Summary: I have owned this camera for several years now and have to say I love it! The picture quality is excellent and the ease of use for such a multipurpose camera is excellent. The autofocus works great and so does the built in flash.

Summary: Been wanting a DSLR ever since I "retired" my Penatx 35 MM TTL camera...You know, take a leap into the 21st century LOL. K10D, seemed like a 'compromise", only 10.2 MP. no video capture... , it's not...
Summary: "Buy the Canon XTi, Nikon D80 or Sony Alpha 100, and you'll get a terrific camera. " "Hiram Grant" I'm sure that is an ACCURATE statement Hiram, however I have a bushel basket full of K-mount lenses that I have been collecting since the 1960's and I thought Pentax was my best option..
Summary: I have summited Crow Peak, South Dakota. Been through almost every hazardous terrain throughout the Black Hills, and have made my way through to and up and down the coast of California with this thing. The Pentax k10d is the way to go for rough and tumble photography.
Summary: I wish I had read the few negative comments regarding lack of sharpness with the K10D sooner. Evan when I'm outdoors it's hard to get crisp photos no matter what I do. I have had this camera for over two years and have been driving myself crazy thinking I'M doing something wrong.
Summary: I bought a Pentax K10D two years ago. The camera seemed to work well, but several months ago the image sensor went bad- pictures were in magenta and blue. Returning it to Pentax for repair, I got a quote for repair of $400!
Summary: This is an excellent camera. It has been replaced by the K20D and subsequently by the superb K7. The K10D still holds its own against these more modern DSLR and others from other manufacturers. It has a robust feel of a solid device for taking pictures. It oozes quality.
Summary: I owned this for an year. You cannot say it is a very good camera. It is just a below average camera.I bought it for close to 1000 $ I could have taken maximum of 2000 pictures with it. Also recently it suddenly started showing battery depleted symbol.
Full manual controls, great personality, enjoys walks on beach.

Summary: I love my Pentax K10D. The newer models (K20D, K-7) are certainly evolutions on this platform, but they don't really add enough new features to justify the cost. I guess that's another way of saying that there isn't really much missing from my K10D. What do I love? I love all the buttons and dials.
