Returning to the reality of the K5, isn't it rather strange that it now has many delighted owners worldwide but I have not been able to find a single expert full review anywhere (apart from the DxOmark sensor review). AP does not even list it as a forthcoming review in December and January. What's going on?
Does PhotoRadar have a full review planned?
Also, there is no sign of the 18-135 supposedly available as a kit lens with the K5.
Is there still a Pentax UK or has Japan given up on us completely?
Its certainly possible. I wouldn't mind Nokia taking them over, provided that the in-focus beep wasn't replaced by their annoying ring tone lol.
It is strange because you'd expect there would be much more widespread news and expert reviews all over the internet and in major photographic publications. I looked on Kenrockwell.com on the off chance but, its all about the D7000 on there and there isn't a word about the K5. The last Pentax entry was about the 645 and WOW at the price tag on those lol!
I was just on the Pentax website and clicked on the "life care" link. Apparently they have 80 years experience in endoscopy equipment. With the "chimpo" craze in Japan, no wonder Pentax do well over there
