Summary: I didn't have a problem with this camera, that is until one day when it was only two and a half years old it suddenly stopped working. I never missed treated it in any way. It just stopped working.
Summary: First of all. People buying DSLR cameras expect to be a Photographer or take Great Pictures. If you want to be a Photographer it will be way expensive since all Samsung/Pentax lenses are expensive and rare. For example. A Canon 50mm 1.8 is US90, and Pentax 1.7 is like US200.
Summary: I love this thing. Fantastic camera. Takes really great images, but..... Try finding a Samsung dealer to buy accessories! While you can use Pentax accessories, being that the camera itself is made by Pentax, and in some cases is better then the Pentax itself (operating system for example.
Summary: This is a great camera. with a powerful professional set of controls. I've been using it since 2008. I also have the GX 20. The GX20 if you can find one, offers a bigger image file but if you are not printing very very large images, that may be unimportant.
Summary: Samsung GX-10 is an excellent DSLR (if not one of the best)on the market, technologically and value-wise. Based on Pentax technology, this modfied DSLR is full of technical options only available in higher-priced cameras. The solid (sealed construction) feel of the camera should be an added asset.
Summary: This is a heck of a camera for the price paid (I hate to say it but even at the current price it's a steal). To start off, you can use all the pentax AF lenses made virtually in the past 50 years and don't need adapters. You can use 95% of the MF ones without adapters as well.
Summary: To anyone looking at getting this camera, don't worry, it's a great camera. It is almost a twin of the Pentax K10D camera. Everything the same except that the battery grip for the K10D does not fit this camera well. You can do a search on this topic.
Summary: I didn't buy this camera here on Newegg because I found a better deal. This camera is essentially the same thing as the Pentax K10D. The amazing thing is if you shop around you can find a K10D or GX10 for $650 including the kit lens
Pros: 1) Shake Reduction 2) Dust Shake 3) Weather Seal (most <$1000 cameras don't have it) 4) 10 megapixels 5) 3 frames/second - You can shoot JPEGs at 3 f/s until your card fills up 6) Kit lens is pretty decent 7) Compatible with any K-mount lens 8) Build quality is awesome 9) 2.5 inch LCD 10) RAW ......
Cons: None that I can think of. The bottom line unless you're willing to dish out $1100+ you won't find a better camera.
Summary: I bought this after doing my homework. For the same price as D40x(was my original choice)I ended up with more controls, antishake, and dust reduction. I'm very pleased with the kit lens and have no regrets buying this camera. Review 1 is obviously an advanced shooter, and I am a rookie.
