Product Overview

Pentax KP is a DSLR camera in the Pentax K-mount system. Introduced by Pentax in 2017, it comes with an APS-C sensor with 24 MP (6016 x 4000) resolution.
The camera has a usable battery life, though a second battery may be a good thing to keep in your camera bag. The KP's 7.0 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.
The Pentax KP comes with 27 autofocus points.
