Coming on like a K-1 that's been shrunk in the wash, the Pentax KP inherits lots of its big brother's key features in a smaller, lighter and cheaper package. We particularly like the easily removable hand-grip, especially as the three different sizes are all included in the box - why has no-one...

I have the KP two weeks now. I bought it ahead of the reviews, I don't care very much. To begin with: it's pricey ,and it is not a very big step forward from my much beloved KIIs. But that is the state of the industry: further improvements come in small steps.
