It does not sound as though the reviewer is a serious photographer, but more of a gadget guy. Maybe not.

Wouldnt the difference in lenses have any impact on the blind tests? It seems F4 Pentax lens might have been better compared to the Nikon Zoom

Pentax distributor in Israel is KARAT:
קרט ישראל |מצלמות וידאו|סטילס |סורקים - קטלוג מוצרים
I bought my Pentax k-m in Israel, was cheaper then UK prices and more expensive then USA prices. Lenses & Camera accessories are expensive here. Not many used lenses available.
K7 body = $1700
k-m/k2000 + 18-55 lens kit = $520
K20d + 18-55 lens kit = $1050
Pentax DA 55-300MM F4-5.8 ED = $600
PENTAX-DA 35mm F2.8 Macro Limited = $890

Lots of bright sun here & no rain between May and October

My next visit to USA I will buy some nice lenses - Pentax prices are rising fast!!

Indeed a shining report from this fellow.
Well deserved, of course.

And welcome wally641 - interesting report on the Israeli prices - quite a lot more than RRP.
Might be worthwhile just getting your gear through B&H or the like...

it's better if wally orders from the U.S. than to get one in Israel. I mean that's 400 bucks more than you can handle. you could get the K-7 for 1,300 bucks and pay a bit of import tax for less than a 100 bucks. from what I see, the U.K prices and Israel price doesn't seem that far-off anymore, unless if you are buying jewelries.

Great review and thanks for posting the link.

As much as I'd like to go for it now, I decided when it was released, to wait for it until next summer because I wanted to justify purchasing my K20D, and also to accumulate some better glass first.
