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.

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.

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.

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (390 comments in total)

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.

D1N0: I see an aps-c 24mp sensor with 19fps capability (so it must also be able to do 4k)

IMX271 24M APS 3.91 19 SLVS 8Lane
SLVS-EC 8Lane RGB DSLR Exmor

there are 16 lanes. 8 SLVS and 8 SLVS-EC

When my aperture breaks I get out my precision screwdrivers to fix it.

So know they obfuscate shutter speeds?

straylightrun: Retail price should be $199.95 Max.

I had teachers like you that spend most of their time talking about how we would not listen and never came round to actually teaching us anything. By the way, I was talking about where Lensbaby produces it's lenses, not about the specific characteristics of this lens, since I already did that elsewhere. It appears they have a shack in portland where they assemble stuf. Doesn't tell me were they get their parts though.

I've been there commander but I might just be too stupid. please demote me to grunt.

Or you could be helpful instead of full of disdain.
