I just got my new Pentax K10d, less than 24 hours ago. I upgraded from a Fujifilm S3100, bridge camera, and this K10d is my first excursion into the grown up world of the DSLR's. I love the feel of the camera already.

I'm wondering if anyone has any how-to book suggestions. The manual only goes so far.

Have a great one!

Welcome to our world. I know you're going to learn a lot just by reading the posts alone.
As for books, I've got the Magic Lantern guide to the K10D, which I got before I got my K10 (week before last--though not my first DSLR) and while some people say it's too simplistic, I've found it to be very helpful. As a matter of fact, I haven't even looked that the manual.

Although I don't have this book myself, a lot of people around here like "Pentax K10D Book : everything you need to know...and then some". You can order it directly off of the author's website (k10dbook home) and get it either in printed or e-book format. I may eventually get this book myself.

I don't know what you have in the way of lenses yet, but the Marketplace is a good place for good deals on lenses and such.
