Zinnj Jinn: Yo all...just like to say something in behalf of DP.
When they first reviewed the EP-1 from Olympus and gave it a poor review I was very upset as well...I thought if it was labeled Cannon it would of come up as the greatest camera ever. then I bought one. They were right about all, and that is hard for me to say as I am a big fan of Olympus since the OM-1. OK then the EP2 came out and same poor review...then the EP3 and it got a pretty good review. now the OM5 and it is a great review...Dont you get it...if DP review did not push the manufacturers forward then we would all be in a complacent place. Also when DP review complained about lack of EVF on the EP1..I thought big whoop...Now that I have a EP3 w/ a EVF that is all I use. Just sayin...I dont think they are trying to sink Pentex..maybe they are trying to get them to build all of you great fans of Pentex a better camera...

I agree with you...I still have a EP-1..ready to moth ball it though...the EP-3 is a world above it w/ a flash, Focusing light for low light levels, touch screen LED, EVF, and most important a very fast focus...I have a OM5 on its way...EP-3 will be playing back up.
To me The EP-1 was revolutionary as was the original PEN serious was. or the K0-1 is...Just making the point that there is good room here to grow. I look forward to seeing Pentax grow this line of camera's into to something totally unique and amazing.

The EP-1 got a 66...that is I believe a lower rating then the K-01 with its 69. Mostly due to the slow auto focus...takes great scenery...god forbid you try to get a moving subject though.
