That's a fine image, but why do they never post any samples that show any detail? Why can't they ever have any people images?

I hope its the facebook compression, cause that isn't a very good shot to show off the camera. That looks nasty.

I thought the same thing. I want to see the DR from the K-1 but that pic is so dark, especially in the trees, it is not a great sample pic.

Anything hosted on Facebook is going to look terrible due to the aggressive compression and resizing. This forum has the same problem. That's why those in the know link to images hosted on dedicated photo-hosting sites.

#biz-engineer is correct, though: it is a fine photo, but as presented to us it could have been made with any camera.

If it had been done with a K-3 you wouldn't have been impressed with it either.

I wouldn't be. It's just not a good image.

What were Ricoh America thinking?

Now that Pentax has a full-frame camera, everyone knows that cat or flower images shot at f1.4, with the bokeh dial set to '11', are the only acceptable K-1 demonstration images.

Haven't seen any cat images yet, but the pixel shifted flower image they released on the Ricoh Imaging site was actually pretty dang impressive.

Not true! Not true!
Those coveted only-one-eye-in-focus portraits© will be desireable as well.

(Oh c'mon. You all knew I had to slip that in eventually. )

Ahh, yes.

So many delightful images to look forward to, once the K-1 gets into stores. I can't wait.
