steelski: I posted this to Siomn Joinson at DPReview over a month ago. Thank you for actually getting around to posting something about this.
Also, This is a Ricoh initiative.
You guys mention Ricoh twice in the whole article, and not in the headline.
I really am starting to believe that there is something that you guys have against Ricoh Pentax.

Thanks for changing the headline on something that actually mattered. I do not find it tasteless. What I find bizarre is that I read this article a month ago, looked through the official web page and was really moved by the efforts of all involved. I would give them a standing ovation if it were possible. It just looked as if the company who made it possible was just a side note. It made me slightly miffed.
It would be like the headline.
Man U lose to some low division team 4:0, obviously not quite the same, but you get the point I hope.
I forgive you for calling me a troll.

Controls and handling page seems broken.
Otherwise a nice short review.

Aur: "The other thing is heat. Because the sensor is always on, it generates heat. So with current technology we believe the time is not right for us to make a large sensor mirrorless camera. "

I wonder what this means for the longevity of a full frame mirrorless. They hint they ran into heat problems obviously, I know a Sony mirrorless can actually physically shut down in a hot climate when you've been shooting for a long time, especially with video, and Nikon has some patents to try to cool down the sensor. The camera will simply shut down to try to protect the sensor from the heat.

I would imagine its to do with the fact that the sensor shift on Pentax cameras works with magnets at the moment. The sensor floats. Imagine putting a heat sink on it. Making it heavy, less effective. If they had a lighter sensor or one that produced less heat. It might be ok for mirrorless then. Alternatively in lens IS would work fine orIS like Olympus.

ChowMonkey: All pictures this year are beautiful but I personally think this runner up from Jerome Sessini about MH17 should have won..

@ ipecaca

My point is that the winning photo pales in comparison to the Donetsk picture in terms of storytelling, composition and emotional impact.

AlexDROP1984: The World is changing. Today photographers are merely illustrators to those stories that they describe in letters and not in photons/light. Do more story inside and through the picture and less away from it.
IMHO none or the photos are fascinating, full-fledged and comprehensive. A few are memorable. And the first one is dull whatever the description it contains.
Overall this pitiful story is all about the contest as well as modern journalism serves to politicians and not to photojournalists.
N.B. there are countries where gays are violated in more harsher ways and even to be executed. Are jury members aware of gays and other minorities violations in Saudi Arabia for example? Or it has got an indulgence, doesn't it? Wet of oil... Gay issue becomes a valuable good and/or a weapon. It has little to none to problems of real people.

Did you not know that Russia is the enemy of the west at the moment. So their gay right issues take center stage.
who cares about the merits of the other photos, Politics is much more important.
The photo pointed to by ChowMonkey (one of the runners up) is one that you could just have a small caption on. Eg. " Crash of flight MH17, Ukraine"!

That photo is immense!!!!
And yet a staged gay photo won.
Any questions are redundant.

steelski: I would say that the lenses would most likley be
DA Wide zoom 12-28mm F4
D FA Large diameter wide zoom 16-30mm F2.8
D FA Large diameter standard zoom 24-70mm F2.8
D FA Standard zoom 28-110mm/115mm F4-5.6

ok, the reason I say 16 is because the bar is a little in front of the 15mmlimited IMO, and I say 110/115mm because the bar goes beyond the 5% of the 100-200mm space. IMO.
we will see in time, but this is what I see.
Also I do not see what the problem would be if it was not quite a 2x zoom (the wide one)

So, no flash popup button, and one extra button by the left side near the AF mode select.
Any ideas as to the function?

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (400 comments in total)
In reply to:

iAPX: When talking about price, maybe it's interesting to state that this is a Germany-made camera, not a camera built in China or Corea: it has a clear impact on the price.
As well as the level of craftmanship, and materials.

Leica X is expensive, but clearly on it's own league when you consider these factors.

The reason I laughed at Corea is possibly not just for the fact that he spelt it that way.
Apple make things in China, Nikon makes some cameras in Japan, as does Fuji. These tend not to have such an unbearable premium on them when compared to panasonic.... I meant leica

In reply to:

Angus Rose: The angle of view is so narrow, the aperture is so high and the glass is so heavy, that it becomes unsuitable for almost everything.
I'd rather save a lot of money by using my brain to move my legs, to get closer to the subject.

Mike, you can use a much cheaper telescope, the moon hardly requires AF.

In reply to:

foto guy: Who cares? These and other cameras can shoot a decent pic at quite high ISOs. Do you think you folks could focus on something important for a change? Perhaps photography, for instance.

Simon, this is because there was a delay with the K3 review....... You know it makes sense. !!!! :P

Bill T.: For only three times the price you could duct tape a $600 Samsung phone onto a 50mp CMOS Hassy. Think about it.

Or get a Pentax 645z for less than this..... And an iPhone/Samsung whatever..... And a second hand lens.

Yanko Kitanov: Poor bokeh, horrid out-of-focus areas and poor focus-transition rendering...this is welcome though as it makes the original (and better in these areas) Sigma 50 1.4 cheaper! :-)

Zeisschen.
I don't think you get it. Laugh all you want, but the out of focus at these apertures is always more important than the infocus. The fact that the lens has great sharpness and contrast seems to just make for a boring image. You also misunderstand the term character . As you know we all have character, good or bad, just like we all like the antihero vs the goodytwoshoes trying to do what's right. Although we respect him.
