Pentax MX Review
Prior to this camera I have used a Minolta x-300, Chinon CA-4 and Minolta XG-1. I've been using it regularly since I got it, and have found it very easy to get accustomed to, although having been using the Chinon for so long that occasionally I forget to set the shutter.. (a terrible habit!) O...

Pentax K-50 Review
I can't recommend it with with a clear conscience. The camera behaved good at the beginning but later (after ayear or so) some issues started occuring, most memorable and common are: - built in - lamp sometimes didn't fire with no reason (when powered up fully) - from time to time pressing the shut...

Pentax K-01 Review
Fun camera that takes excellent quality photos. LCD screen can be hard to see in sunlight but I now use a "clear viewer" and most of the problems have gone away. Square form factor can be used to take shots by placing on a flat surface. Feels pretty good in the hand and is easy to hold and shoot. Gr...

Pentax *ist DL2 Review
I have given this camera body a 10 for an overall rating which seems pretty stupid of me but as a starter DSLR I much prefer it to the Canon EOS 350D, even with the smaller mp sensor. Ergonomics are great. I bought this camera complete with a Pentax DA 50-200mm F:4-5.6 ED zoom for US $50, in spares ...

Pentax ME F Review
The Pentax ME F was released in October 1981 and is Pentax’s first attempt at an Auto Focus system. The ME F is based on the ME Super body that was released the year before. The AF feature only worked with the one M35-70/2.8 zoom, so it was not really that popular of a camera and was in production ...

Pentax K2 DMD Review
I have one of these, however the meter won't stay on with the advance lever cocked part way like it's supposed to. I think it was abused somewhat despite it's almost otherwise prestine condition. That's ok, it works like my Minolta XD 11, which I love and will never sell. The best feature of the K2...
