On Just Posted: Pentax K-30 full review article (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

jonikon: The K-30 may be a very good camera (leaving the reliability issue of Pentax DSLRs aside), but it only makes up one half of the image quality equation, with the other half being the lens in front of the sensor. Unfortunately the Pentax DSLRs suffer from a lot of cheap lenses with poor optical qualities, or very expensive lenses with acceptable, but not exceptional optical qualities.
For example, the Pentax SMC 16-50mm f/2.8 lens is over $1400 at reputable dealers like B&H photo, but this lens only gets 3 stars out of 5 (or 60%), for optical quality from the Photozone lens review. For value and the ultimate in optical lens quality, Nikon is a much better choice for lenses than Pentax, which makes a Nikon DSLR the better choice for a camera.

"Unfortunately the Pentax DSLRs suffer from a lot of cheap lenses with poor optical qualities, or very expensive lenses with acceptable, but not exceptional optical qualities. .. " (dixit jonikon)

pure absurdity .. probably you failed here the opportunity to mute .. :)) you're probably not a faithful dp reader ..

In reply to:

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.

".. they need to make good lenses."

.. pure absurdity ..

In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: Wow, talk about deja-vu. It feels like 2010 all over again. Basicly, same sensor, same build, same IQ, same everything, except for some claims on a new AF (oh dear, pentax AF..). People are dreaming at a D800, 5Dmk3, a FF mirorless, a FF affordable camera (rumored D600), and Pentax-Ricoh re-release the K5...

.. a FF ? what for then ?
as for the "dream, .. I am a Pentax user and I was dreaming a Pentax K5 with better AF capabilities, .. so I'm very happy about this announcement, .. now I'm waiting dp review results to appreciate the extend of the improvement, .. If you think that Pentax offer doesn't go far enough to meet your expectations you can always go with a Canikon, .. then you can have your FF, .. but again .. what for ?

In reply to:

Heie2: I find the 3 months it is taking to review this camera and the ensuing "trickle" of sections within a complete review (which gives none of these "installments" any substance and context) insulting - how many cameras have you guys reviewed in the mean time?

DPReview - Fair and Balanced, right?

Nikon D3200: announced April 19, 2012; reviewed July 2012
Canon EOS 650D : announced June 8, 2012; reviewed Aug 2012
Pentax K30D: announced May 21, 2012; still not reviewed at September 7, 2012

On Natural Frame challenge (5 comments in total)

"I don't think you have the idea of the challenge. I don't see a frame around something. lovely photo, but not quite right for this challenge. I think you'd need to remove the top of the photo to make it more of a framing." (dixit challenge host)

That's a question of perspective, .. and also of ability to see. Anyway, .. you are the host, .. you are the "judge" .
Thanks for leaving me time to replace my photo

PS: I've got also some problems with your definition of "natural" ..

regards
