Re: Those are by far the worst images

that I have seen from any photographer!

How on earth can a person why doesn't know how to shoot a well
exposed and well lit subject, with good light (and composition)
review a camera?
The images don't go behind plain pointing and shooting...... the
reviewer should stick to writing about P&S camera's

Capturing time that will never be the same


What the heck, man? Are you really trying to be serious?

Let's take a look at some samples that DPreview have posted...these are from the K20D samples:

Now THOSE pictures are pure point and shoot type of pictures. At least this reviewer's pictures had some artistic appeal to them. And either you haven't been perusing this forum very long or just don't look at other people's pictures very often because I've seen far far worse here.

The underexposed pictures is a conscious choice by Pentax no doubt (see a recent poster's thread on the K20D) but that doesn't mean a user has to accept that. Nor do you or I. When someone reviews a camera they have a right to criticize (or praise) the jpg performance because let's be honest...most people will use the jpg. Yes several will go with the RAW some of the time but mostly they use the JPG and that's what you have to judge is the default. No one has the time to test five or six different jpg settings as 8-10 different ISO settings etc etc. It would take forever.
