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 love this camera. Either i take really good pictures or the quality of the camera is superb. Probably the second one. The layout is kinda similar to Cannon but after you go through everything its quite easy. People will turn heads and admire your camera.
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.
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.
Summary: My first SLR was a Pentax. I like Pentax cameras and find this camera satisfactory for the family photographs which I take now. It is very good in available light situations and has a great range of aperature and lens speed choices. Battery life is good.
Summary: This was my well researched purchase. I've traveled internationally into hard and dusty climates with this and it is a trooper. I have gotten compliments on the vivid color of the photos and have gotten jobs I didn't expect because I can take some really nice shots with this machine.
