Funny no mention of K3 successor?

Also let us not forget that the origins of the K-5 started in fact with the K-7 which essentially was the beginning of that specific chassis. Like the K-10D and the K-20D the bodies seem to run for 2 iterations before being retooled and a new body developed and released. So we will probably see another model released with a body very similar to the K-3.

More than likely you will get the things you wish for. they are probably concurrently developing it with the FF to mitigate development costs.

I can't stand the positivity in the forums anymore!!! :-P Where are all the I won't buy it comments, the it's not for me, what was Pentax thinking threads? Seriously though, reading recent threads and posts on here can get someone out of depression now!

On topic, I sold my Kr, FA 31, and FA 77 due to tough financial situation. The Ks2 looks really tempting, dual control wheels (which I really missed on the Kr), wr, twist and shout LCD (great for taking ground level shots, I have dogs and ground level is where it's at for great perspective). Just waiting on the video verdict... :-)

P.s. Did anyone look at what the back of the twist and shout lcd says in BIG letters? :-P

That possibly and the need to revamp the FA or design entirely new lenses for a FF as well as revamping the DA* as well. Also more entry level cameras are sold than FF a year, so one has to improve entry level offerings before the "next top model" is introduced :-P

Well this lens backs up what the French magazine wrote about Ricoh launching a FF K-mount in 2015. Many forum members have also said that a 24-70 and a 70-200 are needed for a FF launch, just missing the 24MP FF lens cap :-P. Won't be able to afford it for a few more years so I'll start saving for it now!

According to GoPro's founder, most of their advertising comes from their user base. The only thing they really sped money on is the airtime and sponsorships. Content is almost entirely user created. Maybe Pentax should go this route with user created content.

GoPro has a digital crop that does this as well, but the Ricoh has a sliding lock switch that I think can rotate the lens view along the axis of the body for mounting purposes...

Also remember that Sony sensors tend to score a few points lower then when used by Pentax. Look at the Nex 6 which uses an identical sensor as the K-5II. If the trend holds true, the K-S1 should be equal to the K5II or even edge it out by a few points.

Pentax K-S1!

If a person shows up to a party with this camera, they would be the life of the party. Just imagine the 20-30 year olds with camera phones, how attractive would a Nikon D3300 look versus the Pentax K-S1? what would grab more attention? What would stir up more conversation? What better way to get the name out to the general public?! Many people don't even know that Pentax still exists! I've ran into a couple people in fact in 2010 that asked me if Pentax was still around and that their parents had a Pentax camera.

P.s. If I showed the K-S1 to my wife and the K-3 and asked her to chose one to use for everyday usage, she would go with the K-S1. She had a Nikon D3100 and she rarely touched it. She always felt it was "too serious" for the photography that she wanted to do, such as taking a snap shot of our puppies sleeping in interesting positions. She won't shoot in raw and post processing means uploading it onto social media sites... I ended up getting her a Sony DSC-HX5 and she uses it daily. It's more approachable to her.

The higher MSRP of the K-S1 can be explained by a new chassis that's completely different than the K-50/K-500. It's the result of R&D and that's not free.

at this very moment there are about 1200 "guests" viewing the forum... who could they all be?! :-P Ricoh Customer analysis team?

P.s. I think the snafu with the announcement date change has garnered more interest and talk about the K-S1 than if it had been a "surprise" announcement. Just .02!

P.s.s Dpreview Pentax K-S1 "hands on!!!!!" http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2902129846/hands-on-with-the-pentax-k-s1

P.s.s.s. "The K-S1 will be priced $749 / 549 body only, $799 / 599 with an 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 lens, and 679 with that lens as well as a 50-200mm F4-5.6." DPReview. Also ISO limit of 102K (extended I am guessing)

I think you might be onto something. K-S1, entry, K-E1 enthusiast, but I think K-A1 would be better than K-P1. A for Advanced of course.

It's called viral marketing, I think the photo world is in a buzz, and it's gotten most of PF on the edge of our seats speculating what features it will have. Ricoh is just teasing the crap out of everyone and making us create the buzz. Just my .02. It looks to be a killer camera, and Ricoh is making a big push imho.

Hello PF members,

I am in a rather desperate situation with little or no help from my family. I normally do not like asking for help but this is really desperate times for me. I have set up a page on gofundme if anyone has some change to spare. I'm so close to reaching my dream but so much closer to failure. I've written a wee bit long background to my situation. Below is the link to the page.

Stave off our starvation & homelessness! by Anton Tran - GoFundMe

To summarize what I wrote there, I've done everything I can do and sold off pretty much everything that was worth selling to cover bills, mortgage and food. Now 7 months to go, nothing left in the bank, my family is poor and can not spare anything for me. So in about 2-3 months if I can not pay my bills and mortgage, we'll be on the streets. I should be begin my internship in Ireland in July 2014. Thank you for your time and generosity.

haha this thread has gotten a bit off track. As for Amazon collecting tax, it only occurs if they have any business or facility in that state. As for paying taxes and/or saving money on out of state purchases, I believe that the IRS has required purchases that were done out of state to be declared and taxes paid. There is an IRS form as well, but as it was pretty much unenforceable. Well that's what I remember from my research into internet tax awhile ago.

DXO K-3 review: Unshakeable Image Quality

Isn't the banding issue on the Nikon D7100 because of the Toshiba sensor? I know that the K20D (Samsung sensor) had some banding issues as well. The K-3 uses the Sony sensor and it looks like Pentax took it's time to make the most of it. Maybe Pentax looked at both Toshiba and Sony's sensor and they felt that Sony was the best one of the two.

I remember Falcon Eye mentioning that the Sony sensor is better than the Toshiba one as well.
