FWIW, DXO photoLab2.0.0 says it supports the K-1II both PEF and DNG. Since I don't have a K-1II pixel shift image to test it with I'm not sure about Dynamic pixel Shift. The K-1 has been supported since ProOptics 11.2.0.

Obviously, you can not convince me of the validity of your theory, so lets drop it and get back to most of the things I agree with you on.:)

My Friend, you are very adept at theory but it just doesn't work that way. If I, knowing the pricing condition, wanted to buy just a camera body why in the world would I spent twice as much as I had or needed to to buy that body? I would look elsewhere and never return. No actually I don't see your point. Automobiles have always been sold as an assembly so your argument doesn't hold water. Automobiles are, most of the time. a major purchase for many people and financed for extended periods of time, unless you lease an automobile there by throwing away your hard earned cash. Would you now be in favor of leasing camera equipment also?:)



You and your buying experiences are an anomaly in regards to camera buyers in general, in my opinion. Just look through the membership here Most people look upon higher end DSLRs as a quasi "luxury" item not a necessity As what has been said earlier your negotiations at your camera dealer have been with the dealer and not from Ricoh/Pentax,. How do you propose to negotiate with the like of Amazon or B&H? As a matter of fact brick and mortar camera stores that you can go into and negotiate with the proprietor are very rare where I live and are becoming so world wide.:)

So you're a "Never Pre-Chimper"?;)

Previews I don't do but I do review most of my shot briefly.

I have been using the following set up to review my photos very briefly on the rear screen if I so desire its easy and you actually can by pass looking at the review screen by dismissing the review ......simply push any button. Some may not like it but I have found it very handy.

Someone else posted this a year or so back and I can't find the post so here goes. I have instant review set up to hold and zoom review checked along with Save raw data checked and Highlight alert checked. That way I get a quick look at what I just photographed with a "blinkie display, very handy! To dismiss the instant review press a button and you are back in shooting mode. I keep the histogram for the playback screen but it can be activated in the instant review if wanted. Under the playback menu I turn off quick zoom and leave Highlight Alert unchecked.

BTW, Live View will show a histogram it just has to be set up in the Live View Menu Camera 3 menu.

This is totally amazing!! Surely you jest!:lol: What person in their right mind would buy into a system like you are proposing knowing the restrictions?

I would think that the HP course was regarding commercial customers certainly not retail consumer customers who buy, for instance, a printer and use it several years before coming back for a new one As for getting rid of cheap customers, better be careful of what you wish for, you just might get rid of other customers too.

What would happen, for instance, if a customer were to buy $2800 one year and $2200 the following year? Would they then be be denied a discount the following year? After a few years there would be no discounts for Pentax buyers since cameras last more than a year and and lens many more years and Pentax isn't a speed demon at camera and lens production.:)

The problem with theories like this is they are theories and can't be proven in the real world of consumer sales.

As for those former customers who bash Pentax on this forum, @Clackers had a solution to that, a litmus test to demonstrate that you still currently shoot Ricoh/Pentax camera systems.;)

Set your memory card options under camera menu 1 to write RAW to card 1 and JPEG to card 2. That will save your digital preview plus your RAW file.

I took a look at the Peak Design strap and thought the little string clips molded into the plastic didn't look really safe to me. Not that they aren't, its just my perception.

The heaviest lens I have is a Tamron 70-200 F.28 and I rarely carry it without bringing along my tripod and it certainly will not be carried on my sling strap. BTW, the BosStrap folks say the strap is rated for 60lbs......LOL. Who in the heck would carry that without a wheel barrow?

I just bought a BosStrap Generation 3 sliding sling strap BosStrap Generation 3 Sliding Sling Strap (Black) BOSG315 B&H and discovered very quickly that I probably need some strong camera strap quick mount connectors as I might want to go back to an around the neck strap from time to time. I was wondering what brand and style connectors PF members recommend. I'm shooting with a K-3 with various lens.

I really like the Generation 3 strap because it allows you to keep your tripod mount plate attached to the camera at all time

The sub mirror behind the main mirror could have debris on it which can cause erratic auto focus problems sometimes focusing sometimes not. If you have doubts about cleaning it you might want to send it for service. As has been said the AF sensor lens needs periodic cleaning for the best AF response.

I'll gladly join that group and sit on the front row at the club meetings with you.;) Ricoh/Pentax will continue to make a profit by doing what they have been doing, develop well thought out nicely featured cameras that offer value for the money asked for the product.:)

First of all, My Friend, I read your post when it went up. I'm not taking the bait on your loaded question.:D My answer is I'm prepared to spend what ever I think is a fair price based upon my determination of what features and improvements will benefit me.:) BTW, I couldn't care less about 4K video.

I'm referring to Pentax......I don't give a rip about the over priced Nikon gear. The way I read your quoted statement was that a "flagship" (lousy term) APSC Pentax DSLR would cost more than the "flagship" FF Pentax DSLR since obviously there is no entry or midlevel FF Pentax DSLR . Pentax is the only camera system I'm interested in. All the rest can go fly a kite.:lol:
