New ShutterBug issue and K10D Report

If any one is interested ShutterBug has given one of the best reviews ever done on the K10D. I think this 6 page review has hit every facet of a great camera. Pages 102-108 and ends on page 159. I hope those who are on the fence finally get off. There is also mention of the newest firmware update 1.10.

I just read the review (American magazines take a while to arrive here) and it was indeed a very positive one. I want to also point out the camera was shown on the magazine cover - the only camera mentioned or shown on the cover (a small picture, but the only one nonetheless).

However, I did notice a minor error. In the third paragraph, the author mentions the camera "automatically sets the optimum sensitivity up to ISO 1600" and then went on to say this is not a feature he especially likes (perhaps worried about noise at the higher ISO settings). However, on my K10D, the range of the automatic ISO feature can be set from ISO 100-200 to anything up to ISO 100-1600 (100-400, 100-800, etc) by simply turning the rear knob while the auto ISO range is displayed in the "Fn" menu. A fairly minor oversight in an overall positive review.
