I think the point is that once you include a lens, neither camera is pocketable --
Not necessarily. A K- whatever with a 40mm Ltd mounted will fit anywhere that it will fit with no lens.

The Sony didn't had a fast zoom, either.

Only one tiny problem with this comparison: The Sony is FULL FRAME!
Yes FF, and it's even a smaller kit then the oh-so compact Pentax DSLR with compact ltd lens: Compact Camera Meter

Put a hood on that 20mm f/2.8, please; the Limited has one

Sorry, my mistake. Thought that was a zoom.

Don't care though. You can put a pancake on either one, and the Sony is clearly smaller.

If you find a pancake 31mm f/1.1 for the K-3 let me know.

Should I remind you of the original claim, which was that one camera fits into a jacket while the other needs a large bag? Or it's pointless to do it?

As long as you let us all know when you find one for the Sony.

If the ideal is a pocket sized camera with DSLR image quality, why isn't everyone celebrating the design marvel that is the GR? It pushes the laws of physics about as far as possible, i think.

To hand-hold a camera with 24+ high quality MP with a sharp stack of glass in front, I want it to have a heavy duty body and built in image stabilization. Something pretty much exactly like the K-3, which I don't own, but am now seriously considering as a step up from my Olympus m4/3 kit.

It's pretty pointless, because I never made that claim. I've also said I don't really care that the Sony is smaller. A few years back, smaller was critical to me - everything had to fit in a pannier.


Nevertheless the Sony is smaller and markedly so.

Simple but good lenses look great on FF

That's the problem for me (and many) with a Pentax FF. If the FF comes out at say $3k, I'm going to want the 31 and 77, and that's going to be in total, a $6k proposition.
Start with a $200 FA 50 f/1.7. You will probably be blown away and it will keep you off the FA Limited hard stuff for at east another year

I already have the FA 50 1.7, Tamron 90 , SIgma 70 and DA 35, so it's not like I'd be bereft of shooting options if I bought nothing. But since I'd see the ff as a landscape system, not having the 31 just wouldn't make any sense. Just looking at images on the forum there are a host of gorgeous 31 Ltd landscapes, DA 35, not so much. (One of my reasons for not completely trusting photozone/ DxO type technical analysis.) And the Rokinon 24 tilt shift just entered the Picture as well.

Nice starting point! But I don't think the DA 35 is FF.

You may want to consider this baby (link to review) :




14) Summary
Having used Samyang lenses before (the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 and the Samyang 85mm f/1.4), I knew that the 35mm f/1.4 version would not disappoint. But while testing the expensive 35mm f/1.4 lenses, I still thought that it would show worse performance than all of its competitors. I was rather surprised to see the lens outperform the exotic Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/1.4 lens in my lab and perform so close to the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G. In fact, I had to re-test the Zeiss and the Nikon lenses over 5 times to make sure that I was not miscalculating anything or missing focus. In all cases, the lenses performed about the same, with the Samyang still rocking the game at smaller apertures. This lens surely shows a lot of value when compared to the expensive brands, with its under $500 MSRP price (compare that to the $1850 price of the Zeiss). For those that shoot landscapes and other types of photography where autofocus is not needed, the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 seems to be a superb choice for sure

It does cover the FF circle, it's pretty much established by now... same for the da 50 1.8.
