Re: Is the Pentax K10D a good buy or is it better to buy a new Nikon D3100 ?



I posted on a similar question recently,my call would be for a S/H K20D,AF adjust(essential less AF problems),14.5 Mps,dynamic range extention(essential in my view) great shadow detail,bigger screen(with flakey LV),can be used with PKtether in debug mode,low noise, etc. It addressed the short-commings of the K10 and is only a tad more money. Bargain camera!

I agree.

After using a high quality dslr like the K10D, K20D, K7, K5 etc, you're not going to want to downgrade to a low-quality one like the D3100, even if it has the latest generation sensor...

How about a K7? Tethering is out, but at least accessories such as grips and focusing screen will be compatible with the current (k5) and future line (K5ii), and maybe after that too.
