This is pretty awesome camera as far as the specs goes.
But the pricing in India (online retailers) seems to overshoot that of price in America even by straight forward Dollar conversion to Rupees. You can see the price for the same camera model on amazon dot com and see the price. Maybe export-import charges added. But not fair.
Make it available for reasonable price and people will buy. Otherwise just occupy web space.
Wonderfull Camera with a premium tag
by Boris Joseph on 2014-12-17
Shipping was impeccable as always..
All offer accessories and Bag were included. Camera it self took only 5 mins to assemble and test.
Takes pics beautifully, fast in both auto and manual.
Took lots of photos for our annual company Xmas celebration. Everything picture was exposed properly and captured to perfection!!
Lots of features to tweak and enjoy for a budding photographer.
A bit pricey but with body stabilization and weather sealing, it's worth it.

Product is too good then expectation.
by Dilip Khant on 2015-07-20
I received all listed items. Earlier order for the same product mismanaged by amazon.in and refunded all money but this time i received all items including Camera bag and Memory card.
Product is too good then expectation.
Competitor Nikon D5300 comes in picture before you make final decision for this DSLR.
I go through lots off review and expert opinion for both Nikon D5300 and Penatx K 50.
WI-FI , GPS and Lens Availability would be deal breaker between this DSLRs.
I contacted Ricoh India for future warranty claim in case require for this camera and they said you need to submit your camera near by authorized Office of Ricoh India and rest will be on their part.
Many user complaining for WiFi function of Nikon D5300 and basic user would happy with also but it's not a deal breaker from me. My purpose is to take professional quality Photograph with lot's of customization and it's available in Pentax K 50 not in Nikon D5300 as per my opinion. Ricoh already launched O GPS device (Addons) but it's costly hopefully cost will come down in future.
Also I need robust product. I mean weather sealed, hard body , Dust Proof which is part of this product.
Image stabilization works perfect and it's good for beginner like me.
Nikon D5300 has 2 Year warranty and Pentax K 50 HAS 3 YEAR which also plus point.
Cost is also law compare to Nikon D5300.
Finally I decided to go with Pentax K 50 and happy with outcomes.
Canon and Nikon dont stand a chance. Pentax k-50 ...
by Sudeep Anurag on 2015-02-19
Canon and Nikon dont stand a chance. Pentax k-50 beats all Canons and Nikons hands down in this price range. Pentax may not be so popular as a brand but its only the case in India. They dont spend aggressively on their advertising but they do it all in making quality products in budget price. Its so much value for every buck you pay. Buy it and your pictures will flaunt the dslr's ability by itself. Your canon and nikon friends will be just too envy of you as they may have spent atleast 10-15k more for the same or lesser features. Just go for it and you won't regret.

My first camera. Thank you Pentax for all the hours of joy you are providing me with. I live in a coastal area with monsoon falls......this beast is weather sealed! 'nuff said. Image and built quality puts nikons and canons to shame. thank you amazon for putting this up for sale at an unbelievable price. personal questions? find me on instagram- @alibagkar

My first DSLR. First of all, I am not going to review the product but will only share my initial experience. Technical review and comparison with the competition is available elsewhere. I feel this product is a value for money in every respect. The kit feels good and handles well with a wide and medium zoom. I am yet to explore all the settings. I got a decent deal at the Amazon during the flash 3-day summer sale that I couldn't ask for more. The 3 great deal sealers: weather sealed body AND two18-55 & 50-200 WR Lenses, in-body shake reduction, and 100% view pentaprism viewfinder, all under 40 k! The popular brands offer these specs 70k onwards especially if one is not pixel-hunting. Experts feel that 16 mp is as good as 24 mp for the APS-C sensors. A few extra things that I need to purchase separately are: lens hoods, AA battery holder(Yes, this camera can house both the original Li ion OR AA batteries) , 35/ 50 mm prime, remote shutter release. Amazon shipping was in time, packing was great and I was pleasantly surprised to find two additional freebies not mentioned in the deal: an 8 gb microsd card and a WR pentax camera bag for the two kit Lenses with several utility pockets. As I get to know it better, I may update this 6 months down the line. Thanks to my wife and Amazon.

Supplied an inferior model K 500 and Non WR lenses which is a trick played by tout suppliers.A few buyers may keep it thinking about hassles of returning and getting back cash.I have returned and got back payment after 20 days. Amazon should pay compensation for the .mental tension of customers Do not buy last pieces where you will not get replacement.

Guaranteed to supply Kay five hundred for this price of forty five thousand. The displayed price of 41K is bait. Do not hesitate to return wrong product with single kit lens.
Amazing camera for beginers
by Prajit Nair on 2015-10-14
Amazing camera. I just love this camera. The so many functions and so easy to use (please read manual). You can also set specific buttons as your your favourite settings that you would like to keep which helps a lot during photography. The colour and hsarpness is very good. I feel the 18-55 lens quality is better than the canon one's. You also got options to edit the pics in the camera, which is great functionality. The view finder captures almost everything. It has a great coverage. The video functionality i have used in manual focus and very good stability. Overall, I would say this one of the best camera in the price range and no doubt on the performance. Even captured stunning night photography of stars. It really has a good sensor.
The drawback that I only found with this camera is the parts are hard to find in India. I had to import the extra batteries. Also the lens, where you have less options than compared to Canon and Nikon.
