Re: What I have noticed about their studio pictures...

Yeah, after I posted this I did find and read most of the article. But, to my eyes, the RAW was not much better. I only compare cameras RAW shots...I don't use or care how the jpegs look. I would think they need to send a new camera too. If another one turns out to have the same issue then Pentax has really screwed up again. I just wish people here would not attack the reviewers as much as show their ire to Pentax. For them to still have focus issues is inexcusable. I know this is going to cause a dogpile on me but I think Pentax needs to feel a little pain from their customers. I've been shooting w/ a Pentax for 15+ years. Love my K5, so I'm not some anti-Pentax troll.

I think you are spot on. Dont shoot the messenger. DPR has a large influence on people's desciion and has a responsibility to do due diligence in their testing.   I believe Pentax have produced an excellent camera, It would be a shame if it recieved less than the credit that is due, but also perspective issues need to be shown. I am sure that a follow up review will be done thoroughly with the latest firmware. Whatever the results are should be truthful to allow perspective buyers tomake an accurate informed decision. I will say from my veiw point, if you have Pentax glass you cannot go wrong with the k3mk3 for fast accurate images. Its a beautiful camera, I hope this is the outcome in DPRs future testing. If not I am still happy with this camera, it is more camera than I am a photographer. So I hope DPR does it right and tells it as it is. Don't shoot the messenger.
