An error with photos? The right hand one looks right but the LH one is a different model K10 or 100?
They are definitely not the same camera - look at the knobs at the top of the bodies.

On the first photo there's is a *ist DL2. The second is K-r.

K10D is almost a semi-professional camera, not like these toys.

The K-r is hardly a toy when you put a * or Ltd lens on it.

Definitely a DL2 - had one for a couple of years prior to my K20D. Now in the possession of my son.

I've owned numerous K10D cameras and now have a K-r. There's no comparison...the K-r is hands down the better camera in all areas except gripability (especially when the battery grip is on the K10D.
