Not what I was expecting

RMR, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: Good camera but not as much as I was expecting .... I'm enjoying the fact that I'm trying a new brand of camera. I started with a pentax but I've been using canon since then. I don't know if I would buy another pentax ....

Great for stills......NOT a good choice for video!!!!!

  • Summary: I should have done my homework a bit more before buying this camera. If your primary use is going to be for still shots, by all means....get this camera. But, if you are looking for a good budget DSLR camera for video, I don't think you will be too happy with the K500.

A diamond in the rough. Pentax delivers yet again.

Wesquire, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: The Pentax K-500 is a great mid-level camera, particularly if you are invested in the Pentax universe. I have multiple Pentax lenses from my conventional SLR that I've had for 10+ years.

Excellent camera, no charger

A. Ehrlich, Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I am very pleased with this camera. There was no charger included, although the description and manual suggest there should have been. Because of the bad reviews given for the manufacturer's charger and battery, I bought a different one and am happy with that.

Very Nice Camera

Gene Polhamus, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Received it for Christmas and was impressed with how light it is. I have a Pentax ME with three lens and was hoping they would work on the new SLR. They do. Very thick manual but you don't need to read it all at once to use the camera.

IMTIAZ KALBURGI, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera reached me last evening within 48 hours of ordering it. Although the packing was not impressive thankfully the product was in shape. I am a Pentax old timer. I started with MZ-50 film based SLR for which I had four good lenses. a 55-80mm, a 100-300mm and an 800-1200mm telephoto.

Super Kamera, aber...

  • Summary: Die perfekte Einsteigerkamera. Es wären 5 Sterne geworden, wenn die Kamera bei Fotos im Hochformat die korrekten Exif-Daten zur Orientierung speichern würde.

Super rapport prestations/prix, mais problème de qualité et il y a un hic.

M. Schifflers, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: J'ai acheté le K500 en remplacement de mon K10D, pour pouvoir réutiliser tous les autre accessoires. Le premier appareil livré avait un défaut dans l'autofocus. Le focus était toujours trop 'en avant' et le sujet principal flou. Même la compensation possible dans le menu ne suffisait pas à corriger.
