The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
The K-50 is one of new pair of twin DSLRs from Pentax, the other being the lower priced K-500.
Outstanding controls and a big viewfinder make this SLR a joy to use
The Pentax K-50 is a very minor refresh of 2012's K-30 DSLR camera, additionally offering support for Eye-Fi wireless cards, an extra ISO 51200 setting, more sober styling than the "aggressive" K-30, and the option to uniquely customise the colour to one of 120 combinations
Arriving barely a year after the release of the K-30, the K-50 is very similar to its predecessor with only a few minor tweaks including 120 unique color options.
the K-50, you'd be better off investing in the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 WR (weather resistant) lens to make the whole package more durable
The Pentax K-50 is a fully weather-sealed D-SLR camera with an big optical viewfinder and fast burst shooting capability. It's available to order in any of 120 color combinations, but its video functionality is behind the times
Pentax has replaced last year’s mid-range K-30 with a more conventionally styled model. As with its predecessor, the new weather-sealed K-50 has a stabilized 16-MPix CMOS sensor with improved image processing and sensor sensitivity of up to ISO 51,200
A reasonable option for an entry-level dSLR, the Pentax K-50 should satisfy if you need the weather-sealed design. But while acceptable, it and its cheaper sibling the K-500 lag behind the competition in image quality and performance.
A decent entry-level DSLR that braves the elements
