Good work again, Adam.

Looking forward to the pro-tests coming soon, by the way.

I dunno, there's something to "K-5 vs K-r vs K-5". Kinda like a salesman:

Would you like the K-5, or the K-r... OR, the K-5? (Hint: I think you want the K-5.)

Done!

But what if I wanted to compare the K-5 to itself?

Also, note that the comparison system has recently been revamped with categorization, and soon, the "comment" field will be standardized to online include info that applies to just that particular camera. Most of the data currently in that field will get its own row.

Thanks- I've now fixed that! Stay tuned for the added fields as we move them out of the "comment" area and standardize them.

This should be in the K-r section. No, it should not, it should be in the K-7 section. Wait, that doesn't exist so it should be in the dSLR section.

In short, this sticky does not belong here in my (not so humble) opinion.
