Pentax K-70

Announced Jun 8, 2016 •
24 megapixels | 3 screen | APS-C sensor
dpreview conclusion

While not as refined as the competition, the K-70 doesn't feel crude or cheap as its predecessors. In fact, it offers the most controls and features of the competition, at a considerably lower price. For the cash-strapped enthusiast that wants complete control, there is no better value for money in the segment, and there are few flaws to make the buyer feel like they 'cheaped out'.

Good for

Landscape photographers, available light shooters, current Pentax owners looking for an affordable second body

Not so good for

Photographers looking to pack light, video shooters, action shooters
