.another points: ff sensors are lean to be cheap.: Ricoh already invest on k1 so no more or big investment in future k2 or whatever the name.
The more I see Jorge comments the more I like Pentax k1.
nice work fuji.I like the way they put their efforts whereas the lenses are periority.though i dont like the way they price their cameras. 1800$ for xpro1 at release time may be ok becaouse it was innovative camera but 1800 or 1700 for xpro2 is not logical compare with some ff cameras!
belle100: Call me ignorance. I know Pentax produced some excellent MF since the film age. But I don't understand what's the fuss. Why is everybody here so excited about this Pentax FF?
And why you are not? It is a new competitor which bring a FF machine with a very attractive price. This will push the others to decrease their prices. So if you are not a Pentax user you may benefit at least from the price. Another thing I have to mention that the k1 is the only ff with RS +SR
seems sigma begin a new camera appraoch like they have did with the lens sector!i like the design but sigma price for cameras are not logical some times!!!though it is great news to see a new mirror less compeititor and i hope pentax back to this type of cameras not the tiny Q!
if sigma could build a mirrorless then what are the reasons nikon ,canon,pentax couldnt!!!!i know there is k01 and nikon v 1 and j but it seems the 3 famous dslr makers are not convicted!!!!
