  • Excerpt: Up graded from a 20D.Haven"t shot a lot with it yet. So far noise reduction is great. Shutter release is so quiet. Feels nice for a smaller body. Pics are tact sharp with lens that were not that great on the 20D. The only things I will have to get used to are no SR or bracketing switches.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

Pentax doesn't disappoint

DrDEW, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am an amateur photographer. My first new camera was a Pentax ZX-50. My first digital SLR was the Pentax K-10D. I recently replaced it with this lovely camera. The day I got it, I shot comparison shots with the K-10D and the images turned out so much better, I was giddy. It needed far less light to get a crisp picture. I'm still getting used to all the settings and have not had much time to play with it yet, but I am loving it so far. So there is your amateur review!

Great Camera

  • Excerpt: This camera is amazing. I love everything about it. First off, you cannot beat this price. Second, this camera takes fantastic images and is superb quality. There is nothing I do not like about it. Returned the K-50 I bought and exchanged it for this since I wanted something with a battery grip. Chose this over the K-3 as it seemed like a better buy. Haven't regretted it!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Long Batter Life

Very good value for money

  • Excerpt: Is an excellent camera and cheap compared other semi pro aps-c brands. Has an excellent image quality, and very usefull controls. A camera you may consideer (or the K-3)if you want a excellent camera and don't want to spend a lot of money. On the downside, the Auto-Focus is not the fastest on its class and a few more focus points would be better. However 11 focus point are enough for many users.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
  • Cons: Just A Few Focus Points, Not A Very Fast Af

Beyond my expectations !!

Harry Joseph, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I started shooting pictures with a Minolta camera(SRT-202), then switched to Nikon(FM2), then I switched back to Minolta when AF came around and settled on Canon. After years of shooting Canon cameras and purchasing tons of Canon gear as well as very expensive lenses, I began to look over my shoulder to see what other manufacturers were offering. For one thing I wanted a camera that I could shoot in the rain and other weather extremes.

Controls Fit my hand perfectly

BlueskyOpenroad, B&H Photo
2 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have iven my K10 to my son who loves it, and bought this as an upgrade to pixels. What surpirsed me was the better menus and a couple more buttons with features I had come to want most. I shoot in SV which controls the Film Speed and Shutter speed with the auto correct going to F-stop. Fast from out of the bag to getting a road side shot. After buying it I don't really long for the K-3 anymore.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

Well designed, well built and fun to shoot

JB123, Amazon

  • Summary: The technical specs of this camera meet my needs. I am not concerned with megapixels or pixel peeping. I believe in the Pentax design ethic - small and strong! It is beyond my comprehension that any camera body could be made today that is not weather sealed. But there are many that are not. Pentax has long provided complete sealing on their bodies and many lenses. I shoot outside. Where it rains and snows. That's where the most interesting light is!
