  • The Pentax K-S2 D-SLR packs a lot of features into its weather-sealed body, but its burst shooting capability is very limited and its companion Wi-Fi app needs some work.


  • The Pentax KS-2 has a lot of good things on offer here. While most people are generally swayed towards Canon or Nikon when purchasing their first DSLR, unless you already have some lenses and/or accessories, it’s worth knowing about other options on the market, especially when they are capable of producing some good results.
    For the money, and the level it is aimed at, the Pentax KS-2 offers some excellent features which you wouldn’t always expect.


  • Pentax is pitching the K-S2 as a 'family' camera, but its powerful features, twin control dials and weatherproofing will appeal to enthusiasts too. The specs are like the K-S1's, but the design is much more grown-up.


  • Coming across very much like a DSLR in medium-format clothing, the Pentax 645Z combines intuitive handling with impeccable image quality in a body that's actually fairly portable compared to its peers. The Pentax 645Z is also one of the most full-featured medium-format cameras on the market, but not only that, it delivers great performance and weather-resistant build quality too, and even video shooting!
    The Pentax 645Z builds on the proven handling of the company's DSLR cameras.


  • Despite being at the 'more affordable' end of the digital medium format camera market, the Pentax 645Z is solidly built and weatherproof. It's also easy to use and produces superb images with huge amounts of detail.


  • The Pentax K-3 is the most refined K-mount SLR to date, offering fast autofocus and superb image quality. Its video autofocus implementation isn't the best, but it still manages to snag our Editors' Choice award.


  • The Pentax K-3 is the most full-featured prosumer DSLR camera on the market, but not only that, it also delivers great performance, weather-resistant build quality, slick handling and excellent image quality too. The K-3 certainly has what it takes to compete with its main rivals, the Canon EOS 70D and Nikon D7100.
    The Pentax K-3 builds on the proven handling of the K-5 II camera.


  • A completely weatherproof body, good image quality and intuitive handling puts the K-3 cat among the pigeons, but there's still work to do if Pentax is to seriously compete with the DSLR options from Canon and Nikon.


  • A reasonable option for an entry-level dSLR, the Pentax K-50 should satisfy if you need the weather-sealed design. But while acceptable, it and its cheaper sibling the K-500 lag behind the competition in image quality and performance.


  • The Pentax K-50 is a fully weather-sealed D-SLR camera with an big optical viewfinder and fast burst shooting capability. It's available to order in any of 120 color combinations, but its video functionality is behind the times.


  • While it won't win any awards for originality, the Pentax K-50 remains an excellent stills camera that offers decent weatherproofing and handling at a price that won't break the bank, making it a great introduction to the world of DSLR cameras.


  • A reasonable option for an entry-level dSLR, the Pentax K-50 should satisfy if you need the weather-sealed design. But while acceptable, it and its cheaper sibling the K-500 lag behind the competition in image quality and performance.


  • The Pentax K-500 boasts top-notch image quality, and a pentaprism viewfinder, which is unheard of at its entry-level price point.


  • We can't think of any other similarly priced DSLR that offers so many features, so if you can live with the lack of weatherproofing that the more expensive K-50 offers, the new Pentax K-500 makes the perfect first DSLR for stills shooters.
