Joe Ogiba: I bet the Samsung S8 smartphone with 4K video will have a HFC slot when it comes out February 2017.

Ok.
You sound pretty knowledgeable on the topic, so just tell me why improving an existing standard maintaining backward compatibility isn't good enough (say UHS-II)

ogl: It's some kind of revolution for DSLR's card speed.

@GodSpeaks
I do. what's the difference , once you've plugged it in an adapter?
It's not like it'll come off easily...

So an informed buyer gets to be called a member of "the masses" just for not liking blind consumerism?
Good to know...

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2661 comments in total)

I take advantage of the fact that my K-01 (the mirrorless) is almost ISO-invariant all the time... at night or indoor in places like pubs, concert venues etc. you have strong highlights more often than not... and it's nice to be able to have max DR /and/ manageable noise levels.

Now "inspire" is synonymous with "deceive"? :-D

utphoto: So, for about $60 more, a first time DSLR buyer could get a Pentax KS2 kit with a 20 meg SONY sensor that blows away any Canon APS-c sensor, a weather sealed body, dust proof, cold proof, built in interval shooting, articulated LCD display, shake reduction, no AA filter, high ISO performance, selfie button (if that's important), 5.5 fps. And no buyer's remorse after six months because you own a camera body that has features and IQ not available in any Canon APS-c body at any price.

I'm too busy taking picture with my "camera's" to do the thing everyone else is already doing.

Well, continue trusting your "interwebs reviews", I'm sure they all are fairly equanimous and none of them show an anti-Pentax bias just beacuse Pentax isn't buying them lunch... :-|

@Auricom
If you had tried both Pentax and Canon bodies you would have understood what utphoto meant without needing to make snarky and pointless remarks like the one you just wrote down...

It's going to be an interesting device, I'm thinking about buying that myself.

...or to aggressive NR, pretty common in mobile phones for obvious reasons.

@Favorable Exponynt
Dunno... is Lomography still producing some?

Other than that I don't think anyone is currently producing M42 cameras anymore...

Need we tell you what the difference is? (rolleyes)

Yake: The usual comments are that you can find some old lens for the cost of a coffee and it will do the same thing. But good luck finding those old lenses in all of these mounts, free of scratches and fungus, etc. I'm glad they're making these. Some people will make good use of them.

I've had wonderful experiences in Russia and Japan (different lens categories ofc), with pristine items that really were "new" or "as new" (checked thoroughly) for a fraction of the going price.
Quite a bit of scouring is necessary, of course.

Not really good luck, it's pretty easy if you know where to look and/or you happen to travel regularly to the countries where they can be found easily.

Jonathan F/2: More overpriced hipster lenses by Lomo? Just buy a Helios 44 for $30-40 and get the better OOF bokeh effects, sharper glass and all for a fraction of the price!

I find it mildly bemusing that some people are rushing to buy a modern knock-off of a vintage lens for a ridiculously high sum...

I don't have anything personal against Lomo, it could even be my thing to shoot with a vintage lens (I'm doing that just now BTW), it's just sad to notice that this world has become the hunting territory for enterprises with an m.o. bordering on scamming, and they are really successful in making big money, while real talents and serious commercial propositions often die in little time only because they don't spray dazzling words all over the place, but just offer something realistic at a realistic price.

People just prefer to fall for the talk and be scammed believing they are onto something mystical rather than buying something ordinary that (gasp!) works.

I can't think of any car company making a car with a hand-crank start either...
