disasterpiece: Correct me if I'm wrong, but $3000 buys you a full frame DSLR, a prime and a case.

Yeah - then go climbing rocks with that DSLR in a dive case!
Plastic bags and housings are a PITA when you are outdoors in the cold or wet.
Heck the film Nikonos cameras managed to work without housings over 50 years ago - sealing technology should be far better now!

justmeMN: Mirrorless cameras are just *so* last year. :-)

So Dino-SLRs must be so last ice age ?

Pushing the boundary for size and weight ....no thanks

If it does as claimed this will be good for outdoors use where the rain, saltwater and dust get on normal filters and end up a smeary mess a lot of the time when you try to clean up.

Interesting to see the positive enthusiasm for more size and weight as an advantage over mirrorless ...reminds me of how dinosaurs (dino-slrs) failed while pesty little mammals took over every niche they occupied. But hey if you want to persist with a viewing system that only existed because of film, your welcome to the size and weight penalty - which says nothing at all about about supposed better image quality.
I think between Ricoh & Pentax they could have done something unique in mirrorless, maybe in a few years 😣

Enginel: I'm a little afraid at this pace Pentax wouldn't finish the camera until after 2017. Maybe in January they will put pentaprism and eyepiece in mockup xD

And by then the rest of the market will have gone mirrorless ...😏

About time these aerial vermin were controlled. Too many instances of abuse of other peoples privacy as well as danger posed by stupid or careless operators.

Not exactly compact and rather reminds me of a Sigma prime ...

Didnt place for mirrorless at all I presume- nice to win in the dino-SLR category, I suppose. :))

Thanks for the compliment re Patagonia. They certainly use some stunning images. However if they looked close enough on the full size image they might spot the angler is wearing Simms brand waders .. :)

So has the pixel pitch actually increased with all this extra room thanks to the stacking- any info?

So no increased MP from sensor shift?

In reply to:

dave: In the age of cheap full frame cameras, the quarter sized sensor will always hold Olympus back. All of the bells an whistles can't makeup for the small sensor.

Yup Dave - and just because it has a FF sensor doesn't make it a better camera! See D610 oily sensors, D800 AF faults, Sony A7 slow AF, poor lens selection and basically got to buy a Zeiss Otus at a huge price to get decent image quality - and it wont balance with the small body. Hey it's FF, so it *must* be better - LOL!

On article Nikon 1 J5: What you need to know (503 comments in total)

This is what the J1 should have been (or even the V1) - a straightforward design instead of the offbeat offerings on most so far with odd control positions or even controls missing and buried in menus. Looks small enough, and cheap enough, to replace my Canon G12 for a compact walkabout camera.
