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.
Will A-mount die?
Smaller sensor compared to other interchangeable lens systems.DPREVIEW! It's P&S camera with interchangeable lenses. Please, compare with P&S cameras ONLY. I see that RAW result is very good for P&S camera.
the advertising is the engine of sales. DPREVIEW helps to their owners to sale cameras. no any problem, just business.
It's interesting for not higher than 200USD
Design from hell
Don Kiyoti: Why didn't you use the 01 Prime for this test?
the best apertures of 01 Prime are f1.9-2.8. which apertures did you use?
Hope they will launch K-02 soon with another body and with EVF
I'd like to see more faster lens.
marike6: GR RAW files are noisier than Coolpix A files, both in the RAW Comparison tool and on DxOMark sensor ratings scores (GR's 972 ISO vs Coolpix A's 1164 ISO), while colors from the DNG files aren't as good by DPR's own admission (see Con #2) and in the sample images. Yet DPR has RAW IQ between the GR and Coolpix A as the same?
It's can't be lens difference as both lenses scored identically on DxOMark Lens Test (see DxOMark front page for GR lens test).
It's seems fairly obvious that the GR has better ergonomics along with the superb GR menu system. But the A has the class leading Sony Exmor sensor, and seems to produce a better looking files / images (See review samples).
My K-5IIs has green color cast when I use DXO Optics :)
There are marked ISO and real ISO - DXO is not the Bible. There is measurement inaccuracy. First of all. The second - do you really think that we could see the noise difference between 972 and 1164.:) ?
Your argument is not weighty.
Go to measurements - and we will see that ISO of Nikon and Ricoh = 99% identical. If you pay attention at SNR18% - we can see that maximal difference in noise 1 dB at ISO6400 in favor of Nikon. But the diffrence at ISO100-3200 is from 0.3 tiil 0.6 dB.
A difference in low-light ISO of 25% represents 1/3 EV and is only slightly noticeable. The difference between 1164 and 972 is 1/4 EV.
Outstanding. Well done, Ricoh.
ogl: New Imaging Technologies (NIT) offers world class CMOS imaging sensors based upon a unique and patented pixel technology which provides intrinsic high dynamic range response of more than 140dB, no noticeable fixed pattern noise and operability without image artifacts to more than 90°C.
Are you sure that Fuji-Panasonic technology for digital cameras with big sensors?

It could be sensors for smartphones. Small sensors with high dynamic range - from 87 till 140 dB are well-known 10 years ago.
Kodak 40 MP sensor has 70 dB dynamic range. 645D with such sensor has 12.6 EV dynamic range. D800E's sensor has close to 80 dB.
The main question - how big will this new sensor be? If it will be small, it's not interesting at all
Important remark: 1.2 times higher sensitivity than Panasonic sensors have now.
I don't understand...It's easy to buy any mirrorless camera with kit zoom. Smaller and faster. Cheaper. With the same result. Or maybe better.But....$2850 for slowest zoom and APS-C sensor...
