Summary: very precise AF excellent colors, excellent contrast, excellent sharpness, excellent easy menue, excellent macro shootings with it. excellent astro photos possible, excellent anti-shake even for M42 anf K lenses without a-contacts. one of the best cameras Pentax has ever buildt.
Excerpt: I bought this camera as a first dip into DSLR back in 2006. As an existing Pentax user (KM) it was chosen so that I could use my existing lenses. It has been a solid servant both to me and my daughter who has entered various expositions in and around our home town using it.

Summary: Great camera base, works with a lot of my old K lenses (make sure the older lenses have the electronic dots on the inside ring and they will work in this) . Good price for this, wanted a K100D for a few years now.
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
Summary: Very pleased with camera and seller. Would recommend both. Jim The requirement for a headline and minimum count on words seems a little over done for a quick report on how happy we are. Suggest just a lithe easing of requirements.
