What Digital Camera
10 January 2013

Pentax X-5 ( Black)

CNET
18 December 2012
  • Summary: Line up these specs against the asking price for an X-5 and you'll see it's an absolute bargain. Naturally some corners have had to be cut to keep the price so low, but not to a degree that would leave a hobby photographer disappointed with the results.

Pentax X-5

PhotographyBLOG
24 October 2012
  • Summary: Looking at first glance like a fully-fledged DSLR with its pretend lens ring and hotshoe flash cover, the Pentax X-5 soon reveals itself to be something of a wolf in sheep's clothing, leaning much more to the point-and-shoot end of the compact camera spectrum.
