Reilly Diefenbach: Not one picture of a landscape to show what 24MP can really do?
with a kit zoom you probably won't see the difference
ThePhilips: The Panasonic Image App is more powerful. And doesn't require buying a special dedicate card.
Still, a neat (albeit expensive) feature for the Pentax shooter.
P.S. 5 stars for something that others offer for free? Really, DPR??
Flu-card is a third party accessory. For people for whom it is useful $99 is not a whole lot of money. People who don't like it don't buy it. It's a choice. Lots of people have wifi and don't use it. The camera could have cost $50 less...
Paul1974: This is just to keep the firmware-update trolls from trolling. Even though there really isn't anything that needs to be adressed by these updates, people will simply feel better when there is one. It's like mirrors, you don't really need them but some photographers cling to them.
Now who is trolling?
Gazeomon: My camera purchases are not based on this sites reviews. If it were I would have lost 4 months of shooting with my very- very nice K3. Bummer that the 'Flu card' does not transfer DNG's, no shares in jpgs, no 'Flu card' for me.
Somebody probably patented is and Ricoh didn't want to pay.
Point me to the free camera's! Just because it is included in the camera price, doesn't mean you're not paying for it.
Looks a very nice additions for creative photography. Does it support the composition adjustment feature pentax has? (moving the sensor in the body).
I want a silver and ivory X-Pro1
Mazhe: So, no interview with Pentax representatives? Too bad, I would have liked a Q/A session in the same vein of the others...
Coming up coming up coming up!
There is an interview with Ricoh on Pentax forums btw. Nothing definitive but i am hopeful.
Jogger: 80% Gold
Yes 19.2 Carat

"The X-E2 isn't a great all-rounder... Not so good for sports or action photography."
No wonder MILCs can't gain any traction against DSLRs. Even the latest greatest are handicapped.
The Oly gang is now going to keel haul you
JaimeA: Please do not post any comments until we get a full review of the Fuji X-E2. How long can we wait??? The camera appeared months ago and has been on sale since. No excuses please.
comment strike? How much restraint do you think we have?
Canon is not worried, but they should be.
I think Sony is better at Pushing the envelope
Digital camera's haven't improved very much over the past few years. The megapixelrace is over, there is no must have new technology. The improvements in iq are minimal compared compared to 2010 when the D7000 and K-5 came out. So people are not so eager to replace their camera's. A new sensor technology would help, but there is not much room for improvement, unless you can drastically enhance high ISO performance.
Wedding photographer: Dear DPReview readers,
My name is Konstantin Mineev, I am a wedding photographer from Russian city Voronezh (photography is my favorite hobby).
Two years ago I had happy holidays with my family in Sochi and took several photos. Sochi is amazing city with very kind people.
I suggest you to look on our photos that have been taken with cheep Canon 1100D + Samyang fisheye + Sigma 30mm/1.4 .
Please see our photos on the link below:http://zoomvrn.ru/portfolio/family-foto/family-foto-in-sochi-2011-december
This is another "another side of Sochi".
If the photo is a reflection of the photographer's soul, then what is the inner world of a man who has made such bad shots in this wonderful city?
With the best regards, Konstantin Mineev.
I think both sides of Sochi are there. The side you show depends in the interest of the photographer. You can make these pictures anywhere. Even in the richest and most glamorous city in the world.
Jon Ragnarsson: Why doesn't Pentax make a mirrorless 645? That would be a truly unique camera and sure to make a few heads turn.
Pentax doesn't want to develop a whole range of new lenses?
So how much less does the aperture click?
Depriving people of their opportunity to complain about "only silver". How can you!
Won't this make all subjects really short and fat?
So now I am going to be a bitch and ask for a Pentax K-50 and K-3 Review because this is not a serious camera but a gadget vehicle.
