also no microphone present in order to shoot silent movies
Easyly solved with a firmware update preventing stopping down more than F8 ;)
because you need a dedicated bag for everything
Keep getting lost and see only sky. Btw Tomtom also released an action cam today.
hotdog321: F8?! Don't they know we need a f/2.8 lens?
Put a pentax q on it and it is a 13720mm F/much equivalent
And it only shoots at infinity?
TSeiler: My Fuji S1 has a 25-1200 lens and a great doubler built in giving me 2400mm. It is only $250 and has built in image stabilization. And I can shoot it without a tripod and get great images.
AksCT: It is amazing to see how rapidly image/video quality of smart phones is improving. I remain impressed with what my Note 4 can produce and S6 seems to be even better. This competition is excellent for consumers.What is next? larger sensor, optical zoom, better SNR, ...
Yeah the Sony rx-100 IV-G
Rajeshb: Where is the Nikon version? :(
This one should be expired: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/5018af.htm
Mark K: They should replicate 50f1.2, 85 f1.2 or if bold enough, the 600F4 IS II
There will be when they cost $100 :P
winkalman: For those lamenting the lack of a built in flash, why not just go with a small hotshoe flash that offers higher output and bounce capabilities like Metz's mecablitz 26 AF-1?
Looks like a nice versatile little flash. Great that companies like Metz are still around.
Can be adapted.
They added image quality to the lens?
The only camera that matter in an iPhone is the one in front. That can do without high res.
SnakePlissken: Great looking camera and spec. But will it sell? And who will stock it? I have never seen a Pentax DSLR ever and living and working in central London means I see 100s of cameras on the street, tube, museums, galleries etc ever week. I have never seen one for sale in big retailers like Calumet or John Lewis either. I hope it does well as the consumer benefits from choice and Pentax / Ricoh is a great, almost left-field, option to the big guns.
Everybody knows that having no pop-up flash on a DSLR makes you a pro. Of course it will sell. Everybody wants to be a pro.
the 'experts' are at it again I see.
Bhima78: I'm starting to think that Ricoh's sensor shift idea is actually better than Oly's as it will require a whole heck of a lot less processing, and can likely be done on the fly much faster. Plus, adding resolution isn't as big of an advantage as adding color information imo. If this works well, it could replace a Foveon sensor.
This will result in sharper images. Shooting of a good tripod will be required though. Effective mp counts don't say very much because a lot depends on lens sharpness vs pixel size. The output will be sharper than any 24mp aps-c camera out there. By a large margin. When put to use in the right way it will be a brilliant feature.Some explanation: http://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/photo-articles/how-pentax-k-3-ii-pixel-shifting-works.html
Reinhard136: no flash ???? k3 just committed suicide for me. That was such an excellent feature.
The K-3 still has a flash. This is the K-3 II. Having no flash is unique for an aps-c dslr.
Nice update. Who needs a flash anyway. GPS is a fine feature for outdoor people who don't use flash. (It aggravates Grizzlies ). The superres, low noise mode is also a nice addition. Let's see how it works out. Wifi can be had with a flu card for who needs it. Hopefully the AF promises wil come true.
I don't like slt because it diminishes light to the sensor. Also I believe it diffracts a little. Since there are now cmos sensors with pdaf detectors I don't see the need.
