Penta K-3 in silver / black

Having recently been using a Nex 6, I am actually quite taken by the EVF.
It has diopter adjustment (so better than lcd only).
It shows the final image - i.e., as you adjust shooting parameters you see the results in the viewfinder, instead of trying to interpret a histogram of a jpg processed thumbnail of your raw image.
The ability to use magnification and focus peaking to confirm very precise focus is amazing, for macro or even portrait the accuracy is unparalleled and effortless.

The only bummer is that Sony's image processing is no where as perfected as Pentax. In my experience, the K5IIs has much much better high ISO performance than the Sony even though they both use Sony 16MP CMOS sensors. OTH, the other day I was using the K5 and I tweaked the manual focus ring and waited and waited and it took me about 30 seconds before I realized that there would be no magnification or peaking :-(

Disruption does not come from better products it comes from cheaper products that are just good enough and technology that improves rapidly (you know the book).

And I do think that the relentless push for profit in a shrinking market will force the big players to move to EVF's to protect their margins on all but the highest end products. Don't get me wrong OVF's like film are better but will ultimately become niche products.

P.S. Has anyone noticed how quiet Adam has been..? Probably playing with his preview K3...!! :eek:

Apology accepted and I have to tell you that after much googling I can find no evidence that the D7100 uses a Toshiba sensor, there is one reviewer who mentions it with no source and some "experts" on dpreview with no source but afaik it is just an opinion. What convinced you?

I know that the D5200 uses Toshiba but have not seen anything about D7100 in any case Toshiba would be just as happy to sell to Ricoh as to Nikon. And you might consider learning some manners as well.

don't forget guys, that the D7100 uses a 24MP sensor without AA
maybe the K3 will be the same?

Sony aside, Samsung has a very nice 20MP sensor with on board phase detect.
I don't know if they are sharing it but they were BFF with Pentax in the past.

I love living in exciting times!
I am really wondering what pentax will pull out of the hat. Sony has the 24MP sensor, the 20MP sensor and the 16MP sensor with phase detect circuits, and of course the 36MP but not sure if Nikon has exclusive on that.

I don't know, maybe K-02 with 16MP with PD and EVF and a K3 with 24MP?

Where are those damn lotto tickets!

As far as Nikon, I am pretty sure that the CEO is preparing 3 envelopes as we speak...(so to speak)


Prepare 3 Envelopes

As I recall from Econ class, when the supply is high and the demand is low something has to give and that is usually the price, so I expect body prices to continue their downward slide. Lenses, not so sure, they have much longer lifespans.

Well I see this as good news :)/ bad news::fedup:

Good that their marketing dept is not actually brain dead and is working every corner of the company for profits.
Bad that it makes LBA that much more expensive:eek:!

step 1 - how to establish better profit margins = enforce higher fixed pricing at retail outlets (at least in US)
step 2 - how to convert used lens sales to new lens sales = minor changes to existing primes will steer new buyers to new lenses at new and better margins for pentax.
step 3 - the newer and lower priced bodies drive sales of new lenses at the new prices and pentax profits nicely.


We live in interesting times..my k5iis is my favorite camera of all time (and i started with the daguerreotype :p) and i look forward to what ever they have up their kimono sleeves next!

And since I am in LBA Recovery, I will not be replacing any of my 4 Limiteds! :o
