In reply to:

johnschafer: I'm sorry, but I'm at the point where I'm done with DPR's very obvious Nikon bias. I really don't want to start a negative rant here. But come on, honestly, I must protest. DPR admits in a separate article of the D5's lowest base ISO dynamic range of any current FF Nikon DSLR. Further, look at FStoppers review of the D5. It is very clear to see the D5 hits its useful limit at ISO25600. Here at DPR if this was a Canon-equivalent pro DSLR, it would be demoted to Silver award. Further, DPR hasn't reviewed a Canon 1D-series in 6 years. Nikon D5 is a Silver award, nothing more.

Spot on.

RedFox88: 23mp on a tiny phone sensor? LOL!

...that's just downsizing the image so you can't see how noisy the image. Pixel binding is just a marketing term to make it sound better, like progressive scan or piezo printing.

Michael Ma: All ~20 Sandisk microSD and CF cards have always performed to perfection and still work today. All ~8 western digital harddisks I've ever purchased, all have failed within a year of purchase or just out of warranty. Am I the luckiest and the unluckiest guy in the universe?

You are just unlucky. In 20 years of hard drives had only one start to go bad and it was 6 years old.

In reply to:

Mordi: I don't understand the praise for this camera if the photo of the young woman with a pole on her shoulder is an example of what it can do at ISO 100. Looking at it on my ASUS HDMI monitor, it doesn't come close to a MFT or any of the first-generation NEX models.

And surely, not close to the many 16x24 prints on my wall from my D300 and D7000.

Who prints anymore? Phones and tablets are better than prints.

tecnoworld: HAHA, 91%. NX1 came 2 years ago, with faster burst, 40% more MP, BSI sensor, much better video and scored 87%.

Oh, yes, it was just a Samsung.

Think about it..based on dpr's rating systems new cams HAVE to get higher point ratings to show they are better than the previous cam!

bgbs: D500 should outsell D5, 500 to 5.

Cameras sell by price. Lower prices models sell a lot more than expensive ones. They will sell more d3300s than d500s.

Mark Banas: Meh. I don't see this VR thing getting traction any time soon...
;-)

Agree. VR is a bigger joke than samsung's "curved" TVs.

tokyojerry: The dawn of the VR era. Looking forward to this exciting era! will have more traction then 3D TVs tried to pull off a few years back.

I have a 3D TV and it's great. The problem with VR is you can't be in a "VR" world without wanting to move. It'll just be like Google Street View: have to click to move forward and just spinning in a circle.

Daniel L: Next time try shooting wide open for a change, you are not inches away from the subject. Don't be shy.

Isn't the point is to see accurate the camera focusing is? why shooting everything at F5.6 on a 70-200mm? Forgot how to use aperture?

Since when is pro photography or action pics required to shoot wide open? That's more of a dpr measurebator/gear head fetish.

Couscousdelight: Now, please Ricoh, could you put a 1 inch sensor and a EVF in a Q ?
Instant buy for me...

The Q not a dead product yet? The V/J cams are dead from nikon.

Silat Shooter: As a former Pentax 67 user, I have a soft spot for Pentax. So really happy to see them with this winner! Very, very tempted to pick one up, only thing keeping me is my heavy investment in Canon mount glass. Wish the Sigma Art lenses were weather sealed, would love a 24, 35, 50, 85 set-up of weather sealed lenses to go with this body and just go shoot regardless of weather conditions.

Haven't handled one yet, no local dealers carry Pentax. So have to rely on sites like this and YouTube. Other than the investment in new glass to accommodate this camera, want to see how quickly, easily it is to change the focus points within the frame. I've become spoiled by a few current cameras I have that do that well. So it's a feature I now look for in any camera moving forward.

Loving this camera the more I read!

It's Ricoh now. pentax is just a name now.

matthew saville: It's reasons like this that I'm enjoying third-party brands and, basically, anything OTHER than Nikon or Canon.

Between Sigma and Rokinon, (and the new Tamron-inspired Pentax trio of 2.8 zooms) ...I think Pentax is now a DSLR system that really ought to be giving both Canon and Nikon semi-pro flagships a real spanking. Too bad consumerism is an addiction, and Canikon are the drug of choice these days.

That makes no sense. Canon isn't making lenses that have contact issues with their slrs.

sportyaccordy: Lol @ putting up a pic of a crop only lens for a fix for Pentax first and only FF DSLR. You guys have a funny sense of humor

Dude, the lens shown is on the affected lens list for the k1.
