ogl: 4K in cameras is just mockery. You need REAL 4K monitor to see REAL 4K video...
4096 × 3072 or 4096 x 2160.
Ultra HD is 3840 × 2160 compressed consumer format. Not real 4K.
But...the main truth is that bandwidth must be more than 1.8 Gbps, not 100 Mbps. Not even 250. No processor which could process it in camera. 3840 x 2160@120 Mbps is HIGHLY compressed video. And 23.98p....He-he...

In the best case you can see Ultra HD highly compressed video if you buy Ultra HD TV.
Marketing tricks.

Good news, rich man. :)

Zvonimir Tosic: Pentax/Ricoh users seems to be easily fooled with anything. Ricoh is rolling the cost of extra software development, major firmware updates and minor tweaks down on CURRENT users. So current users pay extra $500 on top of old price they already paid, but they think they get more. (In case of K1 an K1 Mk2 changes are insignificant / cosmetic for most shooters; the changes are NOT like, from D800 to D850). Like that, current users get practically nothing new for $500 extra, further locked in within the system, which Ricoh wants — too many people frustrated with Ricoh have abandoned Pentax brand for good.
Fujifilm still offers SIGNIFICANT upgrades via the software — for free. In fact, Fujifilm is most likely camera industry leading in provided customer service.

I've changed K-5 to K-5IIs because of better accuracy of AF and no AA filter. As for low-light AF - I hardly see serious difference. Yes, -3EV, but it's on paper. Huge leap is big words :)
Better sharpness and better accuracy are facts. SAFOX X was better than SAFOX IX+ in terms of accuracy. As for me, SAFOX IX+ was one the worst AF in real work. Though, Pentax promised that it's better than SAFOX VIII+.

The index II always means minor upgrade for Pentax cameras. ist DS/DS2, ist DL/DL2, K-5/K-5II, K-3/K-3II,

IQ is for 200USD. Not above. They could use optical plastics.

I tell about the art taste's direction. About basic tendency.

The main question from me is WHEN ZINK technology became cheaper and I can print my photos with A4 and A3 with ZINK printer. I want to leave some prints for my issue :)

runbei99: Very happy to see that Elena Shumilova made the cut - her photos of her children on a farm in Russia are stunning. See http://www.boredpanda.com/animal-children-photography-elena-shumilova/. She shoots with a Canon 6D and the amazing 135mm F/2.

I find Flickr a tremendous resources for evaluating prospective camera and lens purchases. (Why do so many Fuji X-Pro2 photos look slightly soft - weird!)

Elena Shumilova is the best example of making a lot of false photos in glamour style. She exploits her children to earn money. She works till 4 hours with post-processing of ONE photo and makes it absolutely unreal. Her photos are more hard-headed than artistic.

I dare to say and write absolutely everything that I find necessary and correct, in the very form that I personally find appropriate, not asking anyone for permission, the highest approval, or moral blessing. If I don't like the film or theatre performance, would you ask me to show my staging? If I don't like the dish in restaurant, would you ask me to show my cooking?

Ebrahim Saadawi: 2500$ for a (Very) compact 75/1.9 Medium format lens, perhaps is a good deal if it's decent. For FF, it's acceptable. For APS-C and M43s and S16/1", no way. Just get a freaking 85/1.8 with VC if you want.

MF performance is key here.

The price could be 650-800...

A bit strange method of comparison and time to publish...The difference in portrait 0.2 points, in landscape 0.1, high ISO of 645Z is 16 points better...102 vs 101...50 Mp vs 51.4 Mp

and...the camera is 3 year and 7 months old....:)

pro photo 2011: So for $1,699, you can buy the Panasonic G9 body only, or you can buy the Sony RX10 IV with a 24-600mm Zeiss lens and it has phase detection autofocus that shoots up to 24 fps. Okay, so the Sony has a 1-inch sensor, while the Panny G9 has a M43 sensor.

Video specs of Pana is very cool.

Good camera for video, first of all.
