Possibly. Ultimately its up to Amin, but the K-01 isnt a DSLR and so deserves a spot of its own or shared with other Pentax mirrorless.I like the idea, Sue, but I would worry that it would be a bit quiet. I think there are 2 of us on the forum with a K-01.
What about merging the Ricoh GXR and Q forum and make it a Pentax/Ricoh CSC forum? It sounds like we have some more systems coming down the line, good stuff, but these may always be smaller, niche products?
I agree with everything you wrote: that the K-01 has very, very clean RAW files, that they look (a bit suspiciously) soft, that I would probably put them slightly after the X100 and slightly before the NEX-5N or K-5. Obviously there isn't much to seperate each of them.Speaking of the K-01, I was pixel peeping (again) at DPR, and the RAW files from the K-01 at 6400 actually look a little bit cleaner than the K-5 (but also slightly softer too). Notwithstanding the softness, the K-01 at 6400 might be the second best looking RAW files for APS-C cameras, after only the X100. DPR doesn't have studio samples for XP1 yet though.
This makes even more sense.I wonder whether there are maybe too many camera specific forums that don't contain many threads, and when new classes of camera are being created it means the forums either need to keep up and be expanded or become less specific and more flexible.
Lol, yes something like that. It just seems that there are few new square pegs that don't quite fit into any of the existing round holes. It's not really a problem in how I access the site, just an observation. I tend to stick to current threads using the list on the right and only rarely go into any specific forums or sub-forums.Maybe it could just be 3...... Black cameras, silver cameras, colorful cameras......
