On article UPDATED: CP+ 2016: shooting the Pentax K-1 in Yokohama (378 comments in total)

Being an Olympus Micro 4/3rds user. This looks like an excellent landscape and astrophotography camera. Will be interesting to see the ISO tests when it is released.

dprived prev: a dedicated loyal Pentaxian for decades here:

fine, i do love this camera for a number of very good reasons.

and i don't really care it doesn't include IBIS for video anymore. (although i'm sure it'll certainly do that later when K-1II will come out in a year or two at the most.)

but at least two things about this camera are making me feel not so happy about it:

look below in the next comment please.

That "gimmicky" LCD screen looks to be tough as nails. Check out into 1:50 of this video.....http://bit.ly/1TCYHEt

@Teila Day. You need to get a life along with a new camera.

I look forward to seeing what Thom Hogan has to say about the Pentax K-1.

Nikons are overpriced boat anchors.

matthew saville: Man, combine this little but rock-solid workhorse with the "known" success of the Tamron-Pentax 15-30 2.8, and I think we have a new astro-landscape champion on our hands. This kit'll give a D810A + 14-24 2.8 quite a run for its money!

I don't see the Tamron 15-30/Pentax mount either on B&H or Amazon. Do they still make it?

On article Nikon D750 Review (1979 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thermidor: I'm seriously considering the D610 and Sony A7 which is much more in my price range, but I'm curious to know how much better the D750 is if you ignore the tilting LCD screen and wi-fi (which are nice to have, but not a must-have). The biggest draw for me is the one stop higher ISO performance, but is there anything else that stands out? I'm quite inclined to the D610 because it has a silent shutter option, which helps a lot with the stage shooting I normally do. I don't need to track very complicated subjects, and more often than not, I'll focus and recompose from the central AF point, so I don't need a highly sophisticated AF system, just good metering and high ISO performance.

If you shoot RAW the D610 is a no brainer purchase over the D750. Take the $800 savings and put it towards a nice lens.

Stitzer23: This d750 makes the d610 look good!

The D610 is $800 cheaper. That's why it looks good.

blink667: Curious about the coming competition between the D750 and Sony A7II which has in-body stabilization and is $1000 cheaper with a 28-70mm.

Huh? The A7II with the 28-70mm is $300 less than the D750. http://bhpho.to/12oXZmf

Donnie G: Olympus makes great lenses. It's too bad that these lenses are being made for a dying system. Micro 4/3 will be laid to rest alongside 4/3 because both Olympus and Panasonic together can't generate enough sales volume to keep the standard alive, and 3rd party lens makers are swallowing up the few chances at profit that are left. R.I.P. M4/3.

You mean the lagging FF DSLR dinosaur is dying.

maxnimo: Okay, I'm trying hard to not burst into laughter, but what would a serious photographer use a 7-14mm lens for?

The only thing I can think of is a sneaky, dishonest realtor who wants to make a small room appear huge.

Ummm. A landscape photograph????

Rolandigital: It's a shame. Nikon almost nailed it.
Nikon was very close to everyone's dreamed the perfect camera...

Where did you have the chance to actually see and test the camera?

I get a kick out of everyone on this forum who is already such an expert and knows so much about this camera. Yet it isn't even officially released yet...
