Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Complicated interface, easy to get lost if you're not familiar with the camera, Camera strap D-rings make noise, Flash sync socket cap isn't attached to the camera, and is easily lost if not screwed in tightly
  • Underwhelming 1855mm kit lens, limited buffer (incapable of 7fps burst in Raw mode), no AF in movie mode, MotionJPEG only movie files
  • No movie record button, Lacks manual video controls, Expensive
  • Fiddly SD card removal, Limited range of Pentax telephoto lenses
  • The electronic leveler can only be used in Live View mode
  • AF system not as versatile as Nikon D7000 (which is a cheaper camera), Lockable exposure mode dial can be annoying, No dedicated movie shooting button. Poorly implemented live histogram in live view/manual exposure mode
