Major problems but good pictures when works right

  • Summary: I've had this camera for two years now and taken a lot of photos between a trip to Europe, family trips, museums and a new baby which is a wide range of subjects and lighting. The camera does take nice pictures, when it works right.

  • Excerpt: Due to some huge AF problems I'm having to give this a low rating. If the front focus problem were not so severe I would happily give this camera 8/10 it's a great camera in many ways so much to offer at a very good price. Loaded with features and customisation, nice IQ great low light sensor.
  • Pros: Great spec nice price.
  • Cons: Huge FF problems in low kelvin light

Maybe I got a Lemon

  • Summary: Bought the Pentax kr from CostCo with the two lens package. Kept it for two days and returned it. The little red focus indicator did not always light up consistently. I went outside and took pictures at 3PM on a nice, sunny day in the auto mode.

Front focus issue needs to be addressed

  • Summary: For those who are unaware, the Pentax K-r has what's called a "front focussing" issue. You won't notice it in most situations, and it has slipped under the radar of virtually all professional reviews.

Great camera with a fatal flaw...

  • Summary: On paper, this camera is fantastic. It is quite small and lightweight. The low light capabilities of this DLSR are amazing. It is as if the camera can see in the dark without a flash. The included Li-Ion battery is long lived.

  • Excerpt: Not even going to waste time writing up a full review. I have had more problems with this camera than every other camera I've ever owned - combined. SO many issues. The incandescent focusing problem (google it) is a pain, but constantly shutting down because it thinks the batteries are dead when...
  • Pros: Compact, dirt cheap
  • Cons: Incandescent focusing is off, flash issues, battery issues, menu issues, and more

decent dslr with some serious issues

VA, Amazon

  • Summary: Firstly, this camera has a lot of good things to it and I genuinely wish Pentax great future - unlike the big two (Canon and Nikon) they put more emphasis on R&D than on marketing. Downsides; 1.In this particular model there is autofocusing issue acknowledged by Pentax.

If the autofocus worked properly would be a great camera

Mr Baz, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought a K-r about 10 months ago from a well know high street seller. Everything was great to start with, very pleased overall. I had a K-x prior to this and that was pretty good (bar the mirror slap problem)Nicer grip then the K-x, added a bigger buffer few more fps.

Schöne Kamera

  • Summary: Habe die Pentax nicht so richtig kapiert von der Bedienung, es sind auch nicht so gute Erklärungen auf youtube oder der Website zu finden. Das ist ein bisschen schade. Die Kamera hat leider auch nur ein halbes Jahr und ca. 10.000 Auslösungen gehalten.
