Comment: I'm unsure if I like the photos it produces. The sample photos aren't as clear as I'd thought they would be. Are all photos like this?
Good: weather proof ,100% magnesium alloy body
Comment: nice review but noone seems to focus on the gps accessories that this camera offers ,same for nikon while canon seems reluctant to make one gps attachment for its mid ranged and lower ranged ..only the top level for canon has got ..oo no will have a gps accessories (not yet release)!! i think u want a tough camera to go out anywhere buy a pentax k-5 (best value for money and and it has got an in body stabilisation that nikon and canon lacks :(
Good: The new Autofocus system (fast and reliable), high ISO performance, high frame rate and robust design
Bad: The High ISO-NR tends to "flattened" the picture, results in lower detail in high ISO, especially after iso3200 but still usable.
Comment: By far, this is Pentax's best DSLR and I'm really proud of owning one. There's no major flaw with this camera, just love it.
Good: All around performances including the acceptable new high iso capability.
Bad: As i can work my way around it, i can say NONE !.
Comment: For me this is the best one can ever have in the price bracket, which means Pentax 645D still my dream camera.
Good: it's so far the best dslr i've ever tested..the grip feels classy, pictures are awesome out of camera, video looks gorgeous, colors are very rich, and most importantly, the smallest weather-sealed aps-c dslr with magnesium alloy body that one can ever own!!n dont forget the amazing high ISO capabilities ^_-
Bad: nothing so far.. =D
Comment: was looking for an upgrade for the past 6 months to replace my trusty E520..at first i was eyeing the E5 since i had a couple of zuiko lenses, but unexpectedly ended up looking at pentax's lineups...as usual, most people who follow the 'stream' suggested that i jump into either canon or nikon, but seriously after lots of research and test outs, none would fit my hands nicely or even impressed me to d extent of buying them..this little yet powerful camera offers everything that i need..handy grips, small and lightweight, great ISO capabilities, awesome out of camera jpegs, stunning full hd videos, and rugged magnesium alloy body with weather-sealing..now tell me what other brands could compete with that?im also loving the relatively 'shy' but classy shutter sound which wont even scare the tiniest little bird!believe it or not, i often ended up being asked whether ive actually taken the shot or not!now that for me is pretty amazing =)
all in all, i would say this is the best aps-c dslr to date and people who dont already own or tied to any specific brands should consider this one seriously..rather than jumping into canikon simply because others are doing it, try this one out and let your heart reveals the truth..if i could do it, you guys can =)
