Great value camera...

Advantages: Image Quality, weather sealing, Price, Lens choice.
Disadvantages: Lack of video mode.
I owned this camera around 3-4 years ago. It's essentially a clone of the pentax k10d but trust me, that's nothing but a good thing. It's got amazing weather proof sealing for if you're ever using the camera and it gets the odd splash or it's very dusty (who knows when you're out taking photos)... It was made quite a while ago so there's no movie mode but this camera can be picked up fairly cheap from amazon now and if you're after a solid performing camera, I'm sure video capabilities won't bother you too much.
Image quality is excellent even on auto settings but if you know what you're doing or are in the process of learning photography, you can do alot in manual with this camera to create some truly beautiful pictures. Just search gx 10 on flickr to see what I mean! The kit lens that comes with is fairly standard, nothing amazing but it takes pentax lenses, so if you do a bit of hunting around on amazon and ebay, I'm sure you'd be able to pick up some good quality primes to use.
All in all, if you can find this camera within the sub £300 range in good nick, grab it.. It's still better than alot of these entry level dSLRs that are knocking around online now and this is pretty old now!
Summary: Get it whilst it's available and cheap... Great camera
