Priced affordably at around £370 including an 18-55mm kit lens, the 10.2-megapixel Pentax K2000 may tempt quite a few people to jump into the digital SLR pool. Though the supposed niche for the Pentax K2000 consists of consumers new to the DSLR market,...

Overall, despite the Pentax K2000's stellar image quality and what the company has done to make this model appealing and easy to use, it is difficult to recommend the K2000 wholeheartedly due to its focusing shortcomings. If you have an arsenal of...

Pentax K2000 review

 

Pentax K2000

Very fast autofocus; relatively nice viewfinder; wireless flash and in-body image stabilization.

No Live View mode; poor default JPEG image settings.

Speedy performance lifts the Pentax K2000 above the cheap-dSLR masses, but bad default settings make it an iffy choice for newbies.

Pentax K2000 digital SLR camera

 

The K2000 is a beginner-friendly DSLR with excellent image quality, but its autofocus speed and controls are drawbacks.

Easy to use, handy help button, body-based image stabilisation

Limited control over autofocus, no auto-orientation sensor

Overall, despite the Pentax K2000's stellar image quality and what the company has done to make this model appealing and easy to use, it is difficult to recommend the K2000 wholeheartedly due to its focusing shortcomings.

Review: Pentax K2000 digital SLR camera

 

Priced affordably, Pentax's 10.2-megapixel K2000 may tempt quite a few people to jump into the digital SLR pool.

That’s especially true if you have a collection of Pentax lenses, as this camera accepts any lens from the Pentax line (keep in mind, though, that you may have to focus legacy lenses manually). Pentax has also retained in-body image stabilization, so...
