Pentax...you won't find more bang for your buck

HandymanJD, Bestbuy
1 week ago
  • Summary: If you're new to DSLR's here's a primer. These are basically digital versions of old school 35mm cameras. Instead of film, they have a sensor inside.
  • Pros: Who else has water resistant gear for under 2k? No one.
  • Cons: Pentax flash system isn't the best

Best back I've owned...

Pilot.Dave, B&H Photo
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: My first back in my newspaper Pro days was an ME Super. Almost got a Nikon, but Pentax was the only one with similar quality glass. Lucky me. Minolta - Gone. Canon and Nikon put their image stabilization in their lens !! Bad choice. Make each lens more expensive and renders my old pro glass useless in a digital world because over 5mega pixels you require stabilization. My first digital camera - Apple Quick Take 100... and many since.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: No Pc Cable How Move Pics

Outstanding performance

Pentaxman, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I purchased the K-3 as a replacement for my K10D. I expected it to be a major step up in both performance and features, and it has proven to be both.As I was about to undertake a once in a lifetime trip to Alaska, I wanted to capture images that would stand the test of time. K-3 RAW files will do just that. They are exceptionally sharp - more so than some of my lenses. I have yet to use the anti-aliasing simulator.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: None so far

K-3 Best DSLR Pentax has to offer

John, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I was very happy with my Pentax K20D, but when I read what the K-3 had to offer in the way of upgrades, I knew that sooner or later I was going to buy it. The additional 10MP, multiple focusing points and other upgrades too numerous to mention are what drew me to this camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

Pentax K3

Chris, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: The first body I got had issues of freezing and not shutting off. Then on continuous shooting I had a series of photos that came out black with the metadata on them. The helpful staff here at B&H sent me a replacement unit and it's been working great. I'm guessing the first one was just a fluke. Love the image quality and burst rate of the photos.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

One Star

Rod Simonian, Amazon

  • Summary: POS buy a Canon has/had a focus issue at infinity even at high F stops At high F stops Depth of field should be almost unlimited and in Focus. This was not the case even in M mode. You want to see the pictures , Buy one and try to do a landscape shot. Then come back and apologize for your Fining attitude.

Different but the same

The Votawgrapher, B&H Photo
3 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I have owned the K5 for nearly three years and used it a lot, so when I got this camera it was generally very easy to get used to but for some things it was very difficult to change. I use the intervalometer a lot, which is now a mode system. I do not like the fact that it makes a new folder on the memory card every time you start a new interval set. Bursting is faster even though the images are bigger. And speaking of bigger, the screen is amazing.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good burst speed, Good grip, Well built
