Well, I did read that 'article', maybe just because I do not want anybody shouting me what I should not do. I agree, not very informative, but I am not complaining either.

Pity the poor 60D that gets no coverage at all...
I'm not sure if this camera would last long in the market. maybe if they drop it at $500, it might garner some attention. man, that's even cheaper than the T2i.

other than it's 18MP resolution, what makes this better than the K-r?

Yea pity it, still gunna sell more than the K-5 will.

Hopefully people who stumble upon any article about the K-5 will realize how good of a camera it is.

the 60D is a rip-off poor man's version of a 7D. it is priced just a few buck less than the 7D. unless people are that stupid, it will sell thanks to the Canon brand.

Over on the Canon forums the guys are trying to figure out how Pentax did it and how to attach their L glass to the K-5.
this sounds pathetic. are they that desperate for a camera?

60D isn't exactly an awful camera, it's just not that amazing for the price. A lot of video people want it purely for the rotating screen, which I can understand.

Yes it is somewhat pathetic, but these are the people that will switch systems in a heartbeat if it means just a hair better IQ.

Exactly. They don't realize that Pentax pushing the envelope is going to mean better things for everyone. Unless all the companies get together and decide to price gouge everyone together...

Crikey, I'm not a Canon user, but there are some very happy people with the 60D feature set (videographers etc). It does offer things in that regard that the K-5 hasn't addressed.

Some obviously aren't (previous XXd series users). Personally, I would buy the 60d over the Rebel, especially if I was doing video seriously. Except that I own a K-7. All I'm saying is that there seems to be a little too much fanboyism with regard to the 60d.

Rant over.

Why would they want to attach inferior glass to the K-5...?

Ahhhh.... JK. Sort of...

Aren't the kids from this site the ones that bashed a Nikon and Canon around and posted the video to YouTube, instead of... you know, actually taking pictures with it? What would you expect, a hands-on review of the actual product?
