I don't think it's doom. He was pretty specific when discussing the shortcomings of A-mount lenses on E-mount cameras with adaptors. He said because they are aware of those shortcomings, they will still be developing A-mount cameras. Or did I mis-hear him?
Chris JC: I love everything I've read here except for one thing: without a headphone jack the camera is useless to me for video recording as we always need to mic a presenter or interviewee, therefore we absolutely must be able to monitor the quality of the incoming audio signal. It's a shame too as a certain warehouse box store has a great price on these now.
Costco has it in VA for 1200 or so with 2 lenses, bag and card.
Slightly updated from a submitted photo last week. First had no processing at all.
Some great pictures, I think. Interesting perspective and emotion.
At first I thought what a messed up shot this was...then I saw the ISO setting. yikes!
KZMike: So why does Pentax continue to NOT have any but fixed LCDs on the back side of their SLRs. . . would have purchased a Pentax years ago, but have waited for something to change. Its time for a SLR and I leaning to Sony. . . come on Pentax
I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure it is related to the weather-proofing of the body. Having a screen that articulates adds too many places that water/dust, etc can enter. Other weather rated cams, like the Sony A77, have articulating screens but are not rated for as severe weather as the Pentax. It's sort of like a water "resistant" watch as opposed to a "water proof" watch.
Just my opinion
