  • Excerpt: I've owned the k2000 and k-x and thought those 2 were good cameras.  I like this Pentax as well.  My favorite part is the rechargeable lithium ion batteries, as the k2000 and k-x used AA batteries that were used up quickly.  Cosmetically, I like it that they left the silver decorative chrome off this model.  This camera performs well with high ISO settings.

Pentax K-r

  • Summary: My first SLR was a Pentax. I like Pentax cameras and find this camera satisfactory for the family photographs which I take now. It is very good in available light situations and has a great range of aperature and lens speed choices. Battery life is good. If you own other Pentax lenses, they will most likely work on this camera on manual settings. I recommend this camera for general use.

awesome

  • Summary: This was my well researched purchase. I've traveled internationally into hard and dusty climates with this and it is a trooper. I have gotten compliments on the vivid color of the photos and have gotten jobs I didn't expect because I can take some really nice shots with this machine. I pretty much have to buy accessories (lenses, etc) on line because the city I live in isn't big on Pentax, but it still was a great choice. I'd buy it again.

  • Summary: Bought this item online after doing some research. I wanted a good beginner's DSLR camera that I wouldn't need to upgrade after a year. This camera is great right out of the box with fully Automatic programming. Once you learn the basics. Great HD Video mode.

Solid DSLR

CHARLES, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice step up from Kx. This feels as solid as DSLRs from Canon and Nikon in the $1000 range. Next step is a K30 or 50. Pentax is a small co.. with gr8 products. For the $$$ you cant beat em.

great purchase

  • Summary: I bought this used item, to test whether if I want to buy a new one. Nice camera, still trying to learn how to operate it. It's noisy though, I think I like those cameras that don't make a sound or click every time you push the shutter. Otherwise, its great, I think. The look of it is great, everyone notices the white color. I specifically wanted a white camera and this one fits perfectly.

Budget DSLR that Delivers

Jim K., Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the Pentax K-R several years ago so I had time to form a better opinion. Coming from point and shoot cameras, it took me quite a while to get accustomed to this camera's deep menu of features. Now I get great pictures at a faster rate. I mostly do people photography for public viewing, websites, and publications. The RAW file capability of the K-R is a must have when submitting images to many publishers.

A Broken Camera from a Broken Company

Truthteller, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: After reading numerous reviews about this camera from assorted sources, I finally acquired one. I was drawn to it based upon its innovative internal image stabilization, making any lens put on it IS. I also liked the idea that almost all Pentax lenses would work with it, even quite old ones, and that it was rated positively for low light performance.

love this camera

  • Summary: It's my first DSLR camera and am very happy with it. Good choice for entry level photographers. I did extensive comparisons with various Canon and Nikon cameras and I kept coming back to this Pentax for the value and options it offered for the price. This camera has lots of functions and options and fills good to hold.
