A friend of mine was considering a Pentax K100d after being recommended it by Gerry Gibbs Camera House. They swore it was the best thing since sliced bread. I think they're getting kickbacks from Pentax all of a sudden because it's a quick flip from their traditional Canon slant.

Anyway, I recommended him against it purely for one reason: Compatibility. Every astronomy program supports Canon DSLR's, few support Pentax. So no matter how good the camera, he was always going to have issues of compatibility.

Seemed like a nice and very capable camera other than that.

I suspect that's why you'd have problems finding info on them with respect to astronomy - simply very little support for them in the astro arena.

My 2c worth.
