PM (UK) 5D review.

In this months digital supplement to Photography Monthly the KM 5D gets a 93% rating. The only other DSLR that gets the same (none better) is the D70s. Others got:

Canon 350D 90%
Canon 20D 91%
Nikon D50 90%
Nikon D70s 93%
Olympus E-300 85%
Pentax *ist DL 88%
Pentax *ist DS 86%
Sigma SD10 69% (oh dear)

KM 5D main points:

+ve

Anti shake (goes without saying)
Autofocus
I quote "The lovely LCD"
Auto rotate of image on LCD when turning the camera to portrait.
Low noise levels
Picture quality
Continuous shooting speed (for the level of user it's aimed at).
Exposures
Control layout
Value for money

-ve

Why a dedicated control wheel for WB?
Menu system not very user friendly (for the level of user it's aimed at)
