Pentax Optio 550 review

I'll never buy another Pentax again unless you want to just look at it

Fit and finish good
options good
Battery life is outstanding

Problems:

Extreme low light noise
grossly distorted pictures.
Difficult focusing
When I approached customer service on the distortion. Their answer was within acceptable limits. CRAP! I took and compared the same photos with another major brand. No contest.. I'll never buy another Pentax again unless you want to just look at it
