I've been truly impressed with the results produced by this camera. The detail is phenomenal (I print 14x24), and the RAW files are very forgiving to exposure adjustments. Problems: In all but the simplest of situations, flash exposure is still a problem. The cameras has a tendency to severely underexpose a shot to protect often meaningless highlights (i.e., very small areas of specular reflections). If only it made its choices as it does in its non-flash shots... I'm talking to Pentax ...

Upgraded from K10D and no regrets at all, big improvements in autofocus, High ISO appreciated. On K10d I had difficulties to focus on infinity on FA35/2 and FA50/1.4 , now it works perfectly, even at low lights conditions.

I am very satisfied with my K20 which I have had for 6 weeks. I have taken it on 2 trips and numerous local hikes. The image quality is everything I wanted, and I like not having to worry about the weather. Low light performance (to 1600ISO) is very good. Operating the camera is very satisfying, increasingly so as I become more familiar with all the controls. I have not had a true high performance camera in the past, and I really appreciate being able to have so much control (when I want ...

This is a very solid, well-featured and capable camera, especially at the price level it belongs to. Pros The extensive feature set Image quality - especially at higher iso settings The KAF bayonet and the ability to use older legacy lenses with focus confirmation and exposure measurement Very good viewfinder Cons Relatively low fps - may be a restriction for some (action photography) Problems: None whatsoever

what a camera - how long will it be ignored here?. It has so many features which really make sense and combines this with an outstanding image resolution, low noise, a superb handling and such a cheap price. I always like the situation, when a David wins succesfully against the goliaths - the K20D is such a winner type. The image quality was really superb (even with a Tamron 18-250 mm). This camera seems to be constructed for low light conditions as it combines a great built-in shake ...

A wonderful camera, rock-solid and of professional-level. Also a digitsl SLR starter user can quickly get good results with its easy to use 'green mode'. Consider that AF is quick and effective, it has shake-reduction built-at sensor level, live-view and digital preview, dinamic range expansion, PEF and DNG native raw format, top 14,6 Mpx CMOS sensor in aps-c category, improved image processing. Even with starter lenses (DA 18-55mm AL II and DA 50-200mm) you'll get high quality pictures. ...
