Bring it to Pentax, or just rebrand it :)

phoenix15: I have never considered Fuji all this time, because the price were always ridiculously high. But this camera changed my mind. Good move Fuji.

@BBT:
What do you mean by obsolete ? It is using 24 Mpix, and it is more than enough.

This is what Pentax should really do. Long ago, Pentax can claim as the king of APS-C due to its various lenses. But now, the crown is taken by Fuji.

Wow great article, my favourite photograph is no 3.
Keep the good article like this. I still remember the old macro photography tutorial by Erez Marom, which had helped my skill generally, and I even acquire the macro lens for that.

Looking to those comparisons, making D500 is more tempting. And by the way is there any news regarding Nikon Df-2 using sensor in D5 ?

Sorry, he is very stup*d entering red zone without proper permit from local authority. If the radiation is still there at high dose, he should cover his body entirely. I don't understand what he was looking for ?

In reply to:

JacobSR: I think dpreview go overboard with their testing. Just say it's a nice camera, that's all.
Nothing is perfect, and not one camera can do everything. Not all are suitable to your method of testing. And not everybody uses the camera the way you do. I think you are working too hard.
Just tell us the different features with some photos, that's all. And, then there will be peace on Earth.

@Rishi your background as the scientist surely give you the mind set to reveal everything you found out during the test and you back it up with the proofs. That is good from that point of view. But DPR is not for scientist, there are many interest not only the objectivity that matters, but also to cater the big fans with their faith to the brand they love. Of course its irrational, but that is what it is.
You can say whatever you want to say in your own blog, but here in DPR I think you should be cafeful to say the weakness of each camera you are reviewing. Why ? Because not everyone can take it easily. Try to review Leica or Hassleblad, and then say "only stupid will buy this expensive stuff because Canikon, Sony, can do better". The value of the camera is not only mesured by number. I know you loves scientific test with all its "Quantitative measurement". Saying all cameras are good is good also, and that doesn't mean to request you not to do your job. Wording is very important.

In reply to:

ogl: If to compare K-1's AF with Nikon D5/D500 and Canon 1Dx - it's really worse
But is there any sense in such comparison? No.

Nikon 810 is very close to K-1's AF - it depends on lenses, of course.
Some of Pentaxians have the both cameras and found K-1+85/1.4 is even better than D810+85/1.4G.

@Rishi,
Do you consider the light ambience in your AF tracking performance's test ? I see the light during K-1 test is little bit dimmer than when you test Sony A7R II, and D500.
Of course I don't believe K-1 has already AF performance that can match D810. But, tbe testing methodology on AF performance should consider many variable coming from environment.

I was trying to say bluntly, and honest at best. You realize that DPR staffs have been making good effort to test K-1 at various situations. This takes time, and really we have to appreciate for the good services they give to us (pentaxians) for free. Your comment didn't help the K-1's review to be published sooner. I think it is good to wait a little longer, as we don't want to see shallow review for the complex DSLR such as K-1.

This is what was written if you are too lazy to read it: Our full review is almost wrapped up.... or you may be just too impatient.

Look like Pentax K-01. Marc Newson always ahead of his time, just like what he did with Ikepod. Now, what pentax is going to do ?

I don't know if this product is necessary to be released this year. Look, K-1 has been selling really good, and the stocks are small almost everywhere. Now with this K-70, can Ricoh really deliver the product on time ?
I would expect K-3II replacement with new AF module, and then the AF from K-3 could be inherited to K-70. But, looking at the price tag, I think I can't complain much. Definitely better than competitors.

Only if Lenovo let the motorola brand alive. Only moto is not enough.

Dude with a camera: Show me the lenses Pentax.....show me the lenses. I want to come back into the family.

Buy it now, slowly slowly the lenses will complete by next year. Ricoh is working hard in that department. Hopefully Sigma with Art and Zeiss with Otus will join also.

Link | Posted on May 9, 2016 at 14:36 UTC

Two thumps up for Ricoh giving the best image machine to K-1. They don't afraid this will eat the MF market they are playing into. Instead of giving crippled product, they give the best, now they push the envelope for the next development.
What could we expect to see should be 645Z-II will have 100 Mp bigger sensor.

In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: Smart idea of Ricoh using the older 36mp Sony sensor to keep the cost well under $2K. Too bad Pentax did not have 4K video mode with H.265 like the Samsung NX1 to increase sales but it looks like most Pentax users are not interested .

The sensor is not capable to produce 4K video.

Link | Posted on May 7, 2016 at 13:35 UTC

High ISO is really awesome with pixel shift, better than D810. But we must admit that sensor wise, D810 is better. Ricoh need to release high quality lenses really soon.

In reply to:

Puljak: Dpreview, what was the purpose of making this test public once you realised that the lens was subpar? Your comment about the lens is now buried deep inside this comments section, and people are left to judge the results of a new camera on the basis of inconclusive data.

You could have at least left a comment at the top of the page that the test will be revisited once you receive a good copy of the lens.

I think there is something wrong in the testing. Looking RAW and JPEG images give different impression. The raw from K-1 is really bad compared to the D810, but the jpeg is quite impressive.
