  • 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.
  • Cons: Noisy shutter.

  • 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.
