If shooting raw, is there any IQ advantages across the various 6mp models? Not worried about camera features, just curious if the sensors improved at all?

Nice review. How do you find the Af compared to the k5ii? I'm still running the original k5 and considering jumping to k70/k3.

Was that Tom? He wont take much persuasion, he likes and uses a Q and definitely has a soft spot for Pentax in general.

It kills me to say it, but at $3100 id be looking at my options. A k3 and $2k to spend on lenses etc would be hard to go past. Hell, i could get a sony A7 for FF shits and giggles and still upgrade my k5 to the k3 with money left over. But lets wait and see on street price. Either way, i'll get a new Pentax Dslr, so happy days.

Rockwell is a flog. Declared that no one needed a camera like the Gr, then went and praised the Coolpix A. Deadset cretin.

I think the "older 50mm lens" bit is a non event. The context is that they are referencing how many legacy lenses can now be used, but dont expect stellar results from all of them. Thats not dissing the camera. I see plenty of reviews that emphasise that you need top glass on the D800 series, for instance.

What im really looking forward too are sample images emerging from the FA prime lenses.

So the only primes that seem genuinely usable on the FF are the Da35 2.4 and the Da55 ? If so, grabbing the 35 at its pricepoint seems a "no-brainer"?

---------- Post added 06-23-2015 at 05:33 PM ----------

Actually, just found a post mid-thread that suggests the Da50 wide open is good on FF.

Poll: A Monochrome Pentax D-SLR! Would you buy it?
Posted By saladin
Replies: 36

I would. though preferably in a GR or range-finder type body, not necessarily in a DSlr. late last year Samsung were rumoured to be working on a dedicated mono version of the NX300. i'd be tempted by that style of camera, but it never emerged.


I see leica have just launched a new Monochrom with the 24 meg cmos sensor. at $8k, they can afford such a niche camera. not sure anyone else ever will though, it'd need to be cheap and limited production runs would likely make it un-economic to be cheap.

bottom line, if Pentax build one i can afford, i'd buy it. probably more so than just upgrading to the latest k3 etc, because i'm already happy with my k5.

One of the key lures for the GR line seems to be a natural affinity for lovely Monochrome results. An upgraded sensor should still be "tuned" for monochrome tonal range imo.

SR would be nice to have. So would an evf. And a 2.0 aperture!

Pentax K-3 II Officially Announced
Posted By saladin

Crikey! Purely going on that sample pic, Pixel shift with a macro lens and static subject could be very very interesting. And if the main aim of Pentax's PS is actually reduced noise, i can forsee some real potential in monochrome work where the darker end of the tonal range may not be filled with noise. Only in still life and/or static landscape etc, of course. Looking forward to seeing what users can do with this camera.

If the AF is improved as well, even if its only a small amount, then i may well have to finally make the jump from the k5.

No one will give a rats tossbag about the flash etc if this thing has a new sensor that kicks arse and even better AF than the k3. Its not going to sell as an upgrade path based on ancillary functions, it will be more traditional improvements that will get pentaxians seeking it out.

Agree entirely, Boris, on the two extra primes. Ive been a tad surprised that the system shifted entirely to zoom lenses (excluding the "toys").

So many of us seemed to instinctively use the Q - particularly the original - for monochrome. Id like to see that line of thought further developed. Give us not more pixels, but more midtone subtleties perhaps.

The iv's seem to appear on ebay, often in japan, every now and then. There are currently ones selling in England, spain and japan but the prices are getting up towards an aussie stock V.



How do you like your III? I have slightly trembling hands so i figure the IS in the IV is the way to go. But i like samples i see from III's. They are also a bit easier to find and cheaper.

Great pics in this thread. Im very keen to get a Grd. Possibly one of the ccd models. maybe its imagination but it feels like the III and IV have gone up in asking price over recent months. Relative to the V.
