Pros: optical viewfinder, material quality, compactness, image quality, battery life

Cons: overstuffed menu, fixed monitor, some functions not immediate to recall

Opinion: I couldn't resist the charm of pure black and white and I let myself be seduced. Already the owner of a Leica M246 monochrom, I had extensively experienced in the field the quality and dynamic range of a sensor without a Bayer filter and above all the experience of using a camera designed solely for black and white. The return to the use of a reflex camera also attracted me further, obviously for the optical viewfinder which, in my opinion, is unparalleled. The machine is very well built and is very solid, made of metal and tropicalized. It's not a feather but that also means a guarantee of quality. It grips really well thanks to a well-designed grip. The body has numerous customizable keys and a rich menu, perhaps too rich. I often struggled to find my way around the thousands of voices and sub-voices, but then you slowly get used to it. The AF is excellent, even if I prefer meditated and often static photography, I have not had the opportunity to verify its effectiveness in more dynamic and/or sporty situations. The black and white it renders is soft and full of details, rather natural and never artificial or too digital. It is very reminiscent of the density of the film. However, it must be combined with quality optics. It gives its best with the high ISO and the grain it returns is really pleasant and contributes to images with a very particular vintage look. Compared to the Leica M246, it holds highlights better while the recovery of shadows is truly remarkable. Niche camera but highly recommended for lovers and purists of black and white.

Pros: Ergonomics, viewfinder, construction, details, stabilization, tropicalization... In short, the usual Pentax stuff before it was discovered by others to become important. A real pleasure to use. I obviously add the monochrome sensor and a new exposure mode (also present in the normal k3III) that fits like a glove on the monochrome sensor.

Cons: Monochrome sensor.. :) Plus some small things such as the badly placed photo review button, the menu that for those who come from the Pentax world leaves you a moment displaced, as well as the different display of the viewfinder focus point compared to previous models, in addition to the various features and AF modes to be studied and not immediately understood for the practical and most appropriate use.

Opinion: A monochrome sensor isn't for everyone who generally writes they love black and white. It has strengths and strengths, but also flaws and weaknesses. Everyone can inform themselves about this (or rather they must inform themselves) and decide accordingly what is best for them. It works great at high-very high iso; The files are really very malleable and clean. The way you set up and expose is noticeably different than with a camera with a bayer filter. Underexposing is not a problem. Err on the top and burn the lights you. :) Mounted on a reflex with interchangeable lenses with many features, equipped with a valid AFC, and which allows you to range from 12 mm to 450mm makes it very versatile for all those who until now have turned to super bright lenses and NR programs mainly to avoid raising the iso. The monochrome sensor allows you to rewrite the exposure triads by raising the iso to high values (unthinkable for an apsc) while also providing a very good file. Starting from high ISO, in my opinion, you have better files in terms of cleanliness and workability even than a common FF sensor (I also have a k1). The ability to open the shadows is really incredible and I was already used to it well. You can raise the slider up to 5 stops and then start again with another 2-3 stops later :) However, the noise remains pleasant (according to my tastes :)), less invasive and in my opinion it is the one that can be closer, when present, to the grain of the film. I haven't had a chance to do print tests yet, but I'm working on it. :) I took it to use it for street photography, a tip and shoot with autoiso up to 25.600 in TAV is really killer in any situation, but I will also have ways to use it for concerts, some night (remember that it also has astrotracer integrated), and as an option also for the little nature and sport that I practice. It could also be interesting for weddings and in general for all those situations in which you have to reconcile fast times and wider depth of field. I think it's a camera that can provide many valid, alternative and even creative solutions since the camera body can really help to squeeze the monochrome sensor between double exposures, multiple exposures, interval shots, and why not even some timid approach of a less basic star.

Pros: well-built camera body, high ISO hold, really clear menus

Cons: ... The display, if used a lot in live view, warms up a bit

Opinion: This is really a "very first impression".... I have had the car for a few days and I have not had the opportunity to test it for long. However, as much as I used it, I can say that it is a well-made, well-built, robust machine (pentax takes care of the details, right from the packaging... TOP). The menu is clear (I use a sony A r5 as the first camera body and the menus are "a chaos"). Obviously, we are facing a niche object ... It is a monochrome sensor (it does not seem possible to have this as the first and only body). It holds up very well to high ISO: up to 6,400 and 12,800 there are no defects or aberrations. Beautiful images really (then, you can shoot directly in DNG, belloooooo) Bought to make street and book (commercial works) of a certain quality. Who will live will see(!!) I was torn between this body and the Leica Q2 Monochrom. Really happy with the choice, I wouldn't go back.
