It seems like a great Value for the newest version of Pentax.
DxOMark Sensor Scores 78, so its not bad + 50mm DA prime lens is very sharp and overall I believe it's great value.

Insane price for a fantastic bit of kit. The controls are an acquired taste but performance knocks the socks of any canon or Nikon at this price

Speaking as a Pentax owner.
Why this camera was ever developed is as mystifying as the K-01 brick.

No its very good, great features and well reviewed at this price point, not all Pentax users like change though and this style is a bit of a departure from thier other camers

I have a pentax, love it and thoroughly recommend them as a brand

I've been looking at this camera. has some awesome specs and the 50mm lens is my favourite do it all lens

Sensor isn't fantastic I would avoid personally. The k50 sensor is superior. Don't solely believe dxo, or we would all buy Nikon

Looks like a fantastic camera if you can get past the catasrophically ugly styling. By the way, I am a Pentax owner and have a lot of respect for their DSLs but what were they taking when they designed this?

I'm sure it's great but maybe not at the original price point.

Look, like the K-01 once it is reduced it makes the proposition much more palatable. Just, who would pay full price? I'd pay the going rate for the K-5, K-50, K-500, K5II, K-5 IIs, the K-3, the upcoming K-FF, the medium format 645Z (hey you mainstreamers where's YOUR MF offerings?). The K-01 was a steal for the tech when they discontinued it, this is probably the same.

Anyway, these guys sum up Pentax very well.

FF to 16:30 for the bad, 8:25 for the good.

p.s. I still love my K-5 and the Vivitar S1 90mm I was using on it today.
