wildkat2: Quiet but not so quiet that Pentax could be heard over the Canikon din. God forbid DPR said anything about Pentax…….
That's why the K-S1 was in the poll: What was the most interesting new camera at Photokina? I guess. Mr. Britton. Ricoh certainly doesn't price the K-S1 as entry level. (Whatever I may think of it).
They announced three camera's in the summer. K-S1, Q-S1 WG-M1. I know the company is called Ricoh, but they also carry the Pentax brand name. It just seems like the last dslr-maker next to Canon and Nikon deserves a little more attention on a digital photography website. Maybe you just didn't like the pr-guys hair.
Missed the interview with Pentax where you grilled them about revealing FF lenses without revealing a FF body.
firstname.lastname@example.org: Two different card types is perfect because not matter what type you have, you're in business.
Not many people have CF (really? Compact?) lying around. SD is now fast and big an reliable enough for any camera. There is even a 512GB card on the market
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.
Stupidity cannot be helped.
You are twisting my words or just too stupid to get them. You implied the K-3 sucks because I want a Full frame. WRONG. But I turned it back on you. I said I was not an idiot. I didn't call your imaginative Full frame waiters idiots. You did! Quote: "He may ridicule people who wait year after year for a hypothetical fullframe, and I actually agree somewhat on that point." Don't try to shove that in my shoes.
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.
Great Job Canon. Now stick in a Sony sensor.
