I had fond memories of my K200d, so i bought a cheap K10d for $100. I could not believe how loud the shudder was, but i love the tether option. I am a big fan of the CCD sensor at iso 100-400 in good light. I ended up swapping it for a Sony A100 which is not the same level of build quality but i just adore the minolta 70-210mm F4 lens.

When I went to touch and hold my first dSLRs, it was between the Sony A100, Pentax K10D and Oly E-5. I think you can appreciate why I was impressed with the K10D when holding them. The Pentax felt like a dSLR I thought should feel. Plus WR... I went thinking I was going to get the A100. Articles, reviews, are subjective/objective but still can't give each user an idea of what their personal experience will be like.

My K20D is a keeper. Tether shooting, good pictures. Resolution is basically equal to the K-5. But the K-5 has a very low noise floor for great shadows, high DR and high ISO.

For the going price I will keep the K20d as a backup.
