Pentax

One of the highlights of the show is the first public outing for the latest addition to Pentax's digital SLR lineup, the K10D, with 10 megapixels, CCD-shift image stabilization and dust reduction.

I must admit, I have about the same feeling.

We all know Phil likes Nikon but I am surprised by the general tendency used in the Canon report. Apparently nice but some stabs:

Canon is making a lot of noise about its new face detection AF/AE system (we can confirm it works well with beautiful models, not yet sure how it works with uglier faces).

(on a sidenote, Phil also mentions pretty women i the sigma report. isn;t he supposed to report on cameras for us instead of lookiing for pretty women??? And if he does, why not show them to us???)

Finally there are printers. A lot of printers. So many printers that we literally lost count. This is not a company that wants to be accused of missing a niche in the printer market.

Seems rather harsh, even for Canon...ooops....
