Pentax K100D Super Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 8.17 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "... The K100D Super is the latest in a slowly evolving line that goes back to the *ist DS of 2004, and as such feels like an old friend. The ergonomics are excellent, the body is pleasantly light but very solid-feeling, and the pentamirror viewfinder is bright, with both Excellent tested accuracy and Excellent (though just barely) tested magnification.

This gives it something of a price advantage over equivalent models from Canon (the Rebel XT) and Nikon (the D40), which use lens-based image stabilization. But 6.1MP is still pretty skimpy. ..."

Review (Summary): "The Pentax K100D Super is an updated version of the year-old entry-level K100D DSLR camera.

In all other respects the K100D Super is identical to its predecessor...

Having the arrogance to call your camera 'Super' places it justifiably in the firing line for a critical kicking. But having used the camera for more than six weeks, that thought has never entered my head until now. That's because the Pentax K100D Super ticks very nearly all of the boxes for those wanting an easy to use DSLR that delivers images you'll want to keep straight out of the camera; and with the minimum of user input and effort to boot. ..."
