If I rely solely on my latest experiments with the K-3, a formidable "APS-C" DSLR in my opinion (if not the ultimate!), this can only bode well for all Pentaxians or other open-minded photographers and enthusiasts.
I love the idea of some 'M' diversity! My GXR doesn't...
Interesting, dare I say "daring": having followed the Leica digital rangefinder development saga closely, I have no doubt about the many challenges facing this Konost team. Now, would this be enough to entice Cosina to resurrect any kind of Zeiss Ikon 'D' project!?
My daughter wants that bird.. Please.
The E-1 still impresses! Nice catch.
Ricoh's quite smart: the whole Pentax legacy needed to build itself a substantial (D) FA(*) zoom lineup in order to move on towards that imminent FF launch, as well as to dust its somewhat aging SMC DA(*) wide-to-normal zoom offering. With no sweat nor threat, things are starting to take shape in a very promising manner for both APS-C and FF camps of the same tenacious K-mount!
Victor12, This area looks familiar... Well captured!
That man, speaking on behalf of.., has a task to fulfill. That, I know. My wishes? Choice, as in variety. Samsung cams operate like a song, I agree! That man is very capable, also. Obviously. Speaking on behalf. At DPReview. To every single one.
That man is very much wishing for DSLRs to vanish entirely from the face of Earth, obviously not having anything to sell in that camp...
As if sensor sizes were the only IQ catalysts..!
Wow, amazing beasts! But what are they???
The title is quite sarcastic: "Not Dead Yet"!? Could say that to Nikon and Canon first... Miss my A700, would buy another one anytime if found in store brand new!
(Speaking from experience, from Alpha line upward...) Sony's manufacturing reliability has been abysmally bad in photo gear, whereas its technological accomplishments have been rather impressive on all fronts. I guess that the whole point of this joint venture Hasselblad-Sony was to bring promising products much closer to perfection!
plainwhite: I might have been tempted to purchase the Typ 113 if it had a built in VF and full manual control of the ISO and aperture setting at f/1.7. But alas, there are to many compromises for $3k in my opinion.
Just because a person has money, doesn't mean he shouldn't also have some common sense.
Opt for Type 109...
I enjoyed (and trusted) this farmed-out review format, DPReview; please, keep it that way!
But will it perform better than the rest of the X family with M-Mount lenses?
Let the most female win!
My guess: it will be snow white, waterproof plastic, with a huge black pirate Canon flag on it!
