Brilliant initiative by a brilliant photographer.

JaimeA: Reading the specifications we found out that this camera has NO image stabilization. Totally nuts if you like closeups, interior and night shots.

So what's the point? It has a 150-year old proven device instead, called a "tripod socket". It is very possible to make excellent shots in low light due to the lack of any vibration.

And if need be, use a tripod. Jeez!

In reply to:

rondom: This camera is excellent looking until you start shooting with it, and then it looks like a dog with an erection. The built in cap makes it even worse.
One other point: I don't think anyone would be jumping up and down if they saw the lens performance before the built in digital lens correction kicks in.
(Having said that I can understand the enthusiasm over this)

Who cares what it looks like. The results is what really counts. I own and use cameras that are pig-ugly, heavy, old-fashioned and cumbersome. But they do take stellar pictures.

yonsarh: Proud to be Made In Korea products.

Korea, and it's gallant people indeed have much to be proud of. There's nothing wrong with a healthy dose of respect and love for one's own country - even though doing so is not, according to self-proclaimed "progressives" (which they are not) politically correct.

Johannes Zander: Act of Genocide!
Oh now, since it was the US it must be an humanitarian act of libaration in the name of freedom.

Tell that to the millions of victims of the Japanese imperialism of the time.

AlpCns2: I must say that Pentax is courageous to introduce such a rather specialized camera at this relatively competitive price point. It will be perfect for the fans of shallow DOF and fans of super-detailed landscapes. I can imagine that the IQ and resolution of stitched panoramas would be superb. Then again, who prints murals...

I would love to see a full review of this interesting camera. I wonder how well lovely old Zeiss Jena (P6 mount) lenses and (some great) Russian glass would adapt to this mount. Can we have a full review, DPR, pretty please?

Absolutely correct. But considering the shrinking market and the relatively small numbers these things sell in, I think it's courageous.

jackf00: Still neither Final review nor First impression review of the already shipping GH4 flagship from Panasonic.
Shame on DPReview !!
While most of competitor site of DPReview have already posted at least a long Preview or a Review, DPReview still don't go further than a single short and poor half page "quick summary" of the GH4 new Panasonic's flagship , three month after annoucement and now after it is released and shipping.
What a pity !

Not first time for Panasonic products, as DPReview provided the final Review of GH3 only 7 monthes after announcement and 5 monthes after release !
Same for GX7 and generally speaking for every Panasonic product !

What's the reason ? Come on DP Review, be more professional !

Maybe you should offer to help out to ease the workload? Maintaining a FREE service like this in a busy market is not easy, nor is it cheap. I'm sure they're working on it.

Quality takes time. Which is a very professional attitude.

jennyrae: it is fantastic lens for what it does and picture quality is amazing. period.

now stop with all nonsense about equivalence.

Caution: too many intelligent remarks is not allowed by the equivalence brigade. Or the sensor size brigade. Or the DOF fetishists. Or the UI "specialists". Or the IQ "experts".

Anyway... thank you for injecting some sanity.

In reply to:

Kater Karlo: Can anyone tell me from experience what kind of computer (preferably PC) I would need to develop such big RAWs and the resulting Tiffs / JPGs? I guess it must be a pretty fast machine, but what is the most important? Processing power, RAM, graphics card?
Thanks...

RAM and processing power. If you're not in a hurry a more pedestrian machine would do (2-core, 4-core) but lots and lots of RAM and a fast HDD (preferably also a solid-state drive) are a must.

If Ansel Adams would be alive today he'd laugh so hard at all these internet armchair "experts" he'd probably succumb to a heart attack.

km25: As I remember Kowa made a fine 6x6cm camera. It was a SLR like Hassi.. It was used by Pros of the age.

Indeed Kowa had, and still has, an excellent reputation for optics. In the past they made lovely cameras too - the Kowa Six, for example, and some rather spectacular dedicated wide-angle 35mm rangefinders with Seiko leafshutters.

Hmmm. I like and respect Nikon, but there's a bit too much "corporate speak" here and there, although there's openness as well. Nikon would do well by listening to their customers more. If they want to keep their customers happy, why not complete the DX range in terms of (wide angle prime) lenses, and update cameras that need updating (D300s).

Nikon should have a nice open group session with Thom Hogan, and learn a thing or two about customer satisfaction and retention, and product development.

Brilliant interview - you guys asked exactly the right questions. And the honest and open answers confirm much of what many have been expecting from Fuji. They got it right: "the only way is to keep innovating".

Great times to be a photographer.

Well done and tasteful, somewhat minimalistic video. Not revealing too much of course, but it does leave the impression of dedication, quality, and precision. Which is what (good) lens making is all about.

In reply to:

RyanBoston: I've had this camera since Christmas and love it. The workability in raw is incredible, especially with good glass. Amazing detail and colors! Pulling shadows is amazing.

I've had the D40, D60, D90, D5000, D5100, and T2i. The D5300 is my favorite out of them all and am amazed at the quality of the pics.

Slap a Sigma lens on the D5300 and be prepared to be amazed.

What Sigma lens, if I may be so bold to inquire?
