nokinonacynos: Can't understand why they come out with this instead of a 135mm f/2 VR. This 105 is just a marketing gimmick to claim world's fastest 105.

Nokinonacynos, you are right, was also expecting a 135vr as Nikon has already a 85 f1.4 and a stabilized 105 mm. of course this maybe is aimed at "replacing " the mythical 105f2.5.... No way to have luminous wide angles for apsc ?? This is a shame, still waiting..... So do many I think, reason why many went to fuji

justmeMN: It's too bad that the Nikon DL24-85 isn't available. It would have been interesting to see a head-to-head comparison between the two cameras.

The Nikon will be a canon killer because Nikon lenses are way better on compact cameras, see the p7100 which has a fantastic lens...

Your final comment says : excellent image quality but when reading closely, I see this : smudgy jpeg and quality issues with the lens. How can you achieve good results then ?

Dave C 150: There isn't a camera out there that will meet everyone's requirements. Look at each camera's strengths and your budget and see if it is what you want. They will all do the rest at least adequately. So in this case if you want a camera that is say robust, a low price for the specs and excellent for landscapes to mention one as an example then this may be for you. If you specialise in wildlife, especially birds, you will probably have to pay more but will likely look at other makes. Conversely if you are into astro photography, especially on a budget, you would leap at a K1 in front of the others. Horses for courses, so don't shoot the messenger!

Thé problem is that there are a lot more capable cameras for that price...
Not suitable for everyone, come on, a camera should have a minimum of performance level.
I agree when DPR writes this body is for pentax users. Do you really think canon, nikon or Fuji and Sony users are going to buy a K1 because il is cheaper than a d810? No, of course.
Many things are to be considered : service you get, spare parts availability, Quick response if problems, Lens range (see here how few are compatible), lenses I need, etc
Why buy a little cheaper maybe if thé body does not meet basic requirements. Say : good for landscape, allright, don't you need autofocus for landscapes ? Is this an excuse ? No. Cheaper does not mean that it is a bargain, it just means cheaper !

caravan: So this is nearly double the money of the a6300 because it has two Sd slots ?

Maybe but Fuji lenses exist and they are better.
Tell me where to,find décent lenses for the 6300 ??
CAN I get from Sony a 23f1.4 ? A 35 F1.4, a 56 F1.2 ??? an excellent 10-24 ? Nô, no

Ashim Jain: Why do none of the prime lenses from Fujifilm have Optical Image Stabilization when the competition does? It would make those lenses even more suitable for low-light conditions obviating even more the need to move to full-frame cameras.

Oftentimes, I travel to remote villages and tribal areas in India where the poorest homes sometimes don't have electricity or operate on extremely low power bulbs where it's very dark inside.

Buy à camera with stab, like olympus which is thé best. For the price of the xt2, you can get omd em1 with 12 f2

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2613 comments in total)
In reply to:

pentaust: I can see a lot of offended replies following the review of Pentax K1 AF performance. On the one hand some Pentax users feel offended from the poor review given to Pentax K1 AF performance. And DPR feel offended when their methodology is questionned. Well, every AF servo module is designed to perform best for a set of use cases. For example, Pentax Single Point AFC tracking is not meant to be used for tracking a fast moving subject such as a bike or car or motorbike etc... Single point AFC is used in focus prio mode to focus on slow moving target, such as at weddings, so, if you (DPR) got poor AFC single point results on a bike, you did not use the proper mode that is planned by Ricoh engineers. If you used multipoint AFC tracking and selection focus priority instead of FPS priority, you'd already get a lot more keepers. And if you'd use focus preset, your keeper rate would increase even more.

À good camera is a camera you can use after à few minutes and not after reading for monthes a user's manual explaining to you in 400 pages how to,use your autofocus.

Will B Milner: Is it just me or my monitor, do the RAW files look quite soft?

Bad copy ? No, all tests show a huge weakness of thé lens at wide angle. Canon has kept - unfortunately - the same bad lens which is better at 100 mm. This is for me a mistake, this lens being used for more often at 24 mm !

HenriAntoine: This will be excellent for those who made the most of the legendary Mamiya 7 and 7ii, which is a 6x7 rangefinder camera, highly portable with the very best image quality in film MF. This will indeed be a game changer. It looks ideal for unobtrusive handheld documentary photography that aims for the highest image quality. That was - and still is - what the Mamiya 7 does best.

For that kind of photography, you need an olympus omd em1 or that kind of stuff . The H lenses are too slow, and are not stabilized.

This format makes sense only if you print wall size. Otherwise, FF is thé best ratio quality/ investment

kingslayer: $9000? lol. If this thing was priced around $3500, it would sell very well.

If à leica would cost the same price as a Sony , they would not sell anymore, I tell you !

In reply to:

Swordman: I think it's great, but I feel 50MP isn't enough. The next generation of 35mm sensors are rumoured to have around 80MP, and with a decent lens, the depth of field is shallow enough.

What this has over its current competitors is resolution and dynamic range. In a years time, that advantage will be gone, and you'll be down 9000 dollars.

Perfectly right. See the canon 5ds which gives less detail than some competitors with far less pixels......
Who ever needs - as non professional photographer - so many pixels ? unless you are printing huge posters, it is useless. Even 20 millions is well enough for 99 % !

In reply to:

villagranvicent: Excellent review, down-to-earth without the recent over the top claims and headlines, seems like a solid performer but at a hefty price. I would love to see a real life comparison vs the FZ1000 or even vs m43 systems considering the cost is in the same ball park to see if paying twice the money is worthy.

To my opinion, the fz1000 is a better option : it is much cheaper, AF is faster and Colors are better. See on the studio test on the color chart how yellows from both rx10 and rx10 III are dull. ThE panasonic yellow is à bit too yellowish, thé canon has the better rendering. But with the sonys, every color seems "washed" , I had a sony rx10 and even with enhanced Colors settings I could not get right colors that looked like Fuji colors when the sun dos not shine. i sold it to buy the fz1000

Advent1sam: Fuji x, 16mm f1.4, outstanding lens, f2 equiv and weighs the same!

And of course, you CAN use the Fuji 16 mm on your panasonic body ? no, ok, then why speak about Fuji , what does this havé to do here ?
If I need a 12 F1.4 I will buy it because it here is no alternative. That's all.

Thé studio scenes show much better results with the olympus em10 : pictures are sharper. Do you use thé same lens for both bodies, if not, thé results are not reliable, how could they ?

"specially developped for,people who like photography", well I guess people who do not like photography will not even buy a camera.... Pure marketing !

The point is : is F1.2 usable ? I wonder.

In reply to:

dansclic: Who cares about this ? People paying more than 6000 dollars are not buying sigma lenses I guess ? I wouldn't anyway. Professional photographers do not want to create problems for themselves, So better stick to genuine lenses that will never cause any problem.

You have missed the point . Happy to know many people are using third party lenses . The point is : like Edward tells here, there will be more and more problems of compatibility . Il there is à problem with a canon body equipped with a sigma lens, who are you going to send your stuff to ? Canon ? Sigma ?
Do you think reasonable people do.have Time to waste dealing with such problems ? No. they don't. I don't take that risk. i,CAN understand people havé another opinion which apparently is not your case.
