Compared to other similar cameras what I like most in Pentax - Natural & reach colors - much better than Canon produce. Build quality is very good . And one more thing with Pentax - their lenses. My opinion - they are much better (kit 18-55) that any other. Thanks!

Good cam. Served me well for almost three years. Small and light 50-200 is very good. Can take AA batteries. 6MP far enough for A3+ prints, good colours and resolution in RAW. Problems: Exposure a bit to dark, needs post processing. Kit lens 18-55 not top, 16-45mm better. AF not good in low light. Viewfinder for its class ok, but sometimes difficult to use with glasses (camera is small and always had fingerprints on the glasses when using rear dial).

I am writing this review after almost having this camera for 2 years. Very capable camera and great image quality. Menu system is simply and well layed out. Very good battery life with CRV3, this camera has several options in choosing batteries. Kit lens has great quality for the money it being sold. Ergonomics are super, easy to handhold in a single hand while shooting. AF is sometimes slow with less contrasty scenes or low-light. On-board flash is very good. Image stabilization is ...

I own it since three years and enjoy it a lot. Six months ago i found a used canon 10 d body for using some good reputated lens from canon kit. Pentax is absolutely better in sharpness I made with it a wedding of a friend of mine with high quality shots how never before.If you use it indoor with flash, high iso and slow shutter speed can obtain wonderful shots with natural light effect of slow moving subject. Problems: None

I got this camera mainly because it had SR and because it was going cheap here in the UK. Overall I'm very satisfied. I shoot in RAQ and image quality is very good indeed. Compatibility with my old K mount lenses is great. Compared with the DS which I still have, the smaller buffer and slower operation are a little disappointing - it's also heavier and the grip isn't as nice for my hands anyway. But I use the K100D all the time now. Problems: Stiff AF/MF button Some dust trapped under the ...

Got the K100D+kit lens for under $400 AR. Wanted a "disposable" SLR to take where I don't want to take my Canon 30D plus expensive lenses. Also wanted something I can leave in the car without getting anxious. The camera and lens hasn't disappointed! Sure, it would be nice if the kit lens was longer, but it's very sharp and well-built. The biggest surprise, however, was the SR (shake reduction) feature. I was getting most of my shots at 1/8 or 1/10 sec. in focus. That seems implausible ...

SR, Spot meter, 11-pt auto-focus w/ 9 cross-type, AA batteries While the K100D is said to be an entry-level DSLR, the present of a spot meter, a 11-point auto-focus system, and the use of AA batteries makes it stand out from the rest of the competitions. With the Shake-Reduction function, I can consistently get clear shots at 1/8s, 18mm focal length. My longest clear exposure with SR is 0.5s at 18mm. However, I had to hold my breath in order to do that. I could do better if the 2sec timer did ...

Bargain in the UK! This is my 4th Pentax digital SLR (DS, K110D, K10D- and still have the last 2). At the price point its currently going for in the Uk, I'd snap one up sharpish before the "K100D Super" comes into stock. If you are debating between this and the Nikon D40, the D40 is possibly nicer to look at, has more controls on the exterior, has a quieter shutter, BUT, has no anti-shake mechanism, has a smaller viewfinder and is limited on lens compatability. The K100D will accept ALL K ...
