samhain: I really hope Pentax has more up their sleeve than these two Cameras. You can get a new k-5 for $600 & k-5II for $800, and even less for used. These models don't really make any sense to me. You know what we want Pentax. Lower shelf models ain't it.
you're comparing street prices of former models with official prices of just announced new models; .. does that make any sense ?
here are two questions :1) how long will it take to DP to issue reviews of both camera ?2) will they be outsourced or home made reviews ?
arpikusz: Is it just me, or are the K-30 the K-50 and the K-500 essentially the same camera? :-/
have a look of DP comparison ..http://www.dpreview.com/articles/7885360476/first-impressions-of-the-pentax-k50-and-k500
what a beautiful comp and shot !..
superb shot !.. congrats for the 1st place
HubertChen: Asking the dpReview community to be nice:
I was very sad that for a long time I have not really seen a dpreview staff participate in discussions in comments. Now one reviewer did. And what happened to him?
* He is greeted with cynicism* It is suggested he is part of a conspiracy against Pentax* Bad intentions are suggested in many occasions
No surprise dpReview staff was not really present in comments and maybe after today will not be again.
I am not asking you to agree. I am asking you to write politely and accurately when you disagree. Always believe the Author has good intention and never suggest otherwise. If you believe you found a mistake or misjudgment by the Author, point it out and provide fact or reasoning why this shall be a mistake / misjudgment.
Following these rules will turn this place to be much more pleasurable and will attract more competent and more knowledgeable posters too. So you will be rewarded with more information in comments and more joy reading them
Hey "Father",Why don't you take your camera and go out to get some pics ? .. I think your brain must need some oxygen now .. IMHO DP staff are mature enough to deal with their own defence ..
wow !!! .. what a commercial rapidity .. when dpr has posted its "Review in progress: Pentax K-5 II and K-5 II S" I have expected a more recent CANIKON camera imminent in-depth review; .. well done guys .. but stop taking no CANIKONers for idiots ;) :)
Jimmy jang Boo: I also think it wouldn't be a bad idea for DPR to ask what cameras most people are interested in having reviewed.
I'm K5 IIs owner and very interested by the issue of this review; .. sorry if that bothers you .. :)
pretty tricky a take, .. IMHO it deserves a place in the first 3
the same to you, .. and keep going, you do great job
senn_b: thanks for this pretty interesting challenge, Ruth, .., but IMHO you need to find out the meaning of "profile". :-))
"Bottoms Up" .. like this then ?..http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=693982&View=NewFirst&Rows=4
sorry for insisting, Ruth, .., I just try to understand, .. but I won't insist anymore. Good luck for your challenge. Hope to participate in your next, .. sincerely.
happy christmas to you .. :-))
