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.
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.
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.
Summary: I used SLRs 30+ years ago. My Canon (not digital) finally was destroyed from beach pictures. (Sand in casing) I abandoned "real" photography in place of digital...camers..iphones...ipads... But i did miss the fun of an SLR.
THE BEST PENTAX CAMERA IN MY INVENTORY AND THE CHEAPEST...BEST VERY BASIC BACKUP CAMERA YOU CAN EVER HOPE FOR!

Summary: Few places have the Pentax K100D camera for sale new now but its a camera worth buying on the secondary market if you can find a gently used one. The Pentax K100D camera is a very basic camera that is best for people new to DSLR photography.
K100D Super - Great for getting into DSLR photography

Summary: I've never owned any SLRs, just little point and shoots. I was looking for a DSLR that would help me with that next step and would accommodate my needs as my skills improve. I considered the entry level DSLRs from Canon, Nikon, and Pentax.
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.
