Sticky: Pentax MX-1 In-Depth Review

Just picked up the MX1 (silver version) for $299.00. So far I am pleased with the picture quality and I like the old style body design. Not sure if I would have paid $499.00 for it when it was first released, but for $299.00, well worth the price. As compared to my Canon G16, it is a little slower to autofocus, but picture quality is very comparable.

I just bought the silver version of the MX-1 and like it very much. It focuses very fast. (But not quite as fast as my Canon G16). I think the best thing I like about the MX-1 is the ultra super close macro mode. For the low price, I would say you need to get it.

It chipped off a little. Not worn. Thanks for the input.

Just noticed yesterday from a photo outing (had a great photo day minus this issue). Noticed that the black paint coating was coming of the camera body right next to the SD card slot door. This was not due to excessive wear due to abuse. All I do is place my hand over the area when I hold the camera (never dropped it and never scratched it with anything that would take the paint of). Since I just purchased it at the beginning of February 2014, would this be something that Pentax-Ricoh would fix for free under the one year warranty? Opinions or experience by any other members with this same issue or warranty work with Pentax-Ricoh would be much appreciated. Thanks folks.

Kit lenses - are they good enough for the K3?

Yes, they are good enough, but what is your definition of good enough? Are you satisfied with the results? If you would put the more expensive glass on the K3, you will notice better image quality in certain types of photography (Marco shots for sure). Yes, the old DA 18-55 is definitely a bit aged (I had it as a kit lens with my Pentax *ist DS back in the day) and a bit louder when auto-focusing, but I did get pretty nice results with it back then. However, if I put the newer DA 18-55 WR on it you may get slightly better results (less noisy autofocus noise for sure), but I'm not sure it would be light years ahead. Just my two cents.

The shot does lean more towards my daughter than the cold weather. I just thought it was funny, terrible blizzard, but still I have to go play with my friend, since we have no school. Plus, to be honest it gave me an excuse to put the weather sealing on my K3 to the test. Love this camera.:)

Agreed. I usually don't use borders or frames, but I've been doing iPad Air editing only (to see if I can do all post processing without being dependent on a computer). For this shot, it didn't look too bad. Thank you so much for the kind words.

What Was The First Thing You Noticed About The K-3?

The design and definitely the well thought out ergonomics. This body design is my favorite out of all the DSLRs I have owned (DSLRs owned to date: Nikon D70, D50, D300S, D600, D800E/Canon 50D & 2 Canon 7Ds/Konica-Minolta Maxxum 7D/Sony A350/Pentax *ist DS & K-7/ & Olympus E-1 & E300). The K-3 is a great feeling little TANK of joy!:)
