  • Conclusion: The Pentax K20D could be seen as a K10D Mk2, a camera that attempts to move on while putting right the minor flaws in its predecessor. And in that respect, it's a huge success. The K20D builds on the strengths of its forebear and corrects for the issue that plagued us most.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality at low ISO settings, Image quality still good as ISO 1600, Ergonomics up with the best of the best, Large and bright Pentaprism viewfinder (0.95x magnification), Robust body with dust and weather seals, high build quality, Accurate, reliable auto-focus, Sharpening modes gi...
  • Cons: Continuous shooting rate slow by modern standards, Hot pixels can occur and can't be automatically removed, Noise reduction cannot be raised as high as the competition, Live view mode adds very little to the camera (it is neither seamless nor able to usefully magnify), Autofocus not as fast or co...

  • Conclusion: Pentax K20D digital system camera I have put the bar quite high for the Pentax K20D. It should surpass the K10D, a camera that I like a lot. Luckily Pentax have not let me down. The best of the K10D has been preserved, and Pentax have added some nice extras.

Pentax K20D DSLR Digital SLR Review

ePHOTOzine
24 January 2008
  • Summary: The upgrades from the K20D make the camera that little bit more interesting. Even though Gabrielle Remmers said that Pentax are not entering a pixel race, it's amusing to see that the K20D has the highest pixel count in its class.
  • Pros: Dust alert feature, Extended Shake reduction, Good ISO results, Pixel mapping feature
  • Cons: No reason why the monitor couldn't be bigger, The Live view AF could be problematic

Pentax K20D Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Dat ik voor een Pentax K20D val, heeft dan ook misschien meer te maken met emotie dan met harde argumenten. Soms moet je meer op je gevoel afgaan dan op de feiten. Zeker met de pancakes is de Pentax K20D digitale SLR een nauwelijks te versmaden combinatie. Klein, vlot en van een goede kwaliteit.

Pentax K20d

14 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Avec ce K20d , Pentax propose une mise à jour ambitieuse de son K10d . Il reprend évidemment tous les caractéristiques qui avait fait le succès de son prédécesseur : un boitier assez discret par sa taille relativement, un châssis particulièrement solide à la finition tropicalisée (l’étanchéité à...
  • Pros: construction et finition tropicalisées, la définition, la stabilisation, le système antipoussières, des modes novateurs et pratiques
  • Cons: Viseur 95%, La qualité d'image au delà de 800 isos, un parc optique un peu moins développé que Canon et Nikon, pour le moment, le prix, quand on le confronte à celui de sortie du K10d
