  • Summary: Sad, sad, sad that my Pentax K-30 quit working 13 months after I bought it. The pictures started getting darker and darker. I took it to a professional photographer friend and had him try to mess with the settings, no results.

I like the camera

Kelly K., Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: I like the camera. But, in under 90 days, of very light use, it developed some issues. I believe it's from the lens? I contacted the vendor, and they refused to offer assistance.

Extremely poor customer service from manufacturer

Alumnole, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera in June, the camera broke down due to humidity being drawn inside the body by the telephoto lens in the first week of July. I immediately sent the camera off for repair under the warranty -- it is now August and it has now been over a month since I sent the camera off.

Not Weather Sealed Kit - Lens substituted

Marc, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: This dealer is selling a kit using Pentax DA L lenses. These lenses are NOT weather sealed. The base of the lens is plastic not stainless as the WR and the body is much cheaper made. This allows moisture to enter behind the lens.

22 February 2013
  • Summary: The lens they are using is a DA L lens that is not weather sealed. It even of cheaper build that the standard DA (no L) lens. Thus if you use this kit as a weather resistant or weather sealed kit water will enter the camera and ruin it.
