Our review

Although the overall specification is pretty good for this level of camera, the K-m/K2000 struggles to stand out from the crowd given the mediocre JPEG quality and poorly implemented autofocus system.

Good for: Pentax users on a tight budget

Not so good for: Absolute beginners or JPEG shooters
