It's not actually available yet, so I guess we'll have to wait its arrival.
Best regards, John

To the best of my knowledge only one person on here has one. Why not try a pm to Stan (tyronet2000)?

Hasn't had a huge launch really, just sort of appeared without a lot of fanfare.

Seems like your standard entry/consumer model Pentax offering, with improvements again in image quality.

Great if that's what you're after. Still lagging behind the competition in terms of AF and Video. Definitely a nice package for the price.

Daniel Bridge is reviewing one (and a K-1) at the moment, but given the abuse he got when he reviewed the K-3 (particularly from one member) I doubt he'll be posting about it on here...

Makes me wonder now what that was all about? It's quite likely the people who posted then have moved on from the forum anyway now. Maybe it was all the stuff about higher resolution vs better noise performance? There was some controversy at the time when we only really had the K5 and K3 sensors as the top end choices.

Things have moved on significantly now, with the K1 available .... If you can pay for it then you can now have good noise performance AND high resolution. Perhaps the K70 will also offer that nice combination at a bargain price?

Daniel wrote a very nice two page (I think) review and covered what he could in the space available. Unfortunately some posters were very negative about it, which is not very pleasant when you feel you are telling a group of friends about something.

Well done Daniel for persevering and going on to write more reviews.
Best regards, John

Well I for one will gladly read the new review and Daniel's efforts will be appreciated .....

Now, this new K70 ..... Looks very nice .... I'm going to give it 96%
