Pentax K-500 review:pared down specification, pared down performance?

Sensor Review
Introduction | Pentax K-500 sensor performance | Pentax K-50 Versus Pentax K-500 | Pentax K-500 versus Canon EOS 100D versus Nikon D3200 | Conclusion

If you don’t intend to test the weather-resistant sealing of the K-50 and aren’t too concerned about the other features offered, the saving of $200 or thereabouts is not insignificant. Add to that the K-500 uses the same sensor (and most of everything else), at $599 with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL kit lens it’s a sorely tempting option.
