K10D, K100D Super

I've been using a Canon Rebel XS for a couple months, but lately I've been eyeing the Pentax lenses jealously. I looked at Ritz today and they have the K100D Super body for $350 and the K10D body for $450. I'm really tempted. Any thoughts?

Go for K10.
it's great camera and you won't regret getting it. If you have bit more money get newer K20.

get either body and then shop on here for a nice 16-45 or even the kit 18-55 and go enjoy photography how it was meant to be enjoyed

or get these lenses which will give you great starter optics with a good focal range for a budget price...

Yeah, I would tend towards the K10D, since you get more features and weather sealing (not to mention a significant boost in resolution). I did like the size of the K100D, but the K10D isn't THAT much bigger, and just a bit heavier. I agree about the K20D, but I would almost pay double what I would pay for the K10D... this is a steal.

At that price it's money well spent.

K10D than K100D.
You can get the K10D here in the marketplace for mostly around $350.
Same price as the K100D you are eyeing except with much more features and 10mp and ..yes, not to mention the weathersealing.

Go for the K10D, K10D body is under $400, only a little more than the K100D-S, but K10D offers alot more in turn of features and performance. worth every peny.

I would definetly go for the k10d for more features. The k100d is a great beginners dslr kit but iirc, the features that the k100d is almost equal to a/ my old nikon d40 kit but the d40 was more of a newer body. I originally was going for the k20d but as I researched more, I tended to lean towards the k10d. Also dont forget that the k10d is discontinued and rivals the Canon 40d and Nikons d200.
