Just used/held working K10d
Sep 21, 2006

Well our rep came in with a fully working K10d... beta firmware still as has ISO 50-3200 (sorry forgot to check the version number, I only had 10 minutes with it)..

Opinions:

  • Sv mode is cool, just what I wanted, I put front dial as ISO and rear on Program-line shift, very nice to use..

  • Weight and size did feel a lot more substantial than any previous Pentax DSLR even the D, more like my friends 20d..

  • Autofocus: Don't even start me on that it was sooooo much faster than even the D or K100d, don't even bother comparing it to the DL/DS.. And I focused in some real dark spots in the office and it was still very quick and confident.. This was using the Sigma 18-50 kit lens too...

  • Sound: AF was pretty soft, softer by far than the K100d and also shutter sounded good again (thinking of D not DS/K100d)..

Don't know what else to say, other than I am bloody eager to buy mine... no more doubts on whether I can settle with my K100d..
