06m1r3m86: I've always loved the Safari Leica R's, and if I could get that in a modern DSLR, that would be awesome.
A point of annoyance, I currently have a Canon, would prefer to not switch brands, but I want a weather sealed camera so bad and Pentax has done such a better job at bringing weather sealing down to consumer cameras while still keeping the camera small. The K3, it's smaller than the Canon 70D and Nikon D7100 and yet it still has a full metal body and everything else those cameras have (though the AF doesn't have the same "wow" factor on paper). Why can't the other companies do what Pentax is doing so I wouldn't have to mull over my desire to stick with Canon?
And that kit lens, it's weather resistant, but I haven't seen any clear pictures of the lens mount, is it plastic or is it metal?
agree..try dropping a metal and a plastic lens..the metal would break in two but the plastic will still keep you shooting and don't get break in two.
Alex Sarbu: DPReview, this is how it should be done:http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2015/02/09/pentax-k-s2-targets-the-family-photographer-with-handy-mix-of-enthusiast-co
Not your constant mockery.
i agree with you,alex.i read it the other day and at IR it states that the KS2 has a mic port,while at DPR's full specification of the camera ,it says a big NO....what a shame... i reported it to them,but until now,it's not yet corrected..
wow! the pentaxians invaded DPR...!
DPR isn't nice to Pentax ...1st was the ''blinking lights'' and now.the ''shiny disco lights''...does it needs to be mentioned?
David Hurt: Who would want a camera that color????
m e !!!!! that woluld match my wrangler unlimited edition ! !
driftnomore: is my k-5 better than the k-3?
wow! thanks paul...if we have only choices of lenses here in europe.lenses here are scant and are more expensive.thought of sellimg my k-5.
is my k-5 better than the k-3?
wow! an external 4k recorder costs $2k,making it at least $4k to shoot a 4k?......whoah! the tv would be at least 55 inch that you have to chop of your living room to accommodate the tv...crazy.
evoprox: What does this remind me of ??? I can only hope for you guys that they don't repeat the NEX desaster (more bodies than lenses) and come out with some decent glass pretty quick before they ditch it altogether yet again. After 3 years in the NEX world my money goes to Fuji these days - couldn't be happier.
minolta's R&D died when sony acquired minolta.do you think minolta will continue their R&D for sony?look how other companies make sony sensors produce better image qualities compared to their own cameras? it's a shame to produce a good sensor but can't apply it to their own cameras and make it achieve better performance.poor sony!...or,produce lenses every month,not cameras if you want to survive.
sony ,flourishing the market with a new camera almost every month.//>,.,)(**&&^%%@$%??//???? STRUGGLING?
''evolution''.............EVOLVE! ......then,evolve the D300s and other lenses that needs evolving !
driftnomore: next time,don't waste your money on any sony product.........
some manufacturers buy their sensors from sony ,but they are executing it better than the seller.......
next time,don't waste your money on any sony product.........
..the pentax k-3 review is left in the cold....
other websites has reviewed it with fair results.you may not review it,dpr anyway..
samsung, make bulldozers and rollers not cameras ! ! !
fz750: Am I the only one wondering why the Pentax K3 got twice as many votes as any other camera in that group?
It doesn´t seem logical to me, given the reviews (of all the cameras), price (50% more than the D7100 here) and number of sales and lens support etc etc
I own none of these cameras voted upon, just an interested observer..
if and when you'll want a camera,buy one, and you'll know why it was voted overwhelmingly.even those who own nikon and canons voted for it because of its innovative and evolutionary features and even if DPR didn't give us a complete review of the product.
i wish RICOH would use the pictures of the K-3 drenched in water instead of the ricoh logo on all their sponsored tennis tournaments advertisements and have thESE words added..PENTAX K-3 MADE BY RICOH...i guess,it would make a great impact on the K-3 in the market and the RICOH CO.
.........and i think,all the winners of this poll are deserving...the majority have just chosen the best in every category.at least, for the products that didn't come out in front,they deserve to represent for the respective manufacturers.and for NIKON,i think it could have gone different had they rolled a NIKON D400.
dylanbarnhart: Unfortunately the best doesn't always sell because:
. People make purchase decisions based on value. Photographers got locked into a system. Mediocre cameras of today are actually quite good. Non-photographers buy the camera they see pros are using rather than the camera they need. Innovation makes a good read, but they aren't always useful
these are the stupid but with the cash buyers.....
