If you took the brand new Pentax K-50 and stripped it down a bit, you’d have the new K-500. The camera is Pentax’s new entry level DSLR and for the most part is every bit the camera that its bigger brother the K-50 is. However, it only comes in black and can’t be customized to look any way that you want. Additionally, it runs on AA batteries and doesn’t have weather sealing. In many ways, Pentax is giving the entry-level customer a lot of power–but it may be just a bit too much.
