I'm having issues with straight lines. At least in closed environments, like a living room, with couch, tables and doors.

Does it work better in a more open environment, like landscape photography? Any good tips from people who have been using this for longer time?

On article CP+ 2015: Hands-on with new Pentax K-S2 (171 comments in total)

Geez, where did all that b*tthurt from Pentax fans come from?

And I quite liked this army green! I only wish Pentax had used this KS design for their mirrorless camera...

Petroglyph: Is the 25-70 f/2.8 a typo? Maybe it should be 24-70?

Considering Pentax and their weird focal lenghts (like 77mm)..... 25-70 could very well be a thing!

neo_nights: Is it me or does it have more of a Medium Format look?

It'd be nice to see if Pentax could make a small camera (for fullframe standards of course) like they did with the K5.

@Richard - Yes, it could be small. It could be a "baby MF" look. Still... I'd expect something more in line with the K5/K3.

Joe Ogiba: DPR: "Nikon aims for the stars with the D810A, world’s first full-frame astrophotography camera"

Really ?

I thought that Canon already had made a modified version of one of their fullframes to astrophotography.

Maybe my monitor is defective, because I can easily see four legs.

In reply to:

neo_nights: Let's face it: sensor technology has got to a point where you simply CAN'T decide between cameras based on image quality alone. Unless you pixel peep (which is expected from a gear forum, I know), a picture *well taken* with a Canon 1000D and a Sony A7 is negligible for most people's eyes.

So, while those galleries (by 'galleries' I mean: from all the recent cameras that have been posted on DPR) are nice to give SOME idea about a camera, it can't be the decisive factor.

@HowaboutRAW - Well, there are some posts here ditching the image quality of the A7II.
(TBH, I find them a bit "too digital" for my taste. But that's me pixel peeping. I wouldn't mind getting an A7II if someone wanted to give one to me :D)

@ Rinkos: " i doubt a person is buying a dslr based on that ." You almost answered your initial question with this quote.

Exactly what I said: since image quality has been getting "good enough", people won't (or SHOULDN'T) by a camera based on image quality alone. They'll consider a lot of other things, which would include 'worst case scenarios'.

But there's a catch here: I'd guess that a lot of people would buy a camera expecting a 'worst case scenario' and never actually get into one....

mike kobal: lets pretend for a second these photos are master pieces. Then the comments would probably read
"amazing photographer, he could have shot this with any camera, he waited a week to capture that shot, we want to see real life samples ......"
a knowledgeable photographer or enthusiast should be able to draw a few conclusions from looking at these nice and basic samples :)

Short version for what you said: people are never satisfied.

Or, an alternative way: people are just being... people.
:)

"But higher ISOs and better dynamic range is still easier with FF cameras--even ones compressing raws like this Sony A7II."

No doubt. But then those would fall into the "specifics" of each camera, the different things that would, then, make the 'decisive factor' between camera X, Y or Z. Along with handling, focus speed and accuracy, lenses, support and lots of other things.

That is to say: people shouldn't get too hooked up or excited on those 'real-world galleries' here and start praising/bashing the cameras based on what they see here because that represents so little of a camera's true capacity nowadays.

Lenses make a difference, no question.

About High ISO and DR, as much as I agree with you, this is why I said "a picture well taken" (which means also 'on good circumstances'). Given proper lightning, time to compose a shot etc., image quality on APS-C cameras have been "good enough" for quite some time, thankfully.

NEXT Please!

There is no *any* reason to looking any photos more for the *reason* above.

"Go to the college, go to the college". Is that all you've learned from your college? Heheheheh! Oh, please!

I think I've made my point very clear and see no reason to argue over who said what first.

Yes, I have completed College education. And your attack is very childish.

Maybe we are discussing different points of views because of different native language backgrounds. But, from MY understanding (if I were to translate that phrase) "someone says something" does not imply that he's the first to say that thing. And like Erick said, maybe da Vinci "stole" that phrase from his local baker.... :p

WHERE in the text is stating that Marsel was the AUTHOR of that quote?

It only states that he says it. He could have heard somewhere else and repeat it as a personal mantra, for instance.

People forget that this is a GEAR oriented site. So it's only natural that the photographer mentions the gear he has used.

neo_nights: It's positively amazing that we do not have pictures of: People suffering nor old people from distant villages with their faces oversharpened and over constrasty to makes their wrinkles stand out.

I think that even clichè pictures like #9 are well done and nice to look at.

"They're not a zoo, but for photographers, them and their home are basically treated like one."

Perfect comment!
