New 6MP K10D Pentax Model Announced !!!!

Recently discovered on a reviewer's web-site:

“Even though this is only a 6.1-megapixel camera"
So we're going backwards now are we, eh.......!!!! This is truly retrograde stuff so what next, I hear you gasp ! A 3MP C....n 1DS Mk IV perhaps ??? I personally reckon that 10MP is simply too much information for most people to cope with, so last night I quietly crept down to my basement and started hacking roughly a third off the end of my K10D's sensor. I think I did a pretty neat job of it, all things considered so with some judicious use of sandpaper to smooth off the rough edges, it's almost better than new. Hey presto, I've got the only 6MP K10D in Christendom. What do you other folks make of this ???

Are you refering to this review:

Pentax K100D review - IT Reviews

That's the K100D which IS a 6.1 MP camera. I think I'm the one that is confused, Confused...

Click on the "HOME" tab on the main Pentax Forum page and go down until you see "Pentax News and Releases", look for the thread "Australian Camera & Imaging Mag K10D writeup" on "Chako's" post and follow the link to:

(Pentax K10D - Digital Photography Reviews, News, Hacks, Tips & Tutorials)

Click on it and scroll down until you spot the offending gaffe !!!!

TReviews reviews the Pentax K10D and writes;
“Even though this is only a 6.1-megapixel camera, the sharpness, clarity and colour authenticity of the images are outstanding thanks to a new image processing engine, and this is further improved by the arrival of a built-in Shake Reduction mechanism that uses sensitive motion detectors to stabilise the CCD sensor so you can have crisp results even with low shutter speeds.”
Rating: N/A

See, I was right after all, wasn't I ???

Well it looks like some one doesn't know their ass from a hole in the ground on this one. I think the person who wrote the review should do something else and leave reviewing photo equipment to people who know what a camera is.
