now i'm not sure if it takes the "King of Ugly" title off the repulsive silver canon bodies or even the grotesque alpha's but it sure as hell gives 'em a bloody good run for their money. this thing has fallen off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

LOL, black and gold. Why not make it gold casing with black lettering instead (reverse the black and gold). For the bling bling fans :P.

Then they probably should reverse the colors of the box too. ;)

Nah....Because then it would look too much like the Sarah-Cuda Compound Hunting Bow. (http://www.lakotacorp.com/Sarahcuda.aspx)

The Olympus E-3xx cameras were pretty ugly.

Haha... yeah, that is ugly.

I don't think you're giving other mfrs enough credit, though. The 5DII is an excellent camera in some (although not all) aspects, and is a better HD video cam than many camcorders. Vincent Laforet is right when he says we are witnessing a significant trend change taking place right now (convergence of video and still photography) and that Canon has thrown down the gauntlet with the 5DII.

Even if there is a certain amount of hype involved, the market sure validates what he's saying, as the 5DII was pre-sold out everywhere, and the waiting list is huge! After a very short amount of time after they put it on their website, B&H stopped accepting pre-oders, and then shortly after that, stopped accepting "Notify me when in stock" requests, as the lists were exploding.

I think that Pentax is beautiful - way OTT though. Any idea who owns it? just curious who'd go for a trinket like that.

Wow.

... you can tell that Pentax image was taken with a Nikon. Look at those warm vivid colors.
