Love my Pentax K-5

  • Summary: Magnificent camera and lens--I've had Pentax products since 1974 and this is the best so far. Shoots perfect pictures even in adverse conditions. It's a winner.

Survived the Grand Canyon

  • Summary: Survived the Grand Canyon while other people's Nikons were failing from the sand, dirt, and water. Takes amazing pictures as the stats suggest. Many customization options available to tune shooting preference.

  • Summary: only disapointment is that the paper copy of the operation manual is in Japanese and all I get is the PDF version of it, on line. A paper copy in English would be useful to me.

Built to last, it is capable of taking pictures to last as well.

  • Summary: Great for low light, great in general. A worthy successor to my (in dslr years) ancient but beloved K10D and lost K20D. Smaller, slightly less comfortable to hold. The K10D and K20D felt supremely comfortable and secure in my hand, even when going down the moguls on skis. I have yet to test this one in that fashion, but it seems equally able to survive a 50 yard tumble down the slope, when my grip on it turned out to be somewhat less secure that it felt, with only a...

  • Excerpt: I have never been so enthusiastic about a camera in a long time. With the exception of my mental Olympus E-10, this camera blows me away with all the metrics that matter to me. Nice low light performance shooting nature in the shadows especially, and the colors so rich, and engaging. Good detail. Must get better glass to exploit it more though. Build is chunky without weighing like a bowling ball around my neck. Nice control layout. Love the LCD screen too!

Great camera. Be sure to upgrade the firmware

  • Summary: I have owned the K-7 camera for years. Then it started not functioning right. Discovered that Pentax had 3 firmware upgrades. Now it works better than ever. I have had Pentax cameras for decades. First was a K2 film camera in the 70's. It was reliable, A truly great value. Extra money was scarce and Pentax have me the features that I needed at a price I could afford. That has not changed. No, it is not a "professional" camera with a wide selection of options.
