I teach motorcycle safety at the local community college system. One evening as I was teaching the classroom part of the course I noticed a 16 week photogaphy class 2 hours on Monday nights. I looked up the instructor and he told me that I need to have a dSLR camera inorder to take the class. As I was researching what to buy, I talked to friends and read reports on various websites. I purchased a used Pentax K100D Super body. The camera is as brand new. I have a ZX-10 with two lenses a 28-80 and 80-320 that work great with the camera.
The plan is to learn how to use this other than in the auto mode, like I use my point & shoot Nikon coolpix 5900, then upgrade to a more powerful and complex Pentax. At my speed it will most likely be the new K-10...

Welcome Dudley.
The K100D is capable of capturing excellent 6Mp images.
The K10D is a fine upgrade, but what would matter more is the lenses put on the cameras.
Enjoy the forum and photography!
