  • Conclusion: The Pentax K-500 boasts top-notch image quality, and a pentaprism viewfinder, which is unheard of at its entry-level price point.
  • Pros: Large pentaprism viewfinder. 5fps burst shooting. Customizable controls and noise reduction. In-body shake reduction. Very good high ISO performance. AA battery power.
  • Cons: Fixed rear LCD. No mic input. Slow to focus when recording video.
