Airconvent already post this already.

By the way, IMHO, the Pentax DSLR "Shake Reduction" is a bit impractical... you need to select the focal length of the lens to use it. :(

Anyway, it funny that Pentax got another model that don't have this feature: Pentax K110D. Hmm... just wonder why is this so??

Have a nice day.

Hi Weixing,
You don't need to key in the focal length for autofocus lenses. only the non-pentax manual ones. if this case, either key in the focal length or switch off the feature. the compensation depends on the range to the object but for manual focus lenses, there is no way for the camera to gauge.
The K110D is not really selling well since everyone is going for the K100D instead. For those who do not think the anti-shake is important, they pay lesser for the K110D...

Hi,
Both K100D and K110D look so much a like and seem like the only difference is the shake reduction.... I think people out there will buy a K110D and try to flash with the firmware of K100D to see whether can a K110D become a K100D... :P :P

Have a nice day.

But base on the specification in Pentax website, both have the same weight: (560g) without battery and SD memory card; 22.4 oz. (635g) loaded and ready.

Have a nice day.
