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: 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 It has been replaced by the K20D and subsequently by the superb K7.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.
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.
Great DSLR w/ weathersealing and nearly perfect ergonomics

Summary: This was my first DSLR and it's been a great experience. It uses the same Sony sensor as the Nikon D80/D200 and if you shoot RAW, you get effectively the same results for much less cost. On top of that, you get weathersealing so you can use it in the rain or snow or dust w/o issues.
