On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1905 comments in total)

When they say DSLR/mirrorless camera market is saturated, what need to be done is overlapping it. Sony did it again. They set the bar higher, and we can`t see the limit up there.

phoenix15: And Ricoh is sleep tight.

Ricoh need to deliver, not only promising lenses on the roadmap. It is not very good for the their loyal costumers. If they don't release any new lenses this year, I don't know what might happen.

Come on Ricoh, show what you are capable of. Make your Pentax 645 system fame. The challenge is there, and you need to respond.

On article Ming Thein joins Hasselblad as Chief of Strategy (346 comments in total)

I was frequent reader of his blog, that was when he could review many gears. But since he join HB, I rarely visit his blog again. Not really big fan of his photograpy style actually, but his insight is really good.

In reply to:

phoenix15: I wonder what is lenses used for studio test ? it looks not very sharp, and tend to be purple fringing at high iso.

Yes I see that too. No problem for RAW, but compared it to D500 or Fuji XT20, still they are sharper. I wonder if it related to the lens being used, or setting.
And one more, the color profile from Pentax is much similar to the Sony A6300 or A6500.

wed7: Will this KP + Limited pancake lenses a better buy vs Fujfilm X-T20 + XF primes?
Camera to be used for AF-S shooting and for personal/travel/general photography.

If you shot JPEG maybe Fujifilm comes in handy for you. But if you shot RAW and willing to process your image, I think pentax KP gives better image quality.

Nick Brundle - Photography: Buy a Nikon D750 for almost the same price and you've got just about the best all round camera for the same money

@Richard where are you looking at ? Pentax KP is only 112.000 Yen in Kakaku.

It is not dedicated for sport and action, but of course it can.

Zoom Zoom Zoom: My SUPER IMPARTIAL 2 cents:

I have a Pentax 645z and also a Sony a7RII. A few days ago I was fortunate to be able to play with a Fuji for a few minutes. From my brief encounter, I can say the IQ of the 645z and Fiji are just about the same. One has to be extremely optimistic and press really hard to see any discernible differences. However, being mirrorless, the Fuji feels light years ahead in speed and usability. And when compared to the a7RII, I would say is a close call.. IQ is similar, noise is similar, resolution difference is almost imperceptible and mostly dictated by the glass used. The 2 real main differences are the handling and "look". Larger sensors always have a more "open" and true-to-life look when compared to smaller senses that need an equivalently wider lens for the same field of view..

I doubt that you have 645Z, unless you show me your portfolio. I read somewhere else, Fuji GFX is slow.

The sensor from Sony A7RII is very desirable for fullframe platform. I wish Pentax can access this one from Sony.
Nonetheless, I see this article is legitimate to non-pro photographers who aspire image quality with "limited" budget, then fullframe is still the most sensible investment. Better spend the money for trip and travelling.

Edgar_in_Indy: It's nice to see how excited you are for the GFX 50s, but it only makes your lack of curiosity about the Pentax 645D/645Z cameras even harder to understand.

It's been 7 years since Pentax broke the mold by announcing an affordable medium format digital camera in the 645D, and three years since the 645Z was announced, and we still have yet to see a review from DPR.

Never mind, doesn't really matter also. Pentax 645Z is for real photographer, and anyone who is interested with review can find elsewhere. Actually there are many many real photographers who review 645Z, and I think DPR is determined to review consumer products. No time for 645Z, period.

It is free promotion for Canon. Anyway, very nice interview, revealing something I didn:t know before.

cosinaphile: i wish they would support pentax

@Ozturt : sadly true, Pentax is slow when it comes to providing lenses for their system with modern optic and silent motor. They promised this year will come 5 primes, we will see. It is very hard for Pentax to maintain many systems (APS-C, FF, MF) , and it seems it cause slow development.
