NO WAY... hold the presses... we haven't heard from the sniveling Sony and Canon fanboys yet... but they'll be here fur sure... you can take that to the bank!... :D

Sorry Olympus... I'm NOT buying into your battery burning, tinker toy camera hype. Your noisey little pocket cams SUCK in low light, and you're STILL not producing fast, affordable lenses that compete with most of the DSLR market. Maybe you should examine your competition, and release a blockbuster DSLR camera with an impressive line of lenses that goes head to head with the best cams in the Canon/Nikon camps... kind of like what Pentax is attempting to accomplish... ;)

Definitely needs 'two way communication'. Assign 'chores' for pets to accomplish around the house while you're out. Chores completed... treats dispensed! Come on now... who rewards anyone (or anything) for doing nothing... :D

HEY GOPRO... you finally woke up and smelled the coffee with this low cost cam... too bad you didn't do this 3 years ago before you lost your azs and a mountain of market share. With features like 30 feet underwater... 2 inch touch screen... quality video that doesn't have to be 4K for (the editing hassles and) great results... as most everyone is shooting straight to YouTube and Vimeo anyway. Don't worry about putting out a camera at close to cost, as you'll take everyone to the cleaners with the assessory toys.
Kudos to you... hope you're not too late!... ;)

Love Nikon... but PLEASE Nikon... don't expect us to purchase a few of your 'wasted effort' lenses in some kind of silly-ass 'Christmas Wrapped' package deal. The only lens in that kit worth purchasing is the 85 F1.8. Some of your full-frame zooms (like the 16-35 NanoCoat F4 and 70-200 NanoCoat F4) are DEFINITELY better options!... ;)

Do the math boys... Google 'Sony Net Worth'... its 77 Billion... 'Samsung Net Worth'... its $216 Billion. Looks like Samsung could buy and sell Sony 3 times... LOL! The money talks while suckers walk... ;)

This is a classic move demonstrated by a company who is witnessing a mass existous of past paying clients (the rebel rebellion is starting to work Jedi's), now attempting to recover their loses by generating a price increase. Blood-sucking (dark side) Adobe is FAR from broke or bankrupcy, but they're starting to feel the pinch... ;)

How about putting a much more powerful receiving antenna and transmitter in the next Samsung that won't DROP CALLS and have hundreds of DEAD ZONES thru-out the areas where I live? I don't give a rat's patooti about 'twin lenses and HDR' in the camera when the freakin thing cant receive or transmit important calls when it's needed... :P

On article Pentax K-1 Mark II: What you need to know (460 comments in total)
In reply to:

ronniemac: GaryinSoCal: There is less 3rd party support for Pentax mount lenses than for Nikon, although there are quite a few available. A list of all current primes can be found here:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/gear-guides/current-k-mount-prime-lenses.html
and zooms here:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/gear-guides/current-k-mount-zoom-lenses.html

Check up the prices and you'll see that Pentax lenses are less expensive than Nikon lenses, although you are able to get Tamron lenses at less cost than the Pentax version.

Pentax recommend 10 of their current primes for the K-1 & 5 new D FA zooms covering 15mm to 450mm (the trinity are are F2.8).

But yes, we do want them to release more, especially the fast primes on their lens map, ultra wide angle, wide angle, standard, and portrait, and the sooner the better. Until then, I'm happy, not "SAD", to make do with what they offer plus a few of their legacy lenses.

Always best to check data prior to posting.

ronniemac Because the market is FLOODED with an abundance of quality Canon and Nikon lenses... produced at a ratio of easily over ONE HUNDRED TO ONE against Pentax... any photographer can go to places like the camera swapmeet (http://www.bargaincamerashows.com) and find literally THOUSANDS of refurbished and slightly used Canon and Nikon lenses available at discounted prices... at less than half the price of their Pentax counter-parts... while NEVER seeing a single Pentax lens available from ANY of those same vendors.

Always best to live in the real world prior to posting.

mandm: Did you know Pentax has an all WEATHER-RESISTANT Camera Lineup!
If you shoot outdoors in all weather conditions, you need a Pentax DSLR.
This is what Pentax Owners Expect and sets Pentax apart from all other brands.
What other brand has…
6 WR DSLR Bodies in 3 Formats.
13 WR Lenses, Plus 3 WR Lenses for 645Z.
2 WR Flash Units, Plus an LED constant light source for video.
3 WR Battery Grips.
Shooting you kids football game and it starts to rain heavy, Pentax owners don't care as parents with other brands put their cameras away and then ask you for photos.
FYI: I shoot Nikon, I have shot Pentax 35mm and 645 and 67 in my film days and 645 Digital.

If I was a fish... I'd buy one if those WR Pentax's in a heartbeat... BUT... I'd probably end up with lots of wave and bubble photos... and find myself battered in somebody's frying pan.

GarysInSoCal: SAD... a pretty remarkable camera... SERIOUSLY deficient lens selection... one of the primary reasons this camera will have a hard time selling. Oh they have a few decent lenses alright... but RIDICULOUSLY overpriced compared to their Nikon and Canon counterparts, who each have 3-4 times as many lenses options to choose from... at FAR MORE reasonable prices.

And the aftermarket lens makers will be pretty much NO WHERE to be found. They won't tool up to produce K-mount lenses cause THEY KNOW they will lose their aszes as that inventory will sit on the shelves... while they make profits hand over fist on Nikon and Canon mount lenses.

Do I shot with a Pentax?... buy a clue idiot... would I mention all it's shortcomings and then turn around and buy one... OR even own one?... LOL... and what 'fanboy' am I?... did I list what I shoot with?... LOL... not even... did people agree with my comment?... SEVERAL did... who's the ignoramus?... now we know... :D

In reply to:

CaPi: Its quite clear cut to me that this is a step into new territory.
I don’t think that there are many customers in that territory willing to switch to this system.
Personally, I have the lenses, the funds and am looking for s new stills camera body and don’t feel compelled to buy this.

CaPi... EXACTLY... as nice as this camera is... it's yet another offering by Fuji that will go DOWN IN FAMES in sales... a camera that has NO system... NO popular distribution... NO decent selection of lenses... and will VANISH into a black hole by 2019. This sensor is too small and it's buying customers will be too few. So heads up Fuji... you might as well sell all your patents and research and development staff to Nikon (you've used their lenses in the past), because their D850 is STEAMROLLING the market with billions of dollars of sales.

Link | Posted on Feb 19, 2018 at 12:04 UTC

That's a pretty screaming D850 recommendation coming from that Canon girl... shame every store on Planet Earth is SOLD OUT on the D850... :P

No intelligent camera shopper will purchase 3-5 thousand dollars in camera gear from Amazon. Porch theives are making a killing off of Amazon house deliveries.

Congrats Nikon on taking over the world of Full-Frame... NOW... come out with some new (fast) G-Series prime lenses (all F1.8's in the very usable range from 70-150mm) that make purchasing a D700/D3/D600/D610/D750/D810/D850 a good investment.

GarysInSoCal: NIKON... wake the fug up!... FIRE your research and development team for making a $12,000 lens that less than 1% of your camera owners will purchase... and make thousands of reasonably priced lenses that both Nikon camera users (and Sony camera users with adapters) will purchase. Want to alienate your camera buyers and turn your dwindeling fan base to other camera manufacturers?... keep doing what your doing and continue to lose your financial aszes.

Actually... I'm missing ALL those lenses... cause they haven't been made yet... NIKON... but THEY SHOULD BE. I'd buy at least 3 of them the minute they came out... :D

OK... I'll play your game... how about all these in (cost friendly) fast focus G-Series prime lenses... a 70mm F1.4... a 105mm F1.8... a 135mm F1.8... a 150mm F2.0... and a new 180mm F2.0 or F2.8. Nothing less than 70mm as the zooms have those wide angle ranges covered... ;)
