Latest Review Posted Pentax K-70
In my defence, I have rated this camera based on the fact that it is Pentax' entry level DSLR and I got it for the price of a GoPro!

My first DSLR was a Pentax K-r and considering I paid more for that 10 years ago than I just did for my K-70 there is no comparison. Just as back then, the K-r was well ahead of other entry level DSLRs so it is with the K-70.

People have knocked the kit lens but I bought this "body only" and hopefully a relatively unoutstanding lens won't detract from my review of an excellent camera.

My workhorse for several years has been the K-5II and I miss the controls and top LCD of that camera but again it cost more than twice as much in the day.

I find the K-70 feels solid and comfortable to hold. The louder shutter is immediately noticeable but not in a jarring manner.

What finally made me pull the trigger on buying the K-70 was an excellent deal and the fact that I wanted an articulating screen to help with those awkward angle shots. I wasn't expecting an excellent improvement in high ISO noise. I have used pictures at 10000 ISO with little to grumble about. I don't know about you but I thought it remarkable.

As mentioned by others, the smaller capacity battery could be considered a problem but the most work my cameras have is a wedding day and because I use my K-5II, K10D and the K-70, battery life has not been an issue and I have spares.

I know the market might demand wide zoom ranges but I often think it would be a goo...
