Pentax Reviews on YouTube and elsewhere

I thought it would be nice if we could have one place to posts links to latest reviews of Pentax and Ricoh equipment. For example, here's an interesting video by The Camera Store looking at 24-70mm f2.8 lenses, including the Pentax. The professional photographer, a Nikon guy, seemed rather taken with the K-3 II (TCS didn't have a K-1 to mount the lens on):


Moderators: If such a thread already exists, or you do not think this is appropriate, I will quite understand if you delete it.

about pentax - "wonderful... I was quite surprised"

@Mods, would it be possible to make a new menu page on the homepage about reviews? So its not just a forum post, but its a bit more formal?

DPReview seem mightily impressed with the DR of the K-1 sensor, even without using pixel shift:

I agree, very enjoyable - good humour, good counterpoints to the 645Z with Nick Devlin, and overall a good summary of K-1 strengths and weaknesses

Not quite sure what to make of this one from DRTV. Kai seems to like it, but overlooks a lot of the K-1's functionality.

He has affection for Pentax, but thinks the cameras are quirky, like their owners. ☺
