5 out of 5 eggsgreat camera

Pros: Does well in low light situation.
Takes great pictures.

Cons: Small view finder is difficult to use when manual focusing. I think most DSLRs have this problem. Adding a focus prism helps, or focusing using the live-view mode.

Other Thoughts: I chose a Pentax camera because I had a Pentax film SLR and they still use the same lens mounts which saved me a lot of money. Even if I did not already have the lenses, this camera would have been worth it.
