Tom Schum: If this camera is going to have a Sony sensor, is there any chance it will be the sony FF BSI as found now in the A7RII?
Pentax might be bringing a Sony sensor (of any size) to the market in this camera but hopefully they will bring it in a more photographer-friendly minimum-fiddle durable body. They can sell a lot of Sony sensors this way so why not sell it with the best available sensor at the moment?

As someone who shoots a lot of low ISO landscape, I'd really prefer the ISO 64-native D810 sensor over the 42MP A7RII sensor which has a little less DR.

rhlpetrus: Does DPR know if sensor has AA filter on it?

From what I have read, it does not.

Wesley Byrne: What does the lever above the viewfinder do? Toggle 1.3x viewfinder zoom?

Viewfinder shutter for long exposure/night shooting. Keeps stray light from getting in through the viewfinder.

XGA LCD, brand-new sensor with a huge ISO range... can't wait to try this one in person.

Sergiusbr: Who needs a DSLR? non-Sony users?

Fast lenses with Pentax? Barking up the wrong tree, I'm afraid.

Oh dear... pony up for the Sony, then!

JKP: Full frame EOS 6D costs less than $1100 in some places. I would pick it up before any APC-C cameras in the same price range.

Deal-a-day websites are your friends!

C'mon, K-mount. Us Pentaxians are counting on you, Sigma, to produce the lenses Ricoh won't!

Michael Engelen: I am not into Pentax for a long time but follow their developments with interest. This new camera has some nice ideas included.
But what I really don't understand in times of cheap memory cards is the usefulness of the RAW-button (to me it seems to be just as useful as the print-button in the Canon world). Can anyone enlighten me? Is it maybe customizable so that I can put a more useful function on it?

I have mine set to toggle the electronic level on and off.

tedolf: I don't understand this camera. It is larger and heavier than an E-pl7 with the Panny 20mm f/1.7 lens. The sensor isn't as good and it doesn't cost much less.

What is the point?

Ergonomics and control schemes matter more to some people than outright IQ.

Simon97: Hopefully DPR will eventually put up some studio shots with it. I have wondered how this sensor compares to the Sony 16 and 24mp sensors.

To say there is no difference between a 14 stop DR camera and a 12 stop DR camera is... well, nonsensical.

Do you shoot RAW?

I mean, every photographer has different needs when looking for a camera. For some, landscape photographers in particular, having a sensor that can pull out a lot of clean shadow detail is very important. DxO is one way to determine which cameras are best at this. How is that a bad thing?

Usually those who care about dynamic range and noise performance... most serious photographers.

Assuming it's the same 20MP sensor as the K-S1, a little worse, according to DxO.

In reply to:

steelski: So, no flash popup button, and one extra button by the left side near the AF mode select.
Any ideas as to the function?

My guess/hope is WiFi. We'll see.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 12, 2015 at 14:57 UTC

I hope one of those buttons is for WiFi...

Sannaborjeson: That's good. 16/1.4 looks quite interesting as a potential allrounder.

And great for astrophotography!

Marty4650: Finally, Pentax snaps back to it's senses!

This will be a very desirable DSLR at a very good price. And nothing that an adult would be ashamed to be seen with!

And they finally ditched the screw drive kit lens!

In reply to:

Digital Imaging Technician: The concept model looks like a simple 3D print (look at the striped pattern in the body). Is that all they're going to show?

I see that too. I hope to see more refinement in the final design... the K-5 series and K-3 are both what I call "beautifully purposeful" designs. I hope this new body follows that trend.
