The Camera Store's Best and Worst Cameras of the Year



645Z and K-s1 are mentioned..

http://pentaxfans.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=149104

Sample photos and ISO crops test are posted, which are self-explanatory.

2. HD 16-85 Test Review (Japanese):

http://news.mapcamera.com/KASYAPA.php?itemid=26117&catid=281

The colour rendition seems different, not that Pentax tasted anymore. No sure about it's the problem of the K-3 or the new lens, or both?!

3. Yet Another HD 16-85 Test (Japanese):

8th Anniversary of This Blog

Pentax the brand is declining, the Pentax cyberspace as well as the user-base are both shrinking than ever before. In fact, Ricoh does not treasure Pentax the brand in any sense nor they do put something real onto the market. There is not any exciting news nor any new products or real gear tests that worth reporting. The future of Pentax is so dark, frankly. Could this Blog reach ten years and beyond when Pentax the brand still exists or there is yet something Pentax related worth mentioning? I don't know really.. But I am not optimistic afterall! >:(

Yet Another Sensor Benchmark Other Than DxOMark - SensScore

http://www.senscore.org/

Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax digital camera bodies are tested, further categorised by Full Frame or APS-C. Unfortunately, the FF Pentax is dimmed out, since there is yet no FF Pentax DSLR body of any up till now.

The published scores do look to be more sensible than those of the DxO results as resolution is now measured and at every ISO. However, the detailed formulas are not disclosed, unlike what DxoLabs have done, unfortunately.

Chinese ZOL Marks DA*50-135/2.8 Lens Discontinued

A quick check to the DA*16-50/2.8 lens yet shows that it is still in production, on the other hand. So, what does this mean? :-O
