Another Amazon review

Pretty informative although it doesn't address some key features:

Well he's not a person that always writes positive reviews - he gave a Nikon 1 star and said "MY OLD 5 MEGA PIXEL KODAK EASY SHARE DX4530 TOOK PICTURES ALMOST AS GOOD AS THIS 16 MP CAMERA!" about it. Glad he loves his K-30.

The Nikon review does not inspire much confidence in the reviewer's ability to produce a expert opinion.

That does not mean, though, that the Pentax review should be ignored. He's a consumer who comes to photography without technical background but a clear desire to get good photos. Perhaps a fine representative of the target market.

Those were among my thoughts on his review as well. I try to see if reviewers are pollyanna or just negative before I put much time into reading lengthy reviews, his are decidedly not one or the other.
