Cons:Slow and inefficient AF rendered not good at high ISO
Opinion:It was my first DSLR, bought consciously at the balance price, when it was already out of production. I don't consider the 10-megapixel sensor, the lack of live views and other aspects that only testify to the age of the machine. The AF is certainly the most deficient aspect, although compared to that of other machines of the same era. Buying it today makes sense whether it's taken as a mule or to use the multitude of Pentax MF optics that are around.
Pros:Ergonomics, possibility to combine a bg, excellent autonomy without bg and tropical conditions, quality and detail of the jpg as they come out from the camera, ability to use it with all the old Pentax lenses, but also Sigma, Tamron adaptall2, etc. maintaining exposure, confirms maf and stabilizing lenses.
Cons:unpleasant noise already from 800 ISO, inability to micro af no "hack" the camera
Opinion:Purchased in 2006 and combined with the 16-50 2.8 recensisco today only 10 years away. Obvious today its limitations (ISO in particular). Yet it is a car that I loved (and sometimes hated!) But it has never left me indifferent. For a day use with good light it is still valid today. The detail in jpeg find it or even better cameras out 10 years later (better detail but nonexistent noise reduction!). So in good stead as I said is a valid camera. The autofocus I've always found faster coupled to the only lens that af "I" (16-502.8 ultrasonic), but I must add that I have never had the need we take pictures of moving subjects. I have always focused on the central recomposing, what I was doing even with film SLR. Apart from the ISO, I hated this camera for the lack of micro af. Believe me, until you find yourself in the hands of a lens from 1000 euro and there'll not be able to correct the front and back focus errors can not really understand the meaning of FRUStension you feel. Yes the 16-50 2.8 Pentax suffers both front to back coupled with k10d. It seems then to have understood the Pentax is in fact the k20d was equipped with micro adjustment. What it does instead is upset that Pentax has carefully refrained from correcting the problem of k10d (only needed a firmware that become available the hidden menu that already exists in the camera). To this day if I had to buy back a one of the main requirements reflex would be just fine adjustment f. Everything else you can live with, each camera has its strengths and weaknesses and the photographer always has to adapt (and this obviously applies to all brands and models). Worth buy it today? Although I have 10 years in any areas I can still have their say. I do not recommend it for what I have described above. But if you have a very limited budget (is 150 euro today), and you are "geeks" (that does not scare you "hack" the k10d to enable micro af Room), then you might also, andtory the right purchase. The pros of k10d are not few and they are not insignificant.
Pros:From the new cutting edge, reads all the objectives pentax. Very durable batteries with no memory effect.
Cons:Too much noise from ISO 800, shutter noisy and heavy, I'm not ever been able to use it with the metz flash for Pentax.
Opinion:Great travel companion and teacher in the good time I was made conditional to malaysia from america, africa and india. Has not missed a shot. Difficulty in photos in low light. According to me it has a sensor with a low range of steps but it did not have other comparable cameras I can not speak with certainty. The perfect battery with no memory effect. To be used even today to learn because it has all those little programs that create laziness in the photographer. Hello
Pros:Good and sturdy house Pentax SLR, dated but still valid that knows how to give a hard time with the new entry-level Canon and Nikon, super, sealed internal stabilizer and convenient buttons at the right place
Cons:"Only" 10MP, no live view, no video problems at high ISO (800-1600)
Opinion:I own the Pentax K10D with Pentax SMC DA * 16-50mm f/2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM Pentax SMC DA * 50-135mm f/2.8 ED (IF) SDM. The objectives are super and the machine gives me a great satisfaction in taking pictures. Considering taking another between Canon 60D SLR, Nikon D7000 and Pentax K3, I think that for the goals that I have, I will stay on with the Pentax K3 fantastic and above all not semi-FF (read the review) and maybe integrating the other objectives.
