Excellent camera

by Peter on 2/16/2012

What's not to like? Excellent high ISO performance. Excellent DR. Compatible with every Pentax lens ever made (M42 lenses require an inexpensive adaptor). With in body shake reduction, ALL lenses benefit from that technology, even much older lenses. Camera is light, small and weather sealed.
