5 out of 5 stars   Great bang for the buck
By Turing (Boston, MA) July 11, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax K-50 Digital SLR Camera Zoom Kit with 18-55 and 50-200 WR Lenses + AF200 Flash (EMPKK50KT250200K)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: 1. Great bang for the buck! ($600 for 2 weather-sealed lens, weather-sealed camera body, 1 external flash, a card and a bag) 2. Image quality is very good 3. Good ergonomics, easy-to-navigate menu system. The green button to reset exposure compensation is really nice. 4. Lots of features for the price: 2 control dials, weather-sealing, image stabilization built in sensor, etc.
Cons: None for the price.
Other Comments: If you are going pro, Nikon or Canon probably are better choices. Pentax lenses are limited and are more expensive. I bought 2 prime lenses (50/1.8 and 35/2.4), they are both very sharp, but the autofocus is not ultrasound. (slow and noisy). They are completely plastic. All plastic is good for hobbyists due to lightweight, but may not be rugged enough for a pro.

1 out of 5 stars   very poor quality. Watch out before you buy it!
By Will June 26, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax K-500 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 50-200mm f/4-5.6 Lenses (PKK500KT250200K)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Two lens with the Pentax k500 at $499 is definitely a good deal. However I didn't realize it's so much hassle with the quality. At least it should work normally...
Cons: Purchased this bundle 3 months ago and thought it was a good deal. However just recently the camera started to show all kinds of serious issues that prevented me from shooting pictures. The camera won't auto focus anymore with the view finder almost blocked to dark and there's always more than 3 times of loud shutter clicks for a single shooting. I can hear clearly that the lens is rotating hard to focus but it just can't focus at all. It happens 80% of the time I'm using the camera. Very frustrating since it's a fresh new one. The product obviously has quality issues. Used Nikon before and never experienced such issues. Since buy dig.com has only 45days for returning, I have to contact the manufacturer for service. It's just a hassle..

4 out of 5 stars   Pentax K-500 Digital SLR Camera with 1-55mm & 50-200mm lenses
By Pete (Harvest, Alabama) June 21, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax K-500 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 50-200mm f/4-5.6 Lenses (PKK500KT250200K)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I bought a Pentax film camera long ago and it was a great camera for that time. This camera is no disappointment either. This camera takes great digital pictures and has many upgrades in the software settings. You can even take short astronomical pictures as the camera can track the stars for up to 5 minutes using the sensor shake cleaning mechanism built in it as listed in the manual. Bulb setting is with a cable switch. This is a great camera for the money and my purposes. It has face recognition too for snap shots. It can also take HD movies as well, although I haven't tried those yet. This camera uses 4 AA batteries and I have not had to changed them out yet after taking many pictures. The CMOS sensor allows less power drain in this camera. I didn't use the flash. The lenses that were included with this camera are light in weight and have good definition. You can get adapter rings for this camera to use other brand of lenses if you need too. I have bought other items from this dealer in the past and have always been pleased doing business with them.
Cons: I don't have any cons as of yet for the Pentax K-500 camera.
Other Comments: I have another lens I bought for this camera and I use it the most, It is a 70-300mm macro lens. I take pictures of high flying aircraft for fun and see if I can get good detail. Some pictures are included - not aircraft. Use them any way you want. I hope I picked the right attached pictures for the lens I described,

5 out of 5 stars   Nice bundle
By Dave W (Springfield, OH) June 18, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax K-50 Weatherproof DSLR Bundle with 18-55mm And 50-200 WR Lenses Plus Eyefi Card (PKK501855GBN)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Yes, it comes with the bag and the memory card. No, the description doesn't say that it does but the picture shows them. Body is army green with black, which really isn't objectionable considering the price difference. Really amazingly fast auto focus speed and great to use in full auto mode. My wife and I can use it in point and shoot mode when we don't feel like being a photographer. Will work with any Pentax K (with programming changes), KA or later (no programming) lens so if you're a Pentax fan, no need to buy new lenses.
Cons: The included lenses aren't great for low light, but then Pentax doesn't make any really low light lenses in varifocal varieties for their DSLR cameras, however you can buy older fixed focal length (note FIXED FOCAL LENGTH) KA lenses and the camera will work quite well with them. The old 50mm KA lenses are very practical for general walking around photography and are f1.7 to f2.2 depending on which model you buy.
Other Comments: While you're buying, if you're upgrading from older equipment, buy a Wein adapter so you can use your old flash equipment. Far less expensive than the dedicated Pentax flash for this camera. No, it doesn't do anywhere near as much. Yes, it requires you to manually program your photos and if it's really dark you'll have to manually focus at distances over about 50 feet but you'll save a whole bunch of money if you ever do that kind of photography.

5 out of 5 stars   Great Camera
June 18, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax K-50 Weatherproof DSLR Bundle with 18-55mm And 50-200 WR Lenses Plus Eyefi Card (PKK501855GBN)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Easy to use Great quality pics Weatherproof Battery options
Cons: Colors- Tried getting this camera in a fun color like red or white and it's difficult. Didn't think I would like the "army green" but I love it. It has a nice texture and it's not black so I can spot my camera easily!!
Other Comments: Fast and easy transaction. I saw this bundled elsewhere with a flash and that would have been more useful to me as I already had a great camera bag, but the other place didn't have the camera...it was forever backordered, so no complaints. Would do biz again with buydig!!
