Pentax K100D Hands-On Preview posted!|

Pentax invokes a familiar name to replace the old brand for their sixth digital SLR, and the K100D seems to be worthy of borrowing the legendary Pentax K1000 moniker. The Pentax K100D's small build and 6 megapixel sensor are enhanced by a large LCD and an impressive stabilization feature for clearer images from lower shutter speeds.
White balance and AF speed could use some improvement, but overall the Pentax K100D impressed our Senior Editor, especially when paired with Pentax's short, fast prime lenses and Pentax's hot-shoe-mounted bounce flash. We're still working on the full review, but come see our Hands-on Preview of the Pentax K100D.
