Hi, according to the specs the K50 and K500 have a 77 point metering sensor. Is it still that faulty unit, that make Pttl so amusing or did they replace it? THX for your replies Albert

My daughter is looking for her first DSLR and has a eye on the K-500. I looked up the differences to the K-50 on the german Pentax homepage and found: lack of weather sealing no electronic horizon no DOF preview When comparing the different homepages of Pentax / Ricoh, the german page says it has a focus confirmation in the viewfinder, the UK and US page has no information about this. The german homepage leaves out the DOF preview, the US page says it has. I would appreciate, if someone can...

Can you tell whether there is much difference between the Pentax -K500 and K-5 except for the weather resistance? Does the IQ have much difference between the K-500 and K-5? Thank you.

I just upgraded from a K-100D to a K-500.  What an amazing camera - I'm so happy I finally moved up!  My question is about the sensor shift mechanism.  The sensor in the K-500 seems to move around much more easily and noisily than the K-100.  When I have an old manual lens (m series 100 mm macro) mounted on the K-500 and am using the live view/focus peaking, the sensor moves around and makes noise with the slightest movement of the camera.  Is that just normal operation of the sensor shift...

Just now I read two articles on here about a Pentax K-500 and the Canon 100D. After that I read that the Pentax' AF is less than Canon/Nikon's. So and then I found some articles about the D(3100/)3200/3300 and the D5100. I have no clue how to differentiate them. At the moment I use a Canon S100 and I want better image quality. Overall and in low-light scenes. The ability to use a lens for objects further away is nice as well since the S100 has only 5x zoom. I had a Alpha 100 in the past. I...

I know that all of Pentax's DSLRs from the 1stD to today's K50 & K500 will take Pentax M & A series "legacy" lenses and will even, with an adaptor, accept Takumar screw-mount lenses. Has anyone used some of these lenses on the newer Pentax DSLR bodies (especially those with a focus-peaking function).  If so a couple of questions: We hear that older glass is not "tuned", "adapted" to/for digital photography, yet I've used several Pentax legacy lenses on my micro four-thirds Panasonic G1 body,...

Hello everybody,I am fairly new to photography. I have always been keen on taking good photos, but never got to buying a good camera. I currently own a Ricoh CX3, which I bought for about 120 Eur two years ago. I then fell in love with the macro mode on this thing, besides for a compact camera in the price range of Rollei or a Praktica it does take some pretty darn nice photos actually.Now I am considering a move up. I already read a lot about beginners DSLRs and managed to narrow my choice...
