My reasons for rating this camera as 4.5/5.0 ---classification. 1. construction: very well built - sturdy body. Buttons at in areas that are easy to reach. The screen is bold and colourful. 2. features: nicely presented - as what is to be found on a pro series SLR camera. 3. Image quality: This is where I honestly have to say - I'm taken! I have a Nikon D300 and I have to say that this Pentax K20D camera not only performs better in some cases than the D300 in terms of noise- but the colours on the Pentax are brighter and bolder too. Amazing... you'll just have to go and and see for yourselves. Remarkable.... and eye opening! Value for money....
