It's been on the market for a few months now, but the folks at CNET have just now gotten around to giving Pentax's K10D DSLR a full review, finding quite a bit to like in the camera with only a few snags keeping it from joining its top-ranked competitors. On the plus side, they found the camera to be well-designed and solidly built, delivering some great-looking pictures, with good color reproduction and broad dynamic range, performing best at settings of ISO 800 or less. On the downside, the camera's overall performance was only average, with its autofocus occasionally causing some additional delays and its shake reduction feature only moderately effective. That apparently wasn't enough to hold the camera back from getting a decent 7.7 out of 10 rating, however, with its sub-$1,000 price tag working considerably in its favor.
