DC-Watch Gear of The Year: Pentax K-1

Forget about DPReview gear of the year, which Pentax K-1 was not even nominated.
In Japan, Pentax K-1 has been receiving very positive appreciations, and it is voted by the readers as gear of the year .
?????????????? - ???? Watch

This has shown strong support for Pentax, and hopefully this will encourage Ricoh Imaging to release more interesting products, such as new DSLR, or even mirrorless, and many more lenses.

The 51% looked impressive, but then I was looking at the rest of the figures and things didn't really look that right. I stopped adding the % up when I hit 180. ..... The K1 is still the winner - but it looks like the % need to be lopped in half.

It seems that voters could vote for more than one nominee, then. But it still means that more than a half of them voted for K-1.

It's a readers vote... they were able to select up to 5 camera models.
