From the perspective of a K-1 and M43 owner,Hi Unc,how ya doing?

Well, you have some options!

1/ buy the U$ 2000 K-1ii
2/Buy the U$1700 K-1
3/Buy a used K-1 and a new Oly omd10 mk iii(around U$2000)
4/wait for next Apsc dual card Pentax.

5/ none of the above,stay as you are.

Theres merit in all 5 options, 3 is best because the Oly is outstanding as is a used K-1 which can be upgraded.

You have enough glass for FF,once you work out what you like on it you can move some on and bring some in(28-105 is excellent).

Fuji XT-2 vs Pentax K3II for Portraits

Yes, with around 15 different ones to choose from theres lots of "looks".The ability of one shutter press and 3 jpgs being processed in camera is also a neat feature.



Yes, around 50% of survey respondents on PF shoot raw only(last time i looked) as opposed to 22% in a survey on the main Fuji forum.

Before i bought into the Fuji system,i read their forum for around 18 months.Many comments about PP went along the lines of "I tried to match the Jpg and found i couldnt".A lot of people also commented that they bought into Fuji for exactly that reason.Personally,i havent shot a Raw on any of the 3 Fuji bodies i own.It is certainly one of the reasons i use their cameras.Every digital camera has a jpg engine,some use it and some dont.I shoot Raw and Jpeg with all the Pentax bodies.

It depends on the lens, watch all the youtubes.It works but may be limited to certain situations.Theres a cheaper adapter that piggybacks the TAP firmware(its a direct copy).

Sony native lenses costalotta if you want the good ones but you can probably get by with some basic ones.The 24-105 f4 has just won an award and it covers wide to short telephoto.

Yes, I'm sure RI have been listening to K3 users for a while,the discontinuance of the K3ii has significance too.It might be the next "flagpost"(they sit on top of a ship) wont be too long.RI havent been very direct at providing information until development is near complete.

Six months(Photokina), we may have some more info ?...Other companies leaks are indicating they have new stuff,so RI may even beat them to an announcement.





Thats one way of interpreting a statement,however another is...its underway and its finished when its finished and to as high standard.

Another company stated recently in and interview that when they develop a new body, they listen to their customers for a year,then it takes another year to develop the body.So a 2 year development, then they were asked about lenses and said "that takes longer".Sigma have publicly stated that their glass is usually a 3 year project.

Well,it can be better than native glass.I read a comment of a lady who switched from Canon to $$$ony.She adapted her Canon lenses and reported faster AF.Probably her Canon body was an older model.The AF adapters are progressively updated by firmware on a regular basis too.




Ha Ha Ha, well with the progress of the tech i cant help but be excited.I look at all the new stuff and think IF it can be of benefit to me,for what i do.








Thats what i said....nothing about an A9 killer.....Fuji AF is already fast with Xtrans3, a new stacked sensor and processor will improve that for sure.WE dont know to what extent yet....Framerate of the A9 is the speediest at this stage(for a FF)...Xtrans 3 does 14 with ES,its safe to assume than Xtrans 4 could/should be faster.

Yes, that glass and Canons adapts VERY well to the Fuji bodies.Native Fuji glass ranges from excellent to superb as well.

What you have to understand is Fujis first ILCs came in 2012,they were different but not quite near a Dslr standard back then,but they have certainly improved.$$$ony is similar.



Oh,...so on assumption you have already determined that it wont compete?....Whats the basis of that statement?..I'd suggest you wait and see what device actually comes to market.Details are very sketchy right now.

Weddings?...My my,why on earth bring that subject up...speed isnt a requirement, SILENT shutter can be and a stacked sensor does that pretty well,judging from the A9 performance.Even the original 5D is a highly competent wedding camera(3fps with 17 raw buffer).

Now, i dont know exactly what is coming,but indications are what ive listed so far, hence "speculation" in the thread name.

So far the strong rumours are

* 26mp stacked sensor(Xtrans4)
*no IBIS
*new processor

So slight upgrade in resolution,FAST AF,should rival the A9...of course it will shoot 4K video with F-log to SD(thats a new firmware to XT2).Probably a few more bells and whistles?
