Pentax 645Z

51.4 megapixel, Pro SLR, Non-Zoom

Medium-format cameras offer truly spectacular resolution, but until now, it's always come alongside a difficult compromise. With the Pentax 645Z, that changes. Building on 2010's 645D, the Pentax 645Z offers features that are rare or in some cases unique in a medium-format camera. Pick up its weather-sealed body, and you'll find both live view and video capture on offer, not to mention an extremely wide sensitivity range, 27-point phase-detect autofocus system -- and compared to rivals, very swift performance too! And of course, you'll get the incredible detail-gathering capability of medium-format, plus a really big, bright viewfinder. Is it time you considered moving up from full-frame? Read our Pentax 645Z review, and find out!

Pentax K-3

24.4 megapixel, Pro SLR, 7.50x Zoom

Ricoh's flagship APS-C camera, the 24-megapixel Pentax K-3 is jam-packed with clever technology, yet it's also affordably priced and among the very smallest enthusiast DSLRs. As well as overhauled imaging, autofocus, and metering, it also boasts an industry-first system that lets you choose whether resolution or moire-resistance are more critical for any given shot. But can its unique advantages tempt you away from mainstream rivals Canon and Nikon? (And should you upgrade, if you're already a Pentaxian?) Find out in our Pentax K-3 review!

Pentax K-3 II

24.4 megapixel, Pro SLR, Non-Zoom

The Pentax K-3 II keeps almost everything we loved from the superb K-3, then replaces the popup flash with an in-camera GPS -- not just for automatic geotagging, but also for freezing star-trails in astrophotography. As if that wasn't cool enough, its Pixel Shift Resolution tech takes detail to the next level for razor-sharp photos. But what are the drawbacks, and should you buy this camera or the original K-3?

Pentax K-70

24.2 megapixel, SLR, 7.50x Zoom

Ricoh's Pentax brand has made a name for itself by providing enthusiast-grade features at aggressive, entry-level pricing. The Pentax K-70 follows in that tradition and offers an unbelievable amount of camera for very little cash. But that's not to say that it's perfect: We had concerns about its wireless communications and movie autofocus in particular. So should you buy one regardless, or should you look elsewhere for your next DSLR? Find out now in our in-depth Pentax K-70 review!

Pentax K-S2

20.1 megapixel, SLR, 2.78x Zoom

Pentax is sometimes seen as a conservative brand, but the Pentax K-S2 changes all that with features never seen before in the company's DSLRs: A tilt/swivel screen, in-camera Wi-Fi and a retracting kit lens. And that's not all. The K-S2 retains great specs from earlier mid-range Pentax DSLRs like a glass pentaprism viewfinder, twin control dials and weather sealing. Rivals would have you pay enthusiast-grade pricing for all this, but is there a catch? Find out in our in-depth Pentax K-S2 review!
