Wow! "increased buffer capacity that now allows the camera to shoot 18 consecutive RAW 14-bit lossless compressed images, 27 12-bit compressed shots or 100 JPEG frames." What does this mean if you shoot RAW + JPEG?
Currently my D7100 manages to rattle 6 frames before pausing which can last what seems a lifetime yet my K-3 can manage much more than that and restart capturing when space has been liberated. Such a frustrating issue on what is otherwise a fine camera. So, I won't be rushing out to get one, although the K-3 Prestige is still tempting
Gesture: Great, The D5XXX is Nikon's best value DSLR in my opinion.
D7100 comes with a free grip in the UK - all for £749
Think I'll stick with what I've got, scene and idiot modes on a £2000 camera?
Heie2: And Pentax remains the only one with an 18-135 that is weather sealed. Try to keep up canon.
and unlike Canon you can take the Pentax outside in the rain...no point having a general purpose lens if it stops once it starts raining....optically the Pentax isn't so bad, Canon QC sucks too...early adopters beware
topstuff: Very good news !
This clearly indicates two things:
1, Ricoh have ambitions for the brand and plan to bring out more cameras.
2, While the K-01 is funky, strange and pretty left-field, and Pentax are to be praised for daring to be different, they also have new DSLR's in the pipeline.
This has made my day !
I won't buy the new 50, as my F50 1.7 sits on my K20D and the FA50 1.4 is on the K-5 ;-)
I hope Pentax do deliver on their longer lenses this time - they are seriously overdue, and I would rather buy pentax than independant. But consider this, no one else (ie major camera makers) offers an affordable lens over 300mm nowadays....
Ceesprof: I one find a marriage so expensive, one can decide not to marry.
I had one couple starting divorcing proceedings once I had put in a reprint order - nothing to do with the pics thought
Having done weddings, I feel the responder hasn't taken full advantage and ripped the bride to pieces..
As for the bride - I feel for the groom, what a life he has ahead of him. She dispalys all of the hallmarks of an 'armchair expert' based on the acquisition of a cheap DSLR and then wondering why a $3000 wedding costs what it does when using a $500 camera will suffice. But when she starts baulking at the price having paid out $15k already, I begin to wonder what value she puts in the oath and sanctity of marriage - she knows the price of everything BUT THE VALUE OF NOTHING
