  • Conclusion: The Pentax MX-1 is a beautifully designed camera, but some issues with image quality and performance prevent it from living up to its potential.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design with brass construction. Excellent control layout. Tilting rear display. Fast lens. Raw shooting support. Low noise through ISO 1600.
  • Cons: Very soft edges at widest angle. Heavy distortion when shooting Raw. Unresponsive for a few seconds after taking a photo. No hot shoe or EVF option.

Pentax MX-1 review

TechRadar UK
7 March 2013
  • Summary: How appealing is this retro-styled premium compact?
  • Pros: Wide aperture lens, Brass construction, Tilting screen, The Sony sensor onboard the Pentax MX-1 produces some very sharp images with excellent colour rendition, especially in good lighting conditions.
  • Cons: Boxy design, Dated user interface, Some odd handling quirks, The boxy design won't appeal to everyone, and while manufacturers such as Fujifilm manage to fall the right side of retro, this camera just looks dated.

Pentax MX-1 im Test

  • Summary: Mit der MX-1 steigt Pentax in den Markt der großsensorigen Kompakten ein. Mit wenig Features und guter Bildqualität ist sie der Gegenentwurf zum hauseigenen Q-System.
  • Pros: prima Ausstattung für Fotografen mit gehobenen Ansprüchen, großer Sensor sorgt für gute Bildqualität, komplett manuell bedienbar
  • Cons: mitunter umständliche Bedienung
