  • In a way it does very much so, meaning that one superb DFA*50 does not make a system, indicating the value of third party lens support. And no, I did not buy the DFA*50, because I bought the Zeiss ...
  • Now where is that 24/25mm DFA*? :-O
  • I agree here, it seems best to wait another year to see where Nikon and Canon are heading, and for Sony to show its lens release plans, and its heavily rumored high end APS-C body. If Sony does ...
  • Number 6 is superb! Chris
  • I have to agree here. I shortly had the KP (one month) and traded it back in for a K3II. The KP is for me also where I parted with Pentax and their imaging ideas. Unless a possible new APS camera ...
  • Although I have serious doubts whether a new "high end" Pentax APS camera would be economically sound for Ricoh, with the emphasis on full frame of the past years, and with the accelerating shift ...
  • That would be a bad habit, but I was comparing lowest prices I have seen for the Nikon's, both discounted. However, the Nikon D850 has a going price of 3500,- and the D500 has had a going price of ...
  • Sales of cameras will determine whether they can still be made without dragging a company down by using up resources and not returning the investments. Look at eg. Canon: they have clearly ...
  • You may ask yourself whether the neccessity is still there to develop and manufacture an APS crop camera. Nikon's D850 crop mode essentially gives you a APS D500 camera, and with FF sensors ...
  • The KP is a nice camera for allround shooting, but I traded it in for a K3II a month after purchase (coming from a K3). In many regards, the KP was a departure from the wildlife outdoors type of ...
  • Yes, the KP was a very poor K3II successor, although always denied that it was just that: the new APS-C flagship. I suppose that even the most sceptical will no longer deny that the KP was not ...
  • Replied in Huuuu??
    I just read through this thread, had not seen it yet. It seems to me that many people guessing weight and price are incorrectly comparing the weight and prices of Full Frame F4 lenses to this new ...
  • Replied in Huuuu??
    They are working on a high end APS-C body and a 200-600mm lens, but these are still rumors only, and Sony tends to overprice their bodies until 18 months after launch, when prices start to drop to ...
  • Replied in Huuuu??
    I have to admit, I am also in the process of switching away from Pentax. For me the reason is the lack of a suitable APS-C body for birding and wildlife, as well as new and revolutionary supertele ...
  • Replied in Huuuu??
    That is exactly my point: The limitations that Pentax faces lie first and foremost with the ones that run Pentax: the Ricoh bosses, and the decisions that they make, or not make, to invest in ...
  • Replied in Huuuu??
    You may very well underestimate the capabilities of the combined Ricoh/Pentax engineering force. Olympus is also a small player in the camera market, but their engineers pull things like the best ...
  • This is how I tend to see it also. Hence my feeling that Ricoh should look for a way to get a start in mirrorless. Chris
  • Replied in Really, Chris?
    Alex, I would say: beware not to get caught up in the flames. As I have said, I was taken by surprise by the dominance of mirrorless cameras and lenses last september, and now see the same pattern ...
  • You are missing an important point as far as I can see, which is: did the 3 million people buying a dslr buy that camera because it was a dslr, or because it was a Canon camera? In other words, ...
  • There would not be that much difference using a lens like the new DA11-18* on a dslr, or on a mirrorless camera with properly designed adapter, but yes, Pentax would trail quite a bit in ...
