Give them a break, they're having to work extra hard to find something bad to say about this one.

I am not sure they know how to handle it. Users are looking for a confirmatory glowing review. The usual complaints that reviewers are biased or unskilled, or complaints that the testing procedure that is used on other cameras must be altered if a Pentax is tested are laughable to non Pentax users. If nonusers read the review, note the concerns, then look to the fora and see users offering the same complaints and concerns as at present; they are not likely to look much further.

Reading comments from skilled users in this forum suggests it has not been a good first month for this camera.

Well, if you DON'T WANT to buy any camera, basing your choice on forums is a great way ...

Some users posted their very positive feedbacks, but that's useless. There could be thousands of these, people will only remember that one person who once had shorter battery life, or that softness that is almost impossible to reproduce in real life ... The only ones that can really say if it was a good or bad month are Ricoh.

Ricoh’s response is more important than DPR’s impressions.
