Ten Years After
Posted By: maw, 07-01-2018, 07:21 PM

More than 10 years have gone by since the launch of the Pentax K20D (official date 24/gen/2008), it was my second APS-C digital Pentax (the first was *.istD),
in all these years it has never given me any trouble, it still works perfectly with all my lenses it is as solid as a rock (maybe this is the evil of all Pentax?).
With its 14 mpx 'wich now they seem few' but you can still get good results and well pictures, knowing it well.

I would like to open this discussion by inviting all the owners and not, to tell their experience and what you like or not, and possibly anecdotes or events occurred in conjunction with it.



I enclose two reviews, for those who didn't know it enough and the photo test from 100 to 6400 ISO


But for those interested, I uploaded the original images here: Original tests


K20D Review Photographic Central








100 ISO




200 ISO




400 ISO




800 ISO




1600 ISO




3200 ISO





6400 ISO

So fine to be with a camera brand and forum with a sense of history and continuity.

Good music and a great thread.
It was my first intention to introduce it with Alvin Lee, then I read that he died a few years ago, and not to mention it in this discussion or had to change the thread.
Anyway for me he remains one of the great guitarists of that period, I also read that Jimi Hendrix had a bit of jealousy for Alvin's talent. Rip ( 2013 )

I bought it when it was new 10 years ago, used for a couple of years and then forgot about photography all together. But now, a couple of months ago I started using my K20D again! A couple of shots so far:
