Pentax #2 and #3 Best Cameras

I'm not sure if anyone noticed this, but there was a link I noticed while perusing that said "Top 11 Best DSLR's." Clicking on the link yields a picture of #1 the Nikon D3s under a description that reads:
After looking at the Top 10 Best DSLRs reviewed since January 2010 we have decided to look at the overall Top 10 Best DSLRs. It was so hard to compile a Top 10 we had to extend it to 11, so here is the best of the best DSLRs that have been reviewed on ePHOTOzine...
Imagine my surprise when #2 was the K5 and #3 was the KR. Then further surprise followed further down when I saw a Joint #4 shared by the Canon 600D, Nikon D7000, Nikon D700, and Canon 7D.

Just wanted to share this as I celebrate a victory for humanity that justice does still exist lol

DXO Mark agrees as well

DxOMark - DxOMark review for the Pentax K5
"No need for suspense: this new 16.3 MP sensor is simply the best APS-C we have tested so far, sometimes able to compete even with very high-end full-frame cameras.
The overall score of the K5 puts it in the lead with 82 points more than 9 points better than the D90 or the Alpha 55, and 16 points ahead of the Canon 7D or 60D. The K5 is literally the best APS-C performer for each segment, even in low ISO."

and that's the reason why i am still using Pentax camera. i've got K100D and K10D and have been using pentax since the Pentax MX days with 50mm 1.4 lens. ( i still have it and been using my 50mm 1.4).

It is great to see the K5 and Kr rated so high on this list. EPhotozine is a highly respected site. I'm pleased that they didn't fall victim to the usual pressure of advertisers who have a tendency to influence the outcomes of the 'Best to Camera' lists. I'm surprised the Olympus E5 didn't show up on the list.
