Shutterbug review of K5


Link Posted 10/09/2011 - 15:44
The latest issue of Shutterbug has a very positive write-up of the K5, by Joe Farace. A quote:

..."while there are less expensive 16-megapixel (or more) cameras available, you won't find a better one than this. Its rugged construction and seemingly infinite capture options make it a great camera for hobbyists as well as aspiring pros who are already into the Pentax system via one of their awesome entry-level cameras such as the K-x. The inclusion of a PC connection shows that Pentax Imaging is serious about building a camera for serious photographers. If that describes you, you won't find a better, more versatile SLR around."

That and an article in Digital PhotoPro touting it as a serious alternative to a "pro" camera show that Pentax is evidently succeeding in re-establishing themselves as one of the top DSLR manufacturers.

Great to read that review having just bought a K5.

On a dark desert highway, cool Pentax K5 in my hand.
