Pentax K10D review
Feb 17, 2009

It has been a great help, for me, to view user feedback on products. few cameras crams all those features into a sub 1.000 $ package, SR, weathersealing, etc. A highly versatile camera.
Strong construction. Extensive features, that I still after 1 ½ year continue to find new things. IQ impressive, (first year I only shot JPEG), would like better high Iso, but then I should go for K20. I would say easy to jump into, though many tweakings possible.
I like hiking, and no other camera gives me the same, than a Pentax K10 with pancakes.
Regarding value for money; no other camera in this pricerange, offers same Pro features, in a sub 1.000 $ camera.

Should I recommend another cam, then I would say Nikon D80. Rebel models are too basic, little room to grow. Sony are also lacking in their models below A700. Oly have some good models too though.

Problems:

AF better on K20.
