Summary: Camera was on backorder since July 29, 2013. Seller did stay in contact with us. He finally cancelled order since he could not get cameras in to fufill order. He tried to make order right but it just did not work out. Will try again later but hope he has the correct price listed this time. Sorry this order did not work out...............
Summary: This camera takes great photos and has wonderful options for creativity. The software is amazing. The flash though is located where your finger might go, so the flash is off, and the camera is not durable. Mine broke. Buy warrantee!
Summary: Its spec'n etc seemed good for my needs. No go, as the zoom facility became more distorted when enlarged, despite being optical. This points to poor lens production & capability. Pentax need to quality check this camera & produce a better lens system, with improved clarity for the 'zoom' facility. I purchased a much cheaper Olympus, with less zoom range, but much better overall clarity.
Summary: When I first got the camera I was seduced by the fantastic zoom, the niggle I had about the general feel and build quality of the camera was put to one side. After a few weeks of light use however my initial worries came back to haunt me. The camera wouldn't turn on properly, the lens would come out part way then the camera would turn off and the lens would instantly retract. I sent the camera back to the manufacturer under warranty and their response has been very poor.
