Richard Murdey: I like these results a lot more than the Pentax KP gallery posted recently. Similar shots and conditions, so the comparison is fair I think.

I can't put my finger on why exactly. The Canon results just seem to have a more natural representation of color brightness and light dynamics generally. Bright looks bright, with a realistic sense of depth to the shadows. The KP seemed similar to recent Fuji output in "look", with an overly glossy, flat overlay which is attractive in a magazine cover kind of way but felt over-processed to me.

@Richard Murdey. "Natural representation" ? Boring is the operative word.

Canon colours have never impressed me and this time they look terrible.

Axel Vercauteren: The 80D is too heavy and the 77D and the 800D have a bad viewfinder. No go! Just other marketing gems from Canon.

Pentax K-50 with pentaprism weighs 590 g, 140 g less than Canon 80D. That is a hard fact.

Great shots, great colors, yellows are improved considerably!

Contra Mundum: Nice colors and tonality. That 18-135 is a dog.

Except that the bright profile from Pentax - which is also used here - scores more than often higher than other cams when it comes to saturation. (See Imatest at imaging-resource.com).

Panny still has a problem with yellows, too bad.

It's typical for Panny, yellows are undersaturated and greenish.

Dheorl: If only they had a bit more direct manual controls, then I'd definitely be interesting in the 18-50 model.

DL18-50 has a zoom ring and a control ring!

Yeah, like a manual zoom. Still a zoom lever would be better, I've never liked a zoom rocker.

rsf3127: This is a niche product.

The niche is people who absolutely need a DSLR/DSLT performance on a tight budget, including lenses, that can be had for peanuts.

@Magnar W. Adapter support is just not good enough, on E mount you lose Steadyshot

For the second time I just love Panny colors, especially the greens this time.
Nice job, worth considering.
