DanK7: Haha, not yet released but some wag has already clicked "I had it."

Or maybe he's "had enough of it"?

Cheezr: The company says dynamic range is improved, with noise performance improved by 1EV (though we're somewhat sceptical about this).

That comment is unworthy of you Richard. I have seen no snarky staff comments on any other Mfgrs announcement articles. Sad.

Yes, Richard, that was totally uncalled for. Consider retracting that sort of comment. You haven't had the camera in your hand yet. How can you possibly say that?

Two cameras/lens? For a minute there I was hoping I could do stereo (3D) photography with it. Sigh...

graybalanced: The main reason 8K is being introduced now is because the Rio Olympics offer something we haven't seen before that could change the course of the Games. With 8K, we can visually resolve the infectious microbes in the water.

You, Nelmo, are a moron.

cgarrard: Fujifilm interviews almost always seem more direct and honest than many others I read. Very refreshing and interesting :)

Exactly right, Carl.

To Eugene343 - A very inappropriate comment from someone who knows little of Fuji nor owns a Fujj camera.

In reply to:

owenleve: completely defeats (in my opinion) the heart of going mirrorless. Size, weight, cost. And this lens better be 2.5x better than the f4 version. Compared to a nikon lens the f4 is garbage.

The F4 lens is NOT garbage. You know absolutely nothing. I have the F4 lens and it is excellent. Next time, think before you spout off nonsense.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2669 comments in total)

To DPR: Glad to see you dropped the "poor" wording regarding the AF. Very "poor" choice of words. Be careful, as you can easily create a firestorm with sweeping comments like that (which are not true).

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2669 comments in total)
In reply to:

caver3d: Is this some kind of a joke? Silver Award? I believe the K-3 got a Gold. What's up with DPR, anyway? This is one superb camera. And for the bevy of great features versus price, how can you beat it? (And, yes, I also own the Sony A7RII along with the K-1, etc., so I have some idea of what a state-of-the-art camera can do.) All cameras have pros and cons, but the K-1 really shines. But, don't worry Canikonphiles, you'll be sure to get your Gold awards. Just amazing.

Nonsense to all of you - brendon1000, Thematic, etc. I HAVE the camera. YOU do NOT. I know the AF functions well. Do you foolishly believe everything a reviewer says? Obviously you do. And the video performance is fine. If you want better, get a video cam.

Kona Mike: I really don't care about the camera "format". There was a debate years ago about film or digital. When I put my first digital print in a collage frame next to negative based film prints, I was sold. Toss in the histogram, image preview, and 100% zoom focus checking and case closed. Add in photoshop, online sharing, metadata searches, cloud backups and you're just piling on. It took a while for digital to beat film, but it did.

There are optical advantages to getting the glass closer to the sensor, which is why Canon came out with the EF-S format. There are some advantages to focusing on the sensor. However, there are still some areas where mirrorless needs to improve before it can knock DSLRs off the throne. For the vast majority of photographers, mirrorless is good enough, so has it won? Does it need to beat a DSLR at every conceivable subject matter and situation? Who cares.

Pick what works best for you and go shoot some great photos!

Panasonic and Olympus are the true pioneers of mirrorless. There, I fixed it for all of you.

Actually, it's your arrogant comments that are useless.

No thanks. I'll just have to carry on with my meager Sony A7RII. Or maybe I can stick a Hasselblad label over my lookalike Pentax K-01. Pentax, you're ahead of your time.

In reply to:

steelhead3: There goes any sales (the 68 is delayed by months), I wonder if the K1 is going to be delayed?

Not mine. I just got the K-1 from B&H yesterday. But that camera had either (1) already been manufactured prior to the earthquake, or (2) Pentax already had an adequate inventory of sensors before the earthquake. Probably the latter reason.

Jonathan F/2: So nice of Fuji to keep updating their unfinished cameras.

Really inappropriate comment. No camera is "finished".

In reply to:

sh10453: I'd think that Panasonic engineering management is now operating in panic mode, with a series of urgent meetings!
Historically, Panasonic has been very much the leader in this type of cameras.
One of my cameras is the FZ200, and I like the 600mm f/2.8 constant, but I certainly don't like the tiny sensor size on it due to poor image quality in low light situations (if flash is not used).

This is a nice camera. A 600mm Zeiss lens on a 1" sensor is decent for many photographic situations.
I think the next challenge is an 800mm on a 1" sensor with at least the same lens brightness f/2.4-4, or the same 600mm lens on a 1.5" sensor. I see that coming in a few short years (5 years? Maybe less!).

Well done, Sony engineers. You deserve a credit. Great job!!! Now hurry up and get us the 800mm f/2-2.8 ... :)

Absolute nonsense. You can get the Pany FZ1000 for less than $700. Sony can't compete on cost, regardless of any other features. I have the FZ1000 - amazing camera.
