A very unfortunate event for an underdog in a shrinking market.
I thought the writing of the review was slightly on the harsh side, the overall tone remains after the corrections, which is also unfortunate.

Leica cameras are close, except its pricing and manual focusing.

Sony is more likely to offer something like what Richard described.

chopsteeks: I will still buy Pentax K1 Mark II. Why ? I love underdogs !! If some of these folks are correct in their prediction that Pentax will soon be going ne....heck I got a collector's item DSLR !! Hehe

More importantly, these results are more important to 'pixel peepers'. High ISO ? I ain't in the same lane as folks who really use this feature.

People who like underdogs are cool guys.

A mistake like this for a small player can be lethal. Without commitment and investment, Ricoh is killing Pentax (or its own digital camera section).

It takes great humanity not to take photos of that grieving family.
I do hope more photographers would agree with him on this.

KyleSlamchez: I own both a ZINK dye sublimation printer (the HP Sprocket) and a Fuji Instax printer.

I far prefer the Instax prints, as they are on actual film and are far more clear, vibrant, and durable. However, the film is a bit more expensive than ZINK paper.

A question, do the instax prints fade over time? Thanks.

LadislavCZ: Why some people have to behave like being in some kind of brand cult. This place here was much more peaceful in past, people having more respect to each other and conversations being more mature.

The cameras are more complex now days with full of programmable electronics(small computers running inside) and there is no company who can oversee everything from start. We could seen this with Apple, Samsung, Nikon, Canon, Fuji and this is not last time it will happen to any brand. There is no need to finger point that this or that company is bad because some issue pop-up. Sony has fixed the issue and provide customer support via firmware.

Canon had many issues in past (like this one for example https://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2013/06/18/pros-take-note-canon-has-recalled-some-eos-1d-x-eos-1d-c-digital-slrs), Nikon, had the oil sensor issue, Fuji XH-1 is having AF issues (no firmware fix yet).Every brand has its issues with cameras.

It could be good to have more mature conversations

It is probably not brand cult, more of trolling. When a site doesn't control it, the credibility of the site suffers in a long run.

They were there in CP+.were there?

Be patient, it is coming soon.

50% market share of the entire interchangeable-lens camera market (by any company) is not really good news for the industry.

Thoughts: Hopefully, Rich/Pentax will slowly update their 31-43-77 Limited lenses too. They are truly special. Then the system will be even more exciting.

I have 43mm on a Sony A7 as a manual lens. Love it.

rondom: Hi Carey, while there, did you ask them about their parent company’s camera business? If not, would you please stop by once again and pose the question? Thank you.

DPR is having a formal meeting with Ricoh while they are in Japan this time.

Talking about marketing, Ricoh should really do some sponsored coverage on site as DPR?

Of course it is a lens cap :P

The decline is inevitable. Digital cameras on portable gargets will get even better. The old business model for makers such as Canon and Nikon will see its end soon.

hlritter: Still no sign of the glaring lack in the lens lineup, an interchangeable version of the Zeiss 35/2 prime lens of the RX-1 that would make the a7 an excellent and convenient carry-around. The available primes and zooms are notably bulky and heavy.

Why not, get a TAP adapter to autofocus all these manual lenses

Zeiss Loxia 35mm f2 is nice.

It is over 4 years since Sony launched its full frame mirrorless. The very original A7 is still not discontinued, if you wish to buy new, a sign that it is still doing okay? which then is quite an achievement in its own right.

This latest 'basic model' is quite a beast though.
