why there are very few review in Amazon

I was researching 60D and GF2 , and got steered to k-30 and it feels like a good DSLR .
but why there are only 2 review in Amazon ?
even little things like 20 dollar video games have lots of review .

There are two theories:
- it's such a good SLR that K-30 users don't have time to write Amazon reviews. They are all out in the field enjoying photography.
- it's a fairly new camera and people did not had the time to use it for long enough to write an extensive review.

The K-30 has only just been released. I would expect there to be a few more reviews as more people buy and test the camera. For the time being you will find plenty of (pre)views here on Pentax Forums and other places on the web. The review provided by pentax forums found HERE is very thorough.

The K-30 has been in peoples hands for at most 2 weeks whereas those other cameras have been around for a year give or take

Most of modern DSLR are similar in every departments. Just small differences from brand to brand. I guess pentax camera bodies are just good for pentax line lenses
