Latest Review Posted Pentax K-70
My fiance was getting frustrated with her K-x, specially itīs screen for live view so
iīve been spending weeks for searching used upgrade. Bought a K-r from īBay but it was a hoax and never arrived.

We watched all the reviews from youtube and liked the K-30/50 very much. However she didnīt like the idea of paying 300+€ from used item so i tried to find the cheap, aperture issue ones but not much luck there.

One day i stumbled across a webstore with a "Pentax week" going on and boom, K-70 body for less than 500€ (about 550usd)!

Desision was made quick and the deal was done. Dealer was Finnish, so returning was no problem in the case she didnīt like the camera after all. Main concern was the size/weight, coming from K-x everything seems big.

Camera arrived, and after initial setting up i didnīt touch the camera but watched her playing around and kept telling that if you donīt like it, well send it back. Later that night she said the camera isnīt going anywhere... :D

And wow, the thing is a thing of beauty! I use K-5 as my main camera and iīm not gonna loose it, but if i was needing a new one the K-70 would definetly be an option over K-3 and K-P. Love the articulating, sharp screen with focus peaking, it makes live view focusing easy, fun and invaluable in many situations because we mainly use vintage lenses.

Ergonomics, size, weight are all good. Pentax is doing great job with refining their products.
Shutter sound is pleasing, compared to K-...
