Top ranking for K-5 in France


OK, you may have already seen this, but I wanted to share some good news concerning the DSLR that I hope to buy in the future. The June/July edition of "Chasseur d'Images" French photo magazine gave its "top ten" DSLR list for this summer, and the K-5 received top award of "5 stars" and a "best choice" designation. Also, the K-r received the same, 5 stars and best choice as well (which made me happy since I have one).

Here's a summary of the other 8 DSLRs:

- Canon EOS 1100D = 5 stars & best choice
- Canon EOS 600D = 5 stars & best choice
- Canon EOS 60D = only 4 stars
- Canon EOS 7D = 5 stars & best choice
- Nikon D3100 = 5 stars & best choice
- Nikon D5100 = only 4 stars
- Nikon D7000 = ONLY FOUR STARS ...

Bottom line, as I wrote first in the K-r Forum: PENTAX = 100% success (2 top-rankings out of 2) ... 3 top-rated DSLRs for Canon, 2 for Pentax and only one for Nikon.

Also, here's the rough-cut translation of the editor's summary for the K-5: "The Pentax K-5 inherits all of the qualities of its predecessor the K-7 improving on all of them (reactiveness, autofocus) and additionally benefits from a 16 Mpix sensor which delivers excellent image quality. To date, the K-5 is by far the best DSLR ever produced by the brand: ..."

You lucky K-5 users ... Please go shoot some great photos and don't worry too much about Ricoh ... enough said ... "Salut et bonne journée", John
