Pentax K100D Super review
Nov 27, 2008

I'm using this camera for 1 year now. Great first SLR. I've made thousands of pictures in often very harsh environment and it coped with almost everything. Bought it very cheap before the k200d went out. Very pleased for the price.

Problems:

Batteries - AA batteries were huge advantage for me on long trips to wilderness as I could take as many batteries as I wanted. BUT!!! The camera doesn't like them!!! It happens more and more that I switch on the camera and it says "the batteries depleted", which is not true, as when I try it a day later with the same batteries, everything works fine a I can make over 500 pics with them.

Auto Focus is not very reliable. Often gets confused.

Heavier than similar cameras in the same category... not the best for long treks.
