brownie314: I don't know about Canons bodies and sensors, but I love those new small primes. They look great. Nikon should wake up and see what Canon is doing here.

The pentax DA40 was tested by Photozone, it scores 4/5 on imge quality...

http://www.photozone.de/pentax/630-pentax40f28?start=1
IT scores better than the Canon 40mm pancake...
http://www.photozone.de/canon-eos/772-canon_40_28_apsc?start=1

So, aren't you tired to say constant BS ?
B.T.W, the Pentax is full frame compatible, what about the Canon one ?

How to make a best seller camera in 8 lessons :

Use a small and dull viewfinder.
A plastic body.
A sensor who lack behind competition in almost every aspect...
Forget about internal AF adust, even if the camera is prone to it.
Use the famous Canon ergonomy aka "who need a second control dial ?" with a stupid thumb wheel placed too low.
Implant Auto-iso without exposure compensation, i mean, who need that ?
USB2 transfert for24mpxl, in 2015 : a must-have.

(...)but then I look at their lens prices....the 40mm 2.8 DA from Pentax is $550...the canon is $200....auch(...)

550$ for a DA 40 ?
It cost 147$ on Amazon U.S. for a DA40 XS :

Less expensive than the canon one...

In reply to:

T3: The size of the viewfinder is disappointing. It's even smaller than the poor viewfinder in the SL1. Canon basically upgraded the features of the T6 to be more of a mid-level camera, but then downgraded the viewfinder to below that of an entry-level camera. Canon giveth and taketh away!

And meantime, any Pentax DSLR offers a 100% pentaprism VF..
But hey, as far as there is no canikon logo on it, who cares ?

Snapper2013: Another little Canon gem that'll sell like hotcakes!!!

Well, i guess we don't share the same definition about what a "gem" is.
Blurry images, DR still in 2006, no Af adjustments, no exposure compensation in auto Iso mode, dull and small pentamirror viewfinder...
But yeah, it will be sold by entire wagons, by people who just want a Canon logo in front of their camera.
A boring camera, a Canon.

Mssimo: for the price, I would just get the Fuji T10, Pani G7 or the awesome Oly OM5 MK2. Electronic viewfinders are now better than most small penta mirror style optical VF.

So many nice cameras on the market, canon needs to re-invent the rebel line of cameras to keep up. One thing is for sure, they cant keep this basic design and sensor around for another 6 years.

"Pentax can manage a decent 100% pentaprism on even their cheapest DSLR. Why can't Canon do the same with any body cheaper than the 7D II? I can't answer than question."

I can :)
It was explained in "Chasseur d'Images" photo magazine.

Pentax take advantage of the SR system to calibrate the sensor alignement with the VF/AF module, when Canikon need expensive human ressources to do that operation.
So, it doesn't cost much money to Pentax to have a 100% pentaprism in their bodies.

In reply to:

Mike FL: So, K-3.2 uses same sensor as old K3. Well let's see how dated K3 sensor vs Fiji's old/lowest-end Fuji X-A1:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=pentax_k3&attr13_1=fujifilm_xa1&attr13_2=fujifilm_xt1&attr13_3=fujifilm_xe2&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=12800&attr16_1=12800&attr16_2=12800&attr16_3=12800&normalization=print&widget=75&x=0.07533055257188802&y=0.512815730723348

Not good.

Who gives a clue about Jpgs ?
If you want to compare, why not the K50 which have the same sensor & resolution than the Fuji, and it's a different story :

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=pentax_k3&attr13_1=fujifilm_xa1&attr13_2=pentax_k50&attr13_3=fujifilm_xe2&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=12800&attr16_1=6400&attr16_2=6400&attr16_3=6400&normalization=print&widget=75&x=0.07533055257188802&y=0.512815730723348

AND, the K50 is 12bits only, the K5IIs with a 14bits output will give better results.

In fact, you can compare any 16 Vs 24 Mpxl camera, you'll have the same results you show, it's clueless.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1235 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: Your choices:
This camera or:
The latest Nikon DSLR with whatever QC problem it had this time.
The latest Canon with sensor tech from 5 years ago.
The latest Pentax, the K3 is a good one, but limited lens group.
The latest Olympus, you need to like m4/3.
The latest Fuji, mushy as the images are due to excessive noise reduction.
The latest Panasonic, if video is your main goal.
The latest Sigma, well, Foveon...
The Sony DSLRs, hybrids, mirror-less. Good choices

"The latest Pentax, the K3 is a good one, but limited lens group."
the Pentax APS-c dedicated lenses line-up is bigger than Canikon, sony, Samsung...

"I never said it was identical,,, just that they got the tech from Olympus,, which they did. Fin."
There is no proof about that.

Mateus1: Anybody knows its AF sensitivity? Is it poor 0EV or goes to -3EV or -4EV like Panasonic cams? Olympus hides this information, do not know why - maybe it's only 0EV?

Yep, -2EV :

What is AF EV sensitivity? Hope not poor 0EV.

Ok, now i've found the info :
http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/olympus_om_d_e_m5_mark_ii_review/
"he system managed to focus down to -2EV (as long as there was something to focus on) even without the use of the focus assist lamp.".

"There is.
The AF EV is -3 (or -4)."
HAve you a source about that ? I try to verify your information, but i can't find nowhere than the AF sensitivity goes to -3EV.
At this time, only Canon 6D & 7Dmk2, Pentax 645Z, K5II, K3 & KS2, Panasonic GH4 & Sony A7S have that feature.

samhain: If Ricoh would re-hire Jun Hirakawa to design new Pentax FF lenses...
I could honestly see Pentax being a serious competitor to Canon/Nikon.

Imo- Dslr bodies come & go. But the lenses- that's what makes all the difference.
Innovation will move a brand up the food chain. Fast, unique, well made glass will keep em there.

In reply to:

GabrielZ: It seems to me now, that all those camera manufactures that incorporate in-body IS will be going the sensor shift way soon, as a way of adding value and improving the image quality/colour/sharpness of their cameras.

I'm a Pentax user, but i'm pretty sure than Canikon could implant that kind of tech if the market goes this way. No need for a heavy IS/SR system, only a slighty translation of the sensor (or the bayer filter) is necessery to have a gain on resolution (à la Hasselblad) or color depht..
