Is Pentax on to a winner with its first K mount DSLR featuring a shake-reduction system?....

Pros: Small and compact, stabilisation, autofocus, in-camera editing options, noise control, build quality, lens options
Cons: Underexposes the images, limited burst capacity, ugly menu, no simultaneous RAW+JPEG, overly menu-reliant, price

The latest SLR from Pentax shows a step towards the future, as well as a nod to the past. Gone is the *ist name, which was never particularly well understood or accepted. Instead the new models will be prefixed with a K.
