On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (651 comments in total)

gskolenda: I would like to see all the newer Camera platforms that are plus 30 MP, have USB 3.0 instead of USB 2.0 These files are large and take time to move them.

It's not like USB 3.0 is new.

Who is using the camera's USB port to transfer files, seriously ? I own DSLR's for 8 years now and I have used the camera's USB port like 5 times ever.

guyfawkes: How often do we find that the small players show the big guys how to do it?

The spec looks extremely interesting and if it competes in the IQ stakes, it looks like Pentax could have a winner on its hands. I'm not in the market for a dslr in any shape or form, but if I was, the Pentax could be up there with the rest of them. I have no Pentax prejudices.

Just wait for the reviews before getting really enthusiastic.

DukeCC: Love the pressure on Canikon!
Go Pentax, Go Samsung, Go Sony!

Samsung dropped the camera business it seems, Pentax is a shadow of a former self and Sony is indeed putting some pressure.

The pressure comes from Sony, Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic rather than Pentax and Samsung.

Looking at the specs I realized that this is the 645Z in a 35 mm format.

Nuno Souto: Well done, Pentax/Ricoh. Good to see some REAL technical progress in the dslr field, instead of the usual Canikon shake-rinse-and-repeat.

I get it that it has all these interesting features but the only new thing about this is the handheld super res mode, all the other features already exist on various other cameras, some for years now.

It is my opinion that this is a nice camera, a 645Z miniature, I was just baffled by the "REAL technical progress" that someone was mentioning.

sportyaccordy: Jesus Christ. $1800? IBIS and weather sealing? Shame on you Canon! Shame on you Nikon!

Go and get one and you'll understand why Canon and Nikon charge as much as they do.

tinternaut: On the one hand, it's lovely, because it seems to do what Pentax does; puts the photographer first. OTOH, is this the Pentax equivalent of the Olympus E-5? A stop gap and an option for owners of older lenses?

That's simply not true. You have 40 year old Nikon Ais lenses outresolving modern sensors.

GinoSVK: Pentax can do a new 70-200mm F2.8 lens with reasonably good price, because not needs a image stabilizer.

Sorry Correction:
Pentax D FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW no have IS...

That's a Tamron, and so is the 24-70 and so is the 15-30.

BebuLamar: A very nice camera but please don't say that this is one of the camera the Df should have been. Nikon knew what people like me wanted and created a camera for us. We wouldn't want it otherwise.

The DF is larger than it should have been, this is thicker still, with a complicated screen. This is definitely not what the DF should have been, the A7R2 is what the DF should have been, but with a mirror instead.

bugsy46: Runs off to see if any Nikon price drops.........

Nikon is going thru tough times and is certainly not going to drop any prices because pentax released a camera. They aren't doing it because of Canon and Sony, so definitely not going to do it over a Pentax.

agaoo: Why not 4K? :-(

Pentax has never been at the top of the heap when it comes to video. It seems their tech and their SR are not top notch when it comes to video. I don't actually think they care that much for video.

What progress, the low price ? What's special about this camera ?

Or at least a Lunar one.

The DP3's image quality and practicality reminds me of the Kodak DCS Pro14n that I shot a good few years back.

I have watched Sigma DP reviews and I have seen a gallery of pictures taken with the products, so I'm far from being ignorant on the matter.

I think it's hilarious that you're comparing a 15 megapixel, fixed 75 mm lens compact camera that's slow to focus and is best used at base ISO, with VGA video resolution to a medium format camera like this Hasselblad.

It's mildly put if I say that the DP range has been unconvicing.

J A C S: Pretty bland for 50mp MF. The castle shot is a bit lacking in detail, sharpened or not. The horse shot is fine, not counting the blown highlights.

#10 has very pleasant colors.

The castle shot is very sharp in the sharpened version.

BobYIL: Canon 5DS R with 17, 24, 45 and 90mm TS-E lenses still cost a fraction of this 100MP back..

True but the stitching argument can be applied to the phase one camera as well.

And if we go and compare IQ of that canon 50mp sensor to the phase one ...
