Shame to have this turned into a political forum. This piece can be found elsewhere if anyone cares to read about it. DPR is not the place for it. What have this got to do with reviewing cameras and photography?

starjedi: Interesting. I saw Pixel shift + K3II easily beats D810!!!

Pixel shift was never meant for moving subjects in the first place. While D810 beats the K3II without pixel shift, so does the Pentax 645Z beating the D810 by a wide margin.

In reply to:

RichRMA: Pixel shift eliminates moire and sharpens up the scene, but is no where near as dramatic as the Olympus shift HR mode.

Dramatic does not mean better. Olympus does increase the file size.

Imagine a Pentax FF with pixel shift.

The K3 II jpeg color rendition is a lot better than the K3.

Against the Pentax 645Z the D810 is a shame.

Horshack: Given the choice I'd prefer a camera that doesn't turn off vs one that doesn't turn on :)

You can start worrying if it doesn't turn off after taking the battery out.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Lets give great admiration and encouragement to the content writers of this review.

They really have to scrounge up their adjectives to come up with describing this mediocre product that have been put on a pedestal by Market Spin Doctors.

Canon consumer cameras are the epitome of Marketing Spin.

.

Another boring boxy product. At this rate, Canon and Nikon will go the way of the dinosaur. Brand name recognition is not going to save them if this continues.

nikkornikon: I got a message from the President of Canon, Mr. Akihiro Canon and he wanted me to tell you all...If you don't like this camera, and it's over the top price, and no 4k, and our rather Old Dusty Sensor..or any up to date features on other cameras, then by all means, move along to Sony. Thanks...Mr. Akihiro Canon.

Mr. Akhiro Canon also spoke to me. He said he is firing the engineers that still build cameras using old sensors with no 4K video or built in EVF.

Compared to the Sony RX10 II, this roll out from Canon is a disaster. With the optional EVF add-on at around $250, it's about the same price too. Yikes!!!

In reply to:

the-bunker: Re missing EVF - maybe that's why canon have gone very quiet on this Camera - they are busy re-designing it (with an EVF)
Lets hope...

Yeah right. They finished putting it together and oops ... forgot the EVF. Now its an optional add on for around $250. It would be bad enough if it comes bundled with the camera at no extra cost.

Suntan: Very impressive tech. Too bad Sony can't cram a usable aperture dial and a shutter speed dial on that little RX100.

This is a forum for discussion and comments. I learnt a good deal from the many enthusiasts and pros that post on this board. Opposing opinions (critiques to you) are most welcome.

Yes, putting an aperture ring on the lens will make it thicker and less pocketable, and there's no real estate in the rear to add more dials without making the body wider and also less pocketable. Yes, I've picked up one and think its perfect design wise and control wise. Sony want to keep this winner as it is and I fully agree.

Is pre-buy buying before you buy and post-buy buying after you buy?

Putting an aperture ring would make the RX100 less pocketable, which is a key design feature of this model. Sony have in mind who they are targeting with the RX100. No wonder it is their best selling compact, and they keep improving it four times with practically no change in overall design and controls. Those who know little about photography (and there are plenty of them) rely on scene modes to simplify the camera settings. Call them amateurs if you may. With the LX100 they are restricted to auto settings with no mode dials. Sony is wise not to mess up a winner.

Then go get the LX100. The RX100 is not meant for you.

Where do do suggest they cram those dials on that "little" body?

I won't get the RX100 IV if i own an RX100 II. I'll go for the RX10 II.

Roadrunnerdeluxe: A great comparison and lots of pixelpeeping of K-3 II pixelshifted images vs. Nikon D810 and Pentax 645Z. Be excited, be very excited.

Imagine what a Pentax FF would be like with pixel shift.

Hugo808: Well of course it's bulky compared to mirrorless camera's. It's got a mirror in it.

Why is that listed as a negative?

Pentax K3II got a mirror too but it is not as bulky. It is a little thicker and heavier though, but less boxy:)
