Though it is a zoom lens it is fa 31 like. i think the desiegner is one person. it doesnt accept filtters and the rosy hood is similar
a bad price for a great lens
As the 645z price is nearly the top full frame frome canikon..so no pentax fullframe.645z is pentax full frame.
Great work dpr. The XT 1 is a beautiful camera but still expensive. I wonder how the mirror less cameras are expensive and near the price of some wonderful full frame cameras. Still wondering why manufacturers of mirror less cameras insist on the small size of the body whereas the lenses are huge.
No way I see the Sony A7r far behind the pentax all the way
Pentax do the same thing on lenses prices and I'm sure this machine will be your black horse.
It is pentax answer to any one asking for a full frame.
Good job Samsung mean while it is a pricy camera. Nikon d750 is better to get.
time to speak about the sensor
I see on the horizon a k02 on this body!
Impossible is the new name of EOS type.
why buy a fixed lens camera at a 800$ or more when I could buy PENTAX K3 AT this price.
Me too for one with 85mm f1.4. this what pentax should do.
this machine will put samsung on the right way .they forget no thing exept for puting canon or nikon name
This cool camera received almost the same reaction as k01. pentax with this small and different camera got some lights at a crowdy market!altough pentax is a small company but it used to offer a different concepts and smart solutions for photography than the big boys used to offer.since the 30d and d200 has been released canon and nikon did not offer what should be offer from a big company.. so one can say :pentax is shaking the market from time to time!!
I think dpr used to not release a complet review for such a camera.so this preview may be will be the last thing !!
the k3 produce amazing details at base ISO. 3200 ISO is k5 series like.6400 and above is another story!my 2 cents!
what is this camera for.It is not d800 mp or D4 powerful or d610 price.it is full of controls that no space size to hold it easy.
If It was APS/C sensor like the old R1 I would go with this new one .But It is still wonderful tool from sony!
Well done Pentax as usual .thanks Richo for keeping k 5 body!
