    The top picture (with water) is terrible. The editing looks like it´s made by an amature!

    I actually would like to have a white camera body like that. It’s a silly feature … but I still want it.

    I love the feel of Pentax’s DSLR cameras and they work beautiful with manual lens, I just wish they would release something full frame.
