HubertChen: Maybe when seeing how big Full Frame Lenses suitable for sensor shift image stabilization are will cause a good thing: A lot of those who cried for a Pentax Full Frame camera for so long might realize that APS-C has its place. It provides a great balance: You can bring a complete range of lenses in a shoulder bag versus a full fledged photo back pack!
I buy FF for work.I buy NEX for fun.I buy NEXUS 5 for random @$@#$.
FF is the future and Pentax is going the right direction.
prossi: OMG! la a7000 es no mas? no bueno!
你他媽的！ 叫你傻逼你回覆嗎？ 哈哈！
OMG! I don't own Sony image products. I don't care!
OMD! Sony continuerai la a7000! Pas problem!
all this time i dread of FF pentax that would look just like the MZ-S but not anymore because this prototype looks so much better. this one doesn't look like any other current pentax cameras. the design is very simple and looks JUST right!
i will start buying back pentax lenses now. i miss my FA 85.
ThatCamFan: Canon is the giant whos slowly falling asleep more each year until they wake up and realize everyone has left the party leaving canon without a way to get back home.
Canon is actually the host....
audijam: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apprently steelhead doesn't know any bit of Pentax and Contax's history.
audijam: WTF?!?!?! $3G?!?!?!?! are you @#$@#ing out of your mind? JPY tanked so why can't they make LESS profit on exchange gains.
But Henrik doesn't buy it....LOL!
we bitch, we moan, we cry because we see the use of it and can use it for our productions. you don't bitch, you dont' moan and you don't cry because you only see MTF and will never buy this lens for anything anyways. may this lens becomes your new wallpaper :)
i am getting it regardless. i will get my money back just after couple of weddings.
veroman: I thought the war was over.
It's only the beginning.

CameraLabTester: Pentax comes out with a full frame promise 14 years after the announcement.
Pentax users have an amazingly great patience.
i can see Contax N1 and Pentax 67 in this new concept. it looks very beautiful!
I think this is number 1.
Tonkotsu Ramen: You should add that they reduced the minimum focusing distance by 15 cm (from 30cm to 15cm) on the wide end, and 5cm (from 40cm to 35cm) on the long end, for the 16-50
good improvement indeed
street prices should have half of that!
(unknown member): Why is an insolvent company producing new products?
LOL! it's not that easy to go fully bankrupt. trustee takes over, go through working capital, go through restructuring process blah blah blah....they will try to find new buyers so the trustee could make more money out of it blah blah blah....then....investors get some back...SOME :)
yeah...you will see more products like this coming out from Metz and don't ask this question again. LOL
Donnie G: To all of you techies who say that you can already do, with equipment you already own, everything that the Canon CS100 is suppose to do, I say you are absolutely right. I can too. However, the CS100 isn't designed for you and me. It's made for the billions of low tech and no tech folks out there who used to buy billions of disposable and cheap P&S cameras before the camera phone came along. Those non-photographers are still out there, and that's where the potential sales are for this device. Would I buy this device for myself? No! But, my photography and tech challenged friends and family members might buy several. There are billions of them and only a few hundred million of us techies. Is Canon on to something, or on something? Time will tell. :)
P.S. please don't take that I am challenging you. I am just giving my 2 cents. I have read many of your posts/replies and you a definitely one of the knowledge people on DP that I look up to.
I agree but when a non-techy can understand NFC, this and that...they probably can become more familiar with technology and realize HEY! i don't need this since I can transfer/share photos/video via other costless methods. Nevertheless, i don't even think non-techy guys will buy many of these because they are not interested especially with such a price tag.
I'd rather have Canon comes out with their smart tv box which can download photos/video from cameras wireless and automatically uploads to social medias the app must allow users to play around the format of "webpages" so everyone has a unique presentation. if this can be done, i will buy it and a smaller tv as a photo frame at home.
