aekn: These Canon reviews with real world comparisons are great validation for those with "aging" technology like that of the Nikon D7000.
I guess investing in a new D7000 for $525 right now isn't such a bad move, from an image quality standpoint.
That's why I just bought 3 of them!!

aekn: As long as Canon (and its incompetence) is around, Richard's business should thrive!
Now we just need to get Richard the startup funds to build a sensor for Canon and they'd be all set.

We're contemplating full frame...unless we can make it in a million colors. Then it's a no brainer!
So wrong! So PENTAX!
NeilJones: Wow, great video specs but NO TILTING SCREEN! Fail!!
Fail? So everyone needs a tilting screen?
Paks: So wheres the review DP REVIEW?
@40daystogo...Sorry, that was sarcasm. Glad to hear it's coming Jeff!!
A fair review indeed, if anything a bit generous given the fact that image quality and ergonomics seem worse to me than the G1 X I loved so much.
I don't see the benefit to the macro setting if the images are often fuzzy, even with a small aperture.
But hey, at least it has an expensive add-on EVF and wifi built in. Yay.
Greg VdB: I heard a rumor that a subtle name-change is imminent:www.d-preview.com...
Richard - even picking it up for the first time would give you a leg up on Ken Rockwell...
So...look at the first image of the DPR "Hands On" report. Once you get the hood and EVF attached, and extend the flash, how is this easier to use than a mirrorless ILC?
All we needed was a slightly up-sized G12 or a refined G1 X classic. I can't believe I had my hopes up for this monstrosity.
justmeMN: As someone who owned a Pentax film-SLR, it's sad to see what the company has become. The company was sold, and resold, and doesn't have much of a future. In 2010 they had a whopping 1.5% worldwide market share, and it's probably even worse now.
It's sad to see these types of uninformed posts. Companies being sold and re-sold are called "today's economy". What does it matter what market share they have as long as the company is profitable (one of the few that are today)? If you're a consumer, product features, quality, price/performance ratio, and accessibility (even if only online) should be mostly what matters.
I'm proud of you! Nuff said.
DPReview...you may want to correct the interview link to be from John Carlson, definitely not to be confused with John(ny) Carson....
Pentax took the leap from making a ridulously worthless white press-on body cap, to making an equally worthless lens that actually looks like it would make a good body cap. Go figure.
limlh-what's your idea of a better camera and why?
