Pat Cullinan Jr: A propos of nothing, that is the ugliest animal I ever saw in my whole life since I was born.
As opposed to your whole life before you were born?
If we continue to debate such nonsense, we deserve a future on the Planet Of The Apes.
Put any lens you want on it, you whiners. Price does not include a lens - crappy or otherwise.
pacnwhobbyist: What a great time to be a perspective camera buyer. Although like I mentioned before in a previous comment section, it might be worth waiting until Photokina to see what else comes out. Nonetheless, this looks like it will be a great camera. I wonder if it will put downward price pressure on the RX10.
Now, THAT's funny!
Check it out:
SEVEN lenses, no purse, all for $999.95
That's a lot of metal & glass to get to an f2 normal.
Interesting grip - from where?
The specifications page lists the body material as magnesium alloy, and the design page refers to it as plastic. Which is it ?
So, a very handy external dial is lost ...
BobYIL: Awww! Fujifilm copied Leica X Vario!! ;p
In a week, no less.
D1N0: It's not compact, it doesn't have a flash, it has a slow zoom and no viewfinder and it costs more than everything else.
same place as on the X2
"Just an old fashion stock Ford Pickup from the 50′s that rides as smooth as it was off the lot."
How smoothly could it roll with wheels that shape!?!???
Q: How do you spell fish?
f= gh, as in "enough"i = o, as in "women"sh = ti, as in "nation"
Easy as that.
Oh, by the way, it's GIF, not JIF. Computer wizards NEVER think anything through all the way.
According to Fuji's site, there are a number of grid line options for aiding composition. Your comments that this is lacking confuses me.
How many hunters are at all upset that Nikon makes cameras and lenses used by PETA members?
Any top-flap bag will open away from you ... just turn it around.
Make a B&W only version and be done with it.
topstuff: There are a lot of apparently stupid people here. I don't mean to insult, but really, some of the comments are ignorant. If people do not know what they are talking about, its best to say nothing...
The camera is thicker than a NEX ( for example ) for a reason. The Pentax is the ONLY mirrorless that will take all lenses without an adaptor.
Now consider what a NEX looks like with the Adaptor for Alpha lenses attached, or indeed any adaptor needed to extend the miserably short lens range NEX offer. The adaptor needed is HUGE , UGLY and ruins the handling.
The Pentax K 01 needs NO adaptor to take ALL lenses.
This point seems to be entirely missed by the sheep here..
The K-5 also needs NO adaptor to take ALL lenses. What's the advantage to this camera over the K-5?
Guess I'll wait for the K-02, or K-11, or whatever it is that offers an advantage to using all those legacy lenses that the K-5 doesn't already provide.
