  • I just noticed that the Fuji X-T1 is classified as a "semi-professional interchangeable lens camera", just like the K-3. Hence, the scores should be comparable. Surprisingly, the X-T1 is said to...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    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...

  • Dear Richard, thank you very much indeed for your response. Much appreciated! Pros and Cons are not a check list, nor have the every been 100% consistent between reviews OK, let me quickly...
  • The K-3 image stabilisation in video mode is not hardware based, i.e., it does not use the shake reduction system, but a software-based solution instead. It is a shocker that Ricoh told you that it...

    The f/2.8 AF sensor in the centre with improved accuracy and the general ability to focus at -3 EV should have been mentioned (and listed as "Pros").

    @Richard Butler:
    Apologies for mentioning "In-camera raw processing" as a not-listed "Pros" point.

    Why is "Built-in sensor-shift shake reduction effectively stabilizes all mountable lenses" not a pro for the K-3?

    It is for the K-5 II.

    Richard, you wrote "DxO does not report ISO accuracy or even test it."

    Here is a quote from DxO that contradicts your statement:
