I did ordered it at B&H ... I called to ask when it will be in stock , and the guy told me that they are not sure but as soon as they get them they are all gone so it is better to pre order . (could be a marketing trick but I do believe that they are getting them in limited numbers )
so I said ok :) first time that I am doing it , usually I wait until a camera is is way in the market and the prices are down . but since this camera is everything I ever wanted in a camera I could not resist

any one knows what the focal of the standard prime like on the new Q7 ?

the larger sensor might make this lens a wider lens as a result might make my wish come true .

anyone can tell me how much wider will it be ?

Thanks!

not to mention that lets say if Pentax is only aiming to these people "upgrading from a P&S" (most P&S today are amazing and design for advanced photographers)

but these people that upgrade from the P&S of phone will choose Canon BS that is what they know or mirroless camera 4/3 or not

but lets be honest here.
There Are cameras that everybody get excited about especially recently.

and when Pentax releases the MX-1 with no Hot shoe when it is exactly the same camera as the Olympus that has one then everybody will ask WHY the H?

how come the Q that is a relatively expensive camera that aims to more advance shooters that would love a small "rangefinder style" camera , but has no good wide lens

what is with the design of the K-1 ? and no EVF or tilt lcd

other the the K-5 and K-30 not many of the Pentax decisions lately makes any sens to the majority of the public. and sadly these two are great great SLRs but , is this enough? most people that invest in a DSLR system with lenses are thinking about the future and if they have where to grow.
now that cameras are like computers , get outdated every couple of years

ricoh grd v soon , best news on the thread :)

the ricoh grd iv is a favorite camera among so many street photogs, I have seen some of the best documentary shots coming out of this tiny things with its small sensor.

but again the # 1 rule for being a good street photographer is... have a camera .

since I chose DSLR as my tool I am sad to say I don't follow this rule.

I am going to change it this month , Pentax MX-1, sony rx100 or maybe I will join my friends and get that ricoh magic

if this is how a new pentax will look like I will be jumping up and down screaming , and send the head of Pentax a huge box of chocolate .

if its also a FF camera Pentax will the richest brand in the world everyone and their mother will get one.

as I know Pentax both are probably not true , we will get a camera with a "last season" Sony sensor with a questionable design decisions :) we will buy it anyway put our old lenses on it and forget about for a while until the next rummer

I do not know if its real or not , but this car picture is bad .
I am getting way better dynamic range with my phone , and the magic of the 77 LTD even with older cameras like the K20D especially on f/8 will never look like that

so I want this camera, some one stop me:)

I was on my way to get the rx100 and then pentax came out with the MX.

On paper the RX is better in all... but as someone that only shoot street I know that the look of the MX is something that people tend to react very well to.

The sony has a look that say Facebook all over it , and that always scares people .

Tilt screen is a HUGE bonus on this camera much more then EVF it makes it a tool design for documentary photography.

is that enough to choose this camera over the larger sensor sony ? my brain is not sure my heart say yes.

what do you think?

any way $500 is not that much of a lost and I kind of like the "go with you heart" feeling that I have right now. B&H is closed tomorrow so I will think about it for one more day

Got to play with the K-01 and the Q: My impressions

I also played with one yesterday at B&H

for me the camera did not feel good, very boxy , not good enough grip , and I did not like the rubber feel, it focused in the store quick enough but not as quick as the K-5 that was just next to it , (that is also only a little larger , yet feels smaller? or should I say more comfortable )

both the Sony booth and the Olympus one are right next to the Pentax. and both the Sony NEX and the pen 3 are focusing scary fast , and I mean crazy scary fast . not even a match to any Pentax camera to date .

for me form all the cameras I saw yesterday the one I really wanted is the K-05 silver with the new lens. but its just for me.

the K-01 would be great if you already have a lot of Pentax glass and you shoot manual focus
