Pentax K-3 Review
I bought the K3 to replace my aging K200D, mostly to get better AF, better high ISO image quality and to stop using AA batteries, which cause a lot of problems in the K200D (even using the best ones available on the market). I was happy to find that the K3 is a success in all of those counts. AF...

Pentax K-3 Review
In Sept 2015 I decided it was about time I got a DSLR for some of my more serious use. I have and still am a fan of film. The choice was between the K3, the K3ii or a Nikon D7200 as I have a lot of legacy lenses from both systems I wanted to keep using. I preferred the feel of the Pentax cameras in ...

Pentax KX Review
I bought my KX in October 2015 not long after acquiring a KM (which I have also reviewed). Everything said about the KX in other reviews posted here is true. Its a wonderful mechanical machine that is very well built with all the features you need to take good pictures with. It is relatively big an...

Pentax Spotmatic F Review
Like all Spotmatics, this is a wonderful tool and a joy to use. Make it look through a Takumar and it becomes magic. The controls without exception work smoothly and let you feel the craftsmanship that Asahi put into it. The SPF officially takes 1.4 volt mercury batteries, which are no longer avail...

Pentax SL Review
I went into my local camera shop yesterday for something completely different than this camera (a new tripod head) but they were selling an array of old M42 Pentax's on behalf of someone. I could not resist and after handling every thing from SV's through SP1000 and SPf's I chose this one. I had bee...

Pentax Q Review
A bit of history as to why I bought this camera new(old stock) in April 2015. I had recently come back from holiday from Italy and found the 28mm equiv lens on my GRD iv a bit limiting. I am not a fan of standard zooms, and I wanted a small light camera with a standard prime to carry around all day ...

Pentax K-7 Review
I bought this camera from a local pawnshop. This is my first DSLR, but I wasn't sure whether such an old camera would be worth it. I couldn't find much info on the internet about how useable an 8 year old Pentax K7 would be, so I thought I'd write this review to help others in my situation. I upg...
