Daniel L: Next time try shooting wide open for a change, you are not inches away from the subject. Don't be shy.

Isn't the point is to see accurate the camera focusing is? why shooting everything at F5.6 on a 70-200mm? Forgot how to use aperture?

Since when is pro photography or action pics required to shoot wide open? That's more of a dpr measurebator/gear head fetish.

Couscousdelight: Now, please Ricoh, could you put a 1 inch sensor and a EVF in a Q ?
Instant buy for me...

The Q not a dead product yet? The V/J cams are dead from nikon.

Silat Shooter: As a former Pentax 67 user, I have a soft spot for Pentax. So really happy to see them with this winner! Very, very tempted to pick one up, only thing keeping me is my heavy investment in Canon mount glass. Wish the Sigma Art lenses were weather sealed, would love a 24, 35, 50, 85 set-up of weather sealed lenses to go with this body and just go shoot regardless of weather conditions.

Haven't handled one yet, no local dealers carry Pentax. So have to rely on sites like this and YouTube. Other than the investment in new glass to accommodate this camera, want to see how quickly, easily it is to change the focus points within the frame. I've become spoiled by a few current cameras I have that do that well. So it's a feature I now look for in any camera moving forward.

Loving this camera the more I read!

It's Ricoh now. pentax is just a name now.

matthew saville: It's reasons like this that I'm enjoying third-party brands and, basically, anything OTHER than Nikon or Canon.

Between Sigma and Rokinon, (and the new Tamron-inspired Pentax trio of 2.8 zooms) ...I think Pentax is now a DSLR system that really ought to be giving both Canon and Nikon semi-pro flagships a real spanking. Too bad consumerism is an addiction, and Canikon are the drug of choice these days.

That makes no sense. Canon isn't making lenses that have contact issues with their slrs.

sportyaccordy: Lol @ putting up a pic of a crop only lens for a fix for Pentax first and only FF DSLR. You guys have a funny sense of humor

Dude, the lens shown is on the affected lens list for the k1.

Howard: It's a good idea. Too bad it is for the EOS-M system and the focal length is too short. A 100mm or even 50mm for the DSLR would be nice.

The M system is for the casual user who want to take closeups of flowers. Need something longer and more advanced ? Go dslr.

jaxson: Summary: Pentax just enabled Beast Mode.

Ricoh. Pentax is just a brand name these days similar to Polaroid.

$99 to fix something that isn't broken.

That phone wouldn't fit in a pocket. The "grip" is too big. If you out a grip that doubles the phone area, you should just use a real camera.

endofoto: Pentax produced a full frame close to Nikon 810 with almost half price, it will make discount to 1600$ and than 1500$ in time. Nikon and Sony have significant quality issues. I think it will sell a lot.

It's Ricoh making the cameras. pentax is just the name Ricoh puts on their cams now.

xlabsmedan: Pentax have many good product, but people dont want to buy because their NAME, pentax must change their name to BLACK or PTX or Green or SHIFTX or anyname except pentax...

:D

It's Ricoh now. pentax is just a licensed name like Polaroid or Kodak.

stevo23: For those of us in the Sony system, this seems like good news.

You mean "having profit " :D

In reply to:

zakaria: Since Sony has entered dslrs market the price has been decreased.
You can compare prices now with the prices of first canon dslr 20 d as I remember..

Sorry but sony buying Minolta isn't why prices have gone down. Prices decline on technology over time. CD players no longer cost $1000 (yes initially they cost that much) if you can even find one to buy! Same for Blu Ray burners.

Tommygun45: In LR on my Mac with LR5 and 6, and now on my PC with LRCC I have the same stinking error all the time. When using the adjustments brush, after a certain amount of time it won't register. I will click on the brush, and then begin to make an adjustment, and nothing will happen. I found a workaround online that you toggle the on/off switch in the bottom left of the pane, and then it will come back to life, but that fix was from a 2013 article. How is this such a blatant bug that happens to me EVERY TIME I use the software, across multiple platforms and years, that still has not been fixed? Figure it out Adobe.

I'm sure having 2 installations of LR isn't contributing to your error ........

Eric Hensel: "world’s fastest, most flexible, and easiest-to-use RAW processor and photo editor on the market "
A tall order, right out of the gate.
I've used Lightroom for 4 years -it works well, but the interface and file-handling are beyond inscrutable for me. I'm trying Capture1 and having interface issues there, though it may be just lack of familiarity.
Let's see how this new one looks.

You know if you switch raw software you'll lose all your adjustment settings. So stick with LR.

All raw converters are "non destructive " because it's raw data not an image file.
