Wow, wow, and wow! DPR's new form of review is most impressive. Looks great, very well thought out, easy to read, gets to the point and with an elegant touch, too. The team has outdone themselves. Congratulations. I really liked how you nailed down all the +'s and - points to such a degree. What a service, and all for free. :-)

I think after all is said and done to upgrade the K-1 to Mark II, Pentax/Richoh are doing a real service for K-1 customers. I can't imagine after cost of parts, shipping to the service facility, service fees, teardown, removal, installation, fine-tuning and adjustments, and rebuild that Pentax is making much if any money on this. What a nice thing to do for their customers. :-)

These are 'phones' or portable telephones. Call quality doesn't make it into the data points.

DiffractionLtd: Neither Canon nor Nikon, notorious "feet-draggers" on this deserve 50% of the mirrorless market. Why reward timidity, greed and lack of innovation?
Canon = Nokia.

Either they're foot draggers or have waited to see what the initial innovation that has come from sony and m4/3's, then swoop in and strike. Probably both.

Rich Evans: One of the most underrated companies out there: great build quality, cost, high Mpix, ergonomics, controls, DNG file format (I despise proprietary RAW formats specially ORFs), high DR.

No, it wasn't due to poor marketing. Minolta lost large amounts of cash on a failed film format and having lost a suit on AF with Honeywell.

ZeBebito: Seems the Amazon links was updated, now it says $2199.95 (why not $2200???) for the body only.

That way, they can say the price was lowered.

I purchased the Nik collection some months before Google bought Nik and made it free. Where does that leave people who paid for Nik... do we get included/grandfathered into the new paid version? TIA

I don't doubt Sony is poised to introduce their own MF bodies and lenses at a particular point in sensor and camera advancements. It should be an interesting mix, to say the least.

In reply to:

Lan: What they should do is open source their firmware, and then let the community add their own touches to it - like an official Magic Lantern/chdk.

entropy 512 and friends. For what its worth, or not...

"Unfortunately, in our case the curse of the firmware upgrade struck us, and after downloading and unpacking the file we were unable to make our iron accept it. We can confirm that the process failed for us on Ubuntu, Windows, and MacOS computers, so maybe it just wasn’t our lucky day. Fortunately the TS100 is not one of those devices that is easily bricked by a failed firmware upgrade, so we were simply presented with an error file rather than a dead iron.

It’s worth pointing out here that the TS100 firmware is billed as open-source, and that the code and schematics are available from the link above. We say billed as open-source though, because while the code is officially freely available it does not seem to be accompanied by any form of open-source licence. This may be of more concern to software libre purists than many readers, but still, it is worth mentioning."

Nicely done. Thanks for the walk-around.

Dollar for dollar, the Pentax K1 doesn't look too shabby either :-)

Maybe what's unprecedented is that Yashica never made a clip-on lens for smartphones, and this is the first unprecedented one for future sale.

Only from the mind of DPreview.
Bravo, guys.
