Pentax K20D review

PentaxPentax K20D digital SLR review : In many aspects the Pentax K20D is similar to its predecessor, yet offers considerably more. In the first place, there are more pixels, of course; the trend continues. With a resolution of 14 million pixels the K20D is ahead of its close competitors, the Canon EOS 40D and its allies. The image sensor is now a CMOS and has been developed in close cooperation with Samsung. The latter also manufactures the CMOS sensor and integrates it into the GX20, which is the twin brother of the Pentax K20D. The quality should remain the same thanks to minimizing the circuitry around each photo site, thus keeping the light-sensitive area of each pixel to the same size as other companies manage on 12 MP sensors.

Pentax bayonet supports all K-mount lenses
The Pentax K20D looks a bit stubby, although it still has a compact size. If you place a pancake lens on the camera, it still fits easily into your coat pocket which makes it an ideal combination for a journalist to take pictures in the streets. All lenses with K-mount fit to the bayonet mount of the K20D. And there are heaps of these lenses; you can even use your lenses from many years ago. If you do, however, you wouldn't be able to use certain functionalities. Pentax and Nikon are the only two brands that didn’t change the bayonet mount when AF entered the field.

Pentax K20D lens with calibration function
As always, Pentax allows you to keep using your old lenses. Although you might not be able to use the 11-point SAFOX VIII auto focus motor. To correct any flaws that may occur in the lens, Pentax integrated a calibration function. This function looks like the setting possibilities on the Canon and Nikon, yet takes things further. You can actually calibrate the lens, and this is something for which you would have to go to the importer when it comes to other brands. A unique possibility proving that Pentax takes things a step further. Studio photographers will be pleased to bits to find the flash unit connection on the K20D; something on which K10D users, unfortunately, miss out.
