GX1 Mark II looks much better at low ISO
It's strange, but samples are really good. :) Good job of 1" sensor in hands of Samsung.
Not interesting photos
mike kobal: Sorry, but a sensor size of 44x33mm cannot be called medium format by traditional definition.This is a APMFS-C sized sensor (Advanced Photo Medium Format System type-C)
By the way, m4/3 is very close to APS-C in terms of IQ with very small size of bodies.
falconeyes: This will become the camera with best image quality ever made up to today!
(in terms of DxOMark, it should score around 105 Overall Score and 50MP, even though the jump from 35mm is small (0.79 crop)).
I hope that Ricoh releases the marketing money needed to make this a bold statement for Pentax being overall leader in IQ. The brand needs a bit of hype to make a come back, esp. in the US.
Falconeyes is scientist, no any sense to argue against him.
WRONG. Any sensor bigger than 24*36 mm is medium format.Learn it. Digital era of medium format offers different standarts of middle format sensors. Forget about film time.
By the way, it's the FIRST in the world MF camera with video mode.
iae aa eia: I think it was supposed to be already mirroless, with a nice EVF, and its sensor 56 x 41.5mm, as it was the 645 film frame area. 33 x 44mm looks like what the APS format is to the 135 full-frame, a cropped sensor to cut their investment some slack. Not a true medium-medium. Just medium.
44*33 is one of standart of MF sensor sizes.
I had made photos with 6*6 film for several years. :) Rolleiflex 2.8F.
Dear friend, 56*41.5 mm is a film size. Digital era has new digital medium format sensor sizes. 44*33 mm is the standart for digital MF cameras. The crop-factor is used just for calculating focal ranges. The result from old 11 MP FF camera was not worse than the scanned 56*41.5 mm scanned film. What are you talking about? 51 MP 44*33 mm CMOS sensor is way ahead of scanned film.
We know that the lenses are sharp. The design is really attractive and shocking. New FOVEON sensor. I see SIGMA is only one interesting company now - innovative design and NEW sensor. Not boring retro-look or classical stuff from another brands.
It's boring to death. Ugly LQ plastic with 18 MP.
Too much Photoshop. Unreal photos of unreal life.
EU keeps killing Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Latvia, Estonia.
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.
