On CP+ 2015: Hands-on with new Pentax K-S2 article (194 comments in total)
In reply to:

tailings: What? Now you miss the 'disco lights'? Why don't you just come out and say it, you'd LOVE it all, (WR, IBIS, selectable AA, OVF, -3EV, even color combinations and blinking lights...), if only it said 'CANIKNONY' on the front.

Mean, that DPR will review K-S1 very soon :p
Well, honestly speaking, that disco light is out of the box, and it is still hard to perceive it as useful feature in photography industry. Pentax just make it, to test the water. And the result is, not so many like it but DPR.

I think it is one of the nicest color combo. Thank for the report.

jimrpdx: DPR streak is safe, you simply cannot wrote a Pentax note without a barb. It's insulting to the brand and to readers. No Canon articles about the M-series features not implemented in later announcements, no Olympus reports that note how you cannot tell them apart from six feet away. Pentax put LEDs on one camera that could flash in specific instances, and could be turned off.. yet the stigma will outlive the current writers and no doubt will come up again in 2045. Absurdity reigns.

Mid life crisis in DPR staff, that they can't be happy unless making fun of Ricoh or Pentax brand and their customers. I don't understand the way their thinking by mentioning unnecessary stuff.

Richard Murdey: ... and with a collapsible zoom. At least they are hitting the right notes again.

This goes up against the D5500 though, and the new Canon. Tough crowd.

Yes tough competition, there are also mirrorless APS-C from Fuji and Sony.

Leok: I decided this wasn't going to happen 4 years ago (despite annual rumours to the contrary). Sold all my Pentax gear and went Nikon instead. I'm so glad I did, no FF for all this time is why Pentax hasn't been taken seriously in the digital era.

Mark II had been obsoleted long ago. Now it is time for 5Ds with 50 Mpix :p

Now you should watch closely what Pentax will bring into the market. Ricoh is very serious in photography business and we can expect something good is coming.

I know why it is called Rebel, because there are two screws at the front body that will scare you... What a bad workmanship Canon has.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1316 comments in total)

This will be the most beautiful camera of the year. Though I am shooting Pentax, I admit that this one is so tempting.

I have had EPL-1, didn't like the image quality and then sold it. Looking at the EM-5 II's image quality now, I think this one is on-par with APS-C. I will seriously consider buying it in the future, of-course after I get Pentax fullframe :p

Gazeomon: This must be the ugliest camera I have ever seen and I shoot Pentax for 2 years now (K5IIs, K3). My K3 is ugly but a very good photographic tool, I can live with it. This hideous looking new FF thing must be a truly amazing camera then. Not that I am getting too serious about the looks of a camera but I had to swallow hard a couple of times.

You should compare it with Sony A900.

Sony Sensor ?

Russell Evans: "Some of us have been around long enough to remember the last time Pentax announced a full-frame DSLR, way back in 2001."

And some of us are smart enough to know isn't the same company making this announcement.

I wonder how many us are still using Pentax ?

Petroglyph: This is the same as RIcoh released the 645Z. They showed a prototype (concept camera) at CP+ last year and the 645Z was available by summer 2014. I still expect the final model of the new FF to be available in the summer 2015 but they've given themselves some leeway by saying sometime in the year. Likely features; high resolution FF sensor with optional 'crop mode', fully WR sealed body on an all metal frame (magnesium & stainless steel), similar ergonomics to other Pentax cameras, 3-position AA-simulator (off, low, high), In-body image stabilization, TaV mode, astro tracker OGPS, diffraction correction (jpeg), 8 fps burst, 14bit lossless raw compression, industry leading dynamic range, compatibility with about 65 million lenses, temperature operating range -10 to 45 C , 200000 mtbf shutter, 1/8000 shutter. etc. Also likely about 8 more lenses by 2016. What an interesting camera news day.

Amen. I hope it is true

On Price released for Brikk's 24k gold Nikon Df article (390 comments in total)

I've never heard Brikk as a company until I saw this product. But why Nikon Df ?
I think it is just because DPreview didn't give award to the Df's review, so Brikk make it happen

Wow, Ricoh keeps rocking with colorful gadget like this. Is the sensor just the same from before ? I couldn't find the pixel number in the article.

It will be more awesome if it can play music as well

On Pentax launches K-S1 Sweets Collection article (231 comments in total)

This version is looking good. I didn't consider buying it until I see this sweet collection. I will wait the price drop and get blue cream soda someday later. Interesting to read the concept and story behind here: http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/products/k-s1/interview/

Long way to go Canon, still can't beat what Pentax has achieved for fashionable DSLR. :p

In reply to:

Potemkin_Photo: Canon just needs to slash the entry price in 1/2.

Then you will get Pentax K-3 which is also great camera.
