This is a small, one-man company that makes horse-drawn carriages and wagons.

Horse-drawn carriages! Bunkum! It's technology gone mad, I tell you. I'll stick to sitting on a log pulled by my two oxen, thank you.

After owning a Nikon D40, D90, D7100, D700 and then going to 35mm film and then 6X4.5 and even 6X9 film and then to Sigma DP Merrill and then to DP Quattro 3 I found out by accident about Pentax and how special the K10D is.


I am in the process of selling all of my camera gear and sticking with the K10D. I just got the camera about 3 weeks ago and they offer such a bang for the buck that I bought another one! The prices on these have bottomed out!




From two different auctions, and for under $170 shipped I have:


2 K10Ds (one has 18,307 clicks on it and the other 6,373!) Shutter is good for 150,000.
5 batteries
1 official battery grip
2 chargers
4 bags (2 of them just for the camera and 2 larger ones that hold everything else)
2 18-55 II DA lenses
1 manual





Oh yeah, and I also bought two of the "Amigos". I am attaching some photos shot with Amigo 31.



Yesterday I just bought the Amigo 77 and it should be here soon. These lenses are about $1,000 new but you can find them for about 60% off used on ebay. The Amigo 77 I bought on Amazon with a bunch of gift cards so basically it only cost me like $150.




The K10D is an awesome camera and the features it has totally blow away all of my previous Nikons away.




All photos are SOOC, with 0% photoshop/lightroom. The last photo was converted in camera from color to B&W just to show you how special the processor is. I love the SOOC photos, less time spent in LR for someone like me who is not a pro!


Enjoy (theTrippa, hahaha)!

Thanks! I'm all in all right, the only bad things I found are:

1) Inside the viewfinder the readings on bottom are VERY dim, but it's sort of my fault because my prescription glasses are transitional so they act like sunglasses. It makes it impossible to read the numbers unless I take them off. Next time I'm getting just regular glasses.


2) I wish I found out about the K10D years ago, the photos have exactly the look I am looking for with zero lightroom/photoshop editing.

Welcome to the group. That's why we are all here.

Some great images there. Typical K10D quality.
