PENTAX K-50 AND K-500 UNVEILED REVIEWS


Both models share many commonalities


Both the K-50 and K-500 sport the same 16.28MP APS-C CMOS  sensor that features in the K-30 although each now offers a higher maximum sensitivity of ISO 51.200.

Each camera incorporates a SAFOX IXi+AF module which comprises 11 focusing points, nine of which being cross-type, and each can be programmed to fire at 6fps on its full resolution. The two cameras also share a pentaprism viewfinder. which offers an approximate 100% field, as well a 3in LCD screen with a 921k-dot resolution. HD video is recorded at a choice of frame rates, including 30 fps.

the two cameras only differ in a handful of areas, the primary one being the 81 seals around the K-50's body which are said to make it weather resistant and dustproff. because of this the K-50 will come as a kit option with a new smc Pentax-DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5/6AL WR lens while the K-500 wll be bundled with the smc Pentax-DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL alternative.

A further difference between the K-50 and K-500 is that the former will feature focus point indicators in the viewfinder and also a digital level while the latter will offer neither. Pentax's omission of focus point indicators has proved controversial in the past. and was one ciritism we had of the Pentax K-x

Both models are available now at Amazon
