Pentax K-1 reviews

K-1 DSLR Camera with 28-105mm Lens and Accessory Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Camera & Kit Lens Punches Above This camera is the business. You get monster pro files in a body the size of most pro-sumer ASP-C cameras. - Controls are excellent - Viewfinder is awesome - Weather sealing (shouldn't every camera over $500 have this?) - Kit lens is ridiculously good. The only thing you'll notice to separate it from a "pro" lens is the smaller, variable aperture.� There are lots of reviews dogging this camera but most of the negative comparisons are pretty ridiculous apples to oranges. For instance: - Battery Life: Compare to a Canon or Nikon with an IS lens mounted and you find the battery is plenty. - Slow burst: Compared the $6.5k D4, maybe. Compared to the (2x more expensive) D810, there's no difference. - Auto-focus: Compared to D4, well nothing compares to D4. Compared to D810 and 5D, it works well. Some have mentioned a joystick would be nice. I don't disagree but I don't miss it either. - Strange articulating screen: Firstly it's awesome and very strong. Second, 5D and D810 screens don't move at all. - Video: D4 also isn't optimized for video. K-1 is optimized for still photography. They video is passable but it's not a cross-over cam. - Lenses: Most people today shoot f2.8 zooms. Pentax has you well covered here. They're not cheap, but neither are similar Canon and Nikon offerings. Pentax doesn't have as many specialty lenses like tilt-shift or fisheye. Most of these are gimmicky in the digital age and can be done if post. If you need a $3K+ 19mm f4.0 tilt/shift, you should probably budget $20K for a Nikon kit. If I had to put up some negatives: - Buffer isn't massive: not a problem for me yet, but some folks like to run rapid fire in RAW and highest resolution. I don't know who has time to edit these, but they'd do well to spend an additional $4.5K on a D4. - Joystick: If you gave me the option, I'd take it. - Lenses: Older FA Pentax lenses are awesome and cheap (FA 35 f2.0, FA 50 f1.4), but the coating are not as good as the new HD coatings. I'd love if they reintroduced more of these, with the updated coatings and the same great pricing.
