azeg: They don´t want to repeat the pricing issue with the DP1. Very good decision, SIGMA.
I fell in love just a few weeks ago with my dp2 Quattro, but i will definitely go with the SD Quattro the day it releases in Germany ! Stunning picture quality with the versatility of a wide area of good to very good lenses.
For the rest i have my Lumix LX-100.

@ HowAboutNo: Err: no.

azeg@ Well, since you don't care: In your case: no.

coldcut: Wow, much less than I anticipated. I wonder how many cameras the early production runs will be? The agressive pricing indicates that Sigma is aiming at a larger market share, but its difficult to figure out the strategy with these guys.

Difficult?! How can it be difficult when it's that specifically competitive ?!

You mean the pricing issue introduced with the original SD1 ?! That was 6 (!) years ago, btw.

ogl: What about the price of APS-H version?

Will be released a few months later, towards the end of the year.

HBowman: Low price, yes, but MANY lenses won't work correctly on it especially tele lenses and Macro ... fail.

In reply to:

BJN: Seems reasonable that an app that removes video recording limits could potentially damage the camera via overheating.

LoL!

In reply to:

raindance: Purchase $2000 camera body, $1800 lens, shoot raw, process 24 megapixel files in LR, apply, compress and upload to social media. Makes sense right ?

In reply to:

FuhTeng: I have Lynda.com through my local library and the photography courses have been useful, and it's free to me, so I'll stick with that. There are so many of these types of courses out there, I'm sure having Canon's name on it will help, but how else to distinguish itself? Or is Canon branding enough, like Trump university?

Well, Trump university is about making America great again, whereas Canon is all about distracting your attention from Pentax et. al.

In reply to:

DualSystemGuy: So, the takeaway is that the 2-year old A6000 still has a better viewfinder, AF, and sensor? That about sums it up I guess haha.

@brendon1000 Sony's cheap kit lenses are a MESS, resolution wise. Nobody will ever turn out anything even remotely approaching 24 MP with those shards...

marc petzold: Pixelshift works wonders onto the K-1, seen this from other web previews way earlier, that feature also works nicely onto the K-3 II. Other reviews meant, the Quality with Pixelshift is very close to MF (Medium Format). Together with all the other new Features, like Body-illuminating LEDs, IBIS, AstroTracer, and Pixelshift - the K-1 seems to be the best bang for the buck - and a much better value (and better looking body) than the D810 Nikon with the same Sensor. Videos only revealed (The Camera Store & other reviews) as being said before the very expensive 24-70/2.8 Pentax SMC Lens is just a re-badged Tamron 24-70/2.8, with HD Coatings, but it seems to have 98-99% the same IQ - and costs at least in germany almost twice than the Tamron.

Wie geil.

It certainly does match the resolving power measured by line resolution over the COMPARATIVE image size.

Well then it would be interesting to know whether one could convert the lens mount of a Tamron 24-70/2.8 to Pentax K-mount...
Sie benutzen wohl eine automatische Übersetzung? Liest sich stellenweise etwas holprig. Am besten vor der Veröffentlichung nochmal durchlesen (ist gut gemeint!).

The DP1 Merrill is a bad choice, since it's optical performance is lower than that of the DP3 Merrill, which unfortunately isn't included in the comparison tool. I have a DP3 Merrill. If anything the K-1 in pixel shift mode matches it, whereas the DP3 Merrill accomplishes this resolution with one single shot, albeit at or near base ISO (ISO 100-200).

solarsky: The Nokia 808 PureView with its 41.48 MP sensor already captured full 8K stills in 16:9, and that was using components developed between 2008 and 2011... These companies have a LOT to catch up on...

I used to own a 808, too, but some rotten thieves stole it from me, in Bali of all tourism gulags...
