ZAnton: Such contests have only one aim: to show to "western world" how rest of the world, helpless underdeveloped unter-menschen suffer, degrade, live in slumps, dirt and deseases.
That just cynical.
Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.
I don't believe most russians care about people being gay, but the government has used laws to limit gays to express their nature. This makes them vulnurable for bullying and unprotected from it. These laws have nothing to do with secular beliefs of Putins government, they are there for political reasons. The Russian orthodox church is a power in Russia and Putin wants this power behind him. Also gay rights is a liberal thing. Liberal=incompatible with russian politics. Liberal politicians are villified and prosecuted by the governent.
Next time instead of destroying all the lenses, just send them to me.
spidermoon: Like the K-S1, the DOF switch is replace by the video switch, and there is no dedicated button for dof check. Maybe nowdays it's an outdated feature since you can review your picture after taking it.
It's on the K-3. Focus peaking is not aimed at lower end. It just wasn't in the Prime II used in the K-5 (II(s)), It first appeared in the prime-m in the k-01.
It's just a matter of putting more processing power into the camera, so you can line up different shots. It would crop the image a little and would probably have mixed results.
ChuckTa: I looked at the full size photo of the Japanese man in outdoor and I see a greenish outline to the right side of the face down to the neck and suit. Is that CA but green colored?
With wide range I mean I had to use about 3/4 of the correction space on the bar in lightroom. It is not very wide from a size point of view.
It has a pretty wide range between green and blue. That is going to be a problem with foliage. Can't remove it because leaves will get a grey border.
you can still assign that function to the green button.
Anirut J: Should I buy this K-S2 or should I wait for the FF?
Pentax, you're so mean! Great things are coming out all at once!
BTW, Although my K-r went crazy and I got angry and threw it hard on my lawn, it still works except for the AF system. Now, that's one tough camera in spite of it having fallen and rolled in a boat until a piece of the body chipped away and with over 40K shutter actuation in three years.
Pentax ... I still believe in you!
Totally different league. You can buy this for $500 in half a year. The FF will be at least $2000 and you'll still need lenses. When you are going to be throwing with it i'd advise you to get an old k10d.
120mp video? CCTV wet dream?
Rutterbutter: Lets see what would we want...- 36+ Megapixel- 1/250th / sec flash sync or faster- wifi- focus peaking- Dx lens compatibility- Faster Focus speed and sensitivity- 4K video/30+fps- Touch screen with toggle to de-activate- 7+FPS- ISO Native 50-102400 or higher- 100% viewfinder- Weather sealed/magnesium body- Digital focus crop. Like D7100 for maximizing focus coverage- Better in camera HDR and live preview of filters- No AA filter- 1000 shot battery approx- Swivel screen and articulating.
Feel free to add to this. but this would probably be the best selling camera ever..
I doubt it will be compatible with DX lenses. DA on the other hand.
Robbie Corrigan: DA wide = DA12-28 f/4 not 10-30, bars don't reach 10 or 30. Probably a successor to 12-24 f/4
D-FA* 24-70 f/2.8 (High end normal zoom, sister / brother to D-FA* 70-200)D-FA 28-105 f/variable (FF Kit lens perhaps, good range for normal photography)D-FA(*?) 15-30 f/2.8 or f/4 (Will it be a STAR line? or Mid-Range)
The FA 28-105 3.2-4.5 wasn't such a good lens. It will be a new design. DFA 28-105 F4
wildkat2: Dollar to a doughnut the two wide end zooms are actually rebadged Tokina lenses. The DA is likely the Tokina 12-28 f/4 and the D-FA is likely the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8
mgrum: The fact that the mockup has been made with a 3D printer suggests they are still a long way off releasing this camera. I do hope it does come to fruition though.
Maybe they'll offer the camera as the first printable dslr. Soon to be found on tpb.
Marty4650: It will probably be a great camera, but it sure is an ugly beast!
wait until you see the colour options.
It'll have sensorshift super res like the oly e-m5
D1N0: If they can make a Sigma mount they can make a K&A mount too. Who the hell owns a Sigma dslr...
I'm not faulting Sigma for supporting their DSLR, but for not supporting Pentax and Sony. At least not at launch.
KL Matt: Dream come true. But why is the 35 in Pentax mount, but the 24 isn't????
This is not exactly a walkaround. Nice compact f2.8 would be nice.
K-mount was later for the 35. They are waiting to see how well it sells.
If they can make a Sigma mount they can make a K&A mount too. Who the hell owns a Sigma dslr...
