ybizzle: The 5 owners of these fine cameras will no doubt appreciate Ricoh's response!

@birdseed

How is it a cheap shot when my comment was a reflection of reality? Yes there are more than 5 owners, but in the overall picture, Pentax is just a drop in the bucket. Look at their market share and then comment.

Also, how did my comment discredit Pentax's contribution to photography? I never even spoke of the actual cameras, just that the user base was miniscule which it is.

On article Hasselblad X1D-50c First Impressions Review (316 comments in total)

X1D has little advantage over the Canon 5DS-R at ISO 100/200 but does have better noise performance at higher ISO settings. If I was mainly shooting low ISO, I would be tempted to just get the 5DS-R and save a good chunk.

Steppenw0lf: What makes this camera so special to earn a gold award ?
The price ? Many others have more advanced features and better optics, but get no gold awards ... (Pentax KP or K3)
What is the idea behind these awards ?

Shell out the cash like I did and see for yourself. This coming from a Leica guy. The camera is really that good!

Most people prefer shooting using the screens on their phones and have no clue what EVF or OVF even means.

You would have to be a complete n00b to buy this lens. Spend your money on a prime instead.

ybizzle: Panasonic CM1 would wipe the floor with this crap...

Still doesn't change the fact that a 3yr old phone has superior IQ to a new flagship.

And no one bought it because when it was released, it was too expensive, no carrier picked it up, and had poor marketing.

Ziv Kruger: Not having money to literally burn, and having stopped purchasing "fun" cameras that never leave the house, this "latest" offering is clearly not intended for me.

No video? In 2017? Unreliable framing and focusing? Isn't the point of attempting to capture an image actually capturing the image?

No built-in viewfinder, No articulation on the back screen, slow flash sync, unreliable white balance, questionable battery life, and oh yeah, you might need a lens. Again, you lost me at limited manual focus (with no actual focus points?)

Stack this camera against ANY $1,000.00 model on the current market, and it loses badly. There are of options @ $650.00 and below that would put this camera's images and handling to shame.

Is there really a point to a large sensor that captures out of focus difficult to frame images? No.

I rather enjoy the benefits of modern technology. Having worked as a professional when "Polaroid Backs" were the fastest way to preview an image with a client. :) ZK

No built in view finder? Yea it has one...Since the M3! How do you manage to miss this?

If you need video, this camera is not for you! Get the M240 or better yet, a Sony A7x/Panasonic GH for much less.

Articulating screen is just a matter of preference. Battery life is decent and so is the white balance. As for focus, it is quite simple and acurate. You just need time to practice as with anything else.

Show me a new camera at $1000 that is a range finder and I will buy it. This camera is not for you my friend. ;)

The letter M has never meant so much as it does for the Leica M line. It is iconic. It is pure photography. It is, the M!

@GabrielFFontes
It did not succeed because of cost and poor phone user experience.

ybizzle: Still waiting for the vaporware KODAK Super 8 Camera announced at CES 2016... ;)

Let's hope you're right. I'd like to try this out one day as I was just born when super 8 was first popular. Now in my 30's, I have found a love for film photography through my Leica cameras so this would be next on my to do list.
