peevee1: Wow, it is even worse than SL1/100D, which was worse than more than 4 y/o T2i and easily won The Worst DSLR of 2013!
Great, the year just started but we already know the winner of The Worst DSLR of 2014!
Up until now it is the only DSLR launched this year. So it is also the best of 2014. Ofcourse de 645D II (2014) will be launched soon, so then it will loose one of it's titles.
Lucas_: For readers that anxiously wait for DPR Review just lo see if the camera gets a "gold" badge, first remember this is a Sony, so regardless it seems to be another excellent product, it won't go above "silver"...! This "first impressions", says it all: for almost every "positive" DPR have to add some "negative", already preparing the path for their review!Anyway, as several other review sites say, the A6000 seems to be another awesome advance in technology. Weather it looks almost a twin of the sucessful NEX6 in appearance, it really is a very different camera, which shows a number of improvements and new tech. Sony promised the new fast AF and there it is, let's see the test results.l
Sony just have a knack for not getting it exactly right.
Dual controls reserved for the A8000?
Yes we Canon! Upgrade the label. People will buy it anyway because all the pro's use it......
dccdp: Maybe it's just my lack of imagination as I haven't had my coffee this morning ;-) but how do you hold this camera? I mean, yes, you probably keep your thumb at the side of that inverted grip. But then, how do you operate those buttons, especially the nice Focus one?
try holding your smartphone up like that and you' ll know. You don't need to put your wrist in an awkward position to hold it in front of your face.
WACONimages: Why not mirror-less? With three separate bright lenses? One camera investment and the lens(es) of choice.
it is mirrorless..... just not ILC
Even on a 1080p screen 4k looks better because there is less compression artifacts, but hardware is not up to task of streaming it yet. You need h.265 and VP9 hardware video accelleration to play it back smoothly. So this is really a film makers toy and not really usefull for most people. It will take 3 to 5 years for hardware to catch on and 4k screens to become cheaper. By then there will be much more 4k capable camera's.
should be able to do 120p 1080 or 240p 720. That would be cool
John Miles: Kind of expected an M4/3" option.
APS-C covers m43 , so it is both.
Just crop it
fakuryu: Too bad, Tamron is snubbing the Pentax-K mount again. Given that this lens is splash proof, it makes perfect sense for Pentax users who wants one travel zoom lens because of the affordable weather sealed bodies.
The 18-270 is available in K-mount the Pentax version is a rebranded Tamron.
The update being a new brandname and different colours.
Rod McD: Interesting that there's no 'reference' product for an FF camera - DSLR or mirror-less. Pentax execs have stated since the Ricoh takeover that the company is considering FF development and there has been endless speculation about the concept since. I'm not sure what we can deduce from this........ A lot of people have been hoping that 2014 would be the year.......
Brigcam: PENTAX Film Duplicator-
Anyone else make this?
They're working on it in China. On ebay in two weeks.
MrLuffy: FA 31,43 and 77 lenses are not supported?
they are not warned against either, so it will just have to be tested.
645D (II) coming as expected. Same sony cmos sensor as Hasselblad and Phase One.

I am glad that the value of Pentax is finally recognized. Now let's review it.
Ok, now put it back together again (in working order).
Pretty usefull actually
