On Pentax K-3 Review preview (491 comments in total)

Thx a lot for this review that I find balanced and right. I already have a K-3, and I just love it, the best Pentax camera up to date...

Thanks a lot for the review (finally!). But it still isn´t visible on the camera review page (the Oly E-PM2 is still displayed first...)

On Review in progress: Pentax K-5 II and K-5 II S article (42 comments in total)

@ dpreview:
Thanks a lot for this samples; I would like to see a report on the behaviour of the FA-Limiteds (like the 43 you used on the K-5II) on both K-5II and K-5IIs. My expierence, and you can read a detailed description at Klaus´photozone.de, is that the 43Lim isn´t very sharp from edge to edge on the original K-5 (very mushy corners at 2.8, no corners at all at 1.9, but excellent center sharpness), contrary to the K-7 and older models. One idea was that this was the fault of the more than fairly strong AA-filter on the K-5; but the samples with the 43Lim on the K-5II you posted seem better to me, even very acceptable or good at 2.8. If the K-5II has a weaker AA-filter than the K-5, than the FA-Limiteds should really shine on the K-5IIs...
Would be nice to read your opinion!
Best regards
M.

On Photokina 2012: Interview - John Carlson of Pentax article (152 comments in total)

Now, very well done. Really a bad interview. Either the guy is a marketing idiot, or this is simply sabotage! Why doesn't he talk about the strengths of Pentax (best IQ of a crop camera, superb aps-c lens lineup with the Limiteds, dwarfish size for a true DSLR, etc etc), and I mean really talk, and not only mention it btw and as if he would not believe it himself! What a pity, the K-5 is such a great camera, and the mkII can't be other thing than even better! For my part, I will buy a K-5IIs, and I hope there is a K-3 coming soon (and why not a new line of fast "normal" primes...)

Münchhausen: The Price Point is ridiculous, for the 6d As well As for the Nikon D600. We're broke in Europe, and we will simply not shell out 2000€ for a entry level FF. Greed is good, but it is killing economy right now. Where is the camera manufacturer that would offer a 1500$/€ FF camera? Sony could have done it, but they didn't have the cojones for it, or Pentax, but they don't have the will either. I won't by anything of this, and even not the RX1 with its ridiculous price. vale

It's not enough my friend because in Europe you will pay 2000€! And why? Oh explain me this! I would pay the equivalent of 2000$ in €, if the camera is really good. For real-life people this is quite an amount; for the others, who dont have any real connection between their work and the money they are earning for it, naturally this doesn't matter. But then I don't really understand why you are looking at so cheapish products as the d600 or 6d; you have the big ones, and then Leica, naturally...

Sounds like you didn't understand anything of what I said. I hope you will by both cameras, so you could compare them.

Münchhausen: The only weird thing I can find about the review is that you have let it to somebody who isn´t familiar with Pentax gear, so a big part of this review sounds a little bit strange (like the remark of the by default "strangely" turned off distortion control - every Pentaxist knows how much this is slowing down things in Pentax cameras, as opposed to Nikon, for example). Could you please the next time "invite" somebody who knows his Pentax stuff.. :=)

Thank you very much, Jeff, for answering; I think you have understood that it wasn´t in any case against you. So, definitively, I don´t unterstand Pentax marketing, Pentax being unable to send you the DA and FA Limiteds.

Nothing against Jeff, or his competences; but why to hell try this camera with plastic kit zooms (that aren´t in any way worse than the Nikon or Canon ones, being in the same time water-sealed) or heavy DA* lenses - the interesting thing is to use the DA and FA Limiteds on it. A pentaxist, that´s what I wanted to say, would have automatically had this reflex. As for in camera lens correction, naturally that it is a valid point, and naturally that Pentax should be up to the level of competition, but it is the way he says it, that will irritate every non-pentaxist reader.

Sorry to have to say that again: but the IQ of the posted images in the sample gallery is simply BREATHTAKING. No matter, what the flaws of tha camera are, it is, and this in jpeg, capable of some of the best real-world images I have seen lately (and especially for this prize!). So, thanks DPR to posting this!

Münchhausen: To Amadou Diallo/dpreview:
Thx a lot for your very usefull review, but could you please post:
a) a viewinder comparison/review section
and
b) an evaluation of the crop mode with some real-world samples
(I´m very excited about this double possibility to use the D800 in FX and DX: how is the image quality, and DR? With a AF-S Nikkor 35mm 1.8G the D800 transforms in an D7000 with almost 16MP...)

Thanks a lot for your quick answer. I didn´t see it, as you used a FF lens. But this is really great! Can you tell me, why there is nothing about the viewfinder in your review?

In reply to:

Münchhausen: Two questions, to DPREVIEW:
1) I didn´t see a extensiv comment on the viewfinder (maybe I didn´t find it - or did you give up this very usefull section of your reviews?)
2) I´m a little bit intrigued by the score (I´m not the only one, it seems). I have a Pentax K-5, following your scores, I rather stay with my very cheap (800 Euros, at the moment in Europe) K-5 that scores at 83; but if I look at the images produced by the D800, they are clearly better, in my eyes (even if I like the excellent K-5 IQ a lot). So, should I stay with the K-5? (A kind of rhetorical question...)

Thx for your answer. I will naturally keep my K-5 (portability, smallest APS-C system, etc.), but I was thinking about getting my first digital FF camera, so I am a bit puzzled by this review. For the Pentax glass, the small Limiteds aren´t weather sealed, but you have zooms (from the cheapish but ok 18-55 to the extraordinary 50-135, and the very good 16-50 that are wr, and naturally the very beautiful 55mm 1.4). I think you will enjoy Pentax, not over Canon, but as another experience.

In reply to:

Münchhausen: Really don't see what the point is with this camera. Features are great, but 4/3 already was a too small sensor size, and going m4/3 just doesn't keep up with the IQ of APS-C, not to speek about FF. And don't say anything about size! The new zoom lens is huge, personally I find the styling of the camera a joke (fake SLR, and IQ-wise a fake DSLR). I was a huge gf1 and pen fan when the cameras came out, but m43 just doesn't deliver any more in the competition, I'm really disappointed (just think that you get for less money a Nikon D7000 or a Pentax K-5, the best APS-C's on the market, actually; and even if I own both of them already, I am really tempted to use my money to buy another one again instead of the OM-D).

Yes it is. Go to dxo mark, and if you don't believe it, just try the cams. You're right for the size of small and fast primes, but Pentax has also small ones, and even if they aren't so fast, High iso IQ compensates for this. And you have a true viewfinder...

Thank you very much for this sample gallery! The IQ is just astonishing!!!! It would be so nice to post a full review, I don´t know if I ever will have enough money to buy it, but I´m already putting some aside. It´s a must-have, this camera!
