  • Excerpt: I really have enjoyed this camera. I was looking to upgrade from a 100D to get better resolution, external controls, a grip, SDM and weather sealing. I knew that having the two dials along with the other external controls, such as exposure bracketing, would help, but I definitely underestimated just...

  • Excerpt: * Ergonomics: Like other Pentax products I've owned, I find the K20D more comfortable to grip and secure to hold than competing products.
  • Pros: Extensive manual control and customization features
  • Cons: Heavy. My copy had a manufacturing flaw that caused manual focus problems.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this camara 1 year ago. I am a beginner person who loves to take pictures (most photographers I know dont like it when an amatuer calls themselves a "photographer"...LOL) I think initially my favorite thing about this camara is the price, you get more 'bang for your buck".
  • Pros: sturdy, liveview, and price

  • Excerpt: Value is not even a question. Competes with much higher priced cameras. While some don't like it's weight and size, I personally like a hefty solid feel. Performance falls a little short of some of its contemporaries, but not so much that the value is affected.
  • Pros: Inexpensive for its class, pro-level features, built-in SR, solid and weather sealed
  • Cons: exposure and white balance are so so, low light is a bit off

  • Excerpt: An excellent value at today's used prices ($475 for a low-click example?) for a weather-sealed, professional 14.5 MP Pentax. Great sensor from Samsung: accurate colors and decent high ISO performance (esp.
  • Pros: weather-sealed, well-built, external AEB and SR switches

  • Summary: good value for money (especially as the camera was a present for someone in New Zealand.) Only thing I could 'complain' about is length of time to receive manufacturers rebate.... Great camera for someone who has a vast collection of existing lenses.

Almost perfect

Christer Medin, Amazon
22 July 2008
  • Summary: This was quite an upgrade from the Samsung GX-1S (clone of *ist DS2) I used previously . Pentax have always put out nice products but haven't really been pushing the envelope until now. The bad: Auto white balance is still pretty poor. This has been the case with the other Pentax DSLRs.

Nice Improvement Over the K10D Deserves More Credit

P. VANDALEN, Amazon
3 June 2008
  • Summary: If Pentax were a bit more serious about increasing the sales of their cameras to first-time Pentax buyers, they'd be making some changes to their marketing strategy. It's unfortunate that with most consumer/professional camera reviews, the Pentax products get dinged in relation to their competitors...

  • Excerpt: Now that I'm no longer trying to sell my K20D, I can be brutally honest about its shortcomings. But to be fair, I also need to mention why I would still recommend this camera even though I've now moved up to the K-5.
  • Pros: Image quality, ergonomics
  • Cons: Autofocus speed and accuracy, noise at higher ISO
