While it's nice that they gave a good review to the k-5II, the reviewer has a terrible voice for this sort of thing. So soft and lacking enunciation, and a lot of odd pauses.

It feels like he almost slept during the review or unconvinced with what he is saying all along. But a recommendation is still a recommendation. (Though only 98 views in a span of 3 days? sure is not viral.)

Leo Laporte should have done the review, look at his comments at about the 19:00 mark in the full show video:

It's like listening to a slow whining child. No wonder there are hardly any views. I couldn't stand to listen to him for more than 30 seconds. Ugghhh!

"Autofocusing is way faster than Canon"

He said it, not me. Still I guess he's comparing to Canon T5i which is really not a fair comparison.

No wonder the comment function was turned off. A twit who works for Twit.

The best camera reviewer on Twit is Trey Ratcliff and when the did the NEX-7 review last year they had Sergey Brin who is the richest ($22.8 Billion) person under 40 on the planet show his NEX-7 with 18-200mm.

Pentax K5 II review - YouTube
I know a few (younger) guys who follow Leo on Twit TV and really like that show. So any new exposure for Pentax is a great thing. Too bad a lot of these reviews are coming out so late after the camera's release but it is what it is...
