The big Samsung mistake was building a crop sensor mount from the beginning.if the nx mount was designed as full frame may be Samsung find some options to come back.
Androole: It seems equivalence is unkind to larger sensors as well as to small ones.
"$1500 for a 28mm f2.8? Who would ever buy that?"
It's perhaps an exaggeration, but it does say something that despite the 645Z's bargain price tag as far as digital medium format is concerned, it's still not a great value proposition unless you really, really need it. Especially since the 5DS has the same resolution, and the A7r II (and undoubtedly the D820) are nipping close at its heels.
It is not the resolution but it is the sensor size. My Nokia 808 is 41 mps
What about lenses?
some amazing pics.these pics are taken by a photographer eyes not a reviewer.i like the color rendering and the sharpen is promsing!
More cameras body / mounts/. .less lenses = Sony .
I hope pentax comes with 2 dslrs as did nikon before when it first released d 700 and d 3. One delayed camera is not the answer to many customers. A mid range camera with 24 mps and a pro version with 36 or 42 mps sensor is making sense. One pro aps /c camera and 2 full frame cameras these are what pentax should do. The pro aps /c is for da lenses and the full frames for dfa lenses. No more KS series.
zakaria: what is the main diffirance between mirrorless and dslr.is it the miirror or the size.if the size is supposed to be the main advance..so what about the samsung nx1. it is bigger than k5.what about fuji XE1..yes it is smaller than k5 but can you attach a tele photo or a big zoom on it like sigma 50-500.if it is the mirror .. i think ovf is better and more reliable.
might be but the size as i think is biger or almost similar.even though 200g more is not the big deal to go mirrorless .i think mirrorless is not the alternative to dslr.may be it is alternative to the compact and fixed lens cameras.

@40daystogoi think dpr has many interesting things to discuss than you just logged onto DPReview to make the point that, , the Pentax DSLR is really ugly and that Pentax have no idea how to create gorgeous design ........pentax dslrs are a photography machines not a toys.do you know how to release a lense or attach it on a nikon dslr. it is from the left side. is this a good desiegn.
I logged onto DPReview to make the point that, to me, the Pentax DSLR is really ugly and that Pentax have no idea how to create gorgeous design - ......just to point it is ugly.ok this ugly machine is my pre order camera from now!!!
from what iam seeing this machine is the most beautifull dslr for my taste.it is the k5 approch with 645z look.with pentax unique features and this design pentax is a winner.
mirrorless is a trend and i think the dslr will still the tools for every photography styles. can you attatch a bigma 50-500 on xe1 and fell happy.it is the sensor size not the system that will make sense.just my thoughts
thanks dpr stuff. theos are the best and clarity pics i saw for this sleepy tool.but i think the title is some how refers to some thing live with the help of god. a died person waiting for death!!!!
Although the kit and great lens XF 18 - 50 was fuji trick to attract new buyers to the brand i think this lens will kill every prime from 18 mm to 50 mm. Fuji you should discontinue this kit if you want to sell this new lens.
sigma please k mount is waiting for such a lens.i have 24mmf1.4 art for f mount ..it is amazing though heavy but who cares if he carrying adslr ff camera.
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.
