Despite its many frustrating features (and I keep finding more) this is a great little camera at an unbeatable price that takes some amazing pictures. Macro pictures in bright sunlight are difficult - focus peaking only works if you can see the screen! The rubber door is inane and the On/Off switch keeps bumping to On. Perhaps this camera is a good candidate for Eye-Fi. However I have been asked to do the photography for a music festival (indoor) and I have opted for the K-01 with a Sigma 17-70/2.8.
For the price and considering the range and versatility of what it can do, this is a remarkable camera. No, it does not do as good a job as any of my Pentax DSLR's but that means a load of stuff to pack and constant attention to security. To get the best out of it, this is a camera for a serious enthusiast or at least someone who wants to spend the time getting to know how to use it to best advantage. I would not recommend it to someone who wants to point and shoot. As a stand-by that I can leave in my car without undue concern I can think of few that would be better.
Th rubber side access door is idiotic, there is no weather resistance which means it will also be susceptible to dust and condensation, and (something I haven't seen mentioned) the On/Off and function dial are easily displaced when taking in/out of some cases, the LCD is a pain in bright light and the auto focus is awful (it is years since I have had a camera that worked that badly) especially in low light. It does however take beautiful pictures. The price had plummeted when I bought mine, so I am not complaining, but I will review any future new Pentax products very carefully before buying.
