The new 14.6-megapixel Pentax K20D DSLR was reviewed by the folks over at Shutterbug. On reviewing the camera, the website comes to the conclusion that the K20D should be seen as an "evolutionary" camera and not "revolutionary". Targeting the experienced user, the K20D is versatile and advanced.

The website concludes:

"Aside from the ultrahigh-resolution sensor, the Live View feature should keep Pentax competitive in the advanced or "prosumer" D-SLR category. Do note, however, that Live View is slightly different than it is with other D-SLRs. When AF is selected, focusing does not begin until after the shutter release button is fully depressed. Consequently, instead of a delay for focus acquisition while composing an image, "shutter lag" occurs just before the photo is actually taken. Frankly, as with any D-SLR that provides Live View, manual focus is preferable whenever it’s important to capture just the right instant."
