..if they price their products right. The DA*300 is for 150,000 INR, which equates to ~2300USD! I can import it from B&H, pay duty and still end up paying much less!
I wonder who is getting that difference ....taxes.....or the middleman....or ?

(Effect is strong, weak, OFF selectable) low-pass selector function obtained the same effect as the optical low-pass filter by moving slightly during exposure image sensors.

So if i understand correctly the low pass filter is replaced by removing moire through sensor shift.

With a selectable strength, yep.
I would like to see Canon or Nikon do that with in-lens image stabilisation! With every lens!

(Edit) Whoops! What about flash?

I should have packed a lunch before starting this thread.

I suspect there are more camera consumers than there are serious photographers with no desire for video. That leads me to the conclusion that if the implied stats are correct Ricoh may have a real winner (from the sales perspective) with this model.

Huh? My K-5 could do video quite easily. Easier than my D600 IMO.

I don't see anything that makes this camera better than Canon's cameras... tough to tell the whole experience from a spec sheet, though, and perhaps some people left Pentax because of 'difficult' video...?

I bought a house in January, therefore I will get a mortgage interest deduction. I wonder if that will put my tax refund high enough to get one.

Wow 31 pages already in 2 days. I can't believe the posting speed here sometimes. =))

Looking at the K-3 stuff though, those are pretty impressive on paper. I'm on my toes waiting for first actual previews.

I’ve had my K20D for years. Always thought about upgrading but none of the replacements seemed good enough. This is it! Saving my money for K-3! Hoping for further improvements in high ISO shooting and really really really hoping that AF is as awesome as it sounds.

Too fast, too soon. Not shmartz.

Benjamin what's his name has moved a bit too fast over to Nycon.

I have no doubt that you'll be happy.

The biggest issue with Canon cameras is related to their lag on sensor performance. They just aren't at the same level as Sony/Toshiba.

The shutter is actually good for 200,000 actuations - google botched the translation as usual. Anyway, that would be a 2x increase over the K-5 series.
Offcourse only when you already are the shooter who makes more then 100k images on their K-5, otherwise you won't notice (My guess is >90% off the users).



My K-5 Silver Limited Edition is now on 159k actuations.

Almost the same story here. The K20D is my main camera. The K-5 wasn't good enough for an upgrade (AF issues) . The K-5IIs was good enough, but I passed because the K-3 was already in the rumour mill. I'm glad I waited.

If he gets a shoot's worth of usable images out of switching then I'd say it's well worth it. His pay for one shoot could probably buy his whole pentax / nikon setup anyway.

In studio settings the cameras dont really matter anyway these days... all of them can do it well with the right glass.

Interesting statement, considering you have no idea what the new K-3 really performs like in real life!

I for one am done purchasing Pentax cameras until they come up to the standard Nikon has set with it's AF in real world photography.
