I bought a second K10D on eBay last month as a backup. It only had about 400 shutter clicks, and I got it for about $300.00.

Of course, my wife promptly claimed it to replace her P/S, and it now has about 3,000 shutter clicks, all of the daughters!

I have the 35-105 m42 and never used it. It's yours for cheap if you want it... w/a bower adapter to boot. I need to get it out and check its' condition.

I misunderstood your post Seawolf...I have the Vivitar 35-105 m42. Sorry 'bout that.
I bought the lens to try out the screwmount angle but I did not know my arse from a hole in the ground back then when it came to manual lenses and the green button. I have since acquired some nice older primes but my m50 1.4 is the only non "A" lens I use regularly. I also read some horror stories about using third-party adapters so I never bothered with the thing shy of a couple of test shots. The lens is very heavy and built like a tank though.

Yes .. to me there is Camel Love for the K10D

i baerly shoot with it because it is still a baby.. (aprox 1700 clicks) but i love it the more i use it
it took some time to find out what settings are the best on the K10d

the only thing is that i like nikon better because the back is less confusing and less knobs , but have to say that i didn't even bother to read my manual as i am a guy and that is strictly for girlsz.. (jesting)


K10D back : personal notes design 3.5 / 5 stars


Sony A100 design 4.5 / 5 stars (less knobs on the back)


Nikon D60 back (very clear desgin 4.8 stars / 5 )


Nikon D80 Back degin 4.6 stars out of 5 since some functions are multi button )


Also a pro camera like the K10d (nikon D200 design 5 stars / 5 )
ok it has also a lot of knobs but a bit more logically placed or grouped

from the top the nikon d60 would win 5 / 5 because it has no top lcd ansd only one jogdial and mode dial , second the d80 after that close between the pentax and the sony . the nikon has different looks than the d80 more professional

D60 top very good design


D80


Sony a100 top


K10D top

D200 top

I picked up a used K100D. That old glass is perfect on on Pentax gear. I got in to the nikon a few years ago a D3000s was like a toy to me then I heard about how the pentax DSLS would work with my old lenses jumped over and queess what I'll never go back. Now I walk around with my old spotty and k100d can't be any better than this. Slowly saving up for a K-5. But a new roof on the house is first Great Site

Now I have a Pentax again (K10D) I have to stop buying lenses..............but it is so addictive. The only complaint I have with the 10D is the stop down metering. The green button is awkward to find when the camera is up at the eye. I found the K100D easier to activate the stop down metering.
