Has anyone used one, and would it work on a K100D?

Yes, I use one all the time especially for low angle shots. I've always had one, whether on the 135mm or D slrs.

That one is a little expensive though. Make sure it FITS on the camera you're going to use since Pentax had changed the size of the eye piece several times.

And if it rotates, as this one does, it is even better.

I use an old Spotmatic Refconverter (image is reversed left to right). As nlp239 said I had to modify it with a pair of pliers to make it fit.

I use a Seagull Right Angle Viewfinder that I got as an ebay buy-it-now for about 1/3 less. It looks identical to the one depicted on the site. The unit works like a pentaprism in that the view is right side up and not reversed.

I've found it useful for low level macro work, but I'm more comfortable at 1X magnification than 2X.
