Thre is a error in your specs :
Viewfinder type Optical (pentamirror)
It's a prism, not a pentamirror.

Valeriu 64: Congratulation Ricoh, and team Ricoh - Pentax for your succes.
Pentax K-3 is the best APS-C DSRL at this moment .

God , bless you

Valeriu

Accorded to DPR, the Nikon D7100 is better.

Even if :
It have a ridiculous RAW buffer, and a 1/4 lower burst mode.
No sensor stab, A lower white balance system, a lower light metering system, a smaller vierwfinder, USB2 against USB3, a body with plastic parts (full magnesium for the K3, polycarbonate + magnesium for the D7100),

But hey, the Nikon have plenty of scene presets, a 1/250s flash sync and a 51Af points, and a Nikon logo in front. I guess it makes the difference :)

The K3 is pretty noisy against the D7100 ?

You should check your eyes.
(But OK for the XT1, it have great noise performances)

And can you focus in dim light with a D7100 or a XT1 ?
With a K3, you can.

peevee1: Wait... do I understand that correctly that with only 2.5/5 fps and no OSPDAF and no in-camera 4k Sony absolutely squandered its chance to make an incredible sports camera out of this sensor? With pixel size 5 times bigger than on a6000, the OSPDAF would be just beyond amazing! And with in-camera 4k, you could have just shot high-shutter-speed video instead of series of still shots, even if at "only" 15-20 fps when using the whole sensor (instead of 16:9 crop).
No global shutter, no depth-sensing CDAF (like on GH4), no UHS-II or UHS-I Class 3, nothing special...
As it is, it is a $999 camera, just 1/3 resolution a7R. Sony misses the mark by coupe of inches - again.

"Lol :-) Yea let us all ignore how small the GH4 sensor is.."

small sensor or not, the Panasonic video quality trumps the other cameras around here.

In reply to:

ImageSource Creative: Did Sony leave the optical low-pass filter off the A7s as they did on the A7r? ...sure hope so!

I don't think so. A 12MXpl sensor is more prone to moiré than a 36mpxl.

completelyrandomstuff: Regarding iso noise:

Nikon D7100 Exif: Iso 25600, Shutter: 1/3200, F-stop: 5.6
Pentax K-3 Exif: Iso 25600, Shutter: 1/5000, F-stop: 5.6
Canon 70D: Exif: Iso 25600, Shutter: 1/3200, F-stop: 5.6
Olympus E-m1: Iso 25600, Shutter: 1/5000, F-stop: 5.6

Come on Dpreview, that's not a standardized comparison... You put side-by-side two different exposures and suggest they are comparable.

No wonder a couple of the cameras look worse if you expose their shots with 2/3rds of the light!

I don't get it. According to your reviews, Both d7100 & 70d have a 1/8000' shutter speed...

completelyrandomstuff: Here's an opinion to ponder regarding pentax glass:

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/columns/sm-02-05-02.shtml

And here's a consensus:
http://www.pixel-peeper.com/lenses/

There is a lot of backlash on the pentax lenses. I would say it's a pointless argument. People who buy those lenses have a great time with them, enjoy their hobby (or their job) and manage to take good photos.

What is more important, whether the F-stop is F2.4 instead of F1.8, or whether people are enjoying their photography?

It's curious, why so many Pentax lenses in the Pixel Peeper lenses rank ?
I mean, it's a tsunami of Pentax lenses !

bluevellet: Many Pentaxians have been ruining other camera reviews with their inane whining about the missing K3 review. Well, they now have their purchase validation (sort of), it's only fair to ruin their precious K3 review in return.

"DPReview, why the K3 review when the Nikon D4 has never been properly reviewed? Nikon even had time to release the D4s in the meantime. Insane."

"One of the sharpest lenses ever and DPR is content with just a preview. Get that Zuiko 75mm review out already!"

Come on folks, channel your inner Pentaxian and whine like there's no tomorrow.

Bluevellet :
Cool story bro'.

Fenderguy2011: This seems really nice 24 megapixel.. Weather proofed.. Unfortunate that my dad years ago let me know that we are a Nikon family.. But mom had A Brownie, growing up us kids had several Instamatic cameras (126 cartridge) I think. Had me a StarmighII Kodak (127 roll film no longer made for Kodak) When Brown's Camera used to still be around (1970's - 80's) I fell in love with photography. Took a good long look at the K1000 and almost bought it. Father sort of pushed me into a Nikon product and picked up a used Nikkormat FT2. Looked at the K1000 model at the store and noticed it only had a cloth shutter curtain. Friend of mine years later bought three used K1000's and I looked over the camera, ended up that they had switched at some point to a metal curtain system. If I could fit all of my Nikkor lenses to this camera I would buy it.. Sort of looking at the D800 now as an upgrade. 36.6 Megapixels. Full HD video built in.. better low lighting control.

"...Sort of looking at the D800 now as an upgrade. 36.6 Megapixels. Full HD video built in.. better low lighting control...."

Better low light control ? I'm not sure.
At least you can focus in low-light (-3Ev) with a Pentax K3, something a Nikon D800 can't do...
3 cameras only can focus with such dim light, CAnon 6D, Pentax K3 & K5II.

In reply to:

Jogger: Nice camera, but, sensor is still too small.

"...I think it is AMAZING that we have a smaller sensor that gives more dynamic range than the fantastic APS-C sensor in the Nikon D5300...."
SEriously ?
Take a tour at DXO, for dynamic range, the d5300 show 13.9Ev, against 12.3 dor the OM10.
I mean, Oly's OMD are excellent cameras, but please, don't even try to say than a smaller sensor with equal technology have better results than a bigger one...

I'm not very impressed with the XT1's sensor performances :
http://uppix.net/Ir2rfL.jpg
There is less noise, but details are blurred, the Fuji is the only camera where you can't read the paint tube's label.
and what append to red & purple tones ?

Apewithacamera: Ok how do they cut these in half?

They put the camera/lens in water (in water, you can cut glass without breaking it), and use a diamond cutting wheel.
