I read the review in the magazine. Except for noise performance, the report was very impressive!

My recollection is that they gave the K7 a lukewarm review, but in the March issue they really heaped the praise on the K5. Even with the noise issue that Jelpee mentioned, they said that Pentax has decided not to have their remove much noise, allowing the user to decide how much noise reduction is warranted. This very positive review can only help Pentax's position in the marketplace. I'm looking forward to seeing their review of the Kr.

Yup, I read it on the plane, as I pick up a copy of it. It is a good camera, competes well against the e5.
