Seems that this lens has horrendous field curvature, from the sample picture here:

Well....the last time I heard Pentax delaying some stuff (Mysterious voice: FF camera), it was delayed a decade +....

I never understand why the top LCD screen is a good thing. I have used many many different models, and prefer looking at the settings in the rear LCD, isn't that a more convenient location???

I don't see the legendary Leica rendering here.
In fact, I've never seen it anywhere.

In reply to:

johnvanr: So, if I read the conclusion about image quality then what you're really saying is that it's a great 300-450mm lens and a good lens up to 600mm if you use it at f/7.1 or f/8 and beyond. So, it's a 300-450mm f/5-6.3 lens or a 150-600mm f/8 lens, right?

While this article presents that with a positive spin, which is fine considering it's a relatively cheap lens, what it really means is that it's not a lens you can use beyond 450mm wide open, which severely limits its usability in anything but great light (as I found out myself renting it to shoot eagles during the winter).

No, it's a 150-600mm F5.0-6.3 lens

Not sure if it promotes creativity or restraints it...apparently one can only put the subject dead center.

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: Exceptional colour rendition, nicely detailed even if a bit soft.

I wonder what mostly gives these beautiful colours, the body or the lens?

Anyway, a wonderful combo.

I also find the colours quite pleasant, how did DPR achieve that?

Colours from my A7 are not even crap, they are utter shi*t.

viking79: It always amazes me how complicated modern zoom lenses are, and that they work as well as they do. Beautiful.

It amazes me even more how people designed lenses before the invention of computers.

One word: I'm buying this lens.

qwertyasdf: I have said this many times, all mirrorless companies are doing something wrong...why are there no affordable ultra wide angles?!?!!?!

This is except Canon's 11-22mm, and it's also the reason the EOS M is my most used camera.
Fuji & Sony's options are too expensive & bulky. Olympus's 9-18 is expensive given it's quality.

Do they even know their target market? Travelers would adore a lightweight ultra wide setup.

Canon!!!

I never think that CSCs were "help compact camera users progress toward something more capable and flexible".

It's about removing the mirror box - that bulky, precision mechanical, production cost.

This DP0 should really be the first DP camera they sell
The DP series is sensational in landscape and miserable in other things
The DP1 was never wide enough....

Next, pls make the lens available for other mirrorless cameras.

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: In all seriousness, there's just one thing wrong with this camera:

It's a Samsung.

simply because people don't buy Samsung cameras....

I'm not trolling, I was an early adopter of NX cameras. They take great pictures, burst rate is exceptional, the menu system is a million times better than the old Sony NEX menu.
I ditched it because of the unnecessarily long flange back distance, making the camera stupidly thick.

Roman Korcek: Erm, what will this Tamron have that the award-winning and one third cheaper Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 does not have? Is it just about the image stabilization? Or those 3mm at the wide end? What am I missing?

Run for your life before the equivalency police catches you .__.
