Pros:Body Tropicalised, menus and commands, color rendering
Cons:limited dynamic range, for use in afs
Opinion:Use this little old lady who looks back on nine years of technological advancement (almost 5 generations) is complex. Because you have to remember with what you are taking and how much we paid for it. rnal price of a fifty plasticky new fact I bought this camera that could easily be used in a storm or used to drive nails if you do not have a hammer available, more battery grip and a 18-55 tropical conditions. Despite his age and use (the previous owner had also spent some years in North Africa using it in harsh environmental conditions), the machine is perfect, no scratches it discoloration, except for the tires of the cap cover contacts for BG, as well as for the small screws on sight, partially oxidized (but not enough to ruin the apparent solidity) .rnPer regard to the image quality, I find it very good colors (very pentax) as well as the definition (in the limit of 14 mpx) to iso downs. Unfortunately the very limited dynamic range,that does not allow openings of high shadows and in those cases presents a vertical banding. But I stress that I am used to SLR with high dynamic range, from surveys of DxOMark this machine has almost the dynamic range of a 5D3 !!!
Pros:pro body, weather sealing, viewfinder, fine f, interval shooting, 14mpx with a superb performance (perhaps the best c-mos that I have tried to lower iso)
Cons:burst at 3fps now outdated.
Opinion:is a great machine, it can safely be said again his every command is there, where it should be, the sensor at low ISO is faithful in a fearful manner, the body is very solid and comfortable, pleasant to hold in high iso to mano.rnad 'age was among the best aps-c, usable without problems up to 1600 iso.rnl' af in low light limps, but also when the competitors do, so nothing eclatante.rnmolto comfortable 9-point cross. rnrngran machine, which now pays like a loaf of bread (unfairly), who takes it is definitely a bargain.
Pros:Robust, reliable and quick menu in the settings.
Cons:shots slow and not suitable for sports photos.
Opinion:I use it for 3 years and they are certainly not a professional but I have had great satisfaction especially in landscape photography. I do not think to change it for an economic issue but if I did still take a Pentax. A K-3 :) maybe it is true that at high ISO makes noise, but for long exposure and landscapes do not use these settings then in my opinion the performance remains high, then if you match a good optical yield salt definitely.
Pros:Ergonomic, sealing, long battery life thanks to the possibility to use two batteries (in the camera body and booster), strong body, excellent color rendering, stabilizer into the camera body.
Cons:Over 800 iso noise is evident, slow burst.
Opinion:The Pentax K20D SLR is a robust and very reliable, the advantage for me that I've always used Pentax, was to be able to use optical old production (FA or KA) on the K20D without losing any automation. The critical point is the noise at high ISO, forgivable when you consider that it is a reflex went into production in 2008, for the rest I think I will use the K20D still for some time.
