July 22, 2016, Has Come & Gone And Still NO Sign Of The Promised Pentax K-70.

by Anura Guruge


The highly promising and v. attractively priced
Pentax K-70, when announced,
was said to be available as July 15, 2016.

Well it wasn’t.

Then there was talk that it will ship
as of July 22, 2016.

Well July 22, 2016 has come and gone
the K-70 is still not be found!

Very strange.

Today, July 15, 2016, When Availability For Pentax K-70 Was To Be Announced, Confusion Reigns.

by Anura Guruge


Today, July 15, 2016, was said to be when Ricoh
was said to announce the availability of the
rather impressive, and competitively priced,
Pentax K-70.

There are claims that it will start shipping
a week from today, i.e., July 22, 2016.

However, Amazon, this morning started
saying “Out of Stock”.

Ideally they should have said
“Available as of July 22, 2016”.

Possible Game-Changer Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk. II Delayed — Good For Fuji.

This delay is a crying shame because this, despite being a Micro Four Thirds, is, on paper, one heck of a camera — even possible stiff competition for the Fuji X-T2 due to be announced next week.

I had already WARNED that companies relying on Sony sensors could start facing delays. This is such a shame. Pity there aren’t more sensor makers around.

This delay is indeed good news for Fuji and Panasonic — possibly even Pentax (with its Pentax K-70). Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk. II promises to be a game-changer — but Q1 2917 is a LONG WAY away. Pity. Shame.

Is 2016 The ‘Year of Pentax’ With The Impressive Pentax K-70 & Now ‘Award-Winning’, Full-Frame Pentax K-1?

This is quite the coup for Pentax to beat out both Canon and Nikon in ‘under $2,000’ full-frames. Whereas the Sony A7 II is a mirrorless the Pentax K-1 is a bona fide DSLR.

2016 quite the year for Pentax. Two cameras so far — both getting rave reviews. Very competitive pricing too.

The Pentax K-70, as I have already raved about, is impressive. And then there is the full-frame, DSLR K-1 that is pushing the likes of the venerable Canon EOS 6DNikon D610 onto the sideline. The K-1 has really got me thinking whether I should cease with all compromises and just go full-frame! Wow. Just to get me thinking full-frame was quite a feat. So Pentax definitely deserves more due diligence and scrutiny in 2016 than ever before — though the Pentax K-3 (2013) even before the Pentax K-3 II (2015) was always a DSLR to be reckoned with.

Interesting that Rioch made this ‘User Manual‘ available the day they announced the Pentax K-70 but did not specify when the camera will be available!
