The Samsung engineers knew what they were doing. Sad the executives were so corrupt it shut the whole thing down. Along with the Quad Core Processor to handle the 28mp sensor to deliver everything they wanted out of it in particular 4k video they needed the support and leverage of the thing apparently can no longer be mentioned you know i.e. it starts with U and ends with II. :^)

The KP in 2018 did have what you claim is needed. The KP had new sensor new electronics including the Accelerator Unit. The one thing it lacks is UHS-II which is, IMHO, the sole reason the specs against the XT-2 are so poor. The XT-2 clears the full buffer of 22 RAW files in 5 to 7 seconds. They are clearing that fast due to the UHS-II bus. The K-3II is even a better comparison as buffer size holds the same amount of files. The reason the K-3II takes so long to clear the "buffer" compared to the XT-2 is the limitation of the UHS-I bus.

swanlefitte why don't you compare the K-3II or the KP with the Fujifilm X-T 2. I did after all point to both Samsung and Fuji as using UHS-II since 2014.

These are very similar cameras with 24mp sensor all released relatively at the same time. The K-3II and KP don't even come close to the numbers the XT-2 delivers due to the UHS-II bus in the XT-2.

Kunzite I think you are a little obsessed here. Please don't project this onto me. I have looked at the numbers and it is pretty clear the advantages of UHS-II.

Show how the GRIII is writing as fast as the NX1? It doesn't fit the narrative because the GRIII performance specs are not even close to what the NX1 delivers.

Rondec the camera division was closed during a major South Korean political scandal involving Samsung that lasted years. The closing of the camera division was a victim of that scandal.

This is completely misleading statement. It only addresses how UHS-I and UHS-II SD cards perform in the NX1's UHS-II bus. This in no way means there is no difference between what a camera delivers using UHS-II bus over UHS-I. The specs of the NX1 proves that. A comparison of the specs of the NX1 and the KP shows what a camera using UHS-II and UHS-I deliver. People using the KP for action photography would welcome the NX1 specs.

The main reason the NX1 and NX500 had such great specs beyond the 28mp sensor which is excellent was Samsung used UHS-II. That was back in 2014. There would have been no 4K video, fps with 28mp sensor etc without it. Fuji also in 2014 used USH-II in the release of the XT-1. The reviews of these cameras reflect the advantage UHS-II brings in performance and responsiveness etc. The DPR review of the XT-1 points this out.

The main reason Samsung shut down the camera division was the on going corruption charges with senior executives. The camera division was a victim of the ongoing scandal.

Like I said you should just move on to another brand. If you can not avoid touching the moving focusing ring during autofocus using a non-QuickShift lens how will you manage using QuickShift lenses? It will be unbearable for you to use a QuickShift lenses in AF because you will always be inadvertently changing focus by always touching the focus ring.

The PF unofficial testing says the vignetting happens wide open at 1.4. How many stops down that it goes away isn't clear to me. PF gives it an A rating beyond wide open. Those three K-1 DA*55 user reviews all say don't use the hood which is the reason the hood should be made to be usable on the K-1. Best case the lenses itself should be made to not vignette on the K-1 at all. Ricoh/Pentax just "tweaked" the hood on the DA10-17 to work better with the K-1 so let's hope they will eventually do the same for the DA*55.

I have considered this lenses except for these problems which has held me off from getting it. It is good to know that outside wide open which I will most likely never be photographing at the DA*55 is excellent on FF. I think 55mm serves well for both FF and APS-C.

Ricoh/Pentax revamping the DA10-17 is the right step for the road map. I don't think the revamp of the FA35 was the right direction. Revamping the DA35 to work on FF that would be the right direction. Ricoh/Pentax should have one lens line that works both on FF and APS-C. Obviously the extreme wide angle is the exception. Still the DA14 is a probable candidate for "revamping" to FF.

That is not the sentiment to how people reviewed the DA*55 using the K-1. They all say it is excellent except for the hood.

What is the point to this post Mistral that I am wrong which some how makes you right? Someone who post's here like they are in the know and an expert you don't sound like it when you act like UHS-II isn't important. So you don't think Ricoh/Pentax should fix the hood on the DA*55 so it doesn't vignette on FF?

Seriously folks do you really want better equipment? Everything seems to be an argument against that. Right because UHS-II is so not needed.

The DA*55 has a removable hood that vignettes on the K-1 that could be fixed.

I am sure they could "tweak" the DA21 into a D-FA lens. They could do this with most of the DA lenses.

No you don't when the bus is the weakest point. How can any one claim the entire system will not benefit if you increase the storage bus from 30mb/s to 300mb/s. The best thing about the people in contention about this is they mostly all claim to be you know in the "industry" whether hardware or software. They are the most persistent in arguing against increasing the capacity of the storage bus. You would think the people in the "industry" would all be screaming in favor of it instead there is a continuous parade of opposition against it.

None of biz-engineers numbers add up the way they claim. Imaging-Resources has detailed performance numbers that don't match up to their claims in any way.

The best part to biz-engineers scenario it is all the image processor as the bottleneck that it only processes 45mb/s of data at a time so it takes a second just to process the RAW. It can not process the files fast enough out of the "buffer". Okay then if that is so the K-1 should be twice as slow as the file still has to take another second to right to the SD card through the UHS-I bus because the process isn't really finished till that happens. But that is not what is happening it doesn't take over 2 seconds to process and write each file to the SD card. It would need to happen if what biz-engineer was even remotely accurate to what they are claiming.

In your scenario the K-1 would be twice as slow as it is now if the image processor can only handle 45Mb/s as you claim as the files still have to pass through the slow UHS-I storage bus. You pretend the files don't even pass through the UHS-I bus that the UHS-I bus doesn't have any effect on the files getting to the SD card.

You could increase the speed of the buffer and the image processing unit to handle 5Gb/s in the K-1 and it will not make a difference because in the end the files run into the UHS-I bottleneck. The files are still going take just as long to write to storage no matter how fast they are processed.

You left out the Accelerator Unit which processes the data off the sensor. Ricoh said this speeds up the whole process except when the files reach the storage bus where everything slows down.

If you replace the UHS-I bus in the K-1 with UHS-II you absolutely will get the speed. UHS-II is exponentially faster in a multitude of ways. It's why the rest of the industry has all already moved to it.

biz-engineer The "buffer" does not take 15 seconds to clear because of the image processing engine it takes that long because of the slow UHS-I bus. The images are already processed and are waiting in the "buffer". So go ahead prove that the reason already processed files in the "buffer" take so long to write to the SD card because of the image processing engine.

Again reh321 the misunderstanding is the KP needs a "buffer" like the K-3 when what it really needs is UHS-II this is whether or not people are posting about it.

---------- Post added 06-30-19 at 04:30 PM ----------



Yes biz-engineer it is a matter of a bottleneck in the image data pipeline. Isn't it easier to just move to UHS-II instead of creating a raid out of two UHS-I slots? The real solution to getting rid of the bottleneck is moving to UHS-II.

Kunzite your statement debunks nothing the "buffer" fills up so fast while you are taking a full sequence of an airplane exciting a low pass because the UHS-I bus is inadequate to empty the filling "buffer" fast enough. The same sequence with UHS-II you will have trouble filling the "buffer". The crawl doesn't happen because the "buffer" is full. The crawl happens after the first image is captured because it takes over a second to write each file from the "buffer" to the card due to the slow storage bus. It is not that hard to understand here Kunzite. Honestly why the argument? Because you want me to be completely and utterly wrong?

And no Kunzite I am pretty sure I am not alone here. I am just willing to put up with the abuse.

No you are directing your frustration at me. My life experience has often shown just because people are all in agreement doesn't mean they are right. I don't even understand such question's like what do you think you are going to change anyones mind. It is either you comprehend the facts or you don't. The wisest man can not help anyone past that argument.
