Jorge Bayonas: I will sell all my nikon cameras and lenses and move to pentax. you guys in the comments section have convinced me. wow, didn't knew that buying cameras was like entering a new religion :)
Maybe you can buy back your faulty Pentax 18-55mm kit lens which was the beginning of your crusade against Pentax?
Anyway, thank you for your efforts to increase the Pentax rank in dpreview's "most popular camera" counter.
Rob Sims: The workhorse of any professional Full Frame system: F2.8 24-70mm F2.8 70-200mm
Sony, are you taking note?
John C Tharp: There should be a ~16-35/2.8
There is one on the roadmap similar to Tamron 15-30 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD
PLATIN AWARD for this article!Looking forward for part 2Thank you
fisherman_lol: To DPR Moderators; This jpino79 guy is been flooding this forum all day with his inflammatory comments and you are not doing anything about it? I think if he was bashing CANIKON he would be banned for life. ;)
@Alex Sarbu: Maybe he is paid by Pentax ;-)
steelski: I posted this to Siomn Joinson at DPReview over a month ago. Thank you for actually getting around to posting something about this. Also, This is a Ricoh initiative. You guys mention Ricoh twice in the whole article, and not in the headline. I really am starting to believe that there is something that you guys have against Ricoh Pentax.
Barney, thank you for the update!
Barney, don't you think that omitting due credit for this content is a little tasteless?

driftnomore: DPR isn't nice to Pentax ...1st was the ''blinking lights'' and now.the ''shiny disco lights''...does it needs to be mentioned?
But everything else in this Hands-on was very informative, fair and complaisant e.g. "As well as being *impressively* compact " ... I appreciate the new attitude / inflection.
babalu: Strangely funny capture, very good !
Thank you! :-)
Maybe you should widen/expand the challange to other instruments
In case you can not find the Pentax K-3 First Impressions Review:
Nikon RAW vs JPEGPentax RAW vs JPEG
IMO, a matter of taste. You can fine tune both to do more natural.
Conjure: The 18-135 is a very good zoom lens (at least from 25mm to 100mm) but it is not as sharp as a prime lens. As far as I know the test shots for the review will be taken with a sharp prime lens (DFA 50 macro?). And because Pentax/Recoh usualy includes some improvements (WB, AF) in the firmware updates, I have no problem to wait for the final review until the first firmware update.
The reds were the only weak point of my K-5. (If you know it you decrease the exposure to correct it in PP). It is still not perfect with the K-3 but it seems to be much better:http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/2745065/imgp0387?inalbum=pentax-k-3-samples-gallery
IMO the selection of the real-world samples is quite OK. The detail of some photos is really impressive: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/2744933/imgp0422?inalbum=pentax-k-3-samples-gallery
Dear Nic, you know how much I like my pentax equipment. But maybe my English is not not good enough.I do usually RAW with my K-5 and I did not intend to blame anyone. Pentax improved the reds.

Giklab: I bet that this doesn't come in Pentax mount because it will be released later as a DA lens.
I think the SMC PENTAX-DA 18-270mm F3.5-63 ED SDM is a rebadged Tamron
Will Edwards: It's not in my camera bag, but if in the city in the middle of the night or for sunrise shots, I carry a 9mm, and I know how to use it. If out in the woods, it's a 45mm. And I am not talking about camera lens.

But I do not believe that dpreview had evil intentions.Everywhere mistakes can happen.
