Somewhat disappointed..

Stan T., Amazon
8 August 2014
  • 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. I can't use the camera in the way that I wanted & that was the tie breaker on which camera to buy in the first place.

Great Photos, Great Price.

Vanessa "i like books enough said", Amazon

  • 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...and we are not disappointing in the least. It takes great photos. Period.

Great bang for the buck

Turing, buydig.com

  • Excerpt: If you are going pro, Nikon or Canon probably are better choices. Pentax lenses are limited and are more expensive. I bought 2 prime lenses (50/1.8 and 35/2.4), they are both very sharp, but the autofocus is not ultrasound. (slow and noisy). They are completely plastic. All plastic is good for hobbyists due to lightweight, but may not be rugged enough for a pro.
  • Pros: 1. Great bang for the buck! ($600 for 2 weather-sealed lens, weather-sealed camera body, 1 external flash, a card and a bag) 2. Image quality is very good 3. Good ergonomics, easy-to-navigate menu system. The green button to reset exposure compensation is really nice. 4. Lots of features for the price: 2 control dials, weather-sealing, image stabilization built in sensor, etc.
  • Cons: None for the price.
