To all the K-5 owners!!!!!!

Attention to all the K-5 users, I know we love the K-5, and we have great reviews on this forum, but let's hit the and other online stores to review this camera, so others out there that might be interested in the K-5 can have a good sense of how good this camera is...

Oh yeah, by the way, Nikon D7000 got a 3 out of 5 stars review, that dude reviewed it wrote a looooooootttttttttttttttttt lol

That review was ok.

Prevalent hot pixels in video mode are quite wide spread. My K-7 doesn't have it but I've seen others having 1 to 3 such hot pixels, red most of the time.

Hot pixels in video easily develop because of the heat and cannot be mapped out because of the subsampled read-out procedure -- they would require a separate map out algorithm and still wouldn't be invisible due to the lower resolution.

So, expect the K-5 to have the same thing which is simply hard to avoid, esp. as K-5 and D7000 have a very similiar sensor.

Note how B&H says for the D7000: "This item is backordered by the mfr. We have no delivery date at this time."
