In the market for a new camera since my Minolta died and I may be in the market for a Pentax. Had several film cameras before and always liked their products, plus being able to use the older lenses is a plus. Either I am blind or stupid but I don't seem to see much difference other than price between these two models. Even as I compared the specs, they seemed identical. What is the difference between these two models? Thanks for your enlightenment. This is a great place by the way, lots of information and helpful people. Kudos to Steve.

The PENTAX K100D will ship along with the smc 18-55mm lens in July 2006 for $699.95 US, while the PENTAX K110D will ship along with the smc 18-55mm lens in August 2006 for $599.95 US.
