Gizmodo: Wired and Pop Photo Give Pentax Acclaim

Yep, you heard right. Gizmodo comes a bit late to the dinner table, but at least they smell what's cooking in the kitchen. Wired's Editor's Choice for budget-DSLR was the K100D (the article is now online) and Pop Photo drools all over the K10D, in their K10D test article which went online the other day to preview a big shoot out they're doing for the upcoming February issue ("The K10D not only proves that Pentax belongs in the big leagues, it's an all-star player."). The slideshow Pop Photo set up of pictures in NY by the K10D is great. Both these major reviews are glowing, and while these may be articles you've probably already read, go check them out ASAP. However, I love that Gizmodo, one of my favorite tech blogs (from Nick Denton's Gawker team), is giving out some play to these stories, too.

Gizmodo's Brian Lam: "Looks like Canon and Nikon have another worthy competitor in the DSLR range."

Coincidentally, Pentax has also been getting their ads on Gizmodo lately, but I don't think one influences the other here. Gizmodo's views can be pretty biting when it comes obvious graft, which is one of the reasons they came down so hard on Microsoft's Zune player (MS was practically drowning the tech blogs in PR).
