Pentax K-70 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Pentax K-70 is a new, mid-range, aggressively priced camera from Pentax. It's an update and replacement for the older K-50 camera, complete with a high-quality viewfinder and LCD monitor for framing and reviewing shots. But what is the photo...

Pentax K-70

 

If like me you enjoy a good manual then this unit should make you happy. The manual I saw was in PDF format – sadly not something to read in the bath – and it is 156 pages with 144 pages before the safety and warranty pages, bliss.

The Pentax K-70 is available from the link below for £799 with the 18-135mm lens as I reviewed.

Pentax K-70 Review

 

We review the new Pentax K-70, Pentax's latest DSLR features a 24 megapixel sensor and a number of features from Pentax's higher end DSLRs.

The Pentax K-70 offers a 24 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with excellent noise performance, as well as the ability to take extremely sharp detailed images thanks to Pentax' Pixel Shift Resolution feature. This is particularly impressive with still life,...

Pentax K-70

 

The Pentax K-70 is an affordable SLR with the benefit of weather sealing, but like most of its competitors, its Live View focus system is underwhelming.

24MP image sensor. Vari-angle display. In-body image stabilization.Pixel Shift Resolution and AA Simulation options. Weather-sealed design. Pentaprism viewfinder. Strong dedicated APS-C lens library.

Burst shooting rate doesn't match up to specs. Modest Raw shooting buffer. Clunky Wi-Fi app.

The Pentax K-70 is an appealing SLR for photographers who don't often dabble in video capture. Its all-weather design is appealing for nature and landscape work, especially when coupled with the Pixel Shift Resolution feature. Action photographers will...

Shaking up the market: Pentax K-70 Review

 

The Pentax K-70 is an upper entry-level DSLR that combines enthusiast level features and clever use of its image stabilization system at a fiercely competitive price. So what did we make of it? Read more

The Pentax K-70 takes place of the K-S2, with ergonomic improvements that make it feel like a much more serious camera, and Raw image quality that is among the best the APS-C sensor size has to offer. It may not offer the outright speed of mirrorless...

The Pentax K-70 packs a lot of features for a cheap price

 

Pentax adds an affordable, weather-resistant dSLR model to its enthusiast lineup, the K-70. In many ways it's essentially the less power-user-focused K-S2, but with a design that targets gloved-hand operation and with an updated autofocus system.

Pentax K-70 Review

 

The Pentax K-70 is a new mid-range 24.24-megapixel DSLR camera. Key features include a 24 megapixel APS-C sensor with an anti-aliasing simulator rather than an optical anti-aliasing filter, a vari-angle LCD screen, 11-point SAFOX X Hybrid AF system,...

The Pentax K-70 is outwardly a minor refresh of 2013's K-50 DSLR camera, offering a very similar control layout with a better, deeper grip and new thumb-rest. Inside, though, are a lot of improvements inherited from the more expensive K-3 II and...
