  • 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

Happy with Product

James V. Maines, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: I have used Pentax camera equipmet for 39 years. The most amazing thing is that I can still use the special lenses I purchased for my Spotmatic back in 1972 on the digital bodies I purchase today.

  • Summary: This K100D is a great step up from the point and shoot cameras. The extra features and possible camera adjustments provide the option of mimicking professional photography. Not a duplication .

A good camera for the money

William Bradley, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace my venerable Pentax K1000 film camera. I chose it because the K body will accept the lenses from my old camera, which it does quite well. The camera is nicely ergonomic and fits well in the hand.

  • Excerpt: I have this little baby for quite a while now. This was my first digital SLR a my first „real“ SLR since my only other SLR is slightly outdated: a Yashica FX-2. I bought the K100D because of ability to use „old“ lenses and AA batteries and the shake reduction system built in the body.
  • Pros: Cheap entry level cam, top LCD, perfect for IR photography
  • Cons: No possibility to use SDM lenses, very slow RAW processing

  • Excerpt: After 4 years and nearly 32,000 shutter actuations, I still love my k100d. First, the image quality. The 6mp sensor is old by todays standards, but it still produces the same image quality it did 4 years ago. I was happy with it then, and I'm still happy with it.
  • Pros: Small, cheap
  • Cons: Slow

Pentax K100 Great first D-SLR

G. Maynard "Top 5 Records", Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: This is my first foray into the digital SLR world. I have always had Pentax film cameras (K1000, and ME Super) and have loved their quality. I've read that the new DSLR's use the same lens mount as the 35mm camera body so it made the most sense to stick with Pentax.
