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.

Pentax quality control problems

John149823 "John", Amazon
9 June 2012
  • Summary: Ordered this camera from Emmy Photo. The original camera that I was sent had the light meter calibration off by more than 2 stops. Sent back and promptly received a replacement unit. The LED display on this second unit began to fail within a matter of weeks.

Pray you don't break it - you will NOT be able to get parts.

K. Brandt "KB", Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Great camera and lens kit, but Pentax's parts department is essentially non-existent. I accidentally broke the plastic mount on the 55-300mm lens at one of my daughter's cheer competitions (camera fell from chair).

Didn't mention that battery holder is optional accesory

vbarrera, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: FYI this camera does not come with the AA Battery Holder D-DBH109 $39.99. It is an optional accesory. It would have been nice if Amazon showed this AA Battery Holder D-BH109 as a "buy with" accesory item.

What camera?

campcummings, Amazon
26 October 2011
  • Summary: This review was posted for the Pentax K-r with the SMCP-DA 35mm f/2.4 AL lens - same camera, different lens than this offering (sold through ACE Photo). I bought this camera in March 2011 anticipating using it for two upcoming trips (both to Australia).

I got a lemon

Wackezoid, Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: I hope it is reasonble to assume my experience is the exception. My sample would not focus correctly, not even remotely close. It would not register correct focus with manual focus lenses, either. Image quality was also not up to the strong reviews this camera gets that were reasons for my choice.

two steps forward, one backwards

Joydeep Sen Sarma, Amazon
19 December 2010
  • Summary: Updated (09/2011): This camera has been a disaster. Aside from the front focusing issues - the ring at the back stopped working properly after 4-5 months. I sent it for repair and after a week - the ring again stopped working.

Leider nicht behebbare Konstruktionsfehler: Spiegelschlag + Frontfokus, die K x ist zudem die bessere Kamera

Trabzon, Amazon
18 June 2015
  • Summary: Die Pentax K r sollte ja ein verbesserter Nachfolger zur K x sein, das ging leider schwer daneben: Das Netzteil der K r basiert auf dem der K x und ist für AA-Akkus ausgelegt, verwendet nun aber Li-Ion.

äußerst schlechte Service-Erfahrungen

H. Umba, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: Ich war zunächst relativ zufrieden mit dem Gerät, meine mittlerweile dritte digitale Spiegelreflex-Kamera kam zwar nicht an andere zuvor von mir genutzte Konkurrenz-Modelle ran, aber ich fand die Ergebnisse gleichwohl okay.

Im Detail verbessert ... (kurzer Vergleich mit K-x)

Dirk Weigand, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: Nach den ausführlichen Amazon User Reviews bisher möchte ich hier kurz und knapp meine subjektiven Eindrücke schildern. Ich hatte zuvor eine K-x, aber die Pentax Cashback Aktion und die Summe der kleinen Verbesserungen in der K-r haben mich überzeugt ...
