Let's just say I'm a Canon user. I wont be using Pentax, but I think they've shot themselves in the foot.
I was at Digital Splash in Liverpool on Sunday. I tried the new Full Frame K-1. Great camera, lightening fast AF, comfortable weight, and very tempting if I decide to go FF.
However, I picked up a brochure for it. It's well written, well designed and at a glance looks good. But whilst the text and the tables in it are crisp and sharp, the images are a totally different thing altogether. Instead of being pin sharp, they are low resolution, soft and slightly fuzzy, though not pixelated. This is both for images of the camera itself, and the photos taken by it.
Don't Pentax care about it's UK market? I mean, if you want people to buy your cameras, you'd want the 36 megapixel images it takes to look absolutely amazing (as they probably do printed out properly) and not as if they were taken with a 1.2 Megapixel point n shoot camera. However, this brochure might well put potential buyers off. Pentax UK seem to have put production costs first when they got it printed.
Has anyone else in the UK seen this brochure, and if you have, what are your thoughts? And is the US brochure any different? Are they as good as Nikon and Canon brochures, which don't seem to suffer from this problem?
