Summary: I've had this camera hot about 3 years. I love it and would buy it again today. I take pictures of my son in track an football. Captures action really well. Also great shots at famy get together a. I often use a 70-300 mm for the sports. Works great even from the stands.
Summary: I've had this camera for about 2 years, now. I love the low-light shooting and color quality. I carry it with me a lot, and it has been in the tropics and the desert for a lot of the time I have owned it.
Summary: I'm a novice at digital SLR so I'm having a new adventure. I am trilled with this camera and so far - pretty darn easy to navigate. And better yet, my other Pentax K-mount lenses work with it too.
Excerpt: I bought this as my first Digital camera. I wanted a Pentax DSLR simply because I already have a collection of K-mount lenses, left over from my days using my first and only film SLR, a Pentax K-1000 made in 1979, owned by me since 1980 (and which I still have).
Pros: Uses all my lenses from the film days. light, great user interface includes a fully manual mode.
Summary: Everyone has Nikon or Canon....I did some research and found out that this camera performs jst as well....and I like that I don't see a ton of these around people's necks like the Canon EOS or Nikon D series.
