Competition is good for you and the competitors. Let's hope that Nikon can produce something original.

Bravo for being frank. I never did quite understand why you hadn't tested the K1 II using the same lens and settings as the K1 review, but things happen for a reason. It's clear that the 'new' K1 is a poor update compared to the original model. Gains are very limited and RICOH is very well aware of that. Why does one hang onto a brand when there are perhaps 'more advanced' options out there? Because we like Pentax for what it is and does. A great photo box that works well when you know its limits. What would you do without it? :-)

johnami: Surprised by the image result if as you say it is worse. As a long time Pentax user, I don't understand why Ricoh would invest in producing a camera that is inferior to the excellent K1!? People who buy into Pentax are interested mainly in picture quality. We know the K1 isn't the fastest of beasts. So why worsen its key quality?

I also don't understand why people who don't own Pentax love pushing the knife in. What's the point? If you are happy with your Caniiksony good......

Very interesting article. Thank you gentlemen. It proves that there is more in a lens than the eye can see. And all 'that more' provided by mother earth.

dansclic: Again, why not’having a single,page instead of those exasperating 10 pages with three sentences giving’ actually few new information ???

Just a correction to help you with your English, if you don't mind......You can't use 'few' with information. Few is a plural and information is not. You should say 'so little information' But if you want to quantify 'information' you say 'pieces of information', in which case you can say' few pieces of information'... Hope it helps...,;-)

Dear Tampon, I would love to buy some more glass from you, but I need your lenses in Pentax K mount..... Any possibility of doing this?

Thank you in advance...

pffff............
I wonder how many of these 'best' boxes will still be operational in 20 years time?

ybizzle: When you are buying a camera, you aren't just buying a sensor. Enjoyment, handling, and aesthetics are not to be discounted. Given a choice between the X100F and the A7iii with an equivalent prime, the X100F would be my choice every time.

Will the A7iii have better IQ, DR, etc? Probably. Do I care? Not really...

It's not about what 'one' can afford. I really don't care if 'one' can afford this or that. Everybody is free to spend what they want. But the price does reflect what is inside a camera body and it seems to me that comparing a Fuji x 100F with a A7R3 isn't really fair. Of course the Sony is a more advanced beast technically, but 'if' Fuji were to produce a €3500 FF body it would probably be just as good.
The best camera you can have is the one you've got providing you know how to use it properly. Enjoy your new digital camera, whatever it will be.

And there is the question of € 2000 plus price difference, but we won't mention that because a lot of people here don't seem to take that into consideration anymore.

On article Buying Guide: The best pocketable enthusiast cameras (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

johnami: Just because a model came out 3 years ago, it doesn't mean you should ignore it. The Ricoh GR 2 certainly continues to produce fine images for its size and price. Perhaps each years guide should only contain cameras issued in the year mentioned if you are going to leave out fine, still in production compacts.

It's the word 'pocketable' that I have a problem with. In the other guide featuring fine cameras, I wouldn't say that any of them are really 'pocketable' except for the GR2. So going by the title, it should be here..........

johnami: 42.4MP? Seriously very few people here are ever going to need or use so much definition. Yes you can zoom into the image, crop....but most of the time you won't imo. So don't waste your money on buying technology.

Yep the dedicated user or pro will use the 42.4 resolution and the others may have more money than sense. It is one hell of a machine like the NIkon 850, but for me it isn't a piece of equipment for everyone. You need very expensive glass to do the job, not a cheaper kit zoom lens.
