Our picture needs are quite varied. We do some indoor pictures, both for\nroom portfolios and normal shots of friends. We also take a lot of\nlandscape and wildlife shots on hikes. Most importantly we wish to have\nmore success with action sports shots, likely at a pretty good distance.\n\nWe have been guided towards a Pentax K100D Super as a first DSLR. The 6.1\nMP is fine for us I believe, and the fact that the anti-shake is in the\ncamera body would potentially save us a lot on AF lenses.\n\nRecently while testing out the K100D, the salesperson suggested we look at\nthe K10D, its' big brother. Lots of stuff we don't need, but the 10 MP and\nthe better quality lens is appealing. Is it 0 more appealing, I don't\nknow.\n\nThe same salesperson suggested that we consider the Samsung GX10. Now that\nSamsung and Pentax merged, the GX10 is the same camera as the K10D, with a\nfew cosmetic differences and comes in around 0 cheaper. It also has a\nslightly nicer Schneider lens.\n\nMy biggest concern is how the two cameras (by this I mean the K100d vs. the\nother two) would work in daylight, taking zoom shots of fast action about\n200-300 yards away. I think pretty much all DSLRs will do OK for our other\nneeds.\n\nOr should I just be looking at a super-zoom point and shoot? I know both\nCanon and Nikon have good ones for a couple of hundred less than an\nentry-level DSLR.\n\nAny advice appreciated.
