waxwaine: I don´t know why but I can´t feel interest on drone shoots, at least knowing they are not made directly by human, but just selected from a bunch later.
I could find robots shooting nice and even beautiful, but don´t ask me to feel overwelmed emotion about them. Beauty is not the main subject of art.

I tried RX10 and hate how ssssllllllooooooowww is zooming in and out. I hope Panasonic FZ1000 could do it better.
Nothing more turistic in Paris, than turists themselves. By the way, I do not like your sort of HDR PP
Nice improvement on IQ. I hope price not to high.
nerd2: I am really puzzled who Nikon is aiming this system at with that sky high prices.
V3 body - $120032mm f1.2 portrait lens - $899 (which works like 85mm f3.5 on FF)10-100 f4-5.6 VR - $549 (which works like 27-270 10x zoom)30-110 f3.8-5.6 - $249 (which works like 80-300 zoom)
This system may make sense for outdoor sports shooting if nikon released lightweight, affordable f2.0 or f2.8 telephoto lens but all the zoom lens they have is SLOW f5.6 ones!
They have to get funds for D600´s trials from somewhere.
Seems Canon´s R&D department it´s working on the peak of their capacities.
I love Panasonic cameras!
An opposite construction concept than fragiles Sony´s bodies. Build to last.
RStyga: What Pentax has done with 645D/Z is unheard of and deserves a great deal of attention by the media. I second what Picasso Noir commented; it does indeed expose the marketing practices of the MF competitors who have been overcharging photographers for so many years. I hope Leica will be exposed in a similar fashion by a competitor; incidentally, Ricoh-Pentax nearly did it with GXR+A12 M but, unfortunately, did not follow up (although there is still some hope).
Everybody laughed out loud when Hasselblad came out with (sony´s) Lunar and Stellar and their ridicules prices and horrendus design, but the fact is that Hasselblad, Phase One and Leica were laughing on photographers, with their conventional/accepted/overpriced stuff, since decades ago.
At least they achieved a prettier body than what Sony without succes are trying to design for years.
"But if it's a DSLR-shaped thing that you need..."
Traduction: If you want to waste 600usd, don´t know what you want as a camera except that is something to hang on you neck to convince yourself and other fools you know photography, run to this cr6p. If you it´s not your case, runaway from this cr6p.
Class A: The X-T1 is said to have better performance than the Pentax K-3 (can easily be seen when turning on the "Compare" mode for the subscores).
Yet, the K-3 manages 720 shots per charge vs the 350 of the Fuji X-T1.
The K-3 also has a higher frame rate (8.9 vs 8.2) and a deeper JPG buffer (68 vs 40).
So the X-T1's AF must be sensational to compensate the above performance disadvantages. Unfortunately, the X-T1 has not been subjected to the AF-C test the K-3 went through. Why not?
Finally, how can you claim that the X-T1's focus accuracy (& metering) is better than that of the Pentax K-3, if you haven't looked at the AF accuracy of the K-3 in a systematic manner at all (this was one of the aspects you dropped)?
BTW, the X-T1's electronic viewfinder may be very good compared to other EVFs, but to rate it better as the optical pentaprism of the K-3??? For sure, in terms of "performance" again, the K-3 will do much better in a pan when burst shooting.
Richard, I skip that page, my mistake, my excuses for my comment about it, XT-1 traking AF looks really excellent. Otoh, even you mention ISO setup as a Con, I believe that it's a hughe CON, because on real shooting action, you must have fast control, at least, of the 3 principal parameters of photography: shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
Seems tough DPR new tests are made for serious gear like K-3. Not "convenient" to apply the bicycle guy AF test on Fujis, ha? On my own review about Fuji I just reproved it because I couldn't find the way to set ISO in 2 moves with out loosing my subject from focus.
justmeMN: This camera can't be any good, because it (gasp!) has a mirror. :-)
As some videos on youtube shows, 645D shutter is more silence as crippled sonys last ff, and has a G spot in the shutter as well.
Danyel39: I think as already suggested, even if emotionally not easy, that I might take a serious look at FF with VERY High Iso capabilities. I also often Crop, and image quality e detail rendition are critical.I really love the Outsider Philosophy of Pentax, humbly and quietly delivering what I consider the best aps-c camera 3-4 years ago ( the K-5). Now time has changed and I believe you cannot win the competition with selectable anti aliasing filter. The game , or the war, is on other grounds.
Shooting at ngiht you must consider first MF(Pentax 645Z or other), with lower budget any last generation of 135mm frame dslr. Any way, leaving Pentax(K-5II or K-3) for other ff camera you will loose f2.8 AF capability on lowlight condition. Not if you take 645Z road off course.
Lust. It´s like a diva: enigmatic, desirable and unreachable
paulski66: Well, on the plus side, at least we won't have to read any more posts from all the Pentax fanboys complaining "Where's the K-3 review?" every time DPReview posts a review of any other camera.
Don't think so. No comes Pentax 645Z time ;)
RichRMA: Well, the half-plastic exercise in cost-cutting (relative to its predecessor) the D7100 gets 85 points, I presume it is the strength of the Nikon lens offering that gave the lesser camera the edge?
Or maybe dpr are preparing the category to receive 8D and D400 possibly arrive, leaving 86% score available?
It has the best fps high speed continue shooting performance, since buffer get filled, of any price competitor(D7100), and imho that count for 4% more.
