I love that site. I've compared many images there & have looked at how large I can print with certain camera models. It came in handy at times 'cause I do print quite often. I guess we'll see what the future holds.

"Leaked" photos, huh? Hahaha!

I'm excited to see some pictures of this camera. Hopefully they did a major AF revamp.

This is hands down my favorite RAW converter. Yes. It has a very steep learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, everything suddenly becomes insanely easy. You can batch edit, batch a set, automate RawTherapee to use your own settings for different kinds of photos without you doing anything, & lots of other neat features in it. Once you automate it, it's as simple as selecting all RAW files, right click, reset to default, put to queue, & watch RawTherapee do all the work for you. Extract the dcp files from the Adobe DNG Converter & get images that look very close to the OOC jpegs, but with more detail & color. Good stuff! (^o^ ) <3

The AF performance in these recent APS-C cameras is amazing, but the cameras still seem like they're made in a way to try to get you to move up to a Sony FF camera. I'm still not feeling their APS-C range overall, but like I said, the AF performance is still quite impressive.

felix from the suburbs: As a long time Sony A mount user I can sympathize. Kind of in the same boat as third party manufacturers stop making lenses for the A mount while some of my diehard A mount colleagues insist that the A mount is not fading away. I guess in a shrinking DSLR market, larger companies have limited interest in devoting resources to product lines with small market shares. As an aside, a while back I came across an old copy of Popular Photography magazine while cleaning out my basement. It is quite sad to see all of the ads for companies and products that were mainstream and no longer exist. I always thought Pentax made some cool looking cameras back in the day and I hope they survive.

@Class A I'm dead set on not making a single move until that Pentax APS-C flagship comes out. I'll know by then if I keep spending my money on Pentax or I move along to another manufacturer.

I was a former A-mount shooter with an a200 DSLR. I was going to replace it with an a77II, but in the end I decided to give Pentax a try, especially since it looked like Sony was about to put all their eggs into the E-mount basket. I really liked that little a200, but it was near the end of its life. The K-50 that replaced it felt very similar to the a200. Now more than 5 years later, I'm finding myself in a similar situation with Pentax as I sit here waiting for their next top end APS-C camera. As for now, I'm going to wait to see what happens. Sigma has some nice lenses, but none of their current nice lenses have made it to the K-mount, so it doesn't matter to me that they've left. I usually prefer getting original lenses from the camera manufacturer all the time if possible, so no big deal.

xmeda: So now Ricoh can finally get rid of FF plans and focus back on APS-C that used to work well for Pentax, but was neglected for last 7-8 years resulting in current situation.

I'm still waiting for that K-3II replacement.

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-G95/G90 Review (669 comments in total)

This is a very nice mid-range camera, but the price, extreme 4k crop, & the fact that you can't get the body alone in the USA kind of breaks it. Not to mention that the slightly older G85 is dirt cheap at the moment & the G9 is selling for almost the same price as the G95 too. They're going to have a very hard time moving these.

I don't plan on buying one, but this is a very impressive camera. Lots of great things are happening in the camera industry.

Torben Pedersen: Hi

Instead of upgrade an old lens whit new coating, they should release free repair of the aperture problem that have occurred to so many K-30 and K-50 cameras. Mine K-50 have only taken 1900 clicks and, started to make dark photos. It’s a shame, that Richo/Pentax not have granted a free repair. I have been a fan of Pentax since 1980, but now, I hate them, and will newer buy cameras from them anymore. I hope that Richo Corporation is reading this.

Best regards,

I had to fix my 2 K-50 bodies on my own by replacing the "green" solenoids with "white" solenoids. They cost about $40 USA each. Sucks, but at least they've been trouble free since.

I have been eying the DA 10-17mm lens for a long while, but haven't bought it. Still waiting on that K-3II replacement camera to determine if I spend more money on Pentax or spend my money elsewhere.

They should have used the word "few" instead of "some". I guess we'll see what happens during the next couple of years. :P

On article Sony a6400 review (1239 comments in total)

I like the way the review was laid out & the section where it gives you possible shooting scenarios with pros & cons. I don't plan on getting an a6400, but the review will definitely help those that are on the fence about getting one.

Sony is really taking a major leap forward in AF technology. This looks even more impressive than the 3D tracking I use in the Nikon D7200. It's only going to get better with each future camera release. I'm definitely keeping an eye on Sony. I do wonder what their supposed upcoming APS-C E-mount "flagship" camera will bring. Hmmmm....... ('_' ) ??
