Well, I am a bit more than dissappointed as well as a bit confused. I have been looking forward to this AP test for some time. Richard Sibley has, to my mind at least, not really made several things clear and his comments seem to me to be a bit biased toward the Nikon products. He mentions that the shutter release has no travel at all, but focus is instigated simply by touching the button. Is this an electrical system or just very short travel? How does focus lock work in this situation? Is it held after the initial setting just by touching the button? So to refocus, do you have to lift off the button? He talks also about the meter setting exposing to preserve the highlights at the expense of the shadows, as if this were a failing. He mentions he increased the exposure by +0.5 to +1.0 EV to overcome this, but fails to mention that this was probably when taking jpegs. Most people using such a top end camera will be taking raw, so why not say this. We all know that it is impossible to recover burned out details in highlights, but it is easy to recover shadow information in Abobe CS3 Bridge with no detriment to the highlights. So why is this not praised? We all know that the live view was a bit of an afterthought by Pentax, so I have no complaints about his comments here, I feel the same. But as he says, it would not be a big enough issue to stop me upgrading. Regarding his comments about 'cheap camera' buttons clicking when pressed, well this is a feature I quite like. It is reassuring when the camera is to the eye to know by tactile feel that the button has done its job. I do not think the pentax design in this respect is 'cheap'. The buttons still feel 'solid quality' to me. He also talks about the next model (K30D?) putting these things right. Is this wishful thinking or does he know more than he is letting on. Pentax and Samsung are probably already designing it, but is he sure that some of these issues will not be addressed by firmware upgrades. I for one thought the k10D could not control wireless flash when I bought it, but it does now. What do you think about this report? Does it reassure or worry you? Will you now wait for K30D to appear in the shops, £800 is a lot of money for a 'cheaply buttoned' camera with flawed autofocus and inadequate liveview.
