Declic Photo France Review

Declic Photo France, April 2008 issue gave the Pentax K20D a Five out of Five Star rating. In all categories it got 5 out of 5 except for auto focus speed where it got 4.5 out of 5. There was also a whole editorial on Pentax Lenses that was six pages as well as a two page comparative between the Sony 350 and the Pentax K20D. The K20D won overall except for price.

The K20D is making serious waves here in Europe and Declic said that for the first time in years, Pentax are setting the trends rather than following them. They say it is the camera to beat. They have set a new standard that Nikon, Canon, Sony etc. have to catch up to.

Sounds good. Pentax seem to have gotten a lot of Press in France, with many reviews and evaluation of lenses, etc.

Thanks for posting, Ben!

I don't know if it is allowed in this forum, but if so, I would be very interested in reading scans of these French articles (Chasseur d'Images and Delic Photo). Unfortunately both are unavailable where I live, so I can't buy the original.
