Neodp: I'll give you $1 for it!

The FG is a more exiting film camera. Just not the first. Smaller (relatively) size, full program mode, "A" priority, or manual. Classic look. Rock solid. Smaller than the FE. Add any manual 50 and you're good to go. Even the AF D which is a fine combo. The FG is basically what the Df should have looked like.

You must have a different FG to the ones I handled..
It always felt to me like a Cosina product..
BTW, I owned an EM, nothing particularly wrong with it but that series of cameras are not all that closely related to the FM/FE and a long way away from the F.

In reply to:

Realll: "Overall, the ZS100's photo quality is very good, though not the best in the 1"-type sensor class. The 20MP CMOS sensor captures a good amount of detail, though its lens isn't terribly sharp and JPEG sharpening is on the weak side. Colors lean toward neutral and yellows take on a greenish cast, which can lead to undesirable skin tones."

GOLD???? Really?

I am guessing that it works the same way as it does for boxing at the Olympic games.
There is a Gold medal for the heavyweight and another one for the featherweight and several in between.
In other words DPR thinks that this camera is at the top of its category not the best camera ever unconditionally.

tjk123: It looks like Pentax guys came for a holiday to New Zealand, as the image of the city by the lake looks suspiciously like Queenstown. Beautiful city I might add. Now I know why the camera is late - they must have been enjoying their holidays too much :-)

Yes, a so so photo of some Remarkables mountains.

Aroart: Any one know why they call it supper 8. when its so mini..lol... Long live the Bohemian film makers...

BTW, 8mm and Super 8 refers to the width of the film (7.9mm)
the exposed part, frame, is larger with Super 8 because the sprockets are smaller

marcio_napoli: Ok... I've just seen the full res tiffs.

Seriously.

Never. Seen. Such. Quality. Before.

It makes the D800 and 5ds look like a bad taste jokes in comparison.

Never seen anything come close, and this is coming from a guy who has already shot with 4 different digital backs.

If 35mm was starting to catch up and close the gap...

...oh dear... the gap has widened again to a Grand Canyon.

Never. Seen. Such. Quality. Before.

Note that :
I am. Intelligent.
is not the same as :
I am intelligent.
So I am not all that sure what you meant by having random words one after the other.

OttoVonChriek: Nikon F mirrorless and 35mm Pentax K.

Two things that never quite make it to the market.

You do realise that this thread is about a "35mm" (Full Frame) Pentax ?

In reply to:

NoMirror99: I would like Pentax to give us an innovative design.

1. A fixed-mirror SLR with fixed leaf shutter, and EVF.
2. Leaf shutter just inside the body. Closes down when lens is removed. A dust cap, if you will.
3. Fixed mirror, no flap, or speed issues.
4. Sensor and OLED-EVF mounted back-to-back where the views screens are now.
5. Old lenses lenses still work, SLR focal distance unchanged. No more flash sync issues.
6. All the advantages of an EVF.

Leaf shutter ?
Are you kidding ?

I have no idea of what either of those suggestions mean.

PowerG9atBlackForest: Does it matter what it says on the tin as long as you are happy with what is in?

Sony is the second largest Tamron shareholder (about 12%)
Tamron has made lenses for Sony for a long time , mostly for their compact and video cameras.
