$1200? Srsly? Did he have the same reaction to the D500 or X-T4?

I've said this before and I'll say it again- the K-3 is quite fairly priced for what you get. It's probably better than the D500, which cost the same at launch. Can't afford it? Get a brand new KP for 1/3 the price, with plenty of budget to spare for lenses.

Maybe he's still angry about the money he says Ricoh didn't pay him.

Of course, Mike then says...

Well, calm down, hoss. I need to stop applying my price sensitivity level to cameras. It's a bad habit. And it's dumb. There are plenty of people out there for whom the difference between $1,200 and $2,000 for a camera body is not especially meaningful....So I should just chill out. Two grand means it's out of my price range; it doesn't actually mean it's too expensive.

D500 is 4 years old, you are saying possible better and thinking what Pentax/Ricoh charges is somehow okay even though D500 has better specifications.
They can charge whatever they want, but for the money it's not worth it.

Being an adult is overrated.

I was trying to figure out where he got $1200. Then I realized it was the Canon M6 Mk II that Canon put in a DSLR body and called it the 90D...then I LOL'd.

Eh, I wouldn't go so far as to say the D500 has "better specifications".

If you compare the two cameras, the D500 excels in some respects, the K-3 III excels in others.

And if ultimate image quality is important, the K-3 III wins, easily.

Nothing like an absolute assertion when it comes to making a value judgment.
