Right. It was moved by another moderator, I made the post.
Moved is the past tense of move, though I did err by not stating it in a grammatically correct sentence such as "This post has been moved."
I'm not sure why it's so bloody important to you, though. :confused2:

Let's let the thread get back to the subject.
Your post reads as though you were moving the thread because it was in the wrong subforum. I'll cop to having the same initial reaction as dcshooter.

LOL! the original post was just to remind people who were thinking of "switching" to mirrorless because of the size savings that they might be missing "the big picture".

The D5 certainly looks like it would be fun to carry around for 5 hours, with a 70-200 or similar mounted.
K-1 with the new 70-200 and grip won't be much lighter. And silly to compare D5 and K-3 II..one is a monster of a good camera for pros, the other one is a good aps-c camera. Not even close in quality. Like comparing Ferrari and Toyota.

If you wanna compare sizes, do the D810 vs K-1

The counterargument would be that the Sony system feels awful and unbalanced in the hands. The second-gen a7 cameras have improved ergonomics, but they are still front-heavy monstrosities.

It's like trying to keep hold of a Fabergé egg with a lead pipe attached to it.

But imagine if you had a Pentax mirrorless that those Pentax Limiteds would fit on.

Or keeping the register distance and fabulous K mount like the mirrorless K-01.

Shortening the register distance only serves a purpose for wide angles (and smaller sensors with is irrelevant here). A special K mount wide angle lens can be built to fit inside the mirror box, with only the front element and a thin focus ring outside. Looking like a wide angle version of XS 40mm f2,8. The "K-02" should only have a different designer and an EVF.
