Pentax KP Review
A great camera, with a new design. The build quality could have been better for the price. The K3II has a better build quality. The plastic for the flash sounds plastic when you tap it. A little bit thicker plastic would helped. You feel like you have to hold on to your camera and not drop it. I ...

Pentax LX Review
I started with with an MX, but when photography really got under my skin, I always longed for an LX. However, I never could get myself to buy one because of the money and eventually changed to other systems (Olympus OM, later Canon EOS...) I bought a K-5 and was looking for a film camera to shoot so...

Pentax Spotmatic Motor Drive Review

The camera is still op...

PENTAX auto 110 Review
This is a lot of fun to use and the simple interface makes it a fairly quick-to-learn camera.

The shutter acts as the aperture and the mirror sea...

Pentax MZ-M/ZX-M Review
Pentax billed this as a replacement to the K1000, but it doesn't come close to filling its shoes. I've tried to find one of these that works and have purchased a half-dozen of these. I'm zero for six. I do not recommend this camera, period end of story. Spend a few dollars more and pick up a K or M ...

Pentax LX Review
In early 1980 both Nikon and Canon came out with their anticipated third generation pro camera models while Pentax released their first interchangeable viewfinder 35mm camera just in time for their 60th anniversary and appropriately designated the LX. But unlike it's interchangeable viewfinde...

Pentax SFXn/SF1n Review
I have just got this in excellent condition but the select button isn't working I can't select any modes set iso or exposure compensation. However I got it with 2 CR5 batteries 3 boxes of cheap agfa film and a sigma AF 35-70mm f3.5 -f4.5 lens which is multi-coated and has a 52mm rotating front ...
