leschnyhan: This would be a great lens for a D7100. Most zoom lenses don't resolve enough detail to really exploit the potential of the 24MP sensor. I don't own a D7100, but I owned a Sony NEX-7 (until it was stolen from me), which has the same or very similar sensor. Sigma should also make this lens available for the Pentax K-3, which likewise shares a Sony 24MP sensor.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/983904-REG/sigma_210_109_18_35mm_f1_8_dc_hsm.html and yes sigma has 18-35 1.8 with K-Mount (pentax) sometime ago .. Unlike D7100, K-3 use sony sensor

Sdaniella: Pentax K-3:
Max 8.3 fps
Up to 22 RAW shots = (Max 2.65s timespan covered)
Up to 60 JPEG Large (★★★) = (Max 7.23s timespan covered)

Canon EOS 7D:
Max 8.0 fps
Up to 23/25 RAW (Large/Fine) shots = (Max 2.88s to 3.13s timespan covered)
Up to 110/130 JPEG (Large/Fine) = (Max 13.75s to 16.25s timespan covered)
Up to 17/17 RAW+JPEG (Large/Fine) = (Max 2.12s timespan covered)

the longer the timespan covered with many more shots, the better...

e.g.

JPEG:

110/130 vs 60, means 7D has 83% to 117% more hi-fps shot coverage than K-3,

and

13.75s/16.25s vs 7.23s, 7D has 90% to 125% more timespan coverage, than the K-3.

~ double the coverage

you forgot to mention K-3 loaded with 24MP with much better IQ in all aspect (HI, LI, DR etc) vs 18 MP soso IQ - feeling insecure eh ?

kai liu: many times, lens is way more important than body. I used to use pentax for 2 years. then I switched to canon 7d. Canon just have so much more lens choice. Pentax lens selection is really limited. And their lens quality are behind canon lens. When I see k-3, it sure looking amazing, but then I think about those pentax lens I have used, I lost interest. I think pentax's priority is to update their lens. They have not announce some high quality lens for many years.(except that 560mm) but look at canon they keep making new lens and update old lens with better optical.

Good reason, i was thinking the same, but since I only need 3-4 lenses (12-300mm) I dont see it as a problem. K3 is the winner in every aspect.

glad, I didn't buy D7100 or even K3 makes 70 D look like a toy... ups i'm sorry. Ok I am sold.

raimaster: Firstly i really want to know which OS version dpr team use for this test? Second, its bit too early to make a test because new OS 10.1 just leaked yesterday (you can download it) add. new feature such as HDR and camera improvement even better. Do you want to re-shots again after upgrading the OS? I have Z10 and i think its not below the other smartphone on market today. Few camera application is really good.

Oh no way, once you buy from another carriers today (except Verizon) the newer OS is already there to download. Published since last month i guess. Why it is important? because you will have Z10 with overall much better performance and slightly better in low light shooting.

Ouch do you use Z10 from Verizon for this test?? its bad, really bad because it has the oldest OS. Try the newer ones from AT&T or Canada carrier or event download the latest OS. There is many improvement, Yes, Z10 has HDR mode, it has also stabilization shooting mode (my fave mode), - check it out nice shot by Z10:

dp62: Set aside the price, an increasing group of people are not in favour of carrying around a bulky DSLR.

Instead they seek an outstanding compact camera, fitting in a big (coat) pocket, or a small 'belt bag', with preferrably an APS-C sensor.
They may be the "once in a while photoshooters", but whilst doing so, they donot wish compromise on quality too much, accepting that compact cameras are simply incomparible to DSLRs.

I think there aren't too many compact camera's with an APS-C sensor.

Fujifilm x100s:
127x74x54mm (5x2.91x2.13"), 16.3 MP, 2.8" screen (460.000 dots), 35 mm, abt usd 1400

Leica X2:
124x69x52mm (4.88x2.72x2.05"), 16.2 MP, 2.7" screen (230.000 dots), 36 mm, abt. usd 1950

Nikon Coolpix A:
111x64x40mm (4.37x2.52x1.57"), 16.2 MP, 3" screen (921.000 dots), 28 mm, abt. usd 1100
(famous D7000 sensor)

The Coolpix A is the smallest and have a 3"/921.000.
In this specific segment, at this moment, I believe they offer competitive product.

Ricoh GR :
117x61x34mm have 3" 16,3MP (sensor K5IIs) 3" 1.230.000 28mm f/2.8 with 9 blades, built in ND for about USD.800, - you know the winner already.

interesting about AF performance in low light:

"In single AF mode the EOS 5D Mark III's AF performs very well, too, even in very low light, despite the lack of an AF-assist lamp. Rated down to EV-2, which is equivalent to moonlight, we've been constantly impressed by the ability of the 5D III's AF system to get solid focus in light where the 5D Mark II would have been completely unable to operate."
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii/14

Pentax K-5II: The biggest difference is the latest, SAFOX X, autofocus sensor. This is designed to work in lower light than any of its rivals (down to -3EV) it will also provide greater accuracy when working with F2.8 and fast lenses.

can we say that K-5II has the same performance in low light shooting compare to 5DMKIII ? plus K-5II has an assist lamp :)

with OVF pentaprism 100%, WR body, dual dial, per lens AF adjustment, focus peaking and superb IQ but price of mid-level K-30 is obviously the king of mid-level camera.

necessarily all brand has this category: mid-level ++ (ovf penta-prism 100%, WR body, dual dial, focus peaking, per lens AF fine adjustment and superb IQ with the price of mid-level camera. Look at canon, only FF canon can surpass IQ of K30 ( RAW)
