Re: Pentax in Esteemed Company

Yes, you are right. It is for cameras that have been previewed by DPR.

Now, my understanding, is that for a camera to be previewed, DPR, needs to be provided with one for testing.

In my recollection, in the past, Pentax has often been slow to get newly announced products to DPR for testing. I am not sure if this is the case on this occasion, but it's worth bearing this in mind.

Besides, Pentax is in very esteemed company when it comes to not being on the header. Neither Leica or Hasselblad are on the list

Hi Guys,

Maybe I'm wrong but I think the "Photokina site header" is for Previews as stated and DPR has no previews posted for the the K-5 II(s)? So are we a bit trigger happy?
