Congrats Raja...What a shot!
kff: very nice, indeed, but in the hands, it reminds me bakelite Trabant (or very cheap Fujifilm bridge), not DSLR ... and price is like a good made DSLR :(
You don't have to post links to such limited (and quite meaningless) comparisons to convey K5's superiority. It's a great piece of photographic equipment from what I understand with great sensor engineering, fabulous high-ISO perf and build quality but in the end all those simply don't matter! Nikon is a global brand and as such D5200 is a global DSLR with Nikon putting in lots of efforts and resources into marketing, servicing and maintaining that reputation across the globe. Can the same be said about Pentax products? Unfortunately not!
Thanks guys, was waiting for this one!
Breathtaking formation and great capture!
keeponkeepingon: "once you go below APS-C the next logical size is 1/2.3 inch'"
And this is reason #5 why I am dropping canon after 20 years and too many cameras to count. Idiotic management.
How can anyone in canon leadership make such an inane statement given the popularity of the S90/S95/S100/S110? All four cameras were certified hits, and all use a sensor bigger than 1/2.3 inch.
And if he would take his canon blinders off just for a second he might notice that M43 cameras have taken over nearly 20% of camera sales in his own country:
What an amazing statement. Right up there with you will never need more than 640mb of ram.....
Yep, sometimes even vastly experienced people make mistakes like these. Foreseeing possibilities is a gift, no doubt, but the real success lies in adapting to those possibilities. IMHO, Canon is just waiting for others to take the plunge and warm things up while the firm redesigns its own sensor manufacturing pipeline and maybe even get to a new process node. Once that happens, Canon will suddenly start to see helluva lot more logic beyond 1/2.3 inch just like MS did in >640K RAM or IBM in >5 computers! :)
