Discombobulated: why people have to talk loud and like their audiences are 12 years old. do you have an adult version of this introduction? he's super annoying and childish.

You are very easily discombobulated. Take a deep breath and relax. Did it not occur to you that maybe adults aren't the target audience for this video?

Dan_168: I am a huge fan of fixed focal length lens and that's what I am using everyday mostly, however, I will never buy a none-interchangeable lens camera with a fixed lens, makes the camera too limiting for daily use. and a small camera like that is exactly mean to be carry everywhere.

i would rather have a small camera with pancake zoom or pancake prime lens instead, so I will sacrifice a little bit of image quality for the flexibilities when it comes to a small-pocketable kind of camera, and if I am serious about the image quality, I will use the " serious" camera gears where portability will become second priority.

Uh, this camera is a "serious" camera. The image quality is outstanding. The customization of the controls is almost limitless.

And it's perfectly suitable for daily use.

ecka84: How is this $1400 Pentax lens better (picture-wise) (if at all) than the $900 FE20F1.8G or the $1050 Z20F1.8S? Which are not cheap either. I mean, are they even trying to keep the system alive? It seems like they just want to milk it to death (through the most loyal customers). The K-1 is not a bad camera, but the proper optics for it are being released a little too slow, too late and too expensive.
Does it have a filter thread? Looks like it doesn't.

@sincere - why not the DA* 11-18mm f/2.8 ED DC AW?

Photoman: I absolutely hate this format and any sub-miniature, as the quality is CRAP. Glad it is a dead format, like APS.

@Photoman - you were up all night fretting about 110 again, weren't you.

I sure hope you don't lose much more sleep from your seething hatred of a retired film format.

deep7: I find that photo amusing. Due to the small sensor, the earth and vessel are both perfectly in focus at decently useable aperture. You'd be tripping over yourself to reproduce that on the DSLR and maintain a fast enough shutter speed!

Have you never seen the photos from space taken with a DSLR?

zakk9: So some billionaire dude took photos with his phone through a plane window 10 months ago, and now that's considered news? No, dpreview, photos don't become "incredible" just because they were taken from high up.

Plane window? 10 months ago? Are you drunk?

sean lee: I want to see 35mm f2 in GR compact body....I know I'm crazy....

The Q was arguably ahead of it's time. The original Q body is a wonderful thing: well built, great handling, fun to use. And the lenses available are quite good (not counting the "toy" lenses) Given the advances in sensor technology and LCD technology, an original Q with updated internals would be a marvelous thing.

The image quality was pretty good for when the Q was introduced and like all cameras, the IQ is just as good now as it was then. Of course by now, I would say that smartphone cameras have exceeded it.

It's still a very fun little camera and more capable that most people expect.

ecka84: The K-1 (I or II) image quality is still light-years ahead, while $200 cheaper than this K-3III. Pointless.

You're cute, but still badly uninformed. I own a K3iii so I am personally familiar with its image quality. The K1 may well have the edge in image quality, but "light years ahead" is a flat out silly statement.

ecka, you have no idea what you're talking about. Having never used either camera, you're in no position to critique the image quality. The K3iii offers many improvements over the K1 series, which are still fine cameras. Hardly pointless.

Shaun_Nyc: The technology was so good back then we cant go back :-(

How many times are you gonna post that Kranz video? Don't you have anything else? If you even understood what telemetry is, you'd understand why it doesn't matter one little bit that those tapes were overwritten.

It's as if you've fallen down and hit your head, hard, repeatedly. :-)

No, you really don't. You have nothing. Except for one thing: you're funny.

This is what happened to the tapes. No mysterious conspiracy.

https://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/Apollo_11_TV_Tapes_Report.pdf

And there were six other missions to the moon. That the 11 tapes were overwritten and reused proves nothing.

@Chucky99 because it's completely justifialble. Every bit of it. What you believe is false and has been proven false over and over again. You have not one iota of credible evidence to support your beliefs. And as long as you keep spreading this nonsense, you're in for a rough ride. You may say you're entitled to your opinions & beliefs, but opinions & beliefs are invalid when they are factually incorrect.

NASA is not part military. NASA cooperates and in some cases collaberates with the DoD, but their budgets are separate.

The budget was so good then. When the moon stopped being a national priority, so did the budget and the missions. NASA is in the process of returning to the moon, since you haven't been paying attention.
