cbphoto123: So many people here avoiding the elephant in the room: currently Sony's flagship "pro sports" camera does NOT have fast long lenses. To translate.. in it's current form is NOT a viable "pro sports" camera system. Is NOT a D5 or DXII "killer".

It is a chicken and egg problem, would Sony launch a pro fast long lens first?

DominicVII: Nothing to worry about: Pentax will be sold on, maybe to Samsung, maybe to Panasonic, maybe to LG, or maybe to some Chinese outfit. Pentax have been through this before. The Pentax brand is as versatile as the cockroach; it shall survive nuclear conflagration. Just keep on shooting and pay no heed to the bad news.

Oh ok, just appear you really hate this corporation, shame about your experience. We all lose when the market is dominated two or three companies, so sometimes being more forgiving and supportive of those small players, wishing them well, may be the way forward? No offence or lecturing here.

DPP, going through your comments here, it is surprising you haven't been banned all together. Do you really care about Pentax?

morepix: Goodbye, GR III. Too very, very bad. There's nothing like the GR.

Don't write it off just yet.

chetan crasta: Am I the only one who thinks that the camera industry has stagnated? There is a distinct lack of creativity.
In these Throwback Thursdays I've seen some very innovative designs such as the Olympus and Minolta cameras. This Sony camera seems to have had a decent touchscreen.
Fast forward 12 years and few cameras have a touchscreen and we rarely see innovative body designs.

Of course it has since people bought into the idea a cheap DSLR with a kit lens was the way forward till smartphones came along.

It would be an ultimate travel camera if Ricoh make a rugged GR.

I had this dream when I was in Andes this year and it rained every noon even though it was during the dry season.

inlawbiker: Some years back I found a used one for $100 and I bought it based on the old DPR review I dug up. Once I got a look at the photos my eyes about popped out. The camera lived in my glove box for a couple years after that.

blame the sensor :)

Thoughts: Should try black and white photos, which maybe this lens is designed for.

would it be a bit cheeky to upload it back to the gallery after the processing?

Tieu Ngao: The X-T20 is a bargain considering that it's only $100 more than the X-T10, and $500 cheaper than the Sony a6500.
Nikon, where are you???

I would compare it to Sony a6300 though as neither have IBIS, but I would probably pick this Fuji camera.

I have used both Nikon dslr and their coolpix camera, coolpix one was almost designed by a different camera company, in a bad way.

In reply to:

Angrymagpie: Apparently these three lenses will be priced in the $1000-1300 range.
I don't get this.. why would anyone spend $1000 on the e-mount 35/1.4 when they can adapt an M-mount version, which costs like $600?

if this pricing is true, it is more expensive than Zeiss Loxia price range, time will tell if they are that good.
