K-01 review in Sweden

Well, as bad as I think the Swedish consumer paper Råd&Rön is I don't put much value in the review but I thought it would be fun to upload it. Just to set the level I'll translate one of the wrong facts. "As all the cameras are equipped with an hot-shoe they all can add an electronic viewfinder."

Pentax K01
Total points: 52
Image quality: 6
Video: 4
Handling: 6

Decently easy to use but not especially fast. Decent image quality. The display is good, but in sunlight it's hard to see what's on it. Built in flash. Bad sound to the video. Heavy, almost weighs like a regular DSLR.

I seriously wonder how it got last place in image quality and that the video is that bad compared to the others.

The worst image quality compared to NX200, GX1 & EP-3 ? Is is a joke ?
It's funny, but each time that a magazine gives a bad review to the K-01(or K5), it's not a photo magazine, but a consumer's report, or a news magazine.
They just don't know what they a re talking about..

All camera's are mediocre, or are we just expecting 9's and 10's these days because other reviews do that. This article won't sell many K-01's.

With the K-01 about 10points behind, mainly because of the video.

Råd & Rön should stick to reviewing frying pans and vacuum cleaners. The readers of this paper are mostly older people.

Nikon V1 is the best camera in the test and beats the NEX 7, lulz.
