In reply to:

awaldram: I'd suggest the reviewer buy a dictionary before saying Reflex has anything todo with reflection !!!! (I guess the sony PR handout started this twaddle)

reflex <> reflect ever !!!
however the Noun does apply to both
a thing which mimics the essential features of something else. In the case the single lens reflex mimics the image onto the ground glass pane.

reflex
ˈriːflɛks/Submit
noun
1.
an action that is performed without conscious thought as a response to a stimulus.
"a newborn baby is equipped with basic reflexes"
2.
a thing which is determined by and reproduces the essential features or qualities of something else.
"politics was no more than a reflex of economics"
adjective
1.
(of an action) performed without conscious thought as an automatic response to a stimulus.

2.
(of an angle) exceeding 180°.

I missed some full stops as well !

So a review being wrong and inaccurate doesn't bother you ?
And by you own projection nobody ?
I think your wrong.

On article Pentax K-3 Review (522 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: After pulling out EXIF data from some DPR test shots, it was concluded DPR indeed did a sloppy job in evaluating the K-3.
In the AF-C test, they have left the Shake Reduction on, which means camera wanted to stabilise each image in consecutive firing like it would do in a single shot mode.
The Conclusion? DPR made a wrong conclusion about the camera's AF, of course. Their verdict is invalid and wrong and inconsistent with results experienced users are getting out of K-3. Truth is the K-3 is a very sophisticated machine, allowing for many settings. It is not a P&S toy.
Get to know your gear, especially with a less known and more unique brand of cameras, and have a thorough attitude before testing or making public verdicts.

Richard.....
From the manufacturer
"The Shake Reduction function will not fully work when shooting with a very slow shutter speed, for example when panning or shooting night scenes.
In this case, it is recommended to turn off the Shake Reduction function and use a tripod.!"

I don't think it reasonable to expect manuals to regurgitate 'standard' functions usage .

Sensor shift SR is now over 10 years old nothing is different in its use than Optical so it difficult to understand why you thought SR on was OK for panning in direct conflict with standard usage of all manufacturers solutions when panning.??

All SR systems either auto disable or are required to be off or partially disabled (true for Sony, Sigma, Tamron , Canon , Nikon or Pentax ) when panning.

Whilst most optical system can be disabled in on plane to allow SR for the other whilst panning the Pentax system also corrects rotational shake so cannot be partially disabled.

In reply to:

Greg VdB: It's exactly five months ago that the K-3 First Impressions article was posted on DPR. Good to see that the wireless control app had priority over the full camera review...

I don;t think that’s fair, this review is obviously written by an early adopter/beta tester and as such has no bearing on K3 or any other cameras priority. Though the K3 review tardiness is bit of a continuous black eye for dpr priorities, givens its status as dpreviews camera of the year.!

Thats life you see the same fraudulent behavior in forums, Competition/gallery voting and many other areas where people are given power to express themselves.
IMO its more to-do with low self esteem and a desire to aggrandize oneself.
Many single person 'Technical Blog' sites fall into the same trap where lack of knowledge of the subject matter is covered up with barely disguised plagiarism in poorly expressed opinion.
As noted in the article these 'Negative' approaches attract attention and feed these charlatans needs.

Considerably better sealed than the d7000 is :)

As you can see some rudimentary sealing round the switches and that your lot.
