fakuryu: I'm in the market for a new 35mm, was thinking of getting the Sigma Art but it is just too expensive for my needs now even though it is an excellent lens.
Thinking of getting the DA 35mm f2.4, the HD 55-200 was not in the roadmap, will wait for the HD 35 f2.4 if ever there will be one.
Or you can get this one: http://www.dpreview.com/products/Pentax/lenses/pentax_hd_da_35_2p8_ltd
I would get the D800 when I would be interested in buying Nikon.
Frederik Paul: So, the AF selection switch is gone and it has a video/live view switch instead. By that, following the trend to give SLRs not only video functions but even (over-)represent them by assigning dedicated buttons to them and thereby replacing photo functions with them. Which is more important, changing AF selection mode or go into video mode?
AF selection via dedicated AF button + control wheel and icon on top LCD. It's a logical step to run all controls through those wheels. The new stills/video switch makes all the camera's shooting modes available for video, which is great.
sbc: Nice, but I was hoping for the rumoured DA 18-70 f2.8 instead.
Pentax is rolling out HD coating over it's line up, it's not really a new lens it has different coating and wr protection. Therefore these updates are not on the roadmap. There probably will be one or two new lenses later this year.
Pentax understands a camera is primarily a tool and not a gadgetcontainer. I hope AF has improved considerably especially in tracking subjects.
Melt down de damn statue and dump it on Gaylords lawn.
onlooker: The level of contempt for the rights of the creator is astonishing among the so called photographers here.
You just raised it tenfold.
D1N0: pfwa pfwa pfwa pfwaaaah. My old Sony compact does it, my ancient galaxy s does it, so what's new?
Everything that doesn't have i in it is very bad. I wish all those fanboys would just die or something. Really get out of my universe!
pfwa pfwa pfwa pfwaaaah. My old Sony compact does it, my ancient galaxy s does it, so what's new?
I give it gold (then again I compare it with the LX-7 XZ-2 MX-1).
and Overabundance of filter and low-light shooting modes? Who cares? Don't use them.
JakeB: Where the heck is Tokina's 70-200 f4??
It was announced over a year ago.
Tokina is owned by Hoya and Hoya sucks. (that was an explanation).
photoramone: no tokina for pentax??
you don't seriously want to film with a Pentax. It's cool that you can but implementation is crappy.
I want to see the manual to see wether or not it states not to change lenses under water.
ET2: Wow Phase One can resolve printing dots on the playing cards
Well it has 80 mp at 6*4.5cm it bloody well should!
Trollshavethebestcandy: Can you throw in a troll doll into the scene to make the mirrorless hating posters feel more at home?
we don't hate mirrorless, just Oly :p
The images aren't refreshing properly (at least not in firefox) sometimes after a lot of clicks and settings changes they all respond to a switch of the loupe view. Also I get low light for one camera and illuminated for another. Kind of hard to compare.
Trollshavethebestcandy: Add on OVF and combo with pancake and fish eye this could be pretty sweet.
you mean you want a x-pro1
rsf3127: I don't get all the hype about these fuji cameras. The image samples look dull, mushy, without contrast and unsharp when compared to NEX and the 100D either in RAW or JPEG. The ergonomy is ok and the build quality is nice, but this does not compensate for the IQ problem.
That is probably why dpreview have scored the iq higher than any of the examples you have given. They must be utterly incompetent. Either that or you are.
It takes photo's as good as the x-pro1 so the gold award is deserved.
D1N0: Great Fuji needs the entry level in order to graze/educate the masses about their philosophy. I would like to see a comparison with the x-m1 soon.
X-trans is not the only thing that defines Fuji :p And this camera looks exactly the same as the x-m1. It still has retro styling en the same ergonomics
