Pentax MZ-5 / ZX-5 Review
I bought this camera in December 1996, in a trip to Chicago, and was my main camera till I bought my first digital Canon T1i in 2008, I’ve used it for Travel and even professional work, it was an amazing camera, I bought a very expensive Tamron 14mm lens for it and used it a lot, I loved that lens, ...

Pentax Z-10 / PZ-10 Review
This was my first camera. I still have it and I might use it again. Bought in 1993 (more or less). I used it basically always as a point and shoot SLR, not knowing much about photography. Interchangeable lens was something I was interested in but as a student, didnt have the money to buy other lense...

Pentax K-01 Review
A unique camera body for K mount lenses, not a replacement for a DSLR, it is complement. Ex cellent with older M and A lenses, especially good with the DA 15mm F4 and the pancake lenses, not so good with longer zooms. Good battery life with NO overheating issues. Programmable red button is handy...

Pentax ES Review
I bought this camera as a body only from a “this is a camera, no more no less” type of auction on eBay.

Pentax *ist DL Review
I can't believe I never reviewed this camera. It was my first Pentax DSLR but I had it for all to short of a time. I got it second hand in August 2012 with a DA 18-55 zoom lens with all of its original packaging. It looked like it had never been used. I'd had the camera for all of two weeks when I d...

Pentax MZ-30 / ZX-30 Review
I recently bought two of these cameras on eBay as they were so cheap and I wanted to experiment with analogue photography without breaking the bank. I currently have one set up with the 40mm Xs pancake lens, it's so light, you'll hardly notice it carrying it around. I accidentally dropped one of the...

Pentax 67 Review
Just got a fantastic deal on a Pentax 67 with minimal issues (worn speed selector, missing meter chain, but otherwise pretty clean & good); adding the price now, review to come as I get accustomed to it and the system.
