mfouks: Regarding my earlier post where K5 does better than the D800 in several categories including overall %. Some responses have been that the comparisons only work against the same categories which makes perfect sense to me.
However, it looks like to me that the two cameras are in the same category of semi-professional interchangeable lens cameras. When you go to the compare button the K5 is listed as one of the competetors. So looking at each category, the K5 is better is many of them including "features" which really surprised me. It is hard to believe that a $1,000 camera from 2-3 years ago is just as good as the D800 so I would like a response from DPR review on this. Am I reading the comparison information incorrectly or does DP Review need to do an update?

I agree with you String. So would it not be appropraite for DP Review to update reviews for cameras that are still being sold? I guess it would be too time consuming but would still nice so when I look at the various categories that are important to me I can make meaningful comparisons.

You might be right AnHund, but it looks like DP Review are comparing the two cameras which I believe is misleading. I think that DP review should respond to this issue.

mfouks: According to the review it looks like the Pentax K5 is just as good if not better than the D800 (83% vs 82%) and betters it in many categories. Is this really true?
