Gesture: Interesting, the Mac installer is only 70MB???
But if the Linux versions work, that might be fun.

I see that. Mac and Linux are full installers by comparison, it seems.

I installed the Mac version and the application is 162 MB.

Donnie G: High IQ, lightweight, compact size, easy to use without the need for any additional accessaries, cheap to own, and most importantly, fun for photographers of all skill levels to use, carry, and experiment with. People who have never considered buying an EOS M body will buy one now just to be able to use this lens with it. This is how you sell interchangeable lens cameras. Watch the sales figures and learn from the master. :))

The EOS-M is a lifestyle camera, not aimed at commercial photographers or the Smithsonian Institution.

Howard: It's a good idea. Too bad it is for the EOS-M system and the focal length is too short. A 100mm or even 50mm for the DSLR would be nice.

Exactly. Great lifestyle camera. I'd rather have a more general purpose lens like this.

And the price is actually reasonable!

The real challenge. Don't rush the production. Make sure quality is as good as possible. Pentax doesn't want an "issue." I think they understand that.

DPReview will have to invent a Platinum Award.

CaMeRa QuEsT: Hope all this and the K-1's selling numbers are compelling reasons enough for Sigma to port all their ART lenses to K mount, that on itself will be a real boost for K-1 sales, at least that will convince me to get a K-1.

Exactly. Pentax and Sigma should formally partner. But pride ... K-1 needs a distinguished, "signagture" lens series.

Gesture: Slides don't make sense?

But one nice thing. I can buy 3 Pentax K-1s for the cost of a Canon EOS01D X Mark II and have money left over for a lens.

Good points. But it's a shame photography has become like that. Take a thousand shots and pick the 3 good ones. Interesting, back in the film days, pros would say, we don't need autoexposure, autowind, autofocus, etc., but eagerly be the first adopters.

Actually, I thought folks would say the value of the Canon is the lens inventory and professional support network.

Gear in this story. Why not post links to Photoshop and computers?

Wonder what happened to the GearShop?

Gesture: What do loyal D300/s owners think of this upgrade. I can only go by what I see on screen. But the D300 always impressed me with its continuous tonality. Was I deceived or was the D300/s one of Nikon's finest achievements. Thanks.

Sometimes the undefinable is still understandable, as some posters have.

In reply to:

James Benet: The K1 Pixel Shift mode is a game changer for landscape and studio imaging in a controlled environment. The modest increase in resolution mentioned is more than that, the quality is as if you had a Foveon FF sensor with 4:4:4 quality.

The camera is great in normal mode as well, this is the Pentax camera that really brings the best image quality possible before jumping to Medium Format. Although pixel shift is MF like in it;s quality. It is a bargain and a must buy for Pentax enthusiasts.

Cons: Wish it had 4k video besides timelapse mode.

And being brought in at an attractive price!

Great notes. So few have tried to expand the sensor array (Fuji, Foveon). Reminds of film days, the mixed size grains of conventional films and the "every grain is exactly alike" T-Max films.

Please-a more real-world testing scheme-that has some artistic quality.
