User Review

Rob - United Kingdom, LetsGoDigital
22 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Feels just as small as my film versions. It took a little time to find my way around the menus, unlike other digital SLR's the menus are mind bending. The first 100 shots or so I noticed dust on the CCD which I had to clean. The book instructs you on how to do this thus saving time and money sending back to the manufacturer. All my existing lenses (as far back as the 60's screw fit via adapter) fit and work perfectly although in manual mode only.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera to replace one that quit working. I needed one in a hurry for a class. This was reasonably priced and the quality for a used camera good. I would purchase from this vendor again.

Watch for "Hints" in listing

charlespgoldwing, Ebay
7 October 2010
  • Summary: Listing stated the camera took pictures, but had developed a purple hue. When I received the camera and tried to take pictures, I got a "purple hue" because the sensor did not register the picture. In other words, the camera did not take pictures. The Pentax repair facility has estimated it will cost $340 to repair the camera.

This good value

kenindallas, Amazon
20 August 2010
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera, no doubt about it. Don't fall for the "sales pitch" in the store with the megapixel hype. Unless you are printing posters, 6.1 MP is more than good enough for most people. I haven't met anyone able to distinguish between 6mp and 12mp when printed on a 8x10. There are bell & whistles, but frankly as long as you can adjust ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, and activate the Denoiser - what other options does a photographer really need ?
