Do read the EXIF data that is preserved, you will be surprised! E.g., the low-light shot is at ISO 100 at 6s and stopped down to f/1o! :-o

4. A K-5 Vs D7000 high ISO quick shootout:-

6. Hollow rumours about a Pentax Full Frame this fall and a budget/cutdown version of the 645D (via 1001 Noisy Cameras).

7. The world's ugliest camera!:-

I have to agree, this is the ugliest camera we mankind have ever had! :-( It is just a hacked camera that is built up by different bits and pieces, of different random colours! >:-|

8. Nanoblock/Lego etc. is not the unique thing of Pentax. Now someone has made a Lego OVF for the NEX!:-

So, no need for the OEM made finder and accessory? ;-)
