Pros: Professional build quality, Top-end spec, Excellent price point, Good AF system
Cons: Multi-area metering underexposes too easily, Occasionally wayward auto white balance

 The Pentax/Samsung relationship has been something of a strange affair when it has come to their DSLR output, continually resulting in two products that can only be separated by the maker's name and price. At the launch of the K10D and GX10 though, the two manufacturers were much keener to distance their particular camera from the other than they have been previously, citing the interface and firmware as key differentiating features.

Both combine high-end specification, a ‘professional' build quality and a price that won't leave you struggling to pay the mortgage for months to come.
