Also, image cropping function is a great feature for this camera because the DA Limited lenses even in the APS-C format for Pentax are fantastic. Looks like it’s compact like the D750, chances are this might be more rugged, better weathersealed and cheaper than the D750.
I really don’t see the point in having the best low-light performance (K5) when your camera struggles to focus in such low light.
The flash system is a joke: in 16 consecutive shots in P-TTL mode, the K-5 IIs with the AF-540 has given me amazingly different results in every shot. I would guess $2.5-3k, though considering how they price the 645z, maybe right in line with the D750. I think that they will use 36 because is a sensor that is affortable and that they had time to stury and to squeeze it..
The new Sony 50 Mp FF sensor launching next week is an obvious choise for the first Pentax FF. If they are truly planning on releasing the finished product by end of 2015, then there is no way of avoiding the 50MP Sony sensor. The 50 Mp sensor wont be alone, but i think its the obvious choise for the first FF camera.
I thought Pentax would go FF mirrorless since there is only Sony and also because they would do so before Canikon. I don’t really get the point you are trying to make but I have the feeling you are trying to convince me of something despite not saying anything that supports your claim.
I can’t believe that Samyang is a bigger company than Ricoh so they can introduce so many more lenses than Pentax in a far shorter time. If Ricoh needs to amp their lens game, they should buy a company like Tokina (they have been rebranding Pentax lenses for a quite while) and assign lens production to them.
I cant see a notable overhang, but i see a large prism probably meaning an unusually large view in the finder.
I would do something as simple as the idea of extender in the cameras because the effect they gave are purely awesome and to be honest nothing can be done quite the same way as something that could be honorably done. The Compact Zoom CZ.2 lens is a perfect complement to the smaller, lighter HD video and cine cameras introduced in the last year. The Compact Zoom CZ.2 lenses feature an 18-blade aperture, which creates a round iris opening and a natural, out of focus rendition. More compact zoom lenses also made in Germany with additional focal lengths will be announced during the course of this year.
During the NAB Trade Show in Las Vegas from April 16-19, 2012, Carl Zeiss will present three new Super Speed lenses. Or do they share the same optical formula as the ZF2 and ZE 35, 50 and 85 mm F1.4 and have just got new casings for videofilming? As for their line of still lenses for DSLRs, they pretty much compete with the price of on brand pro lenses, and in some cases are less expensive.
Still disappointed that after all the buzz or perhaps hype over the Canon EOS 1D C and C 500 there are no demo videos to be seen showing actual footage from either of them. I saw a review of the new Sony 4K 120fps camera with impressive footage, but nothing from either of the 2 newly announced Canons. The camera has a 5 axis, 5 stops CIPA rated in camera stabilizer which means you can use it with any lenses attached to the camera. The camera Astro tracer mode which uses the in built GPS modul to compensate star trails in long exposure. Pentax SAFOX 12 AF autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, 33 focus points (including 25 cross-type sensors). The camera has 33 autofocus points totally, out of which 25 all cross-type autofocus sensors.
The buttons are properly placed, each function is easily accessed, the camera has a premium feel. The camera has No built in flash unit, but there is a possibility to connect external flashes as well. There is no information about the shutter lifespan, usually 150,000 actuations or more for such cameras are the designed level, but no warranty on that one.
The camera can make 4.5 frames per second in burst mode in Full resolution, in Dx mode 6 frames. The camera has a live view feature, which means a camera can be used with the back LCD in the same manner, as we would use a compact camera. The camera has plenty of scene modes to choose from: Night, landscape, portrait, snow, sport, beach high key, low key. According to Pentax the camera can be used between -10 and 40 degree Celsius or (14 104 Fahrenheit).
The price of the new Pentax K-1 is 1899 USD which is quite competitive, say only the 36.2 MP sensor in it.
As I already mentioned earlier today, a prototype will be on display at at he CP+ show next week. More lenses and accessories will be released in the future for the upcoming full frame camera. The system has its limitations for sure, but I get pretty consistent bounce results on the k3.


Sony 16 Mp FF should still be in production, and i guess the 24 Mp will be replaced by 32 Mp. But Pentax was never a mass market camera, so maybe it’s ok to play the cards this way, nonetheless it would had been interesting to see them competing on FF mirrorless market. Sony is far from providing the same durability, reliability, ruggedness, etc like Pentax, so that part is missing in the FF mirrorless market and exactly because Pentax doesn’t have the same budget as Canikon they should invest in this newborn market, because they should do so BEFORE Canikon.
So why not take this opportunity to invest in in this market that lacks exactly what Pentax is known for and that offers so much potential instead of the DSLR market that is dominated by Canikon and soon enough even them will make a move towards mirrorless? But I dropped Pentax long ago because could not wait that long for them to compete with Nikon (D700 is still one of greatest cameras of all times, by the way) – no optics, no FF, no accessories, no views for future. Maybe I got much more good shots from it than from Canon (I used analog top MZ-S and digital K20), but in both models AF was just terrible. I really liked my Pentax system (I still keep my LX – a camera to take to war, if needed), but I really dislike their strategy, which is quite much a failure.
Why don’t you share the .stl file, so we can print our own and give feedback on the layout?
I mean that’s what I have always loved about Pentax, its a camera for someone who wants to go Manual all the way. According to customer requests it is the first compact zoom lens of its kind with interchangeable mount and full frame capturing capability.
Especially when used with Steadicam systems, the weight of the lens and camera becomes a critical factor. As with the rest of the Compact Prime CP.2 family, the cine-style housing with gearing allows the attachment of any standard follow-focus system. This helps to limit the need for artificial light, delivering more natural looking scenes with less effort and expense.
During the medieval-looking filming of two actors, the faster aperture was particularly effective by using lighting accents in the form of torchlight. The standard cine-style housing with gearing allows the attachment of any standard follow-focus system. I saw a vid of a Canon rep showing off the gear at NAB but nothing to show what said cameras can actually record. No other FF cameras has this in-camera stabilizer, other manufacturers like to charge extra for their stabilized lenses. The camera also has a super resolution mode which combines multiple frames to have the best possible resolution of the final image. Most Pentax lenses can be used with the camera, most of them in Dx mode, there are few new lenses, but in the future the goal I think to sell many lenses.
The camera automatically select crop mode with Dx lenses, but can be used them in FX mode as well. Most entry level cameras (like Nikon d3xxx and Nikon d3xxx cameras) only usually has one dial. The camera has newest DIGIC6 image processor, and has a high speed autofocus modul with 31 autofocus points. But what worries me is the AF-system they have if it will compete with the 51-AF point of the D750 which is known to work amazing in low light. But seriously, both Olympus and Pentax are behind in many categories, but in EITHER case, there will be fans that don’t acknowledge the limitations. There’s no way Pentax will release a brand new camera line wrapped around a discontinued sensor???? I think that is a smart move, and very welcome for me since i have lots of FF K-mount lenses. By using the interchangeable mounts for PL, EF, F, MFT and E, the Compact Zoom CZ.2 lens can be easily adapted to numerous camera systems and ensures compatibility with future cameras as technology changes. Like the other Compact Prime CP.2 lenses, the new Super Speed lenses cover a full-frame sensor format and are equipped with the interchangeable lens mount system for use with a variety of cameras ranging from HDSLR to professional cinema cameras. The Super Speed name has a long history at Carl Zeiss and these new lenses are a fitting tribute to their legacy”. A long, 300 degree focus rotation and smooth action provides fine control, which is especially important given the shallow depth-of-field when using these lenses at wide open aperture. Disclosure: PR is sponsored by companies and affiliate partners that display various advertising banners and links (see our Privacy Policy). In an age when all photo websites most popular phrase is mirrorless it is a bold move from Pentax. Some reviews compare it to Middle format sensors and conclude this sensor is very good even against middle format sensors. The camera has a zoom range of 24-100mm and has built-in natural density filter as well as wifi and NFC connectivity.
The Carl Zeiss T* anti- reflection coating ensures the maximum contrast and color rendition by minimizing stray light and ghosting within the lens.

The new camera has many interesting features, seems Pentax puts everything in this camera which he can. As far as image quality goes, the Nikon D3200 delivers stunning results from such a small and inexpensive package. The Compact Zoom CZ.2 delivers flare-free results and it has no focus shift over the whole zoom range.

While I continue to tout the Sony RX-100 (read our review of that camera), which is far and away the best point and shoot on the market, its quality isn’t as good as the Nikon D3200, nor is it as inexpensive. Even in conditions that aren’t quite perfect, it rivals my Nikon D600 (read our full review of this camera).
Thanks to its huge 24.2 MP resolution, the D3200 can capture great detail, which will allow for huge prints (this will actually be overkill for most users). This is where the camera’s dynamic range and high ISO performance come into play, and the Nikon D3200 is no slouch in this regard.
Now, these higher ISOs are far from perfect, and don’t even come close to rivaling the high ISO shots I can capture with my Nikon D600, but for an entry level camera, I was impressed. I took a couple of shots at ISO 6400, but I don’t think those are of acceptable quality.
Few real world photographers are using ISO 6400 in bright sunlight, so I don’t think these tests have much value.
Besides just general image sharpness, these are two of the big things that separate point and shoot cameras from DSLRs. When editing these photos, I was shocked at just how much highlight detail I was able to recover. Even entry level DSLRs have always been able to pull some detail out of shadows, but usually even the slightest highlight recovery on entry level models has resulted in overly grey areas that should be white. That qualification is also done as a bit of a reminder that at the end of the day, this is still only an entry level DSLR.
In fact, I’d hazard a guess that 95% of DSLR users will never need more than an entry level DSLR user provides. The advanced features of a higher end DSLR are largely only useful if you understand how to use them, anyway.If you are one of the 5% who really wants to pursue photography as a hobby (or more than a hobby), I would think long and hard about the D3200. Entry level DSLRs can be a good place for budding photographers to learn and then resell once they outgrow them.
They’re also great if you have a limited budget, which is much better spent on lenses. My critical distinction is whether or not a camera can fit in my pocket (which is why I love the Sony RX-100).
These entry level models have come really far since the Nikon D40 that I used to learn photography, to the point where you aren’t really handcuffed when using one of the entry level Canon or Nikon DSLRs.
This makes it great for taking to Walt Disney World or Disneyland, as it can easily be tossed in a backpack or carried all day without causing any real inconvenience.
Just make sure it suits your needs (and future growth) before buying it!If you do want to purchase this lens–or any other photography equipment–please use the Amazon links here (like this one). Reply Albertha September 28, 2014 Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
My website is in the very same niche as yours and my users would really benefit from some of the information you present here. Reply Genevieve August 26, 2014 It’s going to be end of mine day, except before finish I am reading this great post to increase my experience.
Reply Jordan July 7, 2014 I should have read this review before I took the plunge into DSLR-land by purchasing the D3200, but I’m glad I accidentally got a good, solid entry level DSLR. A base model DSLR fits the bill nicely.On a completely different note, I want to say that I’ve been reading your blog since I started planning this trip last December, and it has been immensely helpful!
Reply Chad Marx July 6, 2014 I was wondering if there was any truth to the rumors that the firmware update released in January had any effect on third party battery compatibility for the D3200? We are going to WDW in August and I have been kicking around the idea of buying a second battery as a back-up, but don’t like the idea of having to spend $40+ to buy a name brand battery if I can get an aftermarket one for $10-15. Reply Shannon May 1, 2014 I keep going back and forth between the d3200 and a canon s100.
My husband has the s100 and it seems like it will be easier to transport within the disney parks but I have been intrigued by the higher quality of the nikon. I am hoping I can get away with the s100 as it seems more compact but I would also really like incredible photos. Reply Tom Bricker May 3, 2014 I am a big fan of the Canon S series of point and shoots, but the image quality does not compare to a DSLR. I got the D3200 for Christmas and been so scared to use the camera because I have no idea what I am doing. Just wanted to get your opinion on what you think about either of the lens for a beginner like me.
Reply Jason Evangelho February 9, 2014 Tom, thank you for this review (and indeed for ALL of your Disney photography tips here). My wife and I are seriously considering the D3200, but I’ve seen some early reviews of the D3300 which indicate it may be worth the extra $200 or so. Reply Tom Bricker February 9, 2014 Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to try out the D3300 yet.
