2016 will be great year for photography. For Nikon, Canon, and Pentax they are not afraid with Mirrorless. See what they have released, and Pentax soon will also have their first fullframe DSLR.

Joe Ogiba: I get screenshots from my Samsung NX1 4K videos that look much sharper than that.

Too bad, Samsung don't survive any longer.

phoenix15: Hahaha, why so many negativity ? And why we pentaxian should worry about it ?

When the real thing coming, the opinion will change, and we will see the bright future for pentax brand.

You shouldn't think too much about trolls. They are everywhere, and especially here in DPR, they are well maintained. I rarely visit DPR recently because I don't see much covers about Pentax.

On article Going Pro: We interview Fujifilm execs in Tokyo (367 comments in total)

I like Fujifilm's executives. Their opinions are honest and straightforward. But their ambition to be (at least) number 3 in the next 5 years won't be easy to achieved. They need another format, not only APS-C, but also bigger format. Maybe directly going to medium format.

falconeyes: This Pentax FF looks tempting.

I hope for Pentax the D810 successor expected for about Spring too does not ruin the party.

Unlikely. This pentax fullframe is designed for loyal pentaxians who have been waiting for ages, and the current 645z users.

phoenix15: I am confused between new SDM and DC motor now. Which is superior ? 150-450 is using DC, 70-200mm will use DC also, but then this 24-70 is SDM
My opinion, disregard to the past traumatic syndrome, SDM is better to spell.

@Fogel70
My concern is, what if the new SDM is faster and quitter than Pentax's DC motor on 70-200 and 150-450, which are more expensive.
@Alex
I am not affraid with the old saying SDM was sudden death motor. I believe new SDM is reliable. But, I wonder how new SDM is compared to the Pentax's DC motor.

On article Ricoh teases spring 2016 full-frame Pentax DSLR debut (528 comments in total)

I will definitely get this baby by next year. But before that coming, I want to see what they can do with the lens. It is the most crucial part, as the body tend to be short investment, the lens will stay forever. I heard the rumours that this year is zoom FF lenses, and next year will be prime FF lenses. I wonder if they can make it as they had planned.

Fuji is extending the use of the current sensor with non-essential variant like this. I think Fuji need to try Sony BSI sensor, and make progress.

In reply to:

King of Song: This changes everything, at least for me. I knew this was going to happen. I was searching for a reason to buy the new Canon 5DSr, just because I'm already invested in the Canon system. But I already knew the Canon is obsolete, even before it is released. The mirrorless is just a better concept altogether. Sony has just done the seemingly impossible. That's break into to exclusive pro market, forever dominated by Nikon and Canon.

Does anybody want to buy a Canon 6D, with 35mm 1.4 Sigma Art, 50mm 2.5 macro, and 100 2.0 Canon lenses, all mint, for cheap? haha

PS> If Sony was really smart, they wouldn't sell this new sensor to Nikon...

Sony is making business with the sensor. They want to gain 40% market share, so there is no reason not to sell it to Nikon, Ricoh, or Leica.

Ricoh please, use this sensor for the next Pentax FF body.

On Connect post DPReview recommends: Best smartphone cameras (368 comments in total)

I consider Nexus 6 is the best buy now. I would consider Nokia/Microsoft if they change the body design. I don't understand why Nokia/Microsoft keep using old design from Lumia 800, which already out date and boring.

Upgradeable, full network compatibility and multiple OS - Just take out the card and its in flight mode.

Actually in Japan K-3II is more expensive than nikon D7200

On article Samsung NX1 Review (1254 comments in total)

"Overall, the NX1's autofocus system is fast and effective, however it can struggle in low light. Although we haven't been able to precisely quantify the limit at which this occurs, there's definitely a point at which AF performance drops off noticeably in real world use."

It is not easy to develop precise and fast focusing at low light situations. Canon 7DII and Pentax K-3 are still the winner in this regard. But overall, I like to see Samsung entering pro-APSC segment.

I like the idea of Samyang use Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) in naming their coating technology. Well, it is just like Pentax's SMC coating was stolen and improved, from super to Ultra.
