  • The K100D is the latest in a very long line of 6-megapixel Pentax DSLRs.What's more, the latest doesn't seem physically that different from the first, the *ist D. Not that there's much wrong with the design. The surprisingly compact body (considering i...

  • We were rather scathing in our write up of the K100D Super's predecessor, the plain old K100D.Our grumpiness was largely because the design hadn't changed much since the days of the *ist D - if anything this incarnation is larger, yet at the same time ...

  • Abstract:  Pentax may have been the first Japanese manufacturer to market with a 35mm SLR back in the 1950s, but the maker has been slow to capitalize on the seemingly insatiable demand for digital SLRs. Fortunately, after going it alone to produce the oddly nam...

  • Results on a par with 10-megapixel competitors; 18-55mm lens included in price; 11-point autofocus system; warm, colour-rich images straight out of the camera; easy to use; reliable all-rounder
  • Bundled with non-rechargeable AA batteries; image noise at higher settings
