You lost me at €5000...try to start over and just not tell us the price until the end...
reminds me of the simpsons homer-mobile episode...
"How much does this monstrosity cost?!"
what a silly idea
If they had built this camera and the previous Q around a 1/1.6 or 2/3 sensor it would have made more sense...as it is there are several cheaper better performing options now. I just think Pentax created too weak of a foundation for this system to ever be truly successful.
Stopped down the lens to f/6.3 for the test shots?? That's not very smart. You are well into diffraction area (35mm equiv of f/17) at 20MP. Not only that, but you front-focused the heck out of it. If you want to extract every possible detail from the sensor, you have to keep it below f/5 and focus properly. You shot the frickin J1 at f/4.5...why did you hamstring the RX100??
C'mon. Reshoot it at a reasonable aperture, please.
What a POS.
based on nikon samples the IQ is awful...
I'm much more interested in seeing the EOS-M performing in similar tests to see if they've tuned it more for still shooting (faster, not as smooth) in that application.
Seriously, in all fairness, the new lens (according to the MTF charts) fixed the corner/edge softness issues with the 10-30 (and added an ED element). It's a shame they dropped the VR to do it.
GREAT!! I was holding off on purchasing a 1-system camera until they wised up and launched it in orange! Getting rid of that silly gimmicky "VR" nonsense is just icing on the cake! :)
When is this sensor gonna hit DXOmark? I bet the DR is crap. Still probably better than those dang Canon sensors though.
Give me a ring when AF works too. Until then, this is NOT worth US$400, IMO.
This is probably a big deal to the 5 people who actually bought a Lytro.
Some people think cucumbers taste better pickled.
Thauglor: I ditched flickr in favor of a paired use between FB and a Zenfolio account. Flickr WAS really cool.... and it sort of slowly slid out of decent functionality.
They made it more difficult to share photos on other sites, by obscuring the link code, and making tiresome to select and copy the code... A major annoyance, that didn't make any sense.
The light box, has always been too small... the slideshow is glitchy... goes on and on.
Pro site, but it feels like it's run by a greedy amateur.
Obscuring the link code? They have HTML/BBCode pre-formatted linkage under the share button on every photo on my account (along with a drop-down of all resolutions available). I have no idea what you are talking about. It couldn't be anymore efficient than how it currently is, IMO.
The physical depth spec is clearly wrong.
Intriquing camera, but I don't care for Samsung's in-house sensors. They are pretty darn awful.
Furthermore, the size of the sensor is at the limit that most manufacturers claim no real benefit from the BSI arrangement. Odd on all accounts.
Gothmoth: who will buy this over the sony RX100?i am not that´s for sure.....
sigma should do a reality check before announcing prices.
will this be another slow and cumbersome sigma camera?
you know... a good camera is more then a fancy sensor....
DP2m is for bright light photgraphic only. Unless you like posterized shadow roll-off and green/purple splotches in skin tones.
"with 10MP phone camera built in."
Let's see...the 14/2 lens = US$1800...so the 30/1.4 will be what....US$2500??
Seriously, you gotta give the folks at Schneider Kreuznach a round of applause for their insane sense of humor. :)
