The price quoted is really cheap!
They had bad experience trying to sell a Pentax camera? :think:
But itz an attractive pricing strategy to increase the Pentax masses which will translate into higher sales of Pentax stuffs!

So, they got sell just 'Body' alone hor?

Can someone please do AF test in lowlight plzzzzzzzz... :sticktong

It should be inclusive of GST. Went to AP this afternoon, was quoted ard the same prices and they said it included GST.

The K10D looks well built, feels fairly light....the kit lens got metal mount somemore..only a few sets left...

Just got mine this afternoon at AP for $1320 nett (body only w/ 1gb SD and a sling camera bag) :D



We (I went there w/ another friend) didn't bargain 'cause we felt the price was quite okay. Had been waiting for it for too long, so didn't even think much before we made the payment ;)

Now I'm a happy Pentaxian ...

Just did a quite SR test after kids are all in bed. All following shots were taken by K10D + DA40 @ F4, 1/4s ISO 400 in JPG handheld, no PPing done w/ either one.

SR off:



Center crop of the above:



SR on:



Center crop of the above pic:



I've taken over 6 photos w/ SR on and 6 w/ SR off, all quite similar. You can judge by yourself if the SR works or not ;)

Cheers!

I got the body alone, and I couldn't even remember how much they quoted me for the kit price :bsmilie:

AF in lowlight is definitely alot better than Ds, but I don't have a Ds to compare now. Read somewhere that the Nikon D80 is slightly faster w/ AF under low light condition but K10D has slightly faster AF in good light condition...

Thanks :) You'll definitely see some pictures taken by this camera, 'cause it's the only dSLR camera I have right now ;)

Here is another one taken inside Alan Photo within the first minute after I picked up the camera (DA40 wide open in jpg):

Is the lens easy to buy in Singapore??
All DA/DFA lenses (except the DA70) are easily available at Cathay Photo and Alan Photo, and Pentax has alot DA/DFA lenses:

DA10-17
DA12-24
DA14
DA16-45
DA18-55
DA21
DA40
DA50-200
DA70
DFA50 macro
DFA100 macro

And there are some other lenses on the roadmap:

DA35
DA55
DA*16-50
DA*50-135
DA*60-250
DFA200
DFA300

I've said it many times and I'd say it again, new Pentax lenses are easily available, it's not like what many others haven't been saying. Just go to Cathay Photo and see it by yourself ;)

Cheers.

Woah, so i look for this uncle when i'm getting stuff from AP at simlim! :bsmilie:

Your SR test is really convincing! ... and I have shaky hands... :think:

Do you feel any "clunky" movement/sound from within your K10D as reported by some users?
