"Yeah, but it won't, and we all know it. It's ergonomically not as good and it lacks the AF-S/USM".
Let me just stop you right there. Pentax ergonomics are absolutely the best. Nikon next, then Canon and their endless menu system and buttons located for use by gibbons with finger extensions.
And it will come as a shock to all those people with Pentax SDM and Sigma HSM lenses (K10D onwards) to learn that although they appear to work perfectly on the cameras they must be mistaken, because Pentax don't have it. Well they don't have the Canon version obviously, but I don't think the lenses fit anyway
Honestly bumpy, there is no point expecting a review that is even close to factually correct in a UK mag. They have to push the brands that pay their advertising, and that's basically Cankon. We have to get over it
I know that next month's French mags will have full, thorough and unbiased reviews of the K5 and D7000.
So I'm off for a beer now. I may be some time.
