Spot On Review

QuoteOriginally posted by Rush2112 Quote
Just got it today. This will be my first comprehensive review since the K5IIs on my site. Adam's review here is exemplary, so I'll be touching on some other subjects and perspectives.

I already posted my comments to your "blogspot" so I have just copied them here, great review!

Great Review Carl G!
In 2017 after a year of retirement and not knowing what kind of hobby I should get back into, I thought back to my early days with my Pentax SP1000 and knowing I still have it in storage with a couple of lenses I started doing some research.

To make a long story short a year ago Sept 2017 I joined Pentaxforums and ordered up a K-70 with a 18-135 kit lens, now supplemented with a 55-300 ed WR, my old gear is still in storage but what a great camera (still learning) your review, I think is spot on except I think your comment on the "sounds" from the camera as there is a volume control for these effects.

Again great review and good job on reviewing the K-70 what I think many photographers, hobby or semi pro would take pride in owning, as do I. (shutter count now @ 3110)

Thanks a bunch Glad we agree, I've already seen some buyers of the K70 after my review, doubt anyone would be unhappy with it. Or any Pentax DSLR for that matter... tongue in cheek.

Thanks for this review! I love my K-70, and have been using it almost exclusively lately since my KP was stolen.
