Looked at Canon and Olympus but found view finder brighter and overall feel of camera better. Controls buttons etc large and can be used with gloves on. LED display in viewfinder easy to read. Pictures are excellent colour compared to Casio EX P600. which on same settings seem washed out. More depth to pictures. RAW setting best. so will buy a 4GB SD card for it. Bought Camera and with 18-55mm and 50-200mm Petax Lens's for £528. in UK. Bonus Downloaded Pentax "Direct Link" control software ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
