  • No matter what Pentax came out with, it couldn't possibly be the perfect camera or even desirable for everyone. We all have completely different wants and needs.  That said, I think they showed ...
  • Each supplier will place an order to receive "x" units. When they're sold, they change the date to match that of their next shipment.  It is very likely that their first shipment has pre-sold and ...
  • As long as you're not taking many pictures, another option would be to sell both and buy an expensive manual macro. If you hardly ever take photos, then a slightly lesser build quality and manual ...
  • No sense hurting any innocent freight trains.
  • Lenses differ by so many factors: Build quality Speed (aperture) Quietness Focus Speed Resolution Zoom Range ...and probably a few that don't come to mind at the moment. Whether a lens is "worth" ...
  • #3. I much prefer the interesting foreground. I think the lines and perspective is far more dynamic.  The top two remind of photos that 90% of people would take with such a scene.
  • Why use a lame one to justify the purchase when you could use a good one? I don't care how good you are at photography, better autofocus will sometimes give you better results. Greater dynamic ...
  • I don't disagree with most of that.  Dials and buttons are much easier than menus and digital readouts.  As long as we're not talking about bringing out cameras that are significantly less ...
  • I guess close is a matter of interpretation, but I don't think they are even in the same universe as far as features go. Got to be over a hundred feature on the Fuji that were not on a Spotmatic. ...
  • "infinitely complex" is not how I'd describe it.  Once you spend a little time learning the features, they are fairly easy for the most part. I agree that some things are better when made more ...
  • I'm not referring to how it looks, in fact I don't know that the OP said he wanted retro looks.  I'm talking about how it functions, and I'm not aware of a current digital camera that works like a ...
  • Those of us who used a spotmatic are so few, that I'm guessing few will even know what you're referencing. The vast majority of people are looking for more tech, not less. If I need a tiny camera, ...
  • FF shines when the light is low, dynamic range is important or if you like a really narrow depth of field option. It also has more lens options for wide angle shots. I'm guessing the autofocus ...
  • I'm sure they could, but that would not change the ship date, only the announcement date.
  • Replied in dust/sand?
    If you're saying a person copying that would be stupid, yes I agree.  The person in the video was doing this without knowing the outcome in advance and was therefore prepared to ruin his camera. ...
  • Replied in dust/sand?
    If my purpose is to demonstrate the durability and seal quality of the camera, then no, it is not stupid. It is a smart way to make a point.
  • You said it quicker than I could, but it's the first thing that popped into my mind.  Maybe the future will bring more innovations to move the EVF ahead, but definitely innovation is not = to ...
  • New people get into photography every day. Some of those will choose a Pentax for their first camera. Some of those will become a pro and will continue to use Pentax if the upgrade path is there. P ...
  • The articulating lcd only adds $1.30 to the cost.
  • Replied in What I expected
    I figured they made it the way they did, because it would be able to take more abuse, which is what a FF is all about. Those claiming it looked flimsy made me laugh. How could you possible know ...
