ZAnton: pentax makes great cameras, they need to make good lenses. At the moment they have only a few. Second, I would still make optical IS on some lenses, as it is way better than in-body IS.
Maybe they need to add optical IS on some of their tele lenses but not to the wide angle ones.My experience is that with wide angle lenses in-body IS worked way better than optical IS. On the other hand the latter can help af in low light, that's true.For wide angle pick a Sigma or Tamron on Pentax and you're done. ;)
role_of_72: My first thought is that this Nikon could have been a perfect camera in the Canon Pro1 era!But today I'm not sure. It depends on the use of the individual.I don't need shallow dof that much but print up to a3 size so it's certainly not for me.Anyway I suppose the future Canon 'pro' M model will have similar ergonomics. Now that would be a hit! :)
Sure I can print up to that size but I won't be satisfied with the result. :) And yeah, I checked the official samples. Maybe I could do something with them up to iso200 but anything above is a bit of a compromise. As I've said it depends on the individual and this was only from the iq point of view.All in all I know my needs exactly and this time I'm not the target but it can be really good for other hobbists.

A great shot with an interesting angle and composition! Congrats!
I'm not sure if this is called photography because photographic tools were used only for getting the raw material to his work but anyway I like it.
Works like this need much more imagination than most of us have and this cannot be compensated with million dollar gear. Thanks for the video it was really refreshing!
role_of_72: The APS-C - 43 gap is now closed. And everyone lives happily ever after :)Good job, Oly!
As I know DPR studio samples were seldom about depth of field comparison so obviously I was referring to iso performace.
About depth of field: DOF advantage (large vs. shallow) depends mainly on the purpose of your photography so it is quite relative.

A long-awaited addition. Thank you and keep up the good work!
It certainly will be a very good camera but for me the design is a bit Canon-ish. This isn't a problem just found it interesting. :) It started with the D5100 anyway.
role_of_72: This is brutal! I can't see any weak points (obviously it's not for high MP studio work).Congrats Canon!
Oh, you're right, from the specs of course. :)

twanton: Woodn't it be nice if we were richer :-)
LOL! Yeah, it wood. :D
For me the design looks like Nikon was in a hurry and they released a prototype/development phase camera. This (body) design simply cannot be a finished one..
photonius: read the specs:suggested retail for 77mm: 55,000 yen, currently 700$, 500 Euro, ugh...
Price is one thing but quality is an other.. I have a ND filter from that 'Green L' brand from ebay and to tell the truth it is awful.
I don't have huge expectations but that filter ruins the sharpness and colors as well. It has a strong reddish effect on my images. We ended with a refund.
I don't know this version but it has twice as many glass elements than my ordinary ND filter so I'm afraid quality isn't that great. :)
role_of_72: This 'effect' is funny. :)
The other funny thing is if this was discovered in some other product it'd be a serious engineering mistake. But since it is in the iPhone this is fun and a killer feature.:D Apple has always been good in marketing.
Yes, I know about the effect in cameras but there are differences between the two cases we talked about:
- the article is about _video_ recording, you mentiones _still_images_
- the effect is caused by the reading of data out of the CMOS _sensor_, the leicas (and other cameras) has it because of the _shutter_.
These two things make them really different from each other.And I said that it is _fun_ and would like to add that this is _nothing_serious_ since it is in a mobile phone not in a professional camera (I don't know much about them anyway..).
This 'effect' is funny. :)
fransams: What is the function of the 4-3-2-1-0 dial on the front? Is it a manual self-timer?
"The Quick Dial on the front of the camera provides quick access to one of four special features that might otherwise be lost in the menu system somewhere.
It also adds to the camera's retro look, of course."
role_of_72: I don't understand why it hurts so many people.
You don't like the fact that now you have one more possibility besides dslr milc and compact cameras?Pentax was all about possibilities and good alternatives (instead of C or N) for quite a few years now. Just think of Pentax dslr system and its compatibility! And now they have something again that can be useful for some. Anyway: where else can you get a fisheye lens for less than $150? Let me guess: nowhere (or you steal one :D)
OK, it's overpriced but it can change (with cheaper future models, too).Worry about IQ? There will be an other, APS-C sized Pentax milc system (maybe with K)
Did you lose something with this? No.. but you have one more way to go now.You should thank it to Pentax instead of the stupid "epic fail" bullsh!t.
Know what? Let's go out and shoot! ;)
Alright, didn't know that. But..The thing is that you attach a $130 converter (not lens) to a $250 lens is not a sub $150 solution for me anymore. :)(Nothing to say about the size.)
I just say that probably it isn't that dead-born child as some may think. It will turn out anyway.
I don't understand why it hurts so many people.
