Wow, this is a camera! I will spend many moons learning about all it's features. Image quality is superb. With Pentax in general, I can buy the necessary lenses without having to get rid of them if I upgrade the camera. That was my primary reason for buying a Pentax. I like the automatic features with the ability to control the lens. If I want to take my time, there are all the manual possibilities. H ave yet to learn what all the numbers mean. Only wish the manual was more elementary since it's touted as an entry level SLR. This is a serious camera, and the next step up from a 'rebel' type which I owned previously. I'm excited about this as I use a camera as a reference tool since I'm an artist.
I usually shoot with a prosumer DSLR, but didn't like carrying it around with me everywhere. Although this camera is still lacks some of the speed and features of my DSLR, I carry it almost everywhere I go; thus using it more than my DSLR. I wish it were a bit smaller, but other than that, I love this thing. For me it was worth the price, but those who have no problems with some deficiencies of cell phone cameras will not see the value or need of this camera.
This is an awesome camera especially considering the price. I researched through consumer reports before purchasing and this camera rates extremely high. I also have had a love affair with Pentax going back to film days (the dark ages) They put out an easy to use durable camera free of unnecessary bells and whistles. I bought this for my 10 year old daughter that is getting into photography and I wanted a camera that would not break the first time she bumped it. This fits the bill and at an incredible price!
