The Pentax ME is one of the best-constructed and most professional-feeling entry-level SLRs around. It's extremely compact, beautiful, and capable of making exceptional images while asking very little of the photographer. It's semi-automatic shooting mode makes for a focused and direct approach to photography, while its metal shutter, extremely big and bright viewfinder, and exceptional metering system make it a seriously capable machine.
The included lens comes from Pentax's incredible SMC range of lenses. This means that the lens' optical coatings are among the best of its time, providing shots free of chromatic aberration, ghosting, flaring, etc. The advanced optics of the system imbue shots with excellent vibrancy, contrast, and clarity.
The focal length of 50mm allows photography of many standard styles, from street photography to portraits and everything in between. For this reason it is an exceptional lens perfect for beginners or anyone looking for a "one-lens-fits-all" solution.
