Hey Anuj: The Pentax K-S2 in another DSLR design, it can take every interchangeable lenses that the K-50 can take it is just an updated version of the K-S1! Do to research on it before making a stupid statement that it is a Fixed lens camera! Mike

Pentax K-S2 does have interchangeable lenses. It is corrupting your comparison.
