I've been shooting the K-1 since May 2016, then K-1 MkII since April 20. While I had great success with the K-1, I like the K-1 MkII even more.

Given the choice and knowing what I know now, I'd go for the K-1 MkII...

He does not need a defender... To be frank, he comes off as angry... IMHO.

OTOH... Guess I'd be angry too, if I'd survived the long march/frog-walk to a PhD in BioSci, only to find myself wasting away in a minor sub-division of the Amazon marketing colossus. Even though I've got a title that should permit me to rule by authority, here I am dying as I'm forced to field and defend my 'team' against valid questions from a vast unwashed army of third-tier brand loyalists. I did my job. I repeatedly proved features never intended to exist, in fact, do not exist, only to discover these sloths beavered around and are using creative variations on these in combination with other features to produce great things. That's not all... What's especially maddening, the challenges from these barbarians spotted fatal flaws that caused the team to completely withdraw and issue a rewrite of the earlier Pixel Shift evaluation. In addition, they actually strong armed the re-test of the main product's AF section when it was shown to be severely flawed and rewrite parts of the report because the original write-up produced by one of my employees was snarky, tactless and misleading. Finally, in order to accommodate, I was forced to adjust my budget timeline/priorities and burn a ton more money than their cr@ppy product deserves. I could go on, but Imagine that...!

Somewhere Rishi mentioned this stuff kept him from sleeping at night.

If the job had been designed and executed correctly in the first place, there's no reason he should not be anticipating his bonus and sleeping like a baby.

My 2 cents... M

Why is the K-3 so popular?
Posted By Michaelina2
Replies: 33

Yes... It's the skill level/dedication/love-of-life of the photographer. If you are a lousy K-5 photographer, you'll hate the K-3. If you are a world class photographer, you'll probably be able to get along just fine with a K100D, K-5, K-3... or any piece of workable kit without regard to brand and model. If the desire is to become a better photographer, overcoming the challenges presented by gear is easy... it just takes some time and using the tools at hand, plus a desire to learn how best to address content and composition.

From a previous post...

Try this in LR (should take less than 10 seconds)...

1. Open the DNG file in the DEVELOP module.
2. Open the DETAIL dialog box and go to the Noise Reduction set of sliders.
3. Press the "Alt" key on your PC to turn the image to B&W, then with your mouse pointer, push the Luminance slider to the place on the scale where the noise speckles start to fade, then adjust to suit your fancy (some like to leave a few speckles to keep the image from looking plastic...). Be patient as it may take a moment for the effect to become apparent.
4. Press the Alt key, again and adjust the COLOR slider to remove the color speckles. Again, be patient as it may take a moment or two for the color speckles to dissolve.
5. Go to the SHARPENING set of sliders (above the NR set in the DETAIL dialog box).
6. In your mind, subtract the Luminance adjustment number from 100 and enter that calculation into the AMOUNT slider's adjustment result box. For example, if your Luminance number was 30, enter 70. Notice that the luminance noise you erased earlier has returned. UGH ! Get rid of it by...
7. Press the Alt key on your PC, again, and adjust the MASKING slider to the point that your image appears to be a B&W line drawing.
8. Release the Alt key...

BINGO ! You have killed the image noise AND sharpened it, as needed to fit your taste. Now, let's get that pesky WB under control...

I see they've added "Clarity Enhancement" ON, or OFF (p. 76), and dropped the "Extra Fine Sharpening" slider from the Custom Color choices (Bright, Natural, etc.). Whazz-up with that?

Just curious... M

LR5 imports it as a fully dimensioned image (3000x4000) showing a centered crop of 2664x4000 that can be further fine tuned in the Develop Module, as you wish. Perhaps Capture One has a bug that prevents it from reading the Q7's DNG properly?

Consider getting the DA 21. Use it exclusively for (say) six months in single and multi-shot panorama modes, work on upping your post processing game, then consider your next steps.

I hope not... The Q7/S1 form factor is perfect for my needs. If I wanted more, I'd gone off-brand to Olympus, Sony, Leica, or similar. Most of my mirrorless friends, once the Q-system's features are demonstrated and they see the output, wish their kit was more like the Q. Also, the new K-S2 is generating a huge amount of interest and just blowing them away. I tell them that there's no need to dance with an ugly partner. It's never too late to change.
