aris14: Numbers, numbers...
Ιs there another thread of comments for a camera review in which the DPR staff has posted 67 times, i.e 4.75% of total posts..?

We equally love fanboys and crusaders...
Actually, we love all protected or endangered species...

We all know that a software, generally a product, is as good as its support. If a manufacturer wants to remain a manufacturer developing only the main key operational core of software needed leaving potential numerous apps for additional controls, whatever may allowed in any field to be designed, is rather a serious dedicated manufacturer. Users have only to earn from this conceptualization of Ricoh in every aspect. I guess that Ricoh must keep a distant eye on what it may produced.
I also think that Ricoh will be long term benefited from this concept in more ways than this very moment can be perceived.
Ricoh through Pentax is changing the landscape of photography as we used to understand it so far.
This a move to to the right direction.

Given that 99% of the pix shot from this cam from the 99% of its buyers will be shown at its best in a 4K monitor, its performance is more than enough... Even pricing is fair for its USP... No..?

I think that no one has a problem or two maybe with Sony, the opposite I would say, no matter what they actually say. More than that I think that everyone can understand more or less the historical view of digital photography. Explaining history sometimes may be necessary, but sometimes is justifying.
Under this point of view I think that this article is justifying facts and figures.
For some people this is useful for some not.
I don't find this article useful at all, but it's a nice story anyway...

@Gary Martin...

Cynically speaking, at least this guy -I/we like it or not- has a/one name...
That said, he is too obvious, so he can be ignored, no..?
Btw, this obviousness never causes any real problems comparing to other forms of obviousness which can hardly be noticed and etc. etc...

Fiscal data of any consumer's product company are definitely not an issue for us as potential clients...

skorpionet: But wait... shots between old and new k-1 and between different scenes with the new one aren't with the same lens!?!?! OMG

When you compare a product's new version especially if the time gap between the previous one is rather short, it's more than obvious that you have to keep the same testing parameters. Doing otherwise, no matter the remarks accompanying your choice, produce to the reader the need to make his/her own assumptions resulting him to be in your place of authority, meaning that the author actually express some inconvenience to say the least. Since the so far approach for this product from the day it launched, created enough "noise", literally and metaphorically, the concept of creating a new misunderstanding, even by stating good intentions, suggest a communicative way of seeing facts and figures which deliberately or not lead to unpleasant perceptions.

..."...The sadistic part of my personality enjoys looking in people’s eyes when they get all excited about the lens and ask me how much it costs. When I say $12,000 USD, the bright light of childish enthusiasm is quickly extinguished..."...

Now this is what we consider a pure and straight photographic approach, no..?

31 meters underwater capability will make it an excellent tool for a lot of people who need to take some shots or video without carrying something bulkier.

It's a pixel peepers comments exchange in which even DPR's staff engaged willingly or not, no matter if they 're offended for their work or not. Of course judging by the features offered from K II comparing to those offered from competition, mainly in video capabilities, justify their point of view, as it clearly shows in their final judgement. But this not the case I think. It's just another effort of compromise so to persuade ourselves/themselves as to how we balance the criteria between overall and dedicated use of a given tool. In any case the final outcome is that no one who knows the demands of the work to be delivered can be seriously influenced in the selection of the tool. And this remain a very good tool for any guy who knows what is to be delivered.
But this is only my opinion...

I think the "best way something" is 50's marketing...
There are numerous techniques each one depending on subject and on output.
Numerous plugins or standalone sw deliver at lest equivalent results (usually better) than ps tools and techniques in a fraction of time needed in ps.
Anyway the value of tutorials usually help to comprehend the ps mechanisms so someone can be very effective using additional plugins or standalone sw.
