Summary: I particularly like the compact size of this camera. It feels very solid, and is AA battery compatible, which is great if you have rechargeable batteries already. This is convenient because if you lose the adapter you *have* to buy a replacement, whereas if you lose the batteries it's different, I just prefer AA's over special battery types. That is where this camera gained major points with me. Where it lost some, however, is the *autofocus* feature.
Summary: Pentax makes a quality camera, and I was looking for an inexpensive camera to carry in my briefcase. I wanted good quality pictures, but I didn't need high megapixels. This camera had the features and price range that I was looking for.
