K-5 tested in this week's AP

There's a test of the K-5 in the issue of Amateur Photographer for Saturday 15th January. I haven't read it yet, but will pass on anything of note when I get the chance.

I downloaded it as a torrent. It's a pretty average review. The reviewer is totally focused on the viewfinder being too dim for him, gives it 8 out of 10 on everything but the overall where it got 9-10 (how does that work). I'm guessing the guy spends way to much time reviewing cameras and can't really remember the difference between them.

Is he comparing it against FF or MF cameras?
The Pentax APS-C cams have fairly bright viewfinders...especially compared to Canon...
