Anyone take this dude seriously?

YouTube - Nikon D7000: Discussing DPReview's Pros and Cons from their D7000 Review

"You agree with all the Pro's and disagree with all the Con's. Sounds like a D7000 fan boy or it seems as if it is a paid review for Nikon." - KVSKPrasad

Couldn't agree more, seems like a perfect camera?
All these years later I was just wondering about this guy. Just found out he committed suicide recently. Someone blamed part of the reason on haters on YouTube. There is no good reason to commit suicide. Find your purpose in life.

I sure hope that is not true. Nobody should ever find suicide their only option for escape.
Nevertheless, I watched many of his vids and that guy was incredibly defensive and full of insecurity as he tried to defend his beloved Nikon brand.

That is why I thought making photography videos wasn't his purpose in life. He was to bias in our opinions.

Actually I have both cameras. I bought the Nikon D7000 last year, because I have a bunch of old Nikkor manual lenses that have been sitting on the shelf. Both cameras are great cameras, but if I could only keep one, I would have to go with my Pentax K5 IIs. To me its a simpler camera to use and the features fit better with my style of shooting(whatever that is ?) . The Pentax images come out of the camera a little bit more saturated, clearer, with better colors than the Nikon. I had to change the Picture Style on the Nikon to "Vivid" then boost the Saturation and Contrast by a couple of notches just to get the equivalent. Shooting RAW the pictures look flat on the Nikon. The Pentax also has better weather sealing, is smaller but better built and just feels good in my hands. The thing the Nikon got over the Pentax is better choice of lenses and repair services...

Have you noticed differences in how certain red and magenta tones are handled between the Nikon and Pentax?

The reason I'm asking is because there are certain red and magenta shades that the 16 megapixel Pentaxes seem to struggle with, to the point that I can take a picture, look at it on the display, and instantly see that the colours are completely different from the reality in front of this, and it's always nice to get things right in-camera. Knowing this, I went on Flickr to see if other people had had more success capturing one of the particular items I had this experience with, and found that Nikon cameras seemed to be the ones that were up to the job.

It's interesting that you seem to be saying that your Nikon was off for the rest of the spectrum - that makes some sense. And I should add that this problem with the Pentax red/magenta spectrum did not seem to be reproducible with standard colour charts, which suggests it could be an effect of UV light making it through filters. For my part, I haven't solved the mystery, but I reasoned that using certain colour filters might alleviate the problem a bit if one prefers not to switch cameras.

When I first got my K-5 IIs I had problems with the reds also. They looked more like scarlet than red. The problem was I had the camera set to "Vivid", when I switched to "Natural" I didn't have that problem, or rarely had that problem.

I've been running my K-5 in "Natural" mode and have been satisfied with the results. If I want more vivid colors, I can always adjust the saturation afterward.

He suffered personal tragedy losing two loved ones (mother and niece, if I recalled correctly) in a short span of time. Any sane person would have suicidal thoughts in that situation.

I went D7000 road after the k-x, wanted better AF. Did not used another Pentax, only the k-x with manual lenses since Nikon can't get infinity without crap adapter with glass. Been happy with D7000 so far, using 18-105 and 50 1.8D. Now I find myself looking for a cheap k5II or K3 to go with my manual k and M42 glass, but on ebay at least seems people think there is a vast amount of gold somewhere inside those cameras. K-x still good, but dark pentamirror for manual lenses is a no go now, used only with 18-55 and 50-200 kit.

Why don't you post a wanted post in the Marketplace section. (My guess is the price drops some when the K-new comes out later on this year).

I'll wait to see what comes up, nothing so far Checked prices on ebay and major second hand stores, but no luck, and i don't think there's a chance other than here to get something. If not I'll sell the manual stuff and get something else.
