I had a K110D years ago and it worked okay with manual A, M and K type lenses. I think I had to set some custom function to allow use of the aperture ring on the lens. Does the K500 still allow this function? Does the focus peak feature work with manual lenses? I'm not sure what is happening to the K-50/500 with the K-S1 out now, but I see the K-500 is $399. Might be a good time to get back into an SLR again. BTW, I now have a Nikon J1. I like the compact size but it struggles with noise at...

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...
