I have a Pentax K10D camera with Pentax lenses and 10% of the time the pictures turn out very green. This usually happens in the first of a series of photos. I’ve tried different settings for white balance with little effect. It happens in both JPEG and Raw, although JPEG is the worst of the two.
My main system is a Minolta 7D. One year ago, the Pentax K100D super became so cheap that I bought one so I could use some of my old Pentax glass with it (50mm 1:1,4 KA - very nice). I threw in a 40mm DA pancake and went through pretty much the same admiration curve as you with the 35mm macro. By the way, compared to similar glass on other systems, the Pentax primes (especially the 40mm) are almost a steal. On Sony/KM, you'd have to "go Zeiss" if you wanted that class of image quality. I use my K100D as a compact camera - a crop from the 40mm will still yield higher image quality than zoom with a Canon G9 - and keep my fingers crossed that one day Pentax will make a DSLR similar in size to my old MX.

As for whether you buy the Pentax K10D or the Samsung GX10, I have to say the final decision has nothing to do with the cameras themselves, or the images they produce. While the respective manufacturers may talk about ‘firmware tweaks’ it remains a mystery what tangible difference they make; certainly if you make comparative prints up to A3 in size you aren’t going to separate them, hence there’s no choice but to give the same overall score for both models.
The Pentax K10D and similar Samsung GX-10 are 10.2 launched in late 2006. They were developed in a collaboration between of and of .
