great for beginners, budget conscious

  • Excerpt: So far this has held up well. Feels equal parts plasticky and metallic, nice heft to it. Everything fits well, nothing looks unfinished/ill fitting. Do wish I got the 50mm lens version though, but in the end I think it's better to have a cheap zoom lens, and find a faster 50mm K mount online or at your local shop. At first some controls felt a bit sticky/sluggish. Focus ring still feels a bit slow, but that's ok for beginners, and I'm sure it will wear in.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Easy To See Controls, Fingertip Controls, Good Weight, Reliable Operation
  • Cons: Poor Accessories, Sticky Controls, View Slightly Hazy

  • Summary: Dude said camera was new in the box and never used and when he sent it to me the camera was dropped before and was cracked on the side and the film rewind lever was bent. Used product and wear and tear and tired to pull a fast one. Becareful and watch out for this dude!
