Giklab: I bet that this doesn't come in Pentax mount because it will be released later as a DA lens.
Pentax only has a 100-400 something on the roadmap.
Karl Summers: What's with the red ring? We supposed to think it's a Canon L?
other people will mistake it for a xbox 360. (But they won't buy it anyway)
Notice the reference to the old takumar m42 lenses in de zoom ring.
samhain: Interesting that they went with red...
Red signifies the new HD coating. Green is for smc.
Can't Sony just awaken the Minolta Brand for regular dslrs with ovf and fllippin' mirrors in them?
D1N0: People who use lenses without an aperture ring on this camera should loose their license :p
that would be entrapment.

ponyman: I do wish DPReview (and others) would stop promoting this Apple stuff. There are plenty of other places where iSheep can go for their fix. Can we please get back to the topic of serious photography. Sorry but I've just been getting so frustrated about this. DPReview is still arguable the best photography site, but it's becoming increasingly diluted. Whilst I appreciate that tablets can have a use in digital photography the constant biased promotion of Apple products is really grinding. I have no intention what so ever of buying any Apple products.
iSheep don't look any further than their iUniverse. Apparently dpreview staf consist of iSheep adhering to the great iSteve from the new iReligion that is much worse than fundamentalistic iSlam.
We are Larry and Sergei! Resistance is futile.
Americans dressing op as native Europeans. We are not amused!
He doesn't fool me. That's a Cowboy posing as an indian. Even the horse looks embarrassed.
Demon Cleaner: I find it rather incongruous that a system of cameras with a much smaller sensor (m43) all but matches the 70D for image quality, yet DPR still gives IQ an extraordinarily high rating. Go figure.
oly are prbbly still cheating on their iso value.
Greynerd: Living in gale battered England it is always intriguing how in the US you can build houses on the beach. You must have very good weather most of the time punctuated occasionally by storms of the like we never see.
AngryCorgi Half My country is below sealevel. We do not build houses on the beach though. We also rarely build wooden houses.
thx1138: Lot of people are going to be disappointed when they see there results. They think a 36MP sensor sans AA filter will magically give them tack sharp results, yet fail to realise how such a camera will demand better technique, good glass and often a tripod to truly realise the potential. This thing will be brutal for showing up even the slightest motion blur. For landscape hands down you'll want a tripod, no more being lazy. Hand held you'll want faster shutter speeds or stick to IS lenses. I guess if you are going to be down sampling that'll help, but then you might as well get the A7.
Of the several full sized shots I looked at, none were tack sharp (yes I do realise these are huge images), and wouldn't be any better than say a D600/6D/5DIII if resized, for per pixel sharpness. I think for this type of happy snap walkabout in general you won't get full value of the 36MP. Of course their be plenty of exceptions and some people have steadier hands and some will have IS lenses.
you blow up every pixel to a screen pixel when you pixelpeep. It does'nt matter how big the sensor is and how many pixels, you will see the same sharpness, which is mostly due to the lens used. Get a high density (4k) screen and you will have much sharper 1:1 close up views.
No it won't be. People buying mirrorless want it to be so they can justify buying a stupid camera.
Ron Zamir: Why the hell not 24mm.????
it has 24mm but the camera will wrongly report that as 110
dslr performance my ass
D1N0: It's the only camera in it's category. Of course it gets a gold award. It is not smaller than some compact dslr's though. (except in depth). So what is the advantage over those camera's?
there is no other camera than this one. All dslrs suck. Olympus is god. Good bye!
dslr systems have more choice in lenses. next!
lazy lightning: Still just the same flat, lifeless images as all m4/3 cameras. No separation (not talking bokeh), everything in the image appears to be on the same plane giving the impression of a one dimensional universe. Lovely colors though!
Bigger sensors give freedom to images. People who don't see that don't see.
