ManuelVilardeMacedo: Dear Ricoh people: please give the Pentax brand the mercy shot. The brand formerly known as Asahi Pentax, which gave us spot metering, does not deserve being subjected to so much ridicule. Just call every camera "Ricoh". It's OK. Ricoh has a nice reputation for great cameras too. I'd rather never see a Pentax-branded camera again than see gold point and shoots (and DSLRs with LED lights on the handgrip) with an once prestigious name on it.
You so do not understand me Starbase218 I was trying to show that Samhains reply was based on assumption and hear say. Affordable Full frames are only about 2 years old. Introduced at Photokina 2012. I am not the idiot waiting for 8 years, I've been waiting for two years. I do think you telling me I am not Doing Pentax any favours with my posts. (as if that's why I am posting) is pretty presumptuous of you. Please refrain from correcting my style.
@starbase I did not comment on the full frame. I brought it up. He ridicules it. I tell him to get his facts straight. You tell me I shouldn't because you think your K-3 sucks. Sell it!
@ignorant person a debate Someone like me? You are not equipped to as you so aptly demonstrate.
Dear Ignorant person. Lack of arguments leaves you with the ad hominem.
Get your facts straight samhain. 2004 we're talking about the Ist Ds http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentaxistds not the K10D (2006). The first prototype the Pentax MZ-D was shown at photokina 2000 (when you were playing your Nintendo gameboy) http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2734370763/pentaxdigitalslr
They put the DA 18-55 AL WR on the KS-1. It will not be sold with this lens. The Ks-1 is not weather sealed. But it looks better than with the plastic DA-L, which is ancient.
Dear ignorant person look at the Pentax K-3 and K-50. Both best in their class. Ignore the K-s1 as it is a desperate attempt to draw hip youngsters. Just wait for the full frame that will put the D610 and 6D to shame and give de 750D a run for its money.
Pointless exercise for the snob. Just get this one instead. http://en.leica-camera.com/Photography/Leica-M/Leica-M-AAt least there is a reason it has no back lcd: (also just launched bot not news on this site).
Go to the Ricoh stand. They have new lenses to show.
Almeida: How is this a "portrait lens"?
D1N0: On paper this is a great camera. It all depends on the execution though. You cannot just throw together a bunch of specs en expect it to be a great camera. I'll await the reviews before passing judgement. Fuji and Olympus/Pana better watch out for this one and Sony has yet to make a camera in this class (mirrorless with centered evf, (A3000 doesn't count, too cheap ass. Of course the is the A7 but that isn't cropped).
Not so much different in size from the GH 4.
D1N0: Great Job Canon. Now stick in a Sony sensor.
No it's an opinion. I've seen Canon shots.
specs page is missing.
noise.... Color reprodoction? O please Canon overcooks it's files.

At 15fps you could almost make full res video with it ;)
D1N0: This is probably what de D600 should have been in the first place.
I forgot about the df.....

Karl Gnter Wnsch: If the "Sport" version is geared at the professionals which do not care that much about weight, why isn't it at least f/5.6? As f/6.3 they are missing the limit of the focusing systems - and since that is a physical limit the focusing on almost all DSLR will be compromized and not function as advertised and guaranteed by the manufacturers!
The D750 AF has the following specs:Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500 II autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning, 51 focus points (including 15 cross-type sensors; f/8 supported by 11 sensors), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5 to 3 m/1 ft 8 in. to 9 ft 10 in.)
So it will work up to F8. Probably F11 with the center point. Not that it is a good idea to use a tc on a superzoom anyway, but it is not impossible.
with the -3 ev focussing on the D750 it should not be a problem.
