You do realize he thinks Pentax should not have made the K-1? 😀
yeah well, that was then - amazing what actually trying something out can do for your opinions of it

Wow, what a difference a few months make. When Tony released his review PFers were hammering on him for not knowing/supporting the Pentax brand, his comments about lens availablility, "lack of class" for being miffed that despite being promised a review unit by Ricoh he hadn't gotten one, that his videos are worthless (and without watching it) this one was too, or the just don't like Tony so he doesn't have anything worthwhile to say. All sort of stuff that I thought were unfair comments. He posted an un-acrimonious rebuttal in which he corrected a few errors and explained his perspective on system values, The CameraStore headed off similar "Attack of the Pentaxians" with their sardonic public service content warning at the beginning of their K-1 review.
He did make some very odd comments in association with the K-1 and said that Pentax had wasted their time making a full frame camera and (I guess) should have focused on APS-C. Be that as it may, it is still nice that he sees the K-1 as a nice landscape camera (it is).
