I normally shoot ISO 200 film but occasionally shoot wedding photos and use ISO 100 film. My concern with the K100D Super is that it only goes to a 200 setting and has 6MP. Some say that that won't cut it for 11x14 enlargements while others say that isn't an issue with good internal camera software. What's the experience of others enlarging shots at ISO200 from the K100D Super?
Hey there, Tirec; welcome to the Pentax forums.

If you're concerned about the quality of 11x14 enlargements from the K100D, check these out.

These are from my niece's wedding recently.

All above shots were made with a K100D, and a $100 Metz flash with a $20 diffuser on top. And all these shots were made with the kit lens @ f5.6, @ sensitivity 400!

If the kit lens can produce results like this, imagine what a good prime lens can do!

Also, when you get one of these images enlarged at a good lab, the print actually looks better than the computer screen.

Get used to shooting manually whwnwvwer appropriate and look around for some second hand K fit lenses which you can get for a song if you search hard enough and it will feel like one of your beloved cameras. I used an MX for decades and now love my K100 just as much.
