TCS: Pentax KP is second worst camera of the year.

Their year-end roundup has become something of a holiday tradition.

Worst stills camera.

1. Leica CL

2. Pentax KP

3. Canon 6D mk II.

Reasons why the Pentax "won": uncomfortable grips, oversold ISO, feature parity with K-70 for double the price.

yet, curiously, the recent forum threads have quite a number of positive testimonials for the K-P. So some people like it. Then again ... there were quite a number of people around here who liked the K-01...

My own opinion hasn't changed: the KP is a good idea, poorly executed and poorly marketed. I feel Ricoh missed the point: there is little advantage to making a small dSLR if you can make it neither light nor well-balanced and comfortable. The idea of a more travel-friendly K-3 is something I can get on board with however ...
