I purchased this Digital Camera because I have had a Pentax SLR for a number of years and I have been very happy with it. I also have some quality Pentax lenses.
I have found the camera extremely easy to use and the quality of the pictures is way beyond my expectations.
The one issue I have was clearly identified in the advert and that is some of the functionality of my other lenses cannot be used however this is a very minor issue.
I would recomend this camera to everybody who wants to take SLR digital pictures whether you are a novice or an expert. But watch the pricing I have seen them for sael at twice what I paid.
