Dpreview has reviewed the budget DSLR from Pentax, the Pentax K2000 or known as Pentax K-m in Europe. This DSLR is marketed at photographers moving from compact cameras to DSLRs.

Some key features for the Pentax K2000 – K-m:
-10.2 megapixel sensor
-5 point auto focus system
-2.7″ LCD screen
-ISO sensitivity 100-3200
-Dust reduction

Dpreview ends up giving the Pentax camera a “Recommended (with reservations)” because the default JPEG engine does not produce the best pictures and because this camera is for amateur DSLR photographers the default pictures should be better. The camera is however pretty good if you are able to change the default settings.
