Really nice camera

Raul Soto "soto3sa", Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: I love this camera. It's my first DSLR and I have to say that at the beginning I got criticized because of the brand. Canon and Nikon are more popular brands but Pentax has nothing to be ashamed of. I'll keep it for as long as it works and when the time for a new one arrives, i think I'll stick with the brand.

Great Camera with a great price

Golf Guy, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is wonderful. It is solidly built. I'm no pro, but I have a Pentax K50 and a Nikon D5100 which both perform well, but I prefer the feel of this camera. I took pictures of my daughter in the park with this recently and they turned out great.

Love it!

  • Summary: I bought the K20D as a replacement for my K10D that was stolen from our home during a burglary. Everything about the next generation is very similar to my original K10D, but the pictures are even more crisp. I'm still learning everything about it, but really like it so far. We're taking it on our honeymoon to see the Northern Lights, and I'm hopeful that it will behave and we'll get some great pics!

  • Summary: Maybe good back in the days, not in 2013's standard! Autofocus is slow compared to the cheaper Rebel...

Good purchase.

Old First Sergeant, Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera used and I have been very satisfied with it so far. It came pretty well complete except for one lens cover. A minor thing. I'm still learning the camera, but what I like most is that I can use an 80X200 telephoto lens that I had for my old Pentax 35mm film camera. It works well. Even the auto focus works with the old telephoto lens. I'm quite satisfied.

Ruggedly functional: for those who love photography

Fotofan4life, CNET
27 January 2013
  • Summary: The K20D is a substantial, comfortable, quality digital camera body. It is a "photographer's camera," designed by those who know what is important when out in the field. The controls fall into convenient locations in the hand. It provides a comfortable and secure grip. In contrast with some other camera manufacturers, Pentax retained lens compatibility for its pre-digital lens mounts, providing a natural appeal for film SLR owners like me.
  • Pros: Functional with easy-to-use controls, easily operational with gloves. Excellent ergonomics, grippable texturized covering. Weather-sealed. Large optical viewfinder. Accepts ALL Pentax K and thread mount lenses. Excellent battery performance.
  • Cons: Awkward live video. Tedious menu hunting requiring numerous pages. Non-movable video screen. Somewhat dim optical viewfinder.

  • Summary: I have been looking for this camera for some time and I am very impressed and satisfied but I will not get rid of my Pentax Spotmatic as well as the K100D.
