Another favorable K-50 review

This time from the respected polish review site: Test Pentax K-50 - Wst.

Roughly translated and based on the points tally at the end, it seems for taking pictures, the K-50 beats the 100D, A58 and even the 24MP D5200, hand down!

I'm not sure about it's beating the D5200, but yes, it's great at taking pics

According to article K50 has mag/alloy body?

I was under the impression that mag alloy was what made the k7-k5II/s series special, no?

Are they really using it in k50? maybe a translation error instead.

Edit: "In terms of build quality it is difficult to have reservations about the Pentax K-50. Its housing is made of magnesium alloy and stainless steel, as well as the camera is fully sealed and resistant to low temperatures (-10 C)."
