My new K10D has arrived!!!!

YEEHAW! My new K10D is here! Cameta Camera was wonderful! They sent me a nice email very fast. I just ordered the camera Monday through their Amazon store. I will be boring you all to death soon with photos but right now I have some reading to do about my new camera.

Oh, yes, I forgot to tell you that this is a reconditioned sales man sample. Cameta Camera is an authorized Pentax dealer. They get the cameras restored by Pentax to new condition. Comes with a full new camera Pentax warranty. I paid $399.95 for the camera body. Got free U.S.P.S. Priority Mail shipping too.

What a great deal! I know you will love the camera as much as I love mine. Now you can save up for some of that SMC glass stuff.

I'll slightly modify a recent quote I herd from someone to make it apply to your new acquisition.

Enjoy what you are using (K10D in this case) rather than what you could be using.

There's a long list of ever revolving posts on the pro's and con's of each model of pentax DSLR camera here. Simply read between the complaints and you'll usually find useful tips to work around any shortcomings of each camera. Marc Langille recently commented how he preferred the 100 ISO results for macro of the K10D over the K20D... so there's a plus on top of your great price. I second great glass down the road as Albert suggested.

Thanks folks.

I was reading the manual last night and taking a few test shots when I fee dead asleep, camera in hand! I work 4 days a week over the weekends but get Mon, Tue and Wed off. My day starts at 3:30am and I don't get home until 5:30-6:00pm. I was one tired boy. I remember looking at the manual then ZZZZzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZ she is waking me up. She sent me to the couch and had to wake me again for supper.:ugh:

Well, what I have "seen" of my new camera I like. I will get out Monday for some photos.

I really am grateful to all of you for giving me such great advice. Thanks!

Hey Thumper, what is the firmware on the K10D since it was refurbished by pentax.
It should come with the 1.30 I guess since it was refurbished by pentax.
I wouldn't think pentax would still have you update the firmware yourself since it is supposed to have been refurbished by them.
Original and old firmware is 1.0 of course but the firmware has been updated 3 times to be compatible with the new SDM lenses and fix some bugs.
I do hope you already have the 1.30 to save you the effort of downloading the latest firmware from pentax and installing it yourself.
