Nothing to worry about -- a few stuck / dead pixels on a sensor is completely normal, you're talking about a sensor with multiple millions of pixels on its surface, after all. Heck, it's not unusual to get cameras that have a few stuck pixels even when first shipped from the factory. They're easily mapped out and corrected for in software, and indeed the majority of cameras these days will do this themselves as you're shooting in JPEG mode, too. Some also do it before saving Raw data, others don't.

No need to sweat this one, if it's shooting fine for you.
Thanks! I feel better now

Hurray! Another K100D fan here!
My K100D Super is about 18,000 actuations now. As much as I want to upgrade, I can't justify it. The quality and reliability are amazing. I have printed up to 20"x30" from it.
Here is my PPG link to some of my pics with it:

Long live K100D and Super!

Thanks,

K100D is indeed a great camera. k-x is the only can which can hold better against it in low light. I am sure you will have many great shots with it.

This is also one of the reasons I don't want to upgrade..but that K-x sure is tempting!

It is odd that right now, the oldest (K100d) and newest (K-x) of the four Pentax DSLR bodies I own are the ones I use the most.

What can you say GeneV? A good camera is a good camera! :-) It's nice, light and compact, and best of all dirt cheap! Though I would love to upgade to a weather sealed k-x ish camera with focus points... :-)

What are the two other bodies that you currently own? Let me guess, a K10D and K-7?

It's been 10 days since I got my K100D and taken over 1000 shots with it I can really confirm my first impression - impressive!

This little camera is a real wonder considering its size and price. It definitely worth every penny. I now even use it more than my K10D.

I only use M42 lenses on it so to me it's a perfect combo.

The dirt cheap part and the Lithium AA/CR-V3 power are the reason it stays in my car all the time. Staying in the car all the time leads to getting used.

Exactly the same thing here ... always in the car. And, it has earned me some $$ taking pictures of car accidents.

Interesting. Care to share how can you make money from shooting car accidents?

All car accidents involve some type of liability. Photographs of the damage or injured are welcomed by insurance companies, especially if it is a he said - she said type of accident with no proof or police investigation of fault.

In my state, non-injury accidents are not investigated by police, which makes photographs important in determining fault in damage claims.

I still have my K100D with 25K actuations.... my first DSLR. It is still working fine, however, I am using it more for testing lenses. Especially for the DA* lenses to keep the internal focusing mechanism working every now and then; don't know if this really helps with the SDM motor, so far, both 16-50mm and 50-135mm still works with K10D and K7.

I use my K100D all the time and have no intention of upgrading it as it so good, just marvel at the pic's it takes sometimes, so sharp and clear.
Have just dug my old *istDL out of the cupboard to use on a bellows to try and keep the shot count down on the K100d as it's upto about 17k now.
I posted this pic in the Russian lens thread, but this is what the *istDL is capable on a bellows.



I'm in the very early learning satge of the bellows at the moment
