  • 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.

  • Cons: its difficult to use live view at night

  • 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..
