jimrpdx: DPR streak is safe, you simply cannot wrote a Pentax note without a barb. It's insulting to the brand and to readers. No Canon articles about the M-series features not implemented in later announcements, no Olympus reports that note how you cannot tell them apart from six feet away. Pentax put LEDs on one camera that could flash in specific instances, and could be turned off.. yet the stigma will outlive the current writers and no doubt will come up again in 2045. Absurdity reigns.

Jimrpdx :
Yo are absolutely right, this is how you are making a brand's reputation, with constant taunt & deconsideration.

panpen: Only a week ago I got a Full frame Sony A7 from B&H for $1298 minus $255 rebate, for a total of $1033. I'd rather have FF sensor than IBIS

Great, you have a camera than can't make proper raw files...
What's the point to have such good sensor if it's crippled by Sony's very strange decision :

Pentax should announce for CP+ the same tech, but with a different process.
The 36pmxl futur FF will have it, and all futur bodies.

Akpinxit: nicely constructed model , but with same IQ as Canon 7D it no match for a6000

"...In most photo-magazines and photo-sites the E-M10 already beat the A6000 overall..."
You should consider to stop using drugs.
(i'm not a Sony user, but saying than the 16MPxl EM1 sensor beat the A6000 24mlxl aps-c exmor, please...

Mariusz lmrl: Unfortunately — years too late… :(

Only way to distinguish on the mature market is to add really valuable unique features.

I’d like to see other sensor’s formats than boring 3:2 very much — 4:3 or especially „human natural” 5:4… Or, even better, to implement multiratio sensor on FF image circle! From 3:2, through 4:3, 5:4 to 1:1 FF physical format!

And there is ready slogan for _E_V_E_R_Y_ FF format more „square” than 3:2 — „Bigger than FF!” (3:2) (even if not much).

Na seriously, the A7 weather sealing doesn't look very sophisticated..

...and You have Ziess lenses, both older A-mount using adapter and newer E-mount...
And a crippled raw file format...

So no, thank you.

disasterpiece: Now if they catch up with their full frame lenses lineup...

Most of their DA primes (APs-c) are already FF compatible.
http://ricehigh.blogspot.com/2009/10/compatibility-of-da-lenses-on-full.html
But yeah, they lack of zoom, they've annouced from 70 to 450, but what about standard range ?

miles green: Yessss, finally!!!!!!!!!!

As a bonus, it looks compact, with a huge pentaprism and will obviously have SR in body. This is great.

It does look like the 67 with AE prism!

I hope foe S.R. too, but why obviously ?

Sony have crippled their Ax bodies with a stupid lossy raw compression... well done Sony !
http://blog.mingthein.com/2015/01/19/review-sony-a7-mark-ii

Ming thein :
"I am still not happy with the crippling 11+7 bit raw compression: you can still run into posterization fairly easily in highlights and shadows, especially if adjusting color balance under mixed lighting. Watch carefully for clipping, too – it doesn’t roll off nicely in the highlights like the D810. ISO for ISO, lens for lens, the D750 delivers a better quality file – with about 1-1.5 additional stops of usable (i.e. clean, manipulable in postprocessing without artifacts) dynamic range"

http://diglloyd.com/blog/2014/20140212_2-SonyA7-RawDigger-posterization.html

Having such good sensor in a camera with can't handle all color informations because of file compression, this is great, this is sony.

Ergo607: This is typical: one camera who is almost one year old gets a major update with significant improvement and a lot of news features and three camera's that are end of life get a firmware update too (name one manufacturer that has done the same in the past!) and all people do is moan...

Pentax, with diffraction correction added to the K3.

In reply to:

Paul Guba: Comparing two cameras with similar sensors is like comparing two cars with V8 engines. The 645Z and the Alpa are two completely different machines. I won't justify the huge price difference but at the same time you can't compare the two as tools. Phase also has better software and years of experience getting the best data from a sensor. There both great cameras but the similarity ends at MP.

I'm a hasselblad (553 ELX with 80mm t* Zeiss lens) and Pentax user, and seriously, Pentax lenses are at least as good as their Zeiss counterparts.
And they are cheaper, weather sealed, sometimes stabilized and with AF, so please, stop that bs about Pebtax lenses.
