Pentax K20D

Editor's Review

The K20D is an impressive offering from Pentax in the SLR market. 14.6 megapixels (the highest in its class) captures enough detail for poster-sized prints. The 2.7-inch LCD display allows for easy review and cropping of images. An improved dust-proof and water-resistant construction ensures that the camera stays clean and functional even under the toughest conditions.

The K20D a great DSLR (Leroy (Fish) — 01/05/2009)

When I decided it was time for me to go digital, I was quite intent on reinvesting in the Pentax brand, primarily because of my positive experience with Pentax cameras. So, I began my research in earnest. I decided on purchasing the K10D but eventually deferred my decision. By the time I became comitted to the purchase, only the K20D was available at my favourite store. I reluctantly made the purchase of the K20D without much prior Knowledge.

I'm happy to declare that I am extremely satisfied with the K20D. I find it to be quite user friendly and the picture quality is excellent. The pictures are poster sized quality and picks up minute details.

With good quality lens and basic knowledge the Pentax K20D makes picture taking a fantastic experience. The K20D is a great DSLR. It might very well be the best in its class.

Best value... (Alan Schamber — 11/21/2008)

There's little to say. I think the only downside is the only 3 frames per second.... but still, is quite enough for most people, and most shooting conditions. All the rest, is the best in it's class.

Try it, and enjoy it...

Alan.

Pentax K20D (Dale Whitmore — 09/01/2008)

This is the best camera for picture quality and ease of use that I have ever used.
I purchased the camera with a Pentax 18-200mm lens and would highly recommend this combination.
The Pentax K20D for all of its advanced features is remarkably easy to use; it can take professional quality pictures in any weather condition. You cannot find a better camera for an Alaska fishing trip or an African safari.
The pictures from this camera are absolutely stunning! My primary reason for purchasing this camera was picture quality in an all weather DSLR camera. I looked at a number of cameras and settled on the K20D and I'm convinced that I got the best camera in its class and excellent value for my money.
The editing software that comes with the camera is adequate but I preferred Corel Paint Shop Pro, for the cost it’s a very good program, with a free trial period which allows you to test it before you buy.
Overall I would highly recommend this camera, even to a first time DSLR buyer.
