I need a quick price check on this K100D Super....

300 bucks for a brand new K100D Super decent deal? Looking to pick up a body for my daughter; she is good to go with lens for now, just need a good body.

I do have a K100D, so I am very familiar with this type of camera.......fair deal?

Just a body? I'd say is a little on the high side. Body plus kit lens = good deal. Used K100D bodies tend to be around $200-250, while it's not overpriced, it's more than I would spend (and I'm in the market for an inexpensive back up body).

Brand new in box it's a good deal, since you'll have warranty coverage, etc. As Joey said, the used K100D's and K100DS's are going for $200-250 (or higher in the latter case). I'd go for this if it's within your budget.

I bought a new K100 Super body for my son and wife a month or so back on Ebay for $175. Store demo with warrenty. They had 2 at that price and should have bought both since have not seen any that low since.
I have had a K100d for a couple years now and many Pentax film camera systems so have plenty of lenses. Gave them my 18-55 kit lense to get them started. They really like the camera of course.
Happy hunting
