Pentax K20D review

I switched from canon eos 350d to K20d after being disappointed with it's picture quality. At the same time one of my friends got a canon eos40d. We, both amateurs, ran a camparison series of photography and vow, eos40d was nothing even close to my pentax. I am so satisfied with its results that I'm now uploading my pictures here and there. I have listed some problems bellow, but honestly, I don't even think about them anymore when I'm shooting now. It's a pleasure to have a k20d by my side.


No separate focusing aid beam. Some sluggish autofocus in the dark with non-SDM lenses. No automatic flash pop up even in green mode. Somewhat tiny power on switch, which cannot be operated with gloves. Rudimentary liveview mode.
