I made the switch from Canon at the end of 2008. The K10d is my first digital SLR. I bought the kit including the 18-55 lens, which is a good lens, especially in daylight, for a bargain price. It took me some time to get used to the controls, not saying it's a difficult camera to use, but it was my first digital slr. It was actually a joy to play around with it. The features are extensive. I bought the Magic Lantern guide also. The construction is fantastic! Very solid, and Pentax makes the ...

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 ...

great (best you can get with a DSLR in this category) results when taken RAWs. IS is great. handling is just perfect. Problems: focus in low light is pretty difficult, manual focus is recommended here.

- very fast. - ideal for outdoor sport and travel shooting due to dust and water proof. - very friendly. just take it and shoot. no vague menus and menus and buttons like in canon, sony and nikon. - unlimited series at 3.0 fps really works (though 3.0 fps is true for series up to nearly 30-40 high quality images, then it bacame about 1,5 fps for a while and then returns to 3.0) - i can use a collection of old thread mount lenses without any limitations - really good kit lenses - quite good ...

I cannot hold back on this camera. It is just 5's across the board. After leaving the canon side, I am very happy I choose pentax. I lost money selling my canon gear, but its still worth it. This camera just does everything I want it to. I have been reading about the K20D and it looks like it has everything built in to it, but I just want to say. If your debating between the K10D or the K20D, the K10D is a great camera and I will be very satisfied with it for years to come. 10mp is ...

After 8 months and 10000 photos taken I still love my K10D. It was not easy to learn and I had problems ocasionaly, but all due to the simple fact that I don't like to read user manuals. I've taken winning pictures under challenging conditions and this well-designed camera was my trusty partner. Problems: I'd wish the program lines to appear on mode dial directly. I like this feature a lot.
