They look similar to the wheels on a Chrysler VG Valiant ( Australian variant ).

I have no experience with that lens but in what way is the K10D flawed?

I'm sorry, Ray, for the misunderstanding. My photographs are flawed, not the camera

Thanks, Richard. That is a great relief. BTW, I don't think that your images are flawed. Keep them coming.

Hi R

They don't look flawed to me.
Mine on the other hand.

is a little long for flowers, but standing way back and using some judicious cropping can make it work.

Almost new K10D

Hi fellow Pentaxians. Long post. If you get bored easily go to the last paragraph.

I’m a longtime Pentaxian but basically a lurker on the forum. My first Pentax was a Spotmatic with Superr-Tak 55/1.8, 200/4 and a 35/2.8 Auto Rikenon. bought in a PX in Nam in 1968 (yes, I am OLD!). I used it for a dozen years adding scrapes and dents, but it kept on working – and still does!. My next SLR was an LX I bought in 1980 which I used for the next 30 years until it got the ‘sticky mirror’ problem; now refurbished and works like new. I use it for B&W film. I bought a K20D in 2008, but ‘lost’ it in the Amazon in 2012. I replaced it with a Pentax re-furbished K-5 in 2013, which I still enjoy to this day. I bought a *ist DL as a backup just in case. I really like the colors or the old camera but it was rather primitive so I began looking for a K10D/K200D.

Last week I bid on a 10D w/18-55 kit lens and a remote trigger F on the Goodwill site. I thought that I got it at a reasonable price – and I was right! The package came today. The first thing I saw was a virtually pristine box with the 10D/kit lens. I couldn’t believe it. I opened it and found neatly packed equally pristine camera and lens. The only thing missing from the box was the instruction book. Looking at the the camera, the only thing that indicated it had been used was that strap was on the camera and indication that someone had used it on a tripod, otherwise like new. Curious I put in one of my charged LI-50 batteries from the former 20D, formatted an old (512 MB) SD card and took a quick photo. Checked it with PhotoME and the camera had only 3565 shutter actuations. Might as well be new.

I then checked the firmware on the camera. It was 1.00, never upgraded. Now for the question. I only have 1 in lens drive lens (18-135) everything else is screw-drive AF. I’m think of all the quality lenses with broken SDM that would work on the 10D. Many can be gotten cheap. What would you do? Keep it at 1.00 or totally upgrade the firmware? … or is there something in between??
