Pros: Pentax

Cons: From Paolino1976 - Maybe with the 70-200 f2.8 DA* slightly inaccurate and only a few times

Opinion: From Paolino1976 "the only flaw is that shooting with the lens listed above at maximum aperture, sometimes hooks a hair more "back"... Far away. (I did some tests with the tripod anyway a matter of mm) " - Appropriate Description , Af Control Is Done at TA With PdC-DoF At Minimum . As a result, AF Fine Adjust is adjusted until the perfect AF is obtained. Adding The Rear Converter Adjustment Needs To Be Redone And Value May Vary According To Camera Used

Pros: Price, no comparison possible with entry levels of other brands

Cons: nobody

Opinion: 24 Megapixels exploited to the maximum, tropicalized, fast, usable at high iso, STABILIZED!. Along with other features such as the posable display, astrotracer etc the K-70 is in my opinion the best quality price product available on this market. Like all Pentax bodies it is compatible with all the vintage kit, which can be used with extreme ease in the MAF as it alerts you with the red dot and with BIP when the subject is in focus. It is a "young" machine, thanks to wi-fi and filters that you can apply directly in the car, it is possible through your mobile phone, to shoot and post on social media in instant.

Pros: Stabilized sensor and excellent high iso quality, handling, easy and rational controls, robustness

Cons: low-life battery life

Opinion: I bought this Pentax, a brand that I have always considered excellent, for a specific purpose, to help me in the astrophotography of the deep sky that I prefer to do without connection to a telescope, but with rather pushed photographic canvases that have less aberrations than rapid astronomical instruments with costs within my reach. I have a large terrace that unfortunately is covered to the north and this prevents me from being able to set the chaser on the polar star with the necessary precision: I thought that the astrotracer of this machine could help me and in fact compensates very well for the error of the pursuer allowing me to set myself from 10 minutes to half an hour. Above all, it allows me to shoot many poses from one or two minutes each by keeping the image in the same area of the sensor. If you take into account that the sensor holds the high iso well (rarely, however, I exceed 3200), much better than another full reflex formed by revered brand. I would say that it was a purchase more than apt and that also allows me to make excellent shots also of landscape.

Pros: Especially stabilized sensor, then double dial, ergonomics of controls, very solid construction, excellent images even at high iso, price, compatibility objectives MF Pentax K

Cons: Especially AF not like canon/Nikon of equal level, battery life not excellent (but sufficient) park objectives AF Pentax and compatible a little dated, color profiles not present on the main PP software, both commercial and open source.

Opinion: After years of inactivity, I took this machine, which I liked because it lacks some "frivolities" that Canon and Nikon charge for and that I consider useless (e.g. touch or "evolved" video functions). Pentax looks after the hard work and at a competitive price offers a very solid, tropicalized machine, with stabilized sensor, functions almost as pro, all the controls in the right place and a good sensor. The main "weakness" and for me the only one is an autofocus not on par with the competition, both in accuracy and speed. In this field it seems that Pentax is still firm to the technology of analog machines of the 90s. Nothing dramatic, with a little practice and eye there are no problems. Other flaws, not attributable to the machine, are the lack of consideration by the manufacturers of "third" optics that no longer propose lenses with Pentax attack, due to the poor market penetration of the brand. Same goes for color profiles preloaded on PP software, where the K70 is often not received. Finally, while the MF "vintage" optical fleet is very vast, the AF Pentax optics are a bit dated, often still with "screwdriver" technology or controlled by the machine body, so with some flaws in terms of accuracy and speed (as well as noise of operation). The K70 is a machine I recommend for landscapes, travel photos, portraits, macros, street. Not at ease with the sports photo and the wildlife.

Pros: It still holds well in your hand and the viewfinder is good, real new life useful to vintage lenses. Countless ways customization.

Cons: Catch in Focus: works only with targets that transmit contacts (A) directly connected to the body because if you interrupt for example an extension tube (without contacts) it still shoots out of focus; There is also no spy or icon to remind you that you have enabled the catch in focus option. You have to learn well the menus and shortcuts, the macro scene mode just not good. Small battery lasts little, too little both original and not. There is no battery grip.

Opinion: The SMC's 18-55 AL WR lens is a bit mechanically worthwhile; Although light and comfortable and the filter part does not rotate changing fire or length but does not allow you to gradually sharpen the fire immediately after the automatic one and has a game, a slack on its despicable dial. It doesn't matter if the attack is plastic, but I can't use it in a practical way to correct the fire especially in the movies; Of course I paid the whole -body with goal- conveniently 372.28th VAT included, but so much. In my hand the K-70 I hold it well, I have average size 7.5 of gloves, i do not run away and I do not touch inadvertently various buttons, but I need to look for them and if I leave the monitor (LCD screen) exposed to the body of the machine, my nose fattens it because the eyeball comes out very little, but the screen not being touch has no other problems indeed I can rotate it and turn it in a thousand other positions. The built-in flash is useful, convenient and has the same dual guide (12) as KP's. On 18-55 in this regard I immediately put this functionality to check the depth of field but I wonder why Pentax has not already preset it. Returning to the machine: The macro scene function (SCN) inexplicably prefers the most open diaphragm, even with the automatic flash activated on and/or with ISO sensitivity raised; the same "macro" photos with manual settings are much sharper -having been able to tighten the diaphragm - than those made with SCN MACRO. The view in the crosshairs is good - not as big and bright as my old Ricoh KR-10M - but certainly much more than the digital one of the Panasonic DMC-G6K that I gave. I can appreciate the focus well both with the red light in the crosshairs in the fire zone, both with the sound bib, and from the screen with the solution of glitter to the contour of the subject. I was able to experiment with mounting two old lenses for which it was not necessary to do the fine regulation of the fire, possible anyway with K-70 with memory to not remember how many different targets. A lens I tried to make a macro of a spider; nothing of that, I had an old Tamron 80-210 Adaptal 2 with P/KA hoof, diaphragm diaphragm diaphragm dial brought in A and maximum focal length, selection of the diaphragm from the machine with one of its guineas, no support but satisfied flash shot integrated! I took some quick photos as a portrait with his 18-55, on the outside it is not dark, it opens little, but it seems to make it good in both details and colors, while using it with jpg without retouching.
