Pentax K100D Digital SLR


Our Score:


This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.

Despite the overcast conditions, the K100D has produced a nicely balanced shot with good contrast and very natural colour balance.


Shooting into the sun can be a problem, but the K100D’s 16-point metering system has coped perfectly. The 2:3 aspect ratio is the same as a 35mm film SLR.


The SMC Pentax DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens is very good, producing excellent edge-to-edge sharpness and minimal distortion even at the widest end.

I picked up one of these about 18 months ago, and other than using up regular Ni-Cd and alkaline batteries quickly, it allows me to use all my K1000 lenses, flash and accessories that have been sitting in my gadget bag for a while. The battery problem was solved using hi capacity Ni-Mh Batteries, which have a capacity of about 2100 MaHr, allowing a longer single use time. Keeping 2 or 3 sets charged and ready solved any trouble that may arrive. All in all, a great deal for the amateur or seasoned photographer who has used a K1000 in the past.
