I couldn't agree more, Ken, except that this is fine *if* the reviewers at DPR apply the *same* fair and unbiased attitudes and opinions that we desire of we Pentax users.
It seems to me that some "issues" with Canon and Nikon cameras are glossed over as minor complaints whereas with a Pentax they become major issues and worthy of depreciating it's recommendation in some way.
A case in point is the "highly recommended(just)" statement of the K10D and their insistance that the jpegs were "soft", where the K10D then went on to win nearly every camera award for 2007. Hmmm.
So, is the hot pixel issue such a big thing? No, I don't think it is and nor do I think anyone else thinks it is as it has to happen under rather extreme circumstances, which are warned about in the Pentax manual, but why does DPR make such a big issue out of it when it will affect almost no-one? Are they *trying* to find some fault?
"Are they *trying* to find some fault?"

How dare you question the intent of such a fine and upstanding journalistic voice as DP Reviews. I am aghast by your allegations. You should be ashamed of yourself. Now go get that "Dunce" cap and stand in the corner for thirty minutes. Oh, and no cookies or snacks before dinner.

I'm gonna tell Phil about this...Nah, Nah, Nah Nah Nah.....

Ok. I will start.

NO My K20D does NOT have Hot pixels.

I find it interesting that everyone has been using the K20D for months now and apart from one reviewer in Europe NO-ONE had reported hot pixels.

Now another reviewer has reported Hot Pixels. or is that "Hot pixles JUST"

So apart from these two reviewers, how many of us with the K20D actually have this issue or is it an over inflated panic attack and the sky is falling again...again.

quit using you auto mode and shoot like a man-uel....

You are in urgent need of a decent unit converter link:

There is suppose to be a firmware fix. i haven't tried it yet
