Sensor stow on K2000???

While skimming through Steve Digicam's review page, I noticed this paragraph:

"......the light-weight K2000 is also very comfortable to carry and handle. Because of the small size, the image sensor has to be moved into position when capturing an image. This is similar to the way some dSLR's with Live View function. It does not appear to affect the performance but it does block your view through the viewfinder, which can hinder your ability to follow a moving subject while shooting in continuous modes."

Why or how is the sensor stowed? Does this guy even know what he's talking about? Last time I checked all SLRs blocked the viewfinder on release, and the K2000 certainly doesn't hold the mirror up during continuous modes.
