  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
4 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: 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: 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

  • 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.
