Pentax K20D review
May 20, 2009

Since I own a number of legacy lens from Pentax this camera was a "natural" choice. Not only, that I'm happy with it, I'm really satisfied. It is virtually the best in supporting old lenses without auto-focus and auto-exposure. To get the most out of it, I replaced the built-in screen with a Focusing Screen with Split Prism and Microprism Collar. So, I get the accuracy and the so-called old-fashioned feeling of the film-days together with the superior quality of the digital sensor.

Problems:

I can easily cope with the weaknesses of the AWB, as mentioned sometimes in other people's reviews.
