If you are going to hand down the K100D to your daughter, at least you can still borrow the K100D and have another camera to play with (new purchase).
It actually all depends on you.
Who knows, your daughter might get into it so much that she/you might find some hidden talent (in her) were both of you would benefit.

I know I probably sound like a broken record around here but I upgraded my K100D to the K200D.

You get weathersealing, the ability to fully use SDM lenses, a 10mp sensor which produces great photos and is especially wonderful for cropping. There are a lot of other little upgrades in functionality/usability too that I didn't expect. It was much more of an upgrade for me than I thought it would be.

I love the camera. I'm sure the K-7 is nice too but just way too $$ for my skills and bank account.

Guys,How much better in picture quality are the K20 and K7 compared to the K100D.I've owned my K100D for 3 or so years now,and I've been very please with the results it has given me.If they do take better quality pictures,then I'm certainly going to be pleased with my next upgrade.

I just yesterday posted a couple of ISO 3200 shots from my old K100 and would put them up against almost any of todays cameras... If it fits you, why do you want to upgrade...

....
You RELLY think so?

While you can take great photos with the K100, I would seriously consider buying a K20 (unless you are a AA battery fanatic). There are significant improvements in a number of things over time, not just number of megapixels. I find auto focus significantly faster with the K20 and high iso is at the least equivalent to the K100. I wouldn't have used iso 3200 in the K100 (I thought it wasn't really there, but push processed from 1600 anyway) and I can easily use iso 1600 on the K20, for what that is worth.

It's just that for me, it is hard to imagine that there is only a couple of hundred dollars right now separating the K200 and K20 cameras.

No,I'm not very keen on the AA's at all.But the K20 seems like a good price deal at the present.

You realise whilst however honourable you feel by passing to your daughter a camera, it will lead to fights over who has which lens.
