I used to have a K5IIs, and I know that one has it. I also figure the K3 does too, but what about cheaper models? Does the K50 or K500? What about the DC'd K30? Anybody know? --"Run to the light, Carol Anne. Run as fast as you can!"

I'm just looking at the direction the features are going in. Dust Removal: SP coating and CMOS sensor operation vs Sensor movement w SP coating on low pass filter. So ultrasonic DR on a Pentax entry level DSLR. No more clunky sensor thrashing. A return of entry level DSLRs with PEF support. Only rated for use down to 32F, not the 14F of the K-500. Is this the first entry level without wireless flash support with the on-board flash or is it a return? I don't know the specs of old DS and DL...

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...
