Rating: no ratingThis Pentax steps up a gear from their mid-range compacts, notably in the physical size and quality of finish. It houses a good quality zoom (38-120mm), with plenty of features for a variety of picture taking situations. The focus and exposure system is also an improvement over their earlier compacts, so should give sharp, contrasty results. Panorama mode is included, but is not generally seen as the main reason for buying this type of camera.
