DxO score for Pentax 645Z: 101!

Very Interesting, seems that there will be a medium format 100mp 55mm (Crop) sensor capable of 6FPS + 4K released soon. Looking around the website it seems that sony doesnt just sell all of the sensors that they make and that they like to keep some for themselves.

Well maybe they are applying noise reduction in software, but there are other ways to reduce sensor noise. In any case the KP images look good, however not as good as FF. Good enough for most people.

There is no doubt that when Pentax releases the K-3 replacement that the IQ will be excellent. In the meantime the KP is here. Im curious how many shots the KP will last will the battery grip attached?

If Pentax was going to release a direct k-3 replacement they likely would have done so by now. They are probably delayed because they are doing a more significant update to the top apsc camera, February or March maybe. Soon after they may release a new FF at a later date to leverage some of those technologies. But this is just speculation. ;)

Well if a long time Pentax user actually feels this way how do you think the rest of the photography world feels. I don't think Pentax is dead and if they are then whatever. Its not like my gear will stop working but it would be disappointing to see all the things that Pentax does so well disappear. Anyway back on topic,Pentax needs to release the lenses that they said they would in a timely manner. A 50mm in 2018, 85 in 2020 and a 35 in 2022 is too slow. I suppose if they were updating the 200mm da* and 300mm da* to FA* standards during the same time it would be fine but they don't seem to be doing any of that. Some signs of life would be encouraging at least to Pentax users.

OK where are my meds.:)

Its a great looking camera and I don't think it is over priced at all. If I was buying a K-1 I would definitely get this one. Are limited camera releases often followed by updated models within a year or so?

I was comparing the pentax da*50-135 to the tokina Cinema 50-135, it could of also been a tokina to tokina comparison. My point was that even though they are the same optical design the size and weight are vastly different.

When Tokina anounced the cin Lenses I thought the same thing as Mistral75. As far as the differences in size well here is a comparison to think about.

Pentax da* 50-135 to the tokina cin 50-135

Focal Length: Same 50-135
Format: Same APS-C
Aperature Range: Same F/2.8 to F/22
Minimum Focus: Same 1meter
Magnification: Same 0.17x
Elements/Groups: Same 18/14
Diaphram Blades: Same 9
Filter Thread: Pentax 67mm << Tokina 112mm
Length: Pentax 136mm < Tokina 159mm
Wieght: Pentax 1.51 lbs(685 g) << tokina 3.4 lbs(1530 g)

Are these two companies done with each other? I dont know.

Great find. Is it possible you somehow got a unit built just for the trade shows? A demo unit that was never sold to the public. I wonder if you just tried updating the firmware if this would kick it out of the debug mode?

For each Pentaxian buying K-1 another Nikon/Canon shooter jumped ship to Pentax

I'm not to sure about that, I think the sensors are pretty much the same except one was made with Pentax Juice and one Nikon Juice. The D810 has a marginal improvement in DR at base ISO which goes to 50 as opposed to base 100 of the K-1. The K-1 however offers improved signal to noise ratio which is much more practical than iso 50 in real world shooting. Since the Pentax K-1 is newer than the D810 it seems more likely that it has the newer sensor. The K-1 actually has better DR at every ISO except ISO 50.

The excellent IQ of the K-1 is exactly why some photogs are changing.

Yes you are correct, complaining resolves nothing and telling people to get a camera that suits there needs is also good advice. But I dont want them to because I like Pentax camera's. If everyone that was disipointed with Pentax not bringing out a true K-3 replacement went and bought a d7200/d500/7Dm2 etc etc. Pentax would be *&^%ed. We are all investers in Pentax and when investers get nervous they get out and buy something else, this isnt good for pentax and therefor not good for me. I was buying a new camera about every two years but its been amlost 4 years now since I got the K-3 which still works, but the next camera I spend my money on will have a much better autofocus system, and less blackout time than the K-3 I have now, Full Frame or Crop. I love the build quality, ergonomics and other features of the K-3, I really hope mine keeps working.
