Pros: Robust construction, tropicalised, intuitive menus and commands, dynamic range (especially with the "pixel-shift" function), native DNG files

Cons: Slightly high price, fixed display, missing built-in flash, little diffused Pentax graft

Opinion: Coming from the K-3 "normal", I found myself immediately with the commands and menus, obviously very familiar. I also found the sturdy tank construction and the storm-proof tropicalization. The ability to shoot in DNG format "native" is a plus that have few competitors even much more expensive. Also the sensor maintains the same remarkable dynamic range of the previous model, further implemented with the function "pixel Shift", which in some situation gives a nice hand, especially when using high ISO. In contrast, over the pentaprism was inserted the GPS (with Astrotracer function) and was sacrificed the built-in Flash, which on several occasions is precious to fill the shadows and as lightening flash. In my opinion maybe it was better to keep the flash, since in the Pentax price list is available at the price of a dedicated GPS module to engage on the hot shoe. It would have been much more useful to have a nice articulated display like the K-S2 or the K-70. Battery Chapter: The duration is very good, but it drops drastically if you use the GPS and/or the "pixel-shift", so it is better to have at least one spare. It's not a cheap camera, but we can stand it if you consider the endless features available and construction on a professional level. The real problem is the ever-less availability of third-party optics (read Sigma and Tamron) with Pentax-K graft. But this is another story...

Pros: Stylish line, great materials, fabulous ergonomics, fantastic sensor, tropicalized to the maximum!

Cons: a bit heavy

Opinion: I think this APS C very refreshing, really a super car! Exceptional sensor, does not mistake a reading. I use it only as a camera, I do not care about movies, I change to a K 50 and I have to say that the PENTAXs are really great machines. I think they offer something more concrete than Nikon and Canon just because they are disadvantaged by the market, which because of the importer has generated a generational vacuum. I come from the Pentax K 1000, which I still own and use from time to time and I realize that pasta have always been made by Pentax reflex cameras. The K 3 mark II is an excellent machine, under all profiles. Its cost, albeit elevated to 1,050.00 Euros only body, is not high when compared to competing cameras. I put it under the running water of the fountain, absolutely watertight!

Pros: A car body really thought, its price is far too low for what it is worth. Full of features that on other brands are paying gold.

Cons: The bad reputation of the brand, which may mean: difficulty in finding used. Maybe his weight, because he is a tank.

Opinion: I bought this car in 2015 and are two full years using it uninterruptedly. rnThe ergonomics and the position of the keys are fantastic, the menu is very intuitive. The sensor is big enough and performs well with Iso Iso, the resulting Raw is excellent as well as the high latitude of the pose (or gamma Dynamic Direction you want) which is just like Canon, Nikon, Sony for a few hundred euro more.rnI used it many times in extreme environments (-20 ° C with snow falling and 35 ° with flying sand) but you've never missed a shot. (It is important, however, to keep the batteries warm in the first case because otherwise they are discharged.) The pentax K attaches to vintage mounts, which even though they are not stabilized, the sensor (as the stabilizer is integrated into the body) .rn I also had the chance to try to make videos and the result is not bad, especially if you pair the internal stabilizer with a Glidecam or agimbal. Only flaw is the 24frame in full hd, you can go to 60fram only with 720p.rnImage microphone is still decent, although I preferred to use an external one of the Rode.rnrnThe only problem that this machine can have is weight, and I have to admit that during some demanding hikes this was felt.

Pros: Tropicalization, robustness, pixel shift, GPS and astrotracer, sensor stabilizer

Cons: Resellability, so many do not understand this brand

Opinion: A tank, robustness feels instantly, both in touch and when you press any button. The raw file has extreme workability, let alone pixel shift than exceptional color shades. Raw DNG file native. Ample Optical Optical Parks; Stabilizer on the sensor. Great White Balance Automatically. GPS with astrotracer posing B follows the motion of the stars for up to 5 minutes offering the ability to make nightmares impossible for other brands without using a trackster
