User Review

  • Excerpt: I owned this camera a few years ago and have since moved on to the K-x bodies for better high ISO performance and more resolution. That said, I've gotten some of my best photos with the K100D. For the price they go for on the used market these days (around $100) they're positively a steal.
  • Pros: Great image quality, great color rendering, build quality, ergonomics, size
  • Cons: Only 6MP, high ISO performance not as good as newer DSLRs

Re-utilize your older Pentax Lenses and any other Pentax lenses you have.

  • Summary: Great camera, got it to re-utilize my older Pentax lenses. Takes great pictures and writes them to SD card, here is where there's a small dislike, the write to the card could be faster. Suggest using rechargeable NIMH batteries, to take many many pictures and having fun doing it. Easy to configure and the shake reduction is great, a feature many others do not have. Have older Pentax lenses and want to migrate to digital, where here's your chance.

Great Flexibility

  • Summary: Even by today's standards this is a great camera. I appreciate the flexibility of being able to use a variety of AA battery's. The flexibility is what sold me on this camera. This camera does a great job in bridging the old with the new. You can still use old manual lenses and take advantage of the anti-shake feature.

Good camera for beginner photographers

park_jh, Ebay

  • Summary: It indeed is an old camera body to use it now, but if you want an affordable DSLR to learn photography, this is still an excellent camera. even though it's only 6.1mp, Megapixel isnt everything about image's quality. Sharpness is determined by the lens, Pentax is known to have it's rich in color, and most importantly, person's skill is what makes beautiful picture :D

Great for beginners

  • Excerpt: I am one of those people who research the heck out of something before I buy it, if its going to cost me more than 250.00 USD.  I researched DSLRs for about 30 days before deciding to go with the Pentax K100D. I purchased it about 2-3 years ago when it was new to the market. One of the thing that appeal to me the most is the ability to use every lense Pentax has ever made with it.

  • Excerpt: The Pentax K100D is a wonderful beginning slr camera.  It is a very easy camera to learn on.  You will get amazing results from this camera.  The best part about it is the price.  For a dslr this camera is very affordable. The Pentax K100D has many features.  It has image stabilization built right in.  Which is very important for low light shooting.  It will help you achieve sharp photos.  The Pentax K100D is compatibly with many different lenses.
