rogerstpierre: Wow... why focusing on the performance of the 10 year old GR, which makes it sounds bad, whereas the current GR is an outstanding camera that is hard to beat in the APS-C format. I hope Ricoh didn't come up with this unnecessarily demeaning statement.
i also noticed that dpr used to put some negative touch to every thing about pentax-ricoh even if it woule need calling the bad history of some tools
Tempting to get. Nice camera already.
It is not too late as some mentioned. Fuji start a new system from scratch. So did Sony, Samsung, oly and Panasonic. Though pentax has ff mount and already has many ff lenses. Not too late ..I wait it since 2006. .no big harm if I add 6 months more. But please no more delay.
IMO they will bring a capable camera at decent price.they did it with 645z.
CosminMunteanu: seems a kit lens :-)
A fast and constant lens hard to be a kit. It is a premium lens with HD coat and wr. May be the 24 -120 will be the kit for the ff system.
may be becaous you are out of photography.
@jimbetter to see thishttp://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56535384
pentax is not the only company to rebadge lenses from the others.what about many tokina prime lenses that have the name of nikon.what about leica and panasonic.what about sony and zeis.what the problem with tamron lenses.i have the tamron 70-200 and it is very sharp.
Smart step Ricoh. The price is very tempting. Shall we see the 15 -30 soon. From now to spring about 6 months. .shall we will see a new lens every month including the refreshing fa ltds. I think dfa * 70 -200 will be released again with the k1 to be a premium product that match the k1 looking and performance. Thanks Ricoh for keeping my beloved brand bright and alive.
I think until the unveiled day pentax will try to fill this time with rumors and news .I assume that there will be a new lenses release plus a real successor to k3. .which it will refer to what kind of technology the k1 will have. Maybe we will see updated fa ltds and dfa * 70 -200. All these will decrease the pressure and make them work at good environment far from the mass.
Put d610 sensor inside k3 body and add wi fi with built-in flash. Sell it at 1300 $. Make your aps/c flagship at 700 $. Same marketing strategy as well as the 645 Z. Then you will take my money as nikon did with 610. Put your legs on the market firstly and then explain yourself. A simple cheap piece and strong will make sense .
Better than nothing. I would like to see 2 versions of the k 1. First a high end camera with a new engine that makes pentax af system a thing from the past. The second one is to be aimed at pentaxians fans sharing the same body of k3 with k3ii features and d610 sensor. The first one to be at the price of d810 but the second should be less than 2000 $. My 2 $
Amazing work. It is the photographer behind the tool. I wish I could see some thing similar to the d7200 work.
Pretty cool. I like the concept.
A walk around lens at a very expensive price. Sorry nikon your eyes still on full frame users when pricing the lens.
@ arra I have 6 Pentax cameras though no dealer on my area. How I heard about Pentax?
the px raw are full of details ,clarity,noisless.the px jpeg is on par with raw from others cameras.
Wow aps/c camera beating ff at costless price! Is it fair to compare a small sensor against a big one? But yeah lt is Pentax that can do it with no problems.
I think the sigma 70 macro must be a standard lense to copare the cameras performance.
@ Mike FLI dont have the opportunity to send it back ..simply because it will cost me about 300$ for reshipping.! it is hard ware problem not a software so if it has a problem it will appear from the moment i used the camera.
