Nice K20D Review

I am a bit biased as it is a Mac Review. I am a Mac Junkie!

I've had more than a few industrial designers comment that the Pentax product line *externals* are like the "Mac" to the other camera maker's "PC's." (Just the shape and controls, not marketshare or target markets...)

The design of the Pentax "look and feel" has been given constant thought, not just the features and specs. A decent focus ring and metal lensmount on a kit lens? Plus, let's be honest, the sweep from the prism housing down to the box on the K-series is just slick. Good design matters, even if it doesn't move the most units.

Take a look at the Sony DSLRs if you want to see the antithesis of this.
