DPReview just published their famous full in-depth review on Pentax K-r DSLR. Introduced in September 2010, the Pentax K-r is line-up between entry-level DSLR (Pentax K-x) and more enthusiast model (K-7 and K-5). What interesting is that DPReview claims the image quality is almost identical with Pentax K-x that introduced in September 09 . With that fact and several ‘standard’ upgrades , can Pentax K-r compete with similar products ? DPReview concludes:
A very competent upper entry-level camera that delivers decent image quality across the ISO range and at six frames per second comes with one of the fastest continuous shooting rates in its class. There’s some stiff competition in the upper entry-level bracket of the market but the K-r is definitely worth a look.
The camera got overall score 71% . FYI, the Nikon D3100′s score was 72% .
