    congratulations :)

    from what i heard it is a nice camera.

    for technical terms, also wikipedia can be a friend, or google :)

    I've had mine for a little over 6 months now and have been very pleased with it. I think you made a good choice as it is a very good competitor in today's current line up. You will be pleased with it.

    Congratulations;

    Be sure that you will like it a lot. K10D is my first DSRL like you, and I am very happy of have chosen it. In the forum you can find a lot of shooting details. Also in green mode and P mode you can practice the adjustments.

    You are obviously a man of discerning taste and style. Anyone who uses Pentax gear and wears a Nolan helmet is okay in my book. Now, if you ride a V-Strom we were probably separated at birth!

    I kid! ;)

    I think you'll enjoy the k10d. I'm replacing my somewhat bashed *istD in the next month or two with a k10d. Unless Pentax makes the pending new body too irresistible.

    Enjoy your new camera. :thumbup:

    Very nice choice, I was considering one before I got my D80. If I didn't get this I would have probably ended up with a K10D. I think you'll like it a lot.

    I received it yesterday (took awhile for Amazon's "free" shipping). I have to admit, I am intimidated! I'm used to little point and shoot cameras. Hopefully I can get out tomorrow and play a bit with it.
