Pentax K70
« on: January 15, 2017, 01:01:58 PM »
Does any one who any experience with the Pentax K70 ? Only I am looking to replace my existing Pentax and I have been recommended to get a K70. Currently I have a K50 but now find myself in a position to upgrade it.

 :hmm:


still trying to paint with light!!

A nice position to be in :) The last DSLR I bought was a K5, back in the mists of time. If I were to upgrade now I would go for the K3ii. A wee bit more, but looks to me like it's worth the extra expenditure.

I upgraded from my much loved K10D to a KS_2 soon after it came out . I absolutely love it now. The K70 is very similar and I'm sure you enjoy it. Received wisdom is that Pentax JPGs aren't the best  but if you shoot RAW the files are top notch. (That was so when I got the K10D and that's why I've used RAW ever since).

Thank you both for your comments, they give me much to think about out. I have spoke to my dealer who has made me an offer I cannot refuse on the K70, which I hope to pick up on Saturday.
