A grid display may be engaged to help assure the perfect arrangement of an image and Auto Focus may be activated by simply pressing the AF button on the back of the camera. Further fine tuning of the image can be confirmed with the 4X or 8X zoom option.
  • An improved Dust Reduction system that features the new Dust Alert function to pinpoint the exact location of dust particles for the photographer to remove.

Comments about Pentax Pentax K20D Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

The first slr I bought in 1991 was a Pentax P30t and I have been a fan of Pentax since. It took me until 2007 to go digital because i wanted to be a purist film guy and didn't want any help creating great pics. I have since change my opinion because of the amount of shots you can take with a dslr and not have to wait 24 hours to see if you got one good shot from a roll of 24. As long as I have batteries and SD cards, I can shoot until my trigger finger cramps up. I love everything about this camera and it will be great for years to come.
