Lower resolution than A7 and D610 and looks weaker than K-3.Not low noise. Not impressed IQ.
It looks like the camera which made from 3 different cameras of different time. Photoeclecticism. Bad work of designer. Set-off. No style, not conceptual.Even new Fuji, Sony A7 or Panasoniс are more stylish.
Is it real to switch this camera by one arm?
ogl: DPREVIEW - why did you put 560 frames with battery?
720 frames without flash and 560 with 50% flash.
I know. I have K-5IIs. But 560 frames is not correct info from DPR.
DPREVIEW - why did you put 560 frames with battery?
Greg Lovern: Regarding the battery life, that battery was introduced with the K-7 back in 2009. Maybe now, 4 years later, they'll be able to fit more capacity in an updated battery of the same size?
It means that K-7, K-5 and K-5II's users could upgrade cameras without buying new battery.
raimaster: at least 10 highlights: 1. 24 MP2. 8,3 fps - 23 raw buffer (first firmware)3. 25 crosstype sensor - 3 luminance flux4. On/Off AA Filter5. Robust WR - metal + magnesium alloy body6. AF -3EV7. 86K pixel metering 8. 200.000 shutter circle9. USB 3.010. Body IS.....also dual slot card, 14 bit raw video, focus peaking etc ...
there is opinion that AF on sensor has some disadvantages.
560 frames is with 50% flash, 720 frames without flash. Change data.
Battery Life- 720, microphone - stereo.I see 2 mistakes.
FotodeMX: Good job! New firmware 4 months after launch.
It's date of announcement, not launch. :) The camera is just 4 month at the shelves of photo stores.
Ricoh makes so "fat and tasty" firmwares.
3systermuser: this is definitly overpriced in any sense , Leica S is not real MF , it does not even allow us to swap backs.the real digital MF is called Phase One , I do not even consider current digital Hassel Blad as real MF system(it is not Fullframe MF).anyway, this lens should be priced around 3k , think about even the large format or real MF Rodenstock lenses cost only 4 -5k , so people who are not collector or brainwashed Leica name lover never pay this kind of money for just 37.5 mp camera system using gens behind Kodak CCD.in fact , this camera does not resolve any better than the cheap Nikon D800E, Lloyd proved it, if you do not believe this , go Lu-la or Getdpi MF forums or even better go directly to Lloyd's site, he compared the Zeiss 135mm APO for F vs Leica 125mm f2.5 for the S , and the Zeiss was sharper.
that said , I love my Leica M 9 , and I think I will get the M240 soon with the 50mm f2 APO, the new 50mm f2APO is a great lens , with exquisite modern barrel design.
All formats bigger than 24*36 mm and till 70*56 mm are medium formats. It's digital era and the manufacturers are free to produce and use any size for sensors.
Vitruvius: A 45mm medium format lens is not 35mm equivalent on "full frame". Perhaps the Leica system is not true medium format. Even so there is 6x4.5 or 6x6, or 6x7 etc.
Strange...I see that Samsung's photos are the best.
Camera with good sensor and good price at last. Glory to God that no X trans sensor inside.
No X-trans is good move.
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3537618no problem to make photos.
It's branding camera. And testing of technology.The price is not important.
TitusXIII: What a shameful way to waste talent and resources.
Such P&S camera is developed by 1 engineer for several weeks on PC.
Mescalamba: They need redesign, not just improved coatings and aperture blades (I prefer straight anyway, easier to get "stars").
Today Pentax shooter best bet is adapted lens and Sigma offerings.
FA50/1.4 and FA35/2 are not discontinued. Easy to buy new lenses.
