excellent IQ

  • Summary: camara has very good IQ, albeit lacking some of the more professional features. Reflection of in camara flash in close room with light color walls too strong for eyes, partially due to silver color painting around flash on camara. Other than that, no comlain at all.

A great camera for the price!!

  • Summary: The Pentax Mirrorless is larger than other mirrorless cameras but the price is right. The larger size allows one to use the large selection of pentax lenses. The pictures are excellent. The only complaint is the autofocus is slow. Otherwise is a great camera for the money.

Yes, Strange Looking, but a great tripod camera

AMayday "Arteest", Amazon

  • Summary: Honestly, I bought it on sale at a great price and it was a no-brainer as a backup to my K5. Since getting the camera, I find it a joy to use on a tripod, which a lot of my professional work is done on, and I'm actually considering buying another. I've generally liked the Pentax line of DSLRs very much, so it was no surprise to me that the image quality was so good and the menu system familiar.

Sharp sensor great for manual lenses, memory card issues

Tommy J, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera, fully aware of its memory card issues. The issue manifests itself as an error message when you first turn on the camera. Some have reported that it can also happen after a picture is taken. My own experience is that this camera seems to perform best with smaller cards, 16GB and smaller. I see the issue when I tried to use a Lexar 32GB UHS1 card. I have since bought a Sandisk 16GB UHS1 card and I haven't seen it give me an error yet.

Handy Little Camera

  • Summary: It's a handy little camera, for not being a SLR. I especially like the night photos. It does an excellent job on these. The screen is a great size and very clear.

  • Excerpt: I bought one and like it. :) Size is not a bad thing, has a bigger batery and K-mount. The IQ is very good and the image quality is also very good. With newest firmware the AF is good.
