Haven’t completelly made up my mind yet.
Theres a Panasonic coming that could be worth waiting for,Not much has been leaked yet.It supposedly is a direct competitor to BM.

Also a Fuji is coming early 2019, it could be worthwhile.Its a detuned XT3,but i dont know to what degree???

wtf does the k1 have to do with a micro 4/3 camera

They both have a shutter and a sensor, theres not too much news about the OLY so better talk about the 2nd worse camera released this year!

It's annoying to see that any post about a camera other than Pentax simply degrades into some meaningless defense of the pentax that was never even criticized.

Pentax folks are the most defensive I've ever seen. It's so strange.

Some of the closed minds can be classified as such,however the level of comment is minor.

It appears to me that for every 3 comments there are 97 non comments,certainly some threads will differ.Other forums Ive observed are close to that figure as well.

I just find it so strange that the great defenders are spending their time defending on a board for Pentax enthusiasts. None of us need convincing


The em1x is a really interesting camera. It's a shame we can't talk about it because some website said something bad about a k1

I just hope Olympus can keep pushing forward with technology and innovation. They pack a lot of great technology into their cameras. The IBIS is by far the best in the industry. I really wish they were joining Panasonic/Leica/Sigma with the new mount.

What I've been most impressed with is their lenses. The pro line of Olympus lenses are staggeringly good.

Their ibis is incredible though. I'm tempted to buy one of their IS lenses just to see how far you can push it when it syncs with the ibis. People are hand holding multi second exposures with these.

We are about to enter 2019 and K-1ii brings everything that Pentax had developed in 2016. So Ricoh-Imaging should bring something new next year.
I'm the same as Winder, Ron, the K-1 is such a great camera I shoot landscapes, sport, action, events, portraits with it and didn't see a need to upgrade it to the Mark II. I hope it has a five year product lifetime and more people can own it as its price is reduced.

The 645Z is just like that. A terrific product that's become more affordable.

Two different people making ordinal lists will have items in a different order or even completely different items. Both DPR and IR are being superficial.
I actually agree with you. But there are people who take such Internet lists seriously.

And DPR certainly do. It's advertising. They sell the stuff they review, unlike IR.

It's called conflict of interest.

Wibbly, I think you're being tolerated on this board more than you would on say, the Pentaxians Facebook group. As someone who's sold out of the system, you'd no longer qualify to be a member, and it's actually against their rules to post about or promote another brand.

I believe its a XH-2. The XH-1 is pretty much pointless given the feature set of the XT-3. Fuji need more separation between those two lines.

That depends on performance and image quality.
