aramgrg: I shoot canikon, but honestly, even after 7dii and a77ii, pentax is the best. Combine it with under $800 price point and it is a no brainer for the one who starts building a system.

Yes, they are very close, however,
1) EVF vs OVF. If you are an action shooter, even if TCM may help tracking, but the blackouts in evf are not pleasing(at least what I've seen in mark I). And other downsides of TCM, which I think all of us know. However, it may be better for some shooting stiles, I personally do not like it.
2)The body construction of Pentax is just superb.
3) Selectable AA filter and No TLC makes it about half a stop better
4) GPS astro tracer may be invaluable for some
5) Fast continuous shooting with good buffer. Even if Sony is faster, I still prefer the tracking with OVF

DavidsfotosDotCom: K-3 has time laps & 0GPS-1 but what is:
1. GPS optional if it has GPS1?
2. Can Canon EF or old FD lens adapt?
I have to much Canon Pro glass to buy other wise.

You can buy optional astro-tracker, which basically moves tge sensor based on GPS data to avoid star trails

1 star are giving competitors, who participate for in the same contest. And why, because that is the Nash equilibrium outcome. Dpreview should not allow participants to vote for any image in the contest they are participating also.

aramgrg: The most interesting fact is that they do not realize that they are dieing. If the have very small share of the market, they need to produce something extraordinary, so that people will switch to Pentax and hence they can be cost-effective because of scale effects. In this pace, I am not sure they will ever be. This zoom is a huge waste of research recourses.

Well, it is always good to have a nice watch in addition to one's clothing collection, but that one need to make sure he doesn't starve to die. You understand my point? The question is for now, they need to attract people by something revolutionary, than they are allowed to make whatever lens they want at the price point higher than the peers. Now I am looking at k-3, b&h has a crazy good deal on it, but does it worth to buy k-3 a bit cheaper than its peers, when the lenses for it are not stabilized( I am not fan of SR) and are more expensive than, say nikon d7100, which is very close to pentax in terms of everything (and can share my d610 lenses). My point is that majority is already in canikon camp, and nobody will jump to pentax for this lens, and nobody would have escaped it for the lack of this lens.

On Canon announces EOS C100 Mark II article (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

jadot: Not particularly clever commenting on what looks tho be an amazing digital video camera.
Loads of new features here and all people can whine about it "No 4K" and EVF woes!
You have no idea. Really.

It is indeed an amazing camera, just not in the right time. It could have been an amazing 3 years back, but world moves on and Canon is stuck in 2011. There is no technological feature in any of their products that was not available in 2011. Same for Nikon(Well, Nikon, at least buys sensors from Sony)

aramgrg: My smartphone shoots 4k already :D

I haven't compared the qualities yet, but I am pretty sure it will cost about the same as the eyepiece on the viewfinder of this one. Announcing 1080p nowadays for professional work sounds funny for me. 4K TV's are under 1000$. If I will be buying a new TV, I will for sure buy 4K, the, if I am buying a movie CD, I will buy a 4K one, and so on...

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2071 comments in total)
In reply to:

cberry: There's a neglected aspect to equivalence hiding here -background blur equivalence. the same lens on APS-C due to magnification of the final image produces more background blur than on full frame - akin to greater magnification of final prints highlighting focus inacuracies.

Simply, No!
It produces narrower angle of view, which one can perceive as shallower dept of field, but that is not the case. If you get the same frame with the FF(say, walk 1.5 times closer) than the dept of field will be exactly the same(of course with different backgrounds)

On Canon introduces new $78K 50-1000mm cine lens article (173 comments in total)

Most probably Canon had one particular preorder of this kind of lens from a cinematographic company and they decided also to "introduce" it, why not :D

Paul Rumohr: Wow the A5100 is amazing by comparison

The question is that even a5100 is better by 1 stop, at optimal light and given lens, it needs a nonexistent 16-65 f2.8-4 to have similar low light performance as Canon AND be coat pocketable ;)

Instead of seeing impossible, just make the possible available, take that damn NX1 and put an EF mount on it!

Seems like fuji is going to supply the rest of its cameras with the same sensor. It reminds the 18mp aps-c canon :)
