It's basically an M9, but funnily enough, just put on a 'cheap' 28 Elmarit, and no DSLR system in the market could even match the image quality at low ISO. Sure the price is still too high but it has a good sensor.

Finally! Let's see how soon it will be available! Though hopefully the CCD look can be retained with this new sensor...

FTW: I ow a D40, D200, Fuji S5 and a NEX-7, among other dusty things in my shelves and, if I compare, there is really nothing to be exited about. So, in exception of a lot of noise and a waste of money this D600, sames as Alpha 99 will not make your day, as I can find out by myself. I downed other samples form other sites, including Nikon, there was nothing that made my wallet jump out of my pocket. I am not religious, i compare what is comparable.

FTW means even if he wanted to invest, those D600 samples did not impress him. You should take a reading class before commenting...

Hopefully the QC is not Sigma's hit and miss style. I would like to know if the multi-coating does the job taming those 23 elements esp against bright light sources.

IQ must be good, but at $2800 it will also serve very well as a neck hanger...sort of cheaper version of M9

Let's see if these lenses will be available in stores before 2013...

Problem is, DOF at f2 is very thin - MF will be difficult. Canon's 135/2 L is an APO although the Zeiss might be better for that matter - but the Canon has very fast USM and already very sharp - at less than half the Zeiss price...

kewlguy: I don't see K30 has better IQ than T4i. At base ISO the 650D/T4i is sharper (check the RAW comparison). Also, Pentax likes to apply NR in raw files above ISO800. The 16MP sensor is good at high iso, why the raw NR? I prefer to keep all the detail intact and apply the NR myself...

walberty: read again. I said the T4i is sharper at 'base iso'. I did not say T4i wins in term of noise - only that K30 should not have NR in RAW! Brand affiliation? LOL I could not care less about such a foolish statement as I use more than one brand...

Still NR applied in RAW at high ISO...disappointing. It's a good sensor already

Good specs, new low-noise APS sensor, but I hope this time Pentax will give us true RAW at ISO1600~6400 without NR...

DPR is by far the most civilized site. There's even someone saying "...toy for stupid people..." wow!

J Parker: Hey, I've never spent more than $175 on a camera (that includes my DSLRs) and don't plan to -- but in fairness, photographers with an open perspective can be a wonderful thing.... The monochrome camera Phase One put out a while ago cost much more than the Leica -- $40,000 for the back alone -- and certain purchasers (fine artists, scientific photographers for example) found it quite justifiable based on their photographic objectives. Despite Phase One charging 5x more than Leica for a similar concept, I somehow don't remember Phase One being vilified in the same way as Leica has been by many of us.

Just as color photographs are remarkable in the painterly aesthetic they are capable of achieving, monochrome images can possess a scuptural quality that is no less remarkable. Hopefully, this concept will be embraced by other camera makers to the extent that prices come down to a point where all of who choose to can access it.

What you said! Problem is, it's DPR...nothing new with the sarcasm, bashing, envy, etc..
