Hello, I have been reading your forum for a few days and decided to join. My SLR is a Canon film camera, and I went to digital with a Sony point and shoot. I have been reading about the Pentax K100d, but was afraid to buy it because I read reviews that it was a little slow on the shutter speed. Then I started reading about the K10d and decided that is the camera for me. I take pics of my kids sports, mainly basketball, and need a camera that will take action shots.
I enjoy reading the posts here, and am glad I found this website.

It was the k100d that I read was slow on the shutter. I am thinking the k10d will be much improved.

Welcome billie!

k100d is not slow. Much faster than DS. Of course k10d will be faster than k100d but this should not stop you from buying k100d.

You will love this forum as this forum is growing bigger and bigger just of last 2 months with NO Attitude!!
