Old Cameras: 50/1.8 = good, $249 = great!
70-300/4.5-5.6 = good, $1199 = are you out of your minds?

70-300 seems a G lens, Sony (old Minolta)'s premium line. Better be good!

tassosDA: I don't know why we have here so much negativity, about a camera that is absolutely fantastic! A camera with features that, 10 years ago. we could have only dreamed off!! What's wrong, boys?? Did we get too much spoiled over time and now we demand breakthrough technology from every new camera every six months?? If the minor (!!??!!) upgrades of the D500 don't suit you, then don't upgrade!! If you belive that dslr's are dead than go get yourself a mirror less!! If you think that a cell phone can take better pictures than a CSC than, by all means, stick to your cell phone!! But please stop been a cry baby!! P.S: I'm not a Nikon shooter!!

I am sure D500 is fantastic, but it is more expensive than Pentax full frame camera, which is also fantastic if not better. Not to mention other choices. Nikon DX lens choices are quite poor, while there are pro bodies, no pro lenses really. The problem is Nikon are losing their customers.

Nikon created DL just to stay away from coolpix, their last coolpix high end camera A didn't sell well.

tom1234567: Well in my opinion the K1 ilooks like a GREAT camera and look forward to the reviews I have had to K3 cameras in past 18mths I had problems with one with the mirror flapping etc etc ,But I still say they are a workhorse of a camera.

I now have a Nikon D7200 another great camera I will sell it in a couple of months and get the D500 I prefere APS-C to full frame
A camera is only a tool to take photos/video etc etc

I wish Pentax every success with ther brilliant new K1 just not for me now
The D500 will be another great camera when it comes out

Why all the bias against Pentax also what a great price for a FF camera
The D500 is more expensive .
Again well done Pentax

'I see a lot of bias from different directions'

'Why all the bias against Pentax '

99% of this bias comes from one member here, who should at least have the decency to stop all the nonsense.

HBowman: If I were Pentax/Ricoh marketing manager I would dance actually, like a successful rocket launch. Even if ppl start to fight now in the comments, it's been a long time I seen such love and kind words for a brand.

This is a very good sign.

Can't wait to see ppl starting to use it with legendary lenses.

Jorge, I was being sarcastic you know. No hard feelings I hope. :)

success in terms of the reception of the current Pentax users. This camera is not a direct threat to any big players. Rather it targets a niche market, which is very inferior to meet your needs obviously.

Few years ago, a member here says that he bought a Pentax DSLR camera, which was good enough for his needs, as he wouldn't want to see a market dominated by two companies only (duopoly).

Competition is good, some snobs here certainly get a bit funny with Pentax's first brilliant FF debut. Get a life and take some pictures :)

Gesture: Glad I waited before investing in full frame. Pentax is for traditionalists-and I mean that as a compliment.

Pentax users are also the nicest bunch and I mean that as a compliment :)

On article Ultra-compact: Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review (550 comments in total)

Is it correct to suggest that the EVF could be fixed. The current design is smart, but potentially prone to dust etc.
I wish Sony could use Contax T cameras' Zeiss Sonnar design, truly compact and excellent.

They abandoned their entry-level market? They now should change the name from GoPro to Pro then.

Rising costs of raw materials? Perhaps, lack of competition to be more accurate.
