Pentax MV Review
I got this SLR with a bunch of lenses, so there's no nostalgia here. My body was in pristine state, and looks nice as long as you don't notice the cheap materials like the thin metal bottomplate and the plastic body. Other Pentax bodies wear their plastic better, looking less cheap (e.g. the Super-A...

Pentax K-1 II Review
What can one say after 8 days? I will adjust this review as time passes. For now I am thrilled with picture quality, though for me, full frame with regards to vignetting on various lenses is a developing skill set. Tons of features, and higher light sensitivity. The accelerator in the processing mak...

Pentax KP Review
I thought I had everything I really needed with my K-50, and was amping myself for full frame. Then I saw the Pentax KP, and loved the retro look, and the high ISO capabilities, but didn't really care about upgrading APS-C. Until I needed that extra ISO step to boost low light image quality, the KP ...

Ricoh GR II Review
I purchased this camera as an upgrade to an older Point and Shoot. I wanted something that was going to be on me through my day to day. However, image quality was also very important. I wasn't sure if a wide angle prime compact was the way to go but I was really drawn to the larger sensor of this ca...

Pentax LX Review
I've always wanted one, to me no other camera compares to it as far as I feel. But I have only had mine for two weeks. Mine is a later model of the LX. It feels so great in your hands, and it's has a smooth operation. I love that you switch viewfinders anytime. I was showing to a friend who became a...

Pentax MZ-5N / ZX-5N Review
This is an interesting camera, an attempt I guess nto make someting with the controls of the pre-autofocus era. Unfortunatl y, the major problem is that they break. The popup flash fails, and more importantly the pinion gear on the motor fails. OK, you can now pick up another one very cheaply (if ...

Pentax K-3 Review
I must admit I stopped using dslrs a long time ago as I made the switch to Mirrorless camera systems. I still have a few dslrs lying around such as a canon 5d mark 1 and a pentax k-x but dont use them much. I made the switch to mirrorless bodies mainly due to size and weight issues. Also mirrorless ...
