I like that someone mentioned the K-30 being ~$500 now. Seems strange that they'd even mention the K-5.

The comments on these articles and replies by the editors are the most fun.

The correct answer for the article would have been :

Pentax K5, Pentax K30, Pentax K50, Pentax K500, Pentax K01;

the other brands can pick up the other 5 empty slots

poster Guidenet has a good answer :
They choose by order of sales volume. Pentax gets just one. K5 or K30? They chose the first. Nikon and Canon both get two. Samsung is not relevant. Zero. See how it works. If Pentax increases market share, they might get two next year, and it has nothing to do with Amazon. ;-)

I'd buy him a beer.

I think all of the cameras on the list are deserving.

The Canon 60D stands out as the one that really only made it because of its low closeout price. All the other models have been worthy from the time they were launched. But the 60D offers a great deal on a mediocre camera, if such a thing is possible!

What got my attention was this:

Pentax is definitely one of the 'cult' brands of the camera world - those who have shot with one are diehards until the end.

What/when is 'the end'

Well a nice set, and with all off these camera's you can make descent images.

I already saw that list too - I felt that the k5ii should be there instead of the k5, since you can get it without a lens for under a grand. They included the oly for the same reason... But, frankly, I'm happy that even the k5 made it there.
