  • Excerpt: Bought this as a replacement for my K100D which I still have. Like the fact that all my lenses from my screw mounts upto the latest ones can fit. Not too bothered by no red spot on the focus point as I set it to the centre spot position so I know where it is.
  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: My first camera was a K1000 (still functional ready for a roll of film). I also owned several other Pentax film cameras including a Program Plus, an ME, and a ZS-5. Of course, I also accumulated several lenses which have sat idle since switching to digital.
  • Pros: Great value, excellent low light capabilities, ability to use older K and M mount lenses.
  • Cons: its difficult to use live view at night

  • Pros: Best entry level camera for the price. Simple.
  • Cons: No viewfinder AF point illumination

Somewhat disappointed..

Stan T., Amazon

  • Summary: The camera seems solidly built but the auto focus and the shutter noise are quite loud. The camera is touted as being able to communicate through WI-FI, but nowhere did I read that the function required a special memory card. As a result, I bought the wrong card.

Great Photos, Great Price.

  • Summary: Been wanting a DSLR for a while now but couldn't justify the price of some of the other brands. Came across the K-500 when some friends bought a K-50 and got me looking at Pentax. After reading reviews and considering past experience with Pentax Cameras we bought this one..
