Ephotozine top 10 DSLR

I don`t know if this has been posted elsewhere, but the Ephotozine top 10 DSLR cameras makes for very interesting reading.

Top 10 Best DSLRs

Nikon D800 first 1949 pounds.
Pentax k-5 II equal second 869 pounds
Nikon D600 equal second 1470 pounds
Sony A65 third 677 pounds
Sony Alfa A77V equal 4th 935 pounds
Canon EOS 650D equal 4th 519 pounds
Pentax K-30 equal 4th 429 pounds
Canon EOS 5D Mk III equal 5th 2339 pounds
Nikon D4 equal 5th 4360 pounds
Nikon D3200 equal 6th 429 pounds.

I dare say the dark side will disagree violently and I don`t know how highly the Ephotozine testing is regarded, but the K-5II and the K-30 seem to be holding their own amongst much more expensive gear. (and the 1st Canons are 5th and 7th. This should start a few dummy spits.

the way i see it, a lot of the cameras on that list got there by way of being good value. take that out of the equation and put things into a money-is-no-object situation and i'm pretty sure we'd see a lot more FF bodies that being said, pentax definitely holds its own here simply because its such a good value

Nice one!
Interesting to see that the A65 is rated higher than the K-30, even thought the ISO performance is worse, isn't weather sealed and all of that...
Probably because of the video mode and fast AF...

I notice that ephotozine have put the K5II as their best mid range DSLR and the K30 as equal 4th. This seemed to have generated a lot of bile from the canon fraternity in the comments section.
Ephotozine has always been very positive in there reviews of Pentax products. They always look at what how the product preforms as against what they are expected to say by the canik crowd.
