On article Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift Resolution: Updated Field Test (209 comments in total)
In reply to:

Petroglyph: Thank you for the updated article, DPR. Silkypix seems to be stable in the Win10.1 partition. Now pixel shift PEF will follow the same work flow as Foveon. DCU -> Tiff -> PP software of choice.

I confirm. I'm sorry for the OSX users, but on Widows 10 the bundled SW works just fine. It looks horrible and it is not the most comfortable RAW converter out there, but for the few occasions where I feel like I need to shoot a 200MB RAW file, it will certainly do.

D1N0: WTF, no gold?

Highly recommended was the old rating system equivalent of todays "gold" status. I remember the rants concerning the "just" reservation

Tobamory: great alternative to a D810 and lots cheaper...GAS attack incoming

I guess we can expect some cheaper FF with less knobs and simple construction but faster CPU in some 2 years horizon. That is how Pentax usually works.

Jarda_Houdek: Not good enough to replace my Lumia 1020 but nice try.

I'm not comparing Leica and Zeiss companies, just sharing my personal impression on lens clarity. But I should probably compare RAW files, not relying on the comparison tool here on dpreview.
The variable aperture is indeed a great advantage, I missed that.
Regarding the app support, that's not really a problem anymore. I have close to 300 apps installed on Lumia and never had a problem finding suitable app or working alternative.

while the sensor is better than the one on the Lumia (of course, it is larger). I'm not convinced the lens Panasonic used is up to par with Zeiss used by the Lumia. But my biggest problem with the Panasonic would be that I'd lose the advantage of Windows Phone.

Jarda_Houdek: Oh come on dpreview, why the comparison with Lumia 1020 is not available? That's the closest product on the market.
BTW the Panasonic looks nice, I'd really consider it if it had WP instead of Android.

Great, thank you very much. The Panasonic apparently has some advantages, but nothing that would make me leave the Lumia any time soon.

David McLean: Vote now for a new Nokia 1030 on Android complete with 41MP PureView camera!

Nearly eighteen months after release and the Nokia 1020 is still the best smartphone camera available. Its sales were always going to be limited with it being based on Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system. Delivering an updated version on Android would be a certain success and there is a HUGE hole in the market.

Vote now (on the link below) and tell Microsoft what we really want for Christmas!

Down with android, WP is way better.

Jarda_Houdek: Interesting, finally some competition for Lumia 1020.
Still, Lumia beats Lumix:
Lumia may have a smaller sensor, but with stabilization and brighter lens. Also Lumia supports RAW, which is not yet supported in Android. And Lumia has Xenon flash. Can't see how this devide could win against Lumia.

Yes, bigger pixels will help a bit. But corner performance is not a problem IRL. There is a slight blur in the very extreme corner, but that area is out of focus or cropped away in 99% of my pictures. The photo part of Lumia 1020 would benefit most from variable aperture. Nokias used to have this in the past. With 1/1.5 sensor size and f2.2 lens sometimes the DOF is too shallow.

DXOmark is full of bulls**t. Basically that company is financially closely related to Sony so they are biased in methodology. Doesn't reflect real life experience. and easy access to manual controls on a touchscreen? Any mobile phone has that.

With wide angle lens on Lumia 1020 the focus speed concerns me the least. It is very snappy for anything you would want to shoot with this lens.
I found no direct comparison between Lumia nad anything with 1" sony image sensor, but I'm sure it will beat Lumia at least in dynamic range. I do not plan to replace the Lumia anytime soon, but if maybe one day if either Android gets better or Panasonic replaces this with a Windows Phone (and adds OIS and flash), I might consider it.
