  • Excerpt: I do a lot of aviation photography at air shows and in the air. I have done so since the early '70's and most of the time with 35 mm film cameras. My Pentax K-1000 has never failed me with a couple great lenses. But I decided to get serious with the digital world and did some homework.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Quiet

  • Summary: This camera was mailed from Tokyo Camera, Japan. Did not receive the camera bag, nor the SD card as shown. ALSO, the user manual for the Pentax K-50 was written in Japanese along with the manual for the lens. All the papers with the camera were written in Japanese.
