Ummmmm. I actually purchased a K110D, so I guess I missed their 'give-away' program. :(

I couldn't afford the K100D and as you stated, other than SR, they are the same camera. It was an outstanding value and now knowing so few were sold, I will not sell my minty and fully operational unit. It will remain in my collection as it appreciates and will be bequeathed to my family when I pass in lieu of my retirement $$$, which I will be able to spend freely and in good conscience knowing they will be financially well-off when inheriting the highly collectible and sought after K110D. ;)

I'm not sure that the K100d and K110d can be considered descendants of the K10d.

First of all, I may be mistaken, but I believe that the K100d was released first.

Secondly, the K100d and K110d did not have the electrical contacts to allow use of SDM lenses. The K10d did. The K100d Super added those contacts.

The K100d/K110d used a 6MP sensor, while the K10d is 10MP.

I don't believe that the K110d was named to avoid confusion with the K1000 film camera. The K100d and K110d were released at the same time. The K100d has shake reduction, while the K110d does not. It turns out that they couldn't give the K110d away, so Pentax has never made another camera without SR. I tried to find one on ebay, with no luck. There really aren't many of them out there.

The K110d is definitely not a descendant of the K100d. More like a sibling. They were introduced simulateously.

It is an impressive effort.

Well, a simple answer might be to just leave the K-01 off the list entirely since it is not a DSLR. I'm not sure how to advise you regarding the graph. You might check this at Wikipedia for any additional ideas.

Pentax cameras - Wikipedia

Their digital series is: *ist, K, Medium Format, Q, and Optio

Thanks for all your work to try to make something graphically meaningful where others have not been able to make sense of it.

After K-7, K-5, K-3, K-1 on the negative side then Pentax can continue with the positive side with K+1, K+3, K+5, etc to K+infinity. The possibilities are literally endless :)

I admire you trying to make sense of Pentax's model progression because it makes no damn sense to me. The naming conventions absolutely defy logic.

That is quite an ambitious project you have going there, and I find it quite informative. I'm sorry I don't have information to answer your specific questions of your post. As for comments, I find graphics like these quite interesting. You have arranged the APS C in three classes, and I have to confess that I don't know what all makes them different - is the naming convention, or something else? I have tended to think in terms of the APS C models being either the "mid-grade" specification (which is still very, very good by industry standards) and the "pro" specification. In that regard, the KS2, K-70, and KP would all be in the same line, but you have them in different lines, which many would agree that they are in fact different cameras. But I don't think of KP as an updated K3II even though some specs are better than the K3II. The K-01 is of course in a class by itself. Just thoughts, FWIW. Thanks.
