It’s a pity we had to wait so long for a review unit because a DSLR with a 6-megapixel imager is disadvantaged when compared with the current 10-megapixel crop. However, the K100D is keenly priced and has some significant advantages – and you can make decent-looking A3 prints from 6-megapixel DSLRs.
