Pentax SL Review
I bought my fist SL way back in 1978 - a black Honeywell model. . At one point I had 12 Pentax Spotmactic bodies including two motor drive models. I sold all of them off in 1988 except for my SL body an a 50mm f/1.4 lens. My black Pentax SL is heavily modified. It has a Nikon P screen, a Leica s...

Pentax KP Review
I jumped on the Xmas sale of this camera. I had initially decided against it until I read a post calling out the new sensor. Great praise. The origin review covered the new chip more so than the sensor. After reading the post and the sale price, I bought it. NOT disappointed :) The image quality ...

Pentax K-1 II Review
This camera is closer to 10/10 than 9/10, but the cons were enough to not give it full marks. The K-1 Mark II, like the K-1, is built solidly, performs adequately in most photographic settings, and expands the photographer's capability in low-light and dynamic range like never before. Now we have a...

Pentax K-S1 Review

Pentax K10D Review
Back when I got my K10D, it was more than a match for its closest competitors (like the D200) in terms of image quality, and at a much more interesting price for a camera with weather seals. Since I already had manual focus Pentax lenses, going digital with Pentax made sense. I really loved the came...

Pentax K-5 Review
The K-5 is a great DSLR, but it has a few flaws that could be a deal breaker for some users. First , the ergonomics are almost perfect, with most of the buttons and controls being in the right place. The main issue is having to press the "OK" button to switch between selecting the AF point and c...
