On article Ricoh's Pentax K-3 III 26MP DSLR is finally here (346 comments in total)
In reply to:

allkar: From my point of view - simply 5 years too late. Times are changing.

That's how I see it too and I am not against Pentax.
What I mean is the fact that this camera doesn't bring any breakthrough innovations. A better viewfinder is the only plus.
This camera follows on from the level of the competition, only much later.
New sensor is due to technical development, as is the case with all other new cameras. Improved AF means it's better than before. How good it is, you have to see it later. The same with Hi-ISO. The lack of fully articulated display isn't up to date. It is not at all easy to judge this.

Maybe, maybe not ...
"Seems to have" and "have" make a difference.
Wait and see what the tests show.

Zorak: Very professional. Marketing needs to stop with this "pro" term, it's utter nonsense.

The term "Pro" was devalued a long time ago. Lots of manufacturers print "Pro" on every sh*t. It doesn't make the product any better

(unknown member): R5 easily.
It is arguably the best "do it all" stills camera. Its the only one that shoots over 40 megapixels faster than 11 FPS while auto focusing, and it can do it at 20 FPS.
It is the only 40+MP sensor that can fully readout in 1/60h of second. That's like 3 times faster than the A7Riii and Z7, and 4 times faster than the A7Riv.

Oh, and its the only camera that can shoot 8K and RAW internally for over 5 minutes. It can even do it over for over 10 minutes even though no camera can shoot 4K RAW internally that long. Oh, and it can also usually shoot 8K and RAW for over 20 minutes (even though no camera can do either for 1 second) . :D

They could have put a 10-12 MP 4K sensor in the R5 and it would not over heat, but then it would suck as a stills camera. They made the right choice pushing the boundaries and doing many things other camera cannot for even a second.
Even its only for 20 minutes there is a big difference between CAN and CAN'T.

"so r5 is no replacement for anything, more like it's a weak compromise that overheats easily, has poor battery life, etc"

Sorry, it sounds like a statement from an iphone photographer.

Graham Meale: Why does DPR persist with this rubbish every year? The only people qualified to vote are people who have had extensive experience of all the items listed. That would rule out 99% of participants.

Yes, that's rubbish. Especially when some write "I own it" or "I had it".
And that for products that have not yet been delivered

azinheira: Why is the best if not even on the market yet. Canon just announced a few days ago a delay on this product because was no demand for it????

Best zoom lens - Runner-up: Canon RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM

Pandemic? That may be the case, however new Sony and Panasonic or Fuji cameras are available. Are they immune?

Demand would be there, only Canon is unable to deliver, and not just 70-200. Try to buy R5 in Europe. Delivery time > 3 months.
The best camera is one you have, the worst one that can't be bought.

... and I would like a real lens with a zoom control handle like this 24-105 mug :-)

In reply to:

MikeRan: This lens looks great.

Definitely interested to see a well executed image stabilization test with this lens on a recent full frame body that clearly shows how well IBIS performs particularly at the long end when compared to something like the 70-200GM. We know the value of IBIS with shorter primes. I’m also not interested in hypotheticals. I’m sure people will say IBIS isn’t optimized for long focal lengths. I’m not interested in those feelings. Just interested in actual unbiased results.

You're right, sorry

What does noise on the A7RIV have to do with this comment or this lens?

I'm not shocked about noisy of the Sony a7R IV, I'm shocked about Tamrons QM:

The viruses in the bat, scientist are trying to study it. And, maybe we lose control of it ?
Human being is also geating weaker than our ancestor.

Nice, but it's a pity that the price is inversely proportional to the size...

Ken60: Just as well they did not recover it from deep in the skull of a passing hiker ! Anyone that hangs anything out of a chopper or fixed wing without a secure strap is a fool.
Perhaps the MD of Iceland Photo Tours can ponder the great coverage they would get world wide for killing a tourist.

Everthing waht I can see, is bad image stabilisation :-)

In reply to:

steelhead3: Why is Canon putting IBIS in their cameras? For years, the Canon faithful have been telling the Sony shooters how much better lens based system left over from the film era was. Even after other camera makers moved to mirrorless and IBIS, they persisted with these statements. Now the new generation of stabilization is incorporating lens and IBIS to get a very stable platform. It may follow that Canon intends to not use optical IBIS but a combination of digital and lens based like in their video cameras.

The market is asking, so they have to give it.
And yes - lens based system is much better and more efficient, but expencive.

Oh wow, like the 70-200/4.0 Canon - 11 years ago...

Unfortunately, my experience with Tamron is not so good.
1.8/ 85 - differences in AF with and without stabilization.
1.8/ 35 - front / back focus of different distances.
µAdjustment from +5 to -15.
Not at a price of over $ 500 per lens.
Scrap.
