Re: K20D- Is it just me?


Still new to the K5 and was expecting a clear improvement in RAW images over my K20, made me realize that the K20 is not much behind the K5! will try 160 ASA (lowest K5 with DR) as opposed to the 200 ASA of the K20.

Native ISO of the K20D is 100.

A bit disappointed at the what seems to me to be underexposure,but it's coming far quicker than the K20. A great buy S/H if you can find one at the right price.

The K20D, and all Pentax cameras before it, were programmed to protect the highlights. My K-x will blow highlights fairly regularly, which annoys the hell out of me. I think Pentax changed their stance on exposing to protect highlights because reviewers, newbies and people coming from other brands complained about underexposure. IMO, Pentax was doing it right and critics were wrong, too bad they gave in.
