Pentax, still great cameras and very good GLASS
Feb 18, 2013

The most bang for my buck!! When you consider that it was Asahi-Pentax that first developed the SLR-TTL format, it surprizes, that the camera is so frequently relagated to that back of the line designation. A few months back, I bought a K-01 and was not ecstatic about it. though the features were FINE, the mirror-less/ smaller ? camera I was shooting for just wasn't THERE. after a few new lenses for same, I thought what ta hell, K5 looks fantastic.....And it is. When the K5 came out in 2010 it was worth it at 1600, But adorama still has some new ones in the box now for less than 750... I've never had a better camera, and my Canon eos is taking a rest these days... RJM PhotoRamone
