I gave my website a complete revamp. As of this moment, all the images were taken with a K100d Super.

I just bought last week dirt cheap K100D So far I like it.

This picture is few minutes ago. I had laptop lying around and fly was pressing Windows button. So I had bug on Windows.
Some funny facts: There is actually another fly on right corner out of focus and that computer has never ran Microsoft code.
ISO3200 F5.6 Sigma APO DG 1:4-5.6 70-300mm @300mm 1/100

Good one! Must be Vista! It tended to draw flies!

Hate to be stick in the mud but I really hate my K100d super I couldnt keep up to the batteries even when not used it went throught them . I got to a stage where I had to get a battery grip / vertical shutter & UNPLUG t it when not used flatten batteries in 24 hours not used . Almost gave away 20 years with Pentax & at the time if I could afford it I would have gone to Canon or Nikon
But I got a s/hand K10d its a different kettle of fish

My K100dS eats cheaper types of disposables but Everyready Energiser Lithiums last for months (they also cost more). Like you I also upgraded to a K10 and don't regret it. The K100 can take good pictures though.

That sounds like a problem with your particular camera - that definitely is not normal. I'm still using a set of eneloops I bought in 2010, in my K100D and *istD. They have plenty of life in them even after 4 yrs. I can leave them in the camera for weeks with very little discharge. I agree about the K10D batteries, however. They seem to just go on and on....

To give you a idea I used top of the line Energirser Lithum 12 in grip & 4 in body left it for a week set the grip on auto & 4 days latter all were flat. Next I made up a plug & a 6v battery for a torch & lasted 6 days. Now sits with my Z1 film camera where I will collect more film cameras for a collection of Pentax cameras

Cine lens shots must be heavily cropped unless it was a super 35mm but doubt it since it's an 8-40mm f/1.2 most likely 16mm. Image circle wouldn't cover aps-c.

Just googled it - 8mm! Must vignette like crazy and on a k100d you do not have many pixels to play with...

Bonjour virgilr,

It does not vignette at all. But it will not focus below 15mm on the zoom.

I pulled out an inner (rear) element and replaced/realigned the last element with other lens parts; remember, this is a "Franken-lens"! ...

Here's some K-5 captures with an "ad hoc" aperture to "stop down" the lens a bit... two round plumbing washers and wall poster putty to hold them in place ... more experiments and/or refinements later when time permits. Salut, J

The k100d super was my first dslr which is still being used by my brother today. Once I got the Sanyo enloop rechargeable batteries the annoyingness of the AA batteries when away. I miss the camera and steal it from time to time just to hear the amazing sound of the shutter and to still remember how good it was.
