Summary: I have had a 40 year love affair with Pentax Cameras. Now I have one that will last for the rest of my life, and make up for my failing vision and less than steady hands. I will die happy and leave a legacy of photos for someone else to sort out!
Summary: It does the long-distance wildlife shots I bought it for. Though I use a tripod, the anti-shake can be better on full extension of the telephoto. My main complaint is that the zoom control is very "glitchy", touchy to control. I end up relying on cropping more than I had wanted to do, just to frame a shot.
Summary: I started photography with a Pentax Spotmatic 2. I loved that camera. Then I upgraded to Canon T90. When I went digital, I moved to Nikon. While the Canon and Nikons are great racehorses, racehorses can be finicky. I wanted a little circus pony of a camera. The Pentax fit the bill. It takes beautiful photos, the zoom is simply incredible and the customer service I receive from the seller is superb.
Summary: What I like about the Pentax X90 -Affordable -Comfortable to hold. -Easy to use. -Pictures are very good quality. -The Zoom Feature. -Buttons are in the right places. The BEST Advice is; Use it and keep your manual handy. Be patient as you learn how to use this camera. You'll most likely be impressed with all that it does. It's not a thousand dollar camera with changeable lenses.
I am loving the pictures I take because they look professional

Excerpt: I was looking for a new digital camera and was only looking at the Nikon brand, because that was what I was replacing and had been happy with my previous one. The only thing my old Nikon was missing was a good zoom lens. Hubby surprised me with a brand new Pentax X90 Digital camera, and I could not be happier. I have to admit, I was a little bit unhappy at first, when I saw the price tag and the instruction manual.
Excerpt: I have had a Pentax - X90 for a few months now and have literally taken thousands of pictures. My husband is a die-hard Nikon fan. (He is a semi-professional photographer.) I, however, lack the patience and know-how to take the kind of pictures he does. I was not interested in carrying around a big bag full of different lenses that had to be changed depending on the type of pictures I was going to take. Much to his dismay, I decided to get the X90.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera after much research and was looking forward to having a great camera. I take hundreds of pictures a week - mostly of children and events they participate in, as well as crafting and such to put on my blog. My old point and shoot finally died, so I figured this would be a great time to move a step up. Paying two and a half times more than I paid for my point and shoot, I figured having clear, beautiful pictures would be a given. It wasn't.

Summary: I have finally outgrown my beloved Kodak ZD710 and wanted to move up to a camera with a higher zoom. I have bought and returned another Kodak z980, a GE 15X and a Fujifilm S4000. The Kodak Z980 was o.k. but it was one big hunk of plastic, cheap feeling and clunky. The GE had the worst pictures. Very blurred @ high resolution. The Fujifilm was the biggest disappointment. It was huge compared to my ZD710 and not user friendly at all.
