Pentax MV Review
I can't help feeling there's a degree of snobbery directed towards the lesser mortals in the Pentax range, particularly the MV-1 and MV. It doesn't pretend to be a professional's main kit camera, so shouldn't be measured by the same yardstick. Wha t it does do, however, (assuming you've managed to...

Pentax P3N / P30N Review
Whenever I encounter this model i get depressed. Because this was one of the cameras I considered when I wanted to buy a new camera back in 1989.

Pentax K200D Review
Bought new in November 2009, after production stop at its lowest price level (3 months later the Internet prices went up by 40%). I would have preferred the K20D, but K200D-399 vs. K20D-650 decided for me. It was just that I was sure on the long run neither 10MP nor 14MP would be what I wanted. A...
