ogl: Good machine with no good colour. It seems to me the colour is sacrificed to all functions.
Terkwoiz - why do you think that all information has the link in internet? :)
I'm not fan of any brand. It's silly. I don't care what is the best or the worst. I just say D500's colours are no good for my eyes.
Сolour filter arrays could be ordered by the manufacturer. As well the improvements in microlens could be ordered. There is main version of sensor and there are the revision of sensors. That's why ALL cameras in RAW with the same sensor have different colours. Do you want argue about it? Could be closed, but never be 100% the same.You can't make 100% identical colour from, for example, Nikon and Pentax camera with the same SONY sensor even in converter. K-1 and D810 are different, colour nuances are individual. JPEG engine is another story - it's work of software. If you have a look at DXO information about camera's colour, you can see the difference even in cameras with the same sensor of different camera's makers.
Colour filters for sensor are different for each camera of different manufacturer. It's fact. It couldn't be fixed by software at 100%. Yes...You can change a lot of settings in RAW converter, but you can't change colour filters. It's forever. My eyes don't like D500's pictures colours. The bleached colours. It looks like somebody is grudge to add blue, green and red...
Good machine with no good colour. It seems to me the colour is sacrificed to all functions.
It's was my favourite photo site. Immortal memory to Michael.
zeratulmrye: not bad optical quality but the weight and size... geez
Weight and size are good.
ogl: The problem is not body shape of K-1. The problem is Sigma doesn't follow the specs of K-mount and makes mount ring of bayonet wider. For example, 70-200/2.8 II HSM has 65.7 mm, the original Pentax lenses has 58.5-59 mm, the max. diameter should be not wider than 63 mm. The widest diameter of original Pentax lenses is 63 mm.
I think Sigma is junk. Was, is and will.
Jonathan F/2: Will Sigma replace the part that gets scratched?
The specs of K-mount could be found in every original Pentax lens. FA50/1,4 has 63 mm. It's the widest variant.

88SAL - No. You are wrong. The problem is not body shape of K-1. The problem is Sigma doesn't follow the specs of K-mount and makes mount ring of bayonet wider. For example, 70-200/2.8 II HSM has 65.7 mm, the original Pentax lenses has 58.5-59 mm, the max. diameter should be not wider than 65 mm.
The problem is simple - Sigma even can't produce mount ring for K-lenses under specification - not wider than 65 mm (max. diameter), never checked the real diameter of real Pentax cameras - 58.5-59 mm, doesn't pay any licence fee to Pentax. It's Sigma's fault and they will fix it. It's good.
Make "Turn LCD off" in menu and you get camera without LCD.
Pentax K-3II is a bit sharper in RAW
ogl: Like nothing
I like the beauty, not everyday's hell.
ogl: The lens is the main part of the camera. If there is no sharpness at all, how to use such camera?
Funny... how do you explain the difference between software ISO and measured ISO? For example, indicated ISO1600, 3200, 6400 of X100 are the same ISO1000 as DXO had measured. All other cameras have same trick only in expanded mode. Expanded mode is software ISO too.
Do you insist on that there is no real ISO in camera? The ASA and DIN film speed standards have been combined into the ISO standards since 1974.The current International Standard for measuring the speed of color negative film is ISO 5800:2001 (first published in 1979, revised in November 1987) from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Related standards ISO 6:1993 (first published in 1974) and ISO 2240:2003 (first published in July 1982, revised in September 1994, and corrected in October 2003) define scales for speeds of black-and-white negative film and color reversal film, respectively.
The determination of ISO speeds with digital still-cameras is described in ISO 12232:2006 (first published in August 1998, revised in April 2006, and corrected in October 2006). DXO measures ISO speed under such standarts. The ISO system defines both an arithmetic and a logarithmic scale. The arithmetic ISO scale corresponds to the arithmetic ASA system, where a doubling of film sensitivity is represented by a doubling of the numerical film speed value. For example, a film rated ISO 200/24° is twice as sensitive as one rated ISO 100/21°. If DXO measure ISO1000 - it means it's ISO1000 under ASA method of scale.
Measured ISO = real ISO.
