Where is my Canon F1D or AE1D?
Francis Carver: "One of the most discussed cameras of 2012????"
Wow.... 2012 must have been a very short year indeed. I thought the world was not supposed to end until sometime in November, no?
Re. the model designation.... these weirdo model numbers are getting more and more ridiculous from all mfrs. Looks like it is the lab rates themselves deciding that the thing will be called at the end.
LOL!!!!!!!!! i know eh! i think D800 vs 5D3 should be the most discussed cameras of 2012.. OM what? O! Lame puss?! hahahahahhaahhaa.....
dimalozz: All we need is... samples! :)
Anepo: "'It wasn’t really a choice at all. The way I look at it is convert or die. It’s a very steep learning curve but once you get into it, it’s like anything - you get into your stride and away you go."
I think that what he say's here gives an example of the opposite Kodak did in fact.
They were having trouble going the steep learning curve and to convert properly.
I think the videos Dan is doing are amazing And if I had a DSLR or any camera at all right now I would be going into my valley to record a video.But seeing as I do not even have a compact camera due to the economy that will have to wait for maybe a year or two.
moment of true!
Nerdlinger: It never fails...any sort of Pentax post and the Canon/Nikon/Sony/Etc sheeple trolls make their daily appearance to bash Pentax once again. It gets to be tiring as a fan of Pentax. This move shows faith in Pentax from Ricoh...they just handed the reins of their consumer imaging division over to Pentax. The sheeple can "bahh bahh bahh bash" all they want. To me this move shows Pentax continues to roll along.
It's simple people...really simple. If you want extremely reasonable priced imaging equipment compared to the just about every single other company buy a Pentax system. Do you care about class leading IQ? Buy a Pentax. They have supported the K mount for decades, and there are a crap ton of lenses out there. Are Pentax's available in stores in the US? No. Are they carried by every single online retailer? YES.
Stick to the Canon/Nikon/Etc posts and profess your love there...do not jump on the Pentax posts to do your typical trolling. Haters......
should i reply to that idiot's comment? mmm....nah~~~ what a waste of my time~~ lol
oh...i am a Canon/Pentax/Pentacon guy now. People nowadays buy into brands so kids that don't know the history behind Contax/Pentax won't bother with Pentax. Oh....Pentax's design certainly doesn't catch eyeballs either. <== you know it's true~~ lol
anyways...I still love PENTAX.
you are overeacting~ people bash pentax because they don't know the history of it and certainly don't know how to appreciate it. why bother arguing with them?
when pentax makes its second FF DSLR....it will be a glorious day for pentax again.
SimenO1: Nice camera line up - crap lens line up. Whats the point of having slim cameras and 24 Mp if the whole package delivers either crap sharpness? I hope the 2013 snap pancake can deliver the sharpness the other pancake can't. That would make one interessting lens for me. Though, whats the point of having a system camera if only one lens sits on there?
hence they got a new CEO
rgnewell: I own a Panasonic LX3 and was amazed when Sony introduced the NEX with an APS size imager in a body about the same size as my LX3. I had hoped that Sony would have a lens about the same physical size as the 24-60 mm f2 on my LX3, but evidently not. Maybe Sony will surprise me. Until then, I sit on the sidelines.
it's 24-60 f2-f2.8.
Gothmoth: why would you spend your money on a pentax system when your starting with photography?
imo canon or nikon have far superior systems.pentax may has some nice cameras and a few nice lenses.but looking at the whole system around it.... why buy into pentax?
how many students in the 70s and 80s could afford photography equipments back then? Pentax was a solution to them and the results were outstanding.
Ed Dickau: I am a Nikon person and have been since 1958. My back up system is Pentax, the K5 models. Some of the commentary here is ludicrous to say the least. Pentax suffers only from a failure in the promotion department. Maybe that will change. Their partnership with Hoya/Tokina is a positive one and their own glass has some very fine lenses. We won't even bother to discuss the 645...a top shelf product, so lets hope the next thing we see is full frame weather tight Pentax model.
YES YES YES!!!!!! a FF MZ-SD would be awesome!!!!
tessl8d: I almost bought the K5 just over a week ago, everyting about it felt and worked right,a few days later I saw the KO1 and the money's stayed in my pocket. If this is the Ricoh/Pentax way, then I'm afraid that they will find themselves with some big problems, I'm not buying into a system from a company that might not be there in 3-5 years. If the slim,light and capable NEX7, was weatherproofed, I'd be happy to wait 6 months for it. Hint Pentax.
Pentax won't die like Contax.
i want Canon F1D or AE1D...that's all...
bradleyg5: Yawn, wake me up with they hit F/0.8. f0.95 is not terribly impressive when you only have to produce an image circle 1/4th the size of fullframe. sure the intensity of light is high, but the total amount of light passed through the lens is not worthy of that price tag.
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha..(fell of my chair)...hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha...OMG!!!!!!!!!!!
whtchocla7e: Best news I've heard all year. Deep down inside.. I had hope.The X100 is no longer a contender for me.
Big fevon in a small package. Dreams do come true.
DaSigmaguy isn't so Sigma...
..........how are they gonna compete with Canon/Nikon with these lenses?
$2300........i am looking at my piggy bank and 24-70L. no~ i am not going to replace it with 24-70L II since it's missing IS between the L and II. damn you canon~~
audijam: 24mm and 28mm with IS but 24-70 doesn't have IS....am i reading it wrong? a....F you canon...i am sticking with old 24-70 then
$2300?! I bet you the old school 28-70L is probably as still good as this one (well...won't be as sharp but 1/3 of this one).
Clint Dunn: So they put IS on a 24 and a 28mm........but NOT the 24-70 that everybody has been asking for???? I don't get it. Personally I could give two $hits if the 24-70 ended up being a bit bigger and heavier with IS....I WANTED the IS!! Besides, anyone worried about kit size isn't using a full frame and Canon 24-70 anyway.
cannot agree more with you~ this is going to be kit lens with 5DIII.
