Additional Pentax K20D review comments :
-Image-wise the Pentax K20D provides appealing warm and rich colors when it is left on its factory default settings, and reproduction when using the supplied lens is extremely sharp. However, these positives can’t take away from the fact that the Pentax K20D is more expensive for anyone who does not need a high resolution DSLR camera for printing large images or the tough exterior.
-The Pentax K20D Digital SLR camera is a decent camera that comes with enough features to keep both travel photographers and top-end enthusiasts, maybe maybe even some pros, happy. While the 14.6 megapixel sensor is a huge positive, it is the Pentax’s combination of function, intuitive layout, and relative ease of use that really make it stand out.
Compare to the Canon EOS 450D Rebel XSi. The Pentax K20D is slightly more expensive, and also marketed as a higher end model, then the Canon 450D.
