Pros: Lightness, qualidità, detail of the images that even the competitors from much higher you dream, reliability band in any situation, high ISO seal of semi professional level, tonal range and color of the lights

Cons: You always dirty sensor and self-cleaning system is absolutely ridiculous and useless, the battery lives less than a butterfly, viewfinder imprecise

Opinion: It was my first SLR purchased in the "far" 12-11-2011, remember that day like it was yesterday, paid with 18-55 kit € 720. Even today, I own and use primarily in travel because of its negligible weight, but if there is to churn out top quality files (for un'APSC) this does not bear comparison even with super emblazoned Canon 70D or Nikon D7100, that to price range are more than lower. The body is not weather sealed, but to me (perhaps because my vast fortune) seems to me a hoax because one evening leaned in a jar and found the next morning completely underwater with a lot of grafted goal. That night there was a storm of rain but strangely she worked perfectly. The RAW files are very soft and well manageable in post, though perhaps sometimes too dishes contrasts (often tends to over-expose, but very slightly, highlights). However, everything solved with a polarizer to the limit or with an ND filter. Even with the 18-55 DAL it does not make me regret Octoberic better performance although the latter dim. I also own a Canon 40D and I must say that in comparison, at night, the Pentax Kr from the hard time at what was and for many still is the queen of semipro. The high ISO strength is amazing really, but you should not overdo it though, because already in 3200 the noise is felt really (we're still talking about a pseudo "entry level." Take even at ISO 6400 but the baked files are really night compromises and unusable so best not to overdo it. sensational machine anyway even if the dirt on the sensor is a plague of Christ; I do not know why but you always dirty and often are forced to pull out of the mirror to clean it with meticulous attention otherwise it's just a waste of time. this is why I get scared to take it out for a day of photos, the dust on the sensor is always there. for this use as the first body the Canon 40D. the very much recommend the Pentax Kr, with emotions that reallytoday still few can give, pity that the mark is not understood and publicized properly. I, however, are waiting to take the new k1 I tried. Meanwhile, I enjoy the new Canon 5D Mark III

Pros: very solid construction, reliability, ergonomics, driving stabilization

Cons: AF accuracy, external flash management

Opinion: What, it is my first digital SLR (the still use). 5 years together and never a problem of reliability (both used at -10 ° to +40). Excellent for entering the world of digital SLR, allowing to learn a lot and experience equally. Excellent (in its class) for photos outdoors and in the studio, not for sports and reportage photos indoors (for AF accuracy / speed). With the optics of a certain quality, the photo quality is very good in my opinion. Experimenting a lot with the flash off-camera, it lacks a management of the same level in the canon and nikon, but on this front is all the Pentax range to be absent one step below the two competitors. Beyond this, the Pentax Kr has prorpio loyal to me!

Pros: Soundness, performance, excellent stability at high ISO

Cons: small size, tropicalisation

Opinion: I own this Pentax for almost three years, and I must say I'm really pleased, because I had the good fortune to inherit from a relative few optical analog, which have served me a lot and made me save a lot of stress that I was able soldi.rnVorrei to test models of other brands of seiche band, and I have to say that none of these has the performance as high as the kr. rnIo use this machine for my work (restorer) as well as a passion for photography and then I happen to use a variety of fields and I have to say that I have always given excellent results, even with the icy cold there in the winter yards. The color rendition is very good, the white balance is very efficient but above the yield at high ISO in low light conditions are very good for a spot of its segment. The only flaws that this machine is its small size and then sealing it with my work I often impolverarla threatening to ruin it, in fact I've been thinking about switching to the K-3 for questo motivo.rnL 'only major flaw of Pentax in my opinion is that it advertises very little, and that really does pay especially a blunder everything, especially the optics, which definitely a very high quality, but in my opinion that encourages people to buy goals other brands in price a bit more vantaggiosi.rnPs. it is not true that Pentax has a limited choice of ottiche.rn

Pros: Great feautures, Ergonomic, Rugged, Incrdibile withstand high ISO stabilization on the camera body.

Cons: In addition to the limitation in the park optical, non-sealing, I have not found such serious defects do not recommend it.

Opinion: Great entry level SLR, if it can be defined. Held at high iso, photos usabilissime up to 6400 ISO. Ability to use (via adapter) AA lithium batteries, then the absence of the battey grip non-existent ... Rather less cluttered by having to carry around. The AF is not always perfect, but compared to other entry level brands even more famous has nothing to envy .... Indeed! The only real flaw, if I may say so, is the scarcity and difficulty in obtaining optical compared to "rivals."

Pros: light, solid, stable, seal high iso, compatible with old lenses,

Cons: f not always precise lack of battery grip

Opinion: Good SLR to start learning, especially coupled with some old optical mf. large estate at high iso photos usabilissime up to 6400 iso very light and compact you hold with ease and functions are always at hand since the price at which you buy I think it's really a best buy unless you have points those supertele from millemila euro in catalog pentax missing
