Retzius: Does this fix the flopping mirror?
I too had the issue initially but it has never returned since firmware update 1.02, I believe. This is a great camera and while an issue like that shouldn't happen, no doubt, it is not a deal breaker for me.
Great photos, but No. 10 is the standout for me. What a shot!
snow14: just if was movie maker with multi million dollar budget i would of cared for this.
It's "I would have" not "I would of".
chillgreg: Could it be time for the 90% camera?
Even though I AM one of those Pentax users, I have to admit you are right InTheMist.As long as it gets a better rating than the gadget box Canon 70D, I am happy.
What an amazing photo. The judge's description words it perfectly.
Peiasdf: Maybe those K-3 owners pining for review could go out and actually voice with their wallet and buy a darn K-3 instead of flooding the comments section with demand for review. If you guys actually mean what you said, a la, buying a Pentax, maybe K-50 wouldn't be #60 and K-3 #63 on Amazon's DSLR sales chart. DP shouldn't waste time satisfying 7 people's curiosity.
My wallet spoke loud and clear as soon as the K3 was released. Pentaxians aren't so much the target audience for this outstanding review but the people who are in the market for a new camera. Since the review (the K5 II review took almost half a year, I believe) would probably boost sales, this lag is exactly what is keeping undecided people from speaking with their wallet.
Judging by the low DxO Mark sensor score of 68, and the "pro" list above, I have to assume this camera rides to a gold award as gadget stuffed wifi box, not so much as a camera?
