Like the K100D, the K110D is meant as an entry-level digital SLR, a slightly more affordable version than its counterpart, though you may have to sacrifice a little. Basically, it's the same camera. It has the same 2.5 inch LCD monitor, a light, compact body design, and strong 6.1 megapixel sensor. The major difference is that the K110D lacks image stabilization and is slightly lighter than the K100D. If you're confident in the steadiness of your hands, the K110D will save you about $100, but if you're a jittery shooter and want that extra protection from blur and distortion, take a look at the other model before settling.

Note: this model does not come standard with a lens. It is a "Body Only" model. For a K110D with a lens, click here.

Pentax/Ricoh Reviews

Pentax, who just recently merged with Ricoh, has long been a sort of underdog—but not necessarily in performance or quality. Pentax/Ricoh offers some quirky cameras, but for the most part, we've found that to be a good thing.

The Pentax/Ricoh DSLR’s are mostly weather-sealed, giving them a unique advantage over competing manufacturers that don't offer anything similar. When we tried out models like the K-50, we were quite impressed with the image quality. The autofocus was a bit noisier than a Nikon, but the weather-sealing and often better price is hard to resist when the image quality is so good. Pentax continued to add in innovations by adding an anti-aliasing filter that can be turned on and off to the 2013 K-3.

Pentax hasn't jumped into the mirrorless battle too much, but they do offer the tiny and colorful Q7. With a smaller sensor and a smaller price point, the Q7 and similar models are more of a consumer mirrorless than one for the enthusiasts, but it's an extremely small camera with a whole lot of color options.

Pentax has a few solid compact models out too. The Pentax MX-1 earned our Best Budget Advanced Compact for 2013 for its advanced features yet small price tag. They offer a waterproof line that includes macro ring lights built in, something unique to the WG cameras.

Pentax/Ricoh may be a bit quirky, but many of their cameras are well worth a look and offer excellent image quality for the price.
