Less camera for more money

Teapot Tales, Amazon
31 October 2014
  • Summary: It sure looks nice, but what can be said about its battery grip that is incompatible with the K-5/K-5II models, although the older grip works and looks exactly the same way? So, these guys just want your money. Whatever it takes to get it. Also, what is so great about its APS-C sensor?

Great Images, but Not Reliable

AMayday "Arteest", Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I've held off writing this review for some time, mostly because I love Pentax cameras and was hoping the company would come up with a solution to the problem sooner rather than later. However, now that this has dragged on for months, I feel it's worth leaving my thoughts on the subject.

Lens kit not up to stardard....

William Moore, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: I have been using my K3 for a few weeks now. The K3 is great... no complaints. The 18-135 lens is very good... no complaints. However, the rest of the lens kit that came along with the package was not worth the effort.

The camera is amazing but the experience of buying it from Amazon is horrible.

  • Summary: Here is a word of advice: don't buy expensive cameras from Amazon. To begin with, I want to say that this review is not about the camera, but the experience of buying this camera from Amazon. The camera itself is amazing and I would definitely buy it again.

  • Excerpt: Не имеет смысла покупать К-3, у кого К-5II (качество чуть лучше у К-3 из-за отсутствия фильтра).У меня К-5IIS - результат один в один и пикселей у меня меньше. Погнался пентакс за соней. Сделали клон как на никоне- Д7000 и Д7100.
  • Pros: Увеличили количество пикселей.Монитор большего разрешения.Эмулятор фильтраЧуть больше точек фокуса.Прямая кнопка видео с частотой 50/60 к/с вместо 30. Все! Больше ничего нового...
  • Cons: Цена.Нафиг переплачивать 25 косарей почти за то же самое.За мегапиксели.Ждете супер картинку от новой матрицы.Или новые "стекла" сделали под К-3.Все осталось на прежнем уровне.Все ждали "полный" кадр.

Pourquoi tant de pixels si la montée en ISO ne suit pas

Cyrano67500, Amazon

  • Summary: Possesseur d'un Pentax K-5II, je regrette mon achat. Ce boitier n'apporte pas grand chose à l'utilisateur moyen ou expert. Il reste toujours plus petit que le boitier K20D ou ceux de la concurrence mais surtout la montée en ISO n'est pas meilleure que celle du K-5. Je ne suis pas le seul à le dire.
