It is a nice little camera that suits anyone who does not want the bulk and cost of some higher end models. Against my old *istDS, AF is generally faster, AF better in lowlight, AWB much better for tungsten, exposure is more accurate and much less likely to underexpose. It is also much more power efficient against the DS. Being w/o the top LCD, all settings are being displayed on the 2.7" LCD which can be set to permanently on, or by pressing the info button. While the latter method conserves ...

If I go back in time and compare with the features my first MZ50 had, it is like comparing a horse with a rocket. I have learned to use manual settings and the new camera can help me do the "easy" way all the time. Believe me, you shall not use M mode if you can chose from an enormous amount of scene position, And there is also the Av, Tv, sensitivity priority and so on. My only concern, as an old analogue SRL user is why do I have to read such a big user manual to know everything about ...

I am extremely happy with this camera and compared it directly with the Canon XSI for a few weeks. I had a couple of K100d's which I liked but kept going back to Canon because of the colors and white balance but this one seems to have gotten the colors sorted out better with a lot of adjustments possible and the WB seems much better. I am going to stay with the K-M for a while and have fun with my old K-Manual lenses.

This camera is even worse than my ex K100D super. Image quality, exposure, WB, noise are acceptable only outdoors in good light conditions. Shake Reduction rather hopeless (does it work at all?). Fortunately I had this camera only for testing. Now I'm happy that I haven't bought it. Problems: Only problems. Frustrating camera.

Great Camera! It's leica a small German rangefinder experience in an SLR. It is a joy to use! The build quality is great. It feels solid and "right" in your hands. It misses some bells and whistles but nails the must haves. It it does have a number of user adjustable tone settings, assignable buttons, anti shake and a good viewfinder. AF is zippy and accurate and all my K, M, A, F, FA, DA and DAL lenses work great. I did buy the limited edition white package which is beautiful. The 2 kit ...

Seriously easy to use and get excellent results from. Battery life from the Sanyo Eneloops is very very good. Have used the the camera nearly every day since end of 2009, and still not getting tired of it. Beatiful build quality. I think this is a seriously underrated camera. Image quality is excellent. Am using three older lenses, one beautiful prime from the original 1975 KM. Try that on a Nikon or Canon: shake reduction is sensor based, so I get this with older lenses too. Problems: Can't ...

An excellent camera by any standards, great feature set at an entry level price. Nice and compact, especially when the "limiteds" are used. Light enough to carry around all day without noticing it is hanging around your neck. Image quality is very good in all (there are many) jpg settings, excellent in raw. Problems: none - lots of fun to use.

It's the smallest DSLR in the world with Shake Reduction. The features are from K200D. The camera can work with all lenses with bayonet K, manual lenses, MF lenses and M42 lenses. DA15+DA21+DA40+DA70 + K-m are the good set for travel. The weight of camera with DA40/2.8 - 675 gram.
