  • Summary: although not nearly as good as the nikon d5300, it has become a go to snapshot camera. It thinks for itself. My lenses also are motored.

  • 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.

Budget DSLR that Delivers

Jim K., Amazon
15 September 2013
  • 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.

K-r is an Underrated Camera

Solar Ben, DP Review
13 February 2013
  • Conclusion: I've been using the K-r for two years. ISO 3200 RAW is surprisingly clean - check the RAW noise charts in the review. 6fps great for action shooting.

  • Cons: If you have lens corrections on, the images take a few seconds to appear on the view screen after you take them.

Pentax Kr Digital Camera

Barbara F., Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera body to replace a film Pentax. I'm using lenses I had for the other camera. All work with the Kr, although one will not focus automatically. I don't know why Pentax is no longer a popular brand; it isn't carried in most stores. Yet the camera takes good photos.

  • Excerpt: Reliable, ergonomically excellent, great RAW image quality (as far as i can tell, still better than 2012 releases like the Canon 650D/Nikon D3200), 6fps, incredibly cheap, light, decent VF, easy menu layout, HDR, customizable 'green' button, fast start-up, many other features like the ability to...

An excellent starter DSLR

Prodigal Knot, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: I have long wanted to get a better camera than the frustrating Point and Shoot type. Way back in the film days, I had a nice Yashica and my wife an Olympus SLR. In 2001 I finally went to digital and haven't looked back.
