aekn: Sorry, this isn't sharp enough for me.
It was sarcasm on my part. Excellently sharp!!
Sorry, this isn't sharp enough for me.
What if he was the photographer too, and all of these were taken in self timer mode!
mpgxsvcd: I really liked the content of the images. However, far too many of them were simply ruined by stopping down too far. That produced motion blur, shutter shock blurring, and low detail images because of diffraction.
The person taking these pictures treated the camera like it was a full frame camera. There was absolutely no reason to stop down that far in several of the images.
No wonder everyone thinks m4/3s can’t be used for action sports. If you shoot with the camera in this manner you definitely will not have a good keeper rate.
Samuel - so how was the shooting experience?
aekn: Ironically, I experience more arm and eye fatigue using a mirrorless camera holding it at arm's length while squinting, than I do a proper (yes, proper) camera with an optical viewfinder that I can actually see my subject through clearly when held to my eye. The resulting quality of images tend to show a similar trend.
Which camera with an EVF has the clarity of an OVF in daylight conditions? Not the X-T1, Not the A7/II/r, or any from Panasonic. Maybe Olympus' are that good. If so, I really do need to check them out. Everything I've seen looks like you're trying to see through a dirty set of contact lenses at best.
Or are we just talking about snapshots here? Maybe I'm being too picky for the group engaged in this dialogue.

We're Nikon and we're going to continue to do things the way we have because we are Nikon. But we're not going to deny doing something different in the future.
Looks like a polished turd.
marc petzold: I'd like more the K-50 Design, or K-30. But in fact the K5 Series & K3 looks best from a Pentax Body for my eyes. Just classical, black look, no experiments, no design stuff or flashing LEDs like the S1. As for the S2 Pictures: especially when i do see the image illlustration 3 & 4 here, i'd wondering myself - is that a "real" camera, or some kind of cheap toy?Sorry, i can't bear these silly so called design experiments...perhaps i'm too old for stuff like that, indeed, but i wouldn't choose that sort of design even if i'd be 12 oder 25 either way back in time.
Yes, that's right. If you want a serious looking camera, then buy a K-3 or 645z, or wait for the new FF model. Otherwise, let's try not to take ourselves too seriously.
jaxson: No mic or headphone ports.No mention of real stabilisation during video, instead of the rubbish simulated 'Movie SR' offered presently.
If not for video, then the flip out screen is for selfies?
The screen is for taking pictures, which is what all good DSLRs are for. Movies are for camcorders, which this is not. Look to another brand, my friend.
Horshack: Ricoh's announcement: Get ready to get ready!
By announcing an end of 2015 delivery date, Ricoh has really put a stake in the ground this time. I don't see them missing this target, or major credibility will be lost. As much as we joke about Pentax/Ricoh, when they've promised something, they appear to deliver as promised.
Which is better than their usual "Get ready, to get ready to be getting ready".
Good article. Makes me wonder how much my brand of choice (PENTAX) studies the sales of their existing full-frame lenses vs. APS-C to see how many are positioning themselves for a possible future full-frame body.
aekn: These Canon reviews with real world comparisons are great validation for those with "aging" technology like that of the Nikon D7000.
I guess investing in a new D7000 for $525 right now isn't such a bad move, from an image quality standpoint.
That's why I just bought 3 of them!!

aekn: As long as Canon (and its incompetence) is around, Richard's business should thrive!
Now we just need to get Richard the startup funds to build a sensor for Canon and they'd be all set.

We're contemplating full frame...unless we can make it in a million colors. Then it's a no brainer!
So wrong! So PENTAX!
