5.0 out of 5 stars astonishing value for money., 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentax MX1 Expert Compact Digital Camera - Black (12 MP, 4x Optical Zoom) 3 inch Tilt LCD (Camera)
As a household the kids and I have a few Nikon DSLRs, a fujifilm x20 and 2 of these. So we have seen how this compares to many different cameras in different situations. Put simply this is the best advanced compact on the market for under £250. The build quality is stunning and the functionality very intuitive. A few niggles ( the lens cap stops the camera from turning on yet it still tries is breathtakingly stupid but apparently ebay sell a work around for that ) but all in all a fanastic bit of kit. RECOMMENDED HIGHLY ...

Just a note on the lens-cap issue you described.

The camera can be turned on with the lens cap on. You can turn the camera on by holding the review button on the back of the camera. You can also set this option up in the menu under "Startup Shortcut"
