Hi K10D fans,
some really cool stuff here, thank you all for posting them. anyway Im not a K10D owner yet but maybe I will I would like to dive into photography for some time and now just having an opportunity to take my hands on a K10D with 5k expo and 18-55 DA for like 200 bucks. Overall good condition. Do you think is it worth it? Will be my first DSLR.
Thanks for your help!
Sounds about right.
It is an extremely good camera.
Don't let the 10.2 megapixels worry you.
The reproduction from this camera's sensor is first class.
Remember it is at its best up to ISO 400 - after that it starts to limp a bit.
Use it where it can show its strengths and you will love it as we do.

Beautiful shot, Oldhand. That's it right there: THAT'S the thing the K10D sensor does with colours that the newer cameras don't.

ABSOLUTELY! Assuming it really is in good condition, and the lens too. 5K exposures is nothing. I was just recently on a three week European vacation and shot 3K during that.

Yes, with a very low shutter count and in very good shape with the lens it is definately worth it.

I bought mine a couple of months ago with 1755 clicks for $185.00, no lens though

Of all the cameras I have ever owned, I definately like the 10D the best because of its beautiful color and very good IQ. I also have a Pentax K-50 and it is a very good camera and very easy to use with legacy lenses. The color is excellent but not in the same class as the K-10. The K-50 is a little easier to use. I also have a Sigma SD-9 which will definately give the K-10 a good run for the money color wise. Unlike the Pentax systems it is very difficult to use with legacy lenses, althouch many owners have produced stunning photos with this camera, maybe it's me LOL See the attached pic for the SD-9 pic. If you are interested in legacy lenses, I would suggest that there are a lot of people more than willing to help so you make good sound purchasing decisions. In most cases a good legacy prime lens will be right up there with modern lenses while giving you a bonus of that wonderful rendering of images. There are some good Zoom lenses as well. Hope this helps.

Regards,

Gavin

+1 to this ^^
Brilliant shot oldhand!

No eye-popping colors here, but I still kind of like this shot of our cat, Doc.

That shot is magical, Tom. What a combo - a nifty fifty and a K10D sensor. Excellent.

I recently bought a portable light tent for some product photography that I had to do. Today I decided to use it to take a shot of my first car. Unfortunately this one is just a 1:18 scale model of it but it does bring back good memories. And the light tent does a great job, I think.

Got room for another K10D member? I'm getting a K50 in a couple of months, but will have a K10D arriving towards the end of this month!

After reading this entire thread, and thoroughly enjoying the images, I'm very excited to get the K10D. Got it from a great member here!

Hey Steve, looks like we have the State of Montana covered!

I'm really looking forward to getting back into DSLR's, especially with Pentax!

Really great images. The photographers did well and that sensor is so great.

The more the merrier. The K10D should render any fall color remaining really well.

Sadly, most of the fall color around here is gone, after two early snowfalls.

Question: My old Nikon D70s used a CCD sensor, like the K10D does. It had an electromechanical shutter, that is, it just turned the sensor on and off instead of having shutter curtains (at least, at high speeds. Not sure if it had them for slower speeds or not). That allowed you to use manual flashes at very high speeds without having blacked out strips in the image. Does the K10D operate the same way, or is it using a more typical front/rear shutter curtain at all speeds?
