If it's 98 or 99% is there a difference? Film SLRs used to be around 92%.
What if the actual calculation is 99.23% and the lawyers made them slip 'approximately' into the feature statement?

Go strait to 33.10 min for the K-1 RAW Talk ...

Complete Fail or GENIUS Idea: RAWtalk 171 | Fro Knows Photo
I have seen this guy before with some decent reviews. They are completely mocking the Pentax brand in this video. What else is new? Pentax clearly is not getting the respect it deserves. It is up to us to show more pics taken with Pentax gear so people know it is a viable alternative in the DSLR space. I want to see him make fun of the K1 when some images start surfacing on the web. Nobody is making fun of 645Z. The same will happen to K1.

Probably not a noticeable difference between 98 or 99 .

The only camera I had that didn't have 100% VF, was a K-r. I think the VF coverage was 96% or 98% and it was noticeable.

Hmm. Well I can't argue with the specs on the ricoh website.

Why BH and Adorama states k1's VF is 100%?


Who knows, maybe their template only takes a % value for that field ... or they don't read carefully either

Fro Knows Photo? Feels to me like some sort of case study in narcissism and big-brand snobbery. If anything, a constant reminder that photography must be about going out and shooting instead of ranting about it.

Would much rather have FroZone talk about the K-1.

I just watched it, and thought it was fine. They were actually pretty complimentary of the specs and the price. Sure, they cracked a few predictable jokes about Pentax's tiny user base, but so what? The fro guy said he wouldn't mind using the K-1.

Complimentary? The one guy reading the specs in a mocking tone, and the other clown being a sarcastic, insulting tool? We may have watched different videos. Also calling them predictable 'jokes' is a bit generous.

I didn't see it the same way. I think people are being a little too defensive here. We all know that Pentax is a huge underdog, and very few people respect them as a competitor to Canon and Nikon, if they're even aware of them at all.

The biggest moment of sarcasm I saw was when Fro-guy was talking about the viewfinder not being 100%, and I thought he was sarcastically acting like it was a "deal-breaker!", meaning he actually didn't think it was a deal-breaker at all.

Hey at least he thinks KEN Rockwell is dangerous to photography.

He does kind of have a thing about Pentax more as a joke sort of thing. I've seen comments made in past episodes. One of which was a top 10 list of things you didn't want to hear your wedding photographer say and one of those things was "Hey I'm bringing my brand new Pentax"

True.

Being funny is probably one of the best ways to gain popularity. But now everybody wants to be funny. When there is absolutely no need to. A weird obsession.

I watched a few Polin video's some time back. I had forgotten about him till reminded by this link. I came to the conclusion that he was a very annoying presenter with a very polarising style. Maybe its cultural and he is very New York, and I'm not. The addition of the 3rd clown to the circus did nothing to change that opinion.

My great thanks to the OP for giving the start point so I didn't have to wade through the rest of the bulldust to get to the Pentax seconds.
