Summary: I love my Pentax K-50. It was more than anticipated. It has so many features and qualities and yet was a fantastic bargain. I called the Pentax Service Center to inquire about the camera before the purchase. They assured me that the price was a very good one.
Pros: great features. great package with the two lenses.
Cons: you have to purchase an adapter to use aa batterie
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
Excerpt: Despite being an entry-level Pentax, it does have a few 'bests' under its belt for me particularly in its price bracket (actually lets be honest...at its price bracket it is unarguably the *best* buy of any model and brand there is).
Excerpt: I highly recommend this camera. I have used it 1 year now for both photo and video. Purchased based on reviews and features over similar "big name" brands. Still pleased with my purchase. Bought the 50mm prime and 18-55mm kit lens. Later added a 55-300mm.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
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.
