  • Summary: It has always amazed me that the so called critics give Pentax bodies by and large mediocre reviews yet the owners of these cameras love them. Weight is often criticized, but I find the weight comfortable. Granted I am not a pro, and do not carry it around all day long, but the weight and heft are to my liking. Most all the bells and whistles are here either direct access or easy to find menu placement.For those with previous lenses, you are in luck.

  • 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". Second was how it felt in my hands, nice and sturdy (although thats a minus too because my wrists start to hurt after a while).
  • Pros: sturdy, liveview, and price
  • Cons: high iso=noisy pic and

  • 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. Certainly not a huge concern--especially if you shoot RAW--but a little annoying considering other manufacturers seem to manage it much better. It has a tendency to underexpose.

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 when they shouldn't have to be. You can see this in the Consumer Reports review of DSLRs and other reviews such as PopPhoto.

  • 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 how fantastic it is to operate a camera without resorting to menu diving. The picture quality is very impressive, but unfortunately the noise can become frustrating.
  • Pros: build,controls,ease of use,sealed,image quality,grip,viewfinder
  • Cons: high iso noise,under exposure,continuous af,live view,no video

  • 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

Pentax K20d review

Mr. M. Cooper "JimmyCrackenbush", Amazon
26 October 2009
  • Summary: After frustratingly searching for many weeks to buy the Cannon 50D - I finally gave up the ghost as I began to assume that general stock had dried up. I even began to suspect the model had perhaps been deleted by Cannon and a supersede was secretly on the horizon. The final nail in the coffin was when I was treated very badly by Black Bearded Bob, the Store Manager of JACOBS in Hull.
