no thanks, although it will be a really camera to hack like the Nikon camera.
raimaster: with OVF pentaprism 100%, WR body, dual dial, per lens AF adjustment, focus peaking and superb IQ but price of mid-level K-30 is obviously the king of mid-level camera.
having a prism viewfinder for a camera in this class is a serious advantage over the dark and tiny mirror viewfinders found on other cameras in its class.
CameraLabTester: Pentax used to be running with Champions in the film era.
I wonder what happened...
Pentax users please don't get upset and blow your top. Truth hurts.
It used to be a very very good brand of a camera.
very slow to adopt new technologies.
gsum: If only Apple would go the same way as Kodak.
Then world will be much better place, without all the dumb apple fanboys.
seriously ridiculous.(in a good way)
no stupid optical viewfinder.
Canon Sx500 looks awful lot like the Olympus SP series of superzooms(even its missing an EVF). And whats more shocking about these cameras is that Canon has chosen to use Digic 4 processor instead of Digic 5 which was first seen on SX40 IS.
great, a good job such a grip would be much more usable than the wifi accessories sold by the manufacturers at insane prices.
sadly in India where I live its raining(monsoons) so might miss this wonderful opportunity.
I don't mind those cables as long as they don't come in the way of lens and sensor. this great news for many macro shooter as they can use their canon macro lenses to achieve higher magnification ratios with their canon macro lenses.
22mm lens will make a good combo with the EOS-M
not best looking mirrorless camera but certainly a decent one.
disappointing little camera, sensor is much smaller than recently launched premium compacts.
IcyVeins: Just wondering but why would you need f/2.8 for doing macro? Don't you usually want as much DOf as possible since you are focusing so close?
2.8 on macro is great for portraits, studio use and since its a 180mm lens you can use it for taking pictures of birds as well at that aperture settings.
lets hope the XQD format becomes a genuine replacement for the current CF cards. Sandisk should support this, as far as I remember they were one of the members who defined the standard.
InTheMist: That's actually pretty impressive. RAW?
yes it shoots raw.
wow, that is a big upgrade. it probably means we wont get a 7D mk II anytime soon.
Peiasdf: That’s a lot of fast primes. Good if the camera is smaller.
compared to zoom lenses, fast primes makes sense for a mirrorless camera system.
