Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Amazing Price, Compact size(For a DSLR)& Good ergonomics. Build quality, Ease of use,Image quality, Accurate Focusing & metering. Low light ability. Ability to use Pentax K AF mount series lenses.
Bad points:
What? - at under 400 quid for a decent DSLR and 2 Lense Kit and half decent bag? Get a life!....Well, to be picky I have to say that - For people with Apple Computers, RAW support may not be available (Last time I checked)That'll teach 'em to buy Apples though won't it?
