miles green: @dpreview
In the conclusions you state "Another point of frustration was the fact that the focus points aren't illuminated in the viewfinder until focus is confirmed, which makes it hard to even find your AF point to know where to place it in low light conditions. "
If you press the focus mode button (on the side of the body) while you are shooting, all the active AF points light up (1, 9, 25 or 33 depending on your settings). I think this is the feature you were missing?

@Miles, but that's the problem with most review sites (DPR not excluded). Every site more or less expect any camera to be like Canon/Nikon. Why not look for what is user friendly with an open mind instead with finger memory and be more objective?
I found the Pentax camera's to be more intuitive to use then the main brands. And no i'm not a fanboy, i shoot Canon, Nikon and Sony in the past professionally, but i prefer Pentax.

gravelhopper: There is not only the undifferenciated conclusions for AF. Also regarding pixel shift: why does DPR only test the limits of the system, going with its photographed subject almost beyond its stated scope of application? Your test is valid and appreciated. But why not also test with really still subjects having finest details? (the city scape picture is not suited since mostly lacking any relevant details. There are many better examples from users and other sites) Why not in addition show where Pentax implementation of pixel shift shines?

There is valid criticism, no doubt. But the sum of omissions and invalid criticisms leaves a bad taste.

the only media outlet? Then you should follow up on what imaging-resource.com wrote about the K1.
They had also a nice piece about the AF: "Autofocus performance was swift, comparing well with the Pentax K-3 II in my informal, real-world testing. (And our lab testing likewise found autofocus performance to be a strength of the Pentax K-1.)"

same size sensor as the Pentax 645D, but a hell of a lot more expensive!

it seems that DP couldn't handle the fact that Pentax came up first in the previous poll, so now we get a new one ;-(

its apples and pears again.

In reply to:

fakuryu: I really don't get this camera. I mean Pentax shooters have always been enjoying the small form factor DSLR for years, had excellent pancake lenses for years, suddenly Canon just shaved a few mm here and there, marketed it as the world's smallest (not really that small compared to the old K-m, but not taking anything away from Canon) but is lagging behind compared to its current peers yet everyone is ecstatic. What gives? Oh yeah, Pentax is not Canon.

ever tried one?
I prefer it (have dual system with a Canon)

I'll think I'll wait for the next serious Pentax K? review, before buying this one. Chances are they will be using the same sensor and so far they had a better result from any sensor then the main manufacturers.
