Tequila MockingjayBird: What happened here?

With the Pentax K-1 pixel-shift RAW files, this is easy to fix in post: just layer with the first file of the PS series. Can you do the same with Sony?

K1 user says: "Aaah, so NOW you see the light!"

Looking forward to good pixel-shift suppport frrom the leading RAW developers, as working with the Pentax software is... ehm... rather tedious.

But i don't see any algorithms for detecting and correcting subject motion, did i miss something?

Finally, both lenses are very much needed in the lineups! Particularly the wide star APS-C zoom. I certainly hope Pentax sticks to the dates, they have a bad habit to push things back, again and again... Personally i'm interested in the 50: gotta have at least FIVE normal primes to be officially a member of the club, right? ;)

TMHKR: That silver color on the K1 - is it high quality coating, or the silver "paint" we usually find on cheap electronics, which wipes off after a year or so?

I have a Silver Edition K5. The paont has shown no signs of wear after 5-6 years and almost 100K clicks. Looks good with the silver ltd's! Less good with the grip imho.

Except for the Pentax 645Z, which got a score of 101. Of course DXO never published that... but there are screenshots!

miles green: Just add the Pentax K-1 in pixel-shift mode... Resolution is better, DR and colors are better, and there is no moire. It's (still) a landscape beast!!!

Bossa, that's without Pixel-Shift.
Vince, PS is a lot more than in-camera blending. The procedure has seen several improvements regarding slight subject movement. You can also process the RAWs selectively if you wish.

matthew saville: When will we see the opposite trend from these passing fad, cat/flower/baby/model lenses?

I want a super-sharp, ultra-wide lens with a 5-blade, un-rounded aperture which creates gorgeous sunstars. Bokeh be damned.

Pentax-M 20mm f/4?
OK, not super-sharp, especially in the corners, but it's a darn good lens and is small enough to always be in my bag.

technotic: So is it a record?

No. I have a Pentacon 135mm f/2.8 which is about 40-50 years old and has more blades....

On article Report: Ricoh announcing cost cuts in face of crisis (326 comments in total)

I hope Ricoh manages to remain profitable in this difficult market, keeping all of their brands alive with healthy products. For better or for worse, electronic equipment has become less and less servicable. The new business model is: 1. buy, 2. insure, 3. replace with new. That includes printers, phones, cameras and TVs... Ricoh has to adapt, just like everybody else.

So they're actually charging for the right to take pictures, not forbidding it. Some think of ways to charge for anything and everything?

Seriously!?
No mention of the Pentax HD 21mm f/3.2 limited!? It's such a wonderful walk-around lens for the Pentax aps-c cameras. There aren't many high-quality pancake wide lenses out there.. The Pentax limiteds are hard to miss, and they have an ENTIRE LINE of compact high-quality primes for aps-c: 15, 21, 20-40, 35 macro, 40, 40xs, 70...

And the Ricoh GR fits in a pocket so easily...

So.... is the sensor bigger than on other cameras? How about the lens?

In reply to:

raminm: I come here to read news about photography and camera industry and also receive valuable and useful feedback from other members who have something useful to teach their audience. I am tired of all those who complain why DPR publishes articles about certain brand or cameras they don't like. Frankly, I find DPReview is too tolerant of these group of people because they are abusive and distract those with helpful comments and remarks to write in the 'Comments' section. They have ruined the who atmosphere into trash talk.
To DPR: could you please install a moderator in the comments section to make sure only those people who are geniunely interested in the product are allowsed to comment on it. Can you please ban those who complain why an article is just published from making any comments on the article itself. If they are unhappy, they can simply send a private message to DPR and make their complaints. We, the rest are here to learn not to be disturbed by all the the nonsense.

I agree, but what do i do with the popcorn?
After all, clicks pay... For constructive reading, just read the article and skip the comments.
