Re: This review was fine. Give this guy a break.

I for one was tempted by the D300 at some time but
the size of that thing was holding me back, the K20D is as big i can

I'm the other way around, since I use quite a few big Nikon lenses, like the 14-24/2.8 and the PC-E 24/3.5. It's hard enough carrying and using them on a D300 and D3, but using a camera so small that I can't grip it with all five fingers, and so light that all balance disappears, would be a nightmare. The tilt shift lenses wouldn't even fit on such a small body. That's one reason why Nikon pro bodies sort of have to be large -- they must support pro lenses. Pentax doesn't have that "problem". At least not yet.

But, it's good for Pentax if they've found a niche with their small bodies. As far as I can tell, many Pentax users seem to like their bodies small(ish). But I'm not so sure they would like it after a day carrying a 14-24/2.8 around on their K7's...
