Seriously though, I'm proud of Pentax for making this award.

had a chance of testing the k5 at photokina. other manufactures didn't actually bring anything new except in the compact class.

I'll bet a K-5 that they won't

Hopefully the good press on this camera will translate into a solid sales success for Pentax.

We will see once full reviews start coming in.

People bashing the K-5 and complaining that Photokina's award means nothing in 3, 2, 1... go!


Well to be honest it doesn't. Kodak's wireless LCD picture frame won the Star award a few years ago. It doesn't really mean anything.

Its responses like this that mystify me. How anyone can consider a completely different sensor and af system as just an upgrade doesn't compute. Just because the new camera shares the magnesium shell with the K-7 as well as some of the interface doesn't mean they are the same camera.
+1

I don't understand this either - as if it would have been better to replace the body with an inferior one (50D -> 60D)

Though k-7 and k-5 share the same body (great that they keep that - best body design), the improvements are major as far as I am concern. Don't understand 50D to 60D for that matter; ditto for D90 to D7000 progression (but not quite D300 level). APS-C DSLR type development has reached a point where there is little excitement.

Nice shot, K-5! \^o^/ My only hope Pentax are not going to fade away silently after Photokina, I'd really like to see their future products being on par with the leaders. They really deserve it.
