Yossarian1: Nice shots. Looks like DR is pretty good. Like the shirt as a moiré test – would be interesting to see how non AA filter cameras (for example, D810, 5DSR) handled that shirt.

Back at photographing fabrics again, Yossarian? Non AA filter cameras will most likely show moire at some point but have superior detail in 90% of the shooting situations. That's just my own experience. You can easily fix moire in post but not add detail. Anyway, enjoy.

Roadrunnerdeluxe: For a camera over $3000 the dynamic range is complete s**t, despite the "dramatic improvements".

madeinlisboa: Ahah! Even my D7200 has less noise.

If you are a professional fabric photographer, moiré might be a problem.

Looks like an amazing picture taker! Some beautiful photos in the gallery! High ISO performance looks amazing (ISO 32000). IS 30MPX the new 24MPX for full frame?

Roadrunnerdeluxe: I really don't care about the AF rating, that's fine by me. I rarely have to chase buildings or landscapes.

What irks me though is the paradox pixel shift criticism. As far as I know no other camera (besides Oly in a different implementation) has this feature. Everybody pi**es their pants over the picture quality one gets from pixel shift (yes, with application limitations, point taken).

It's almost like somebody builds the first car with an additional fuel cell at 2/3 of the price of a regular car just to get knocked that it can only use hydrogen.

@Chris M Williams
@Richard Butler

I really appreciate your input and isnight, guys!
I rest my case. My own interpretation of the 'cons' was probably more weighted than what you guys intended.

Thanks for responding, Chris.

I suppose our viewpoints are different. I see pixel shift as a bonus, an extension of the regular capabilities of the camera that even within its limitations can do things way beyond the natural potential of that sensor in certain circumstances.
Thus I would have counted is a pro only. If it was a completely gimmicky tool that drags down the overall usability of the camera, that would have been a different story.

Either way, thanks for all the work you guys put into this and all the other reviews!

@fatdeeman

It is an added bonus, it doesn't hold back any other function or quality of the camera. There is no downside to having it, none, only upsides for when you CAN use it. It doesn't cost more. Quite the opposite.
It is innovative. Other manufacturers will most likely follow with their own implementation now that it has been done. It is groundbreaking. It's a first.
Instead of having a it-all-must-work-flawlessly-for-me entitlement mentality, there should have been major points given for the innovation and new possibilities it allows instead of knocking its limitations.

Where can I get one of them chocolate teapots?

Roadrunnerdeluxe: I think it's amazing what Pentax pulled off here! Even more so when considering this camera started as a grass roots effort by Pentax engineers.
Silver award and an 84% rating! Congratulations Pentax!

Now on to the K-1 MKII.

Smart move on your part! I can't wait for it. Hopefully within the next three months or so. More lenses will be the next step.

malabito: There it goes :) where is the pentax lovers saying auto focus was as good as in Nikon and canon? Yes let's trust the outliers saying that auto focus is awesome, when most of the reviews say the contrary :)

I'm glad you feel confirmed. I for one, a Pentax user, am well aware that AF is nothing like Nikon's.

Roadrunnerdeluxe: You know, some people are happy to pay the premium not having to use a mainstream product. I myself find it appealing to have a handmade, purpose-built, high-quality product as opposed to mass produced one-size-fits-all product that caters to as many buyers as possible.
Not talking about bling here (their gold lens does fall into that category though).

Of course they are better and had I the money I'd go with Zeiss for sure. I wouldn't say though that either Zeiss or Voigtlander are mainstream either.
The Meyer-Optik is for people who would rather buy a hand-made, small-series sports car over let's say a Lamborghini or Ferrari. it's certainly not better and as refined but they can connect to it differently on an emotional level.
All I'm saying is that I could understand how somebody with the surplus cash would buy a lens like this.
