Couscousdelight: I don't care how good that lens will be, i'll never buy a sigma lens again...
They refuse to take in charge my U.G.A. lens which is under warranty, they claim than i've chocked that lens.
Problem is, i've never shocked it, and that piece of crap has broke when it was mount on my DSLR : the rear optical block from the lens detach itself and falls on my reflex's mirror.
go to hell sigma.

(...)If that lens had a production defect so abd "the end just fell off on its own", it would have done so looong before you ever got your hands on the lens. In shipping and transport.
It just happening on its own sounds like a typical bull excuse story.(...)
This is just great !

Hello Lt Colombo,
So, you're building your own little theories about what really should append, (hey of course, a lens can't broke during camera operation), and claim in public than i'm a liar.

thank you :)

white shadow: Finally, Ricoh is moving in the right direction making a full frame camera. Making a high quality full frame 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is a good indication they are serious. Let's hope they won't take too long to make it happen.

Ricoh has a tradition of making very photographer-centric cameras like the Ricoh GR. Let's hope this new entry would give Canikon a run for their money.

AlexisH :
That's the point of view of a occidental. They are new markets to engage for Pentax, China, Brazil, southwest Asia...
Just for China, there is potentialy more customers than US+Europe+ Japan + OZ/NZ !
B.T.W., Ricoh make profit with their camera division..., not like Panasonic of sony...

In reply to:

Petroglyph: The new lenses are built to cover slightly more than FF image circle to allow all the things Pentax does with sensor shift. Astute observation DPR. Let's see that would be IBIS, pitch/roll stabilization, astro-tracker, scene recomposition, AA simulator, sensor-shift high resolution (someday probably not this year).

I'm curious to know if Sony prepare their E-mount lenses for the body stabilization form the 17ii.
IF not, it could increase vignetting in specifical situations.

"Too late though. This was needed years ago.'
Why ? People will stop to make photography in 2016 ?
There are always new customers, but you need the product to seduce them.
That's what Ricoh is doing.

"Still waiting for a camera making better looking PHOTOS than the Fuji XT-1.

I'm tired to see that nonsense about Fuji image quality, a 24MPxl aps-c sensor have better results better, and a FF destroy it.

In reply to:

Don051348: Specs aside, I think Canon should can the "Rebel" brand name and just go with the 750/760 name globally. I equate the "Rebel" brand name with a cheaper, inferior, entry level product. 750D/760D IMO evokes a more upscale "professional" product. Just my opinion...

Both Rebel & Kiss are ridiculous names for cameras...

Those lenses are really huge (the 90mm macro in particular).

Wm Leddon Studios: I photograph Architectural Interiors & Exteriors, Fine Art Landscapes, and Environmental Portraits. I own a Canon 5D11 that does only an acceptable job for what I do. I passed on the 5D111 and will be passing on the new 5DS & 5DS R they do not address my needs.

There was an article posted by Nic Granleese's Blog headlined with the question is the Canon DDS R architectural photographers have been waiting for? Well not for me. I always find myself in precarious positions in order to get the prospective I want. One never photographs landscape or portrait compositions from a full standing position. Almost on every shoot I'm on, the camera is in a position where I can't see the LCD screen. The defiance to incorporate a fully articulating rear LCD screen on any professional camera is irresponsible.

Would love to see this camera mirrorless, converters made available for prime major brand lenses, a no AA filter option, w. Sony-Like dynamic range & low light performance AT MINIMUM.

"why not just buy a sony A7r then!?'"
Because they are crippled ? And a serious photographer don't want to deal with color posterization ?

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.

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...

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 ?
