We have recently purchased a Pentax K100D Super and we are wondering if there is any way to have the image or scene that we are about to shoot displayed on the LCD screen in leiu of using the viewfinder.
Thanks in advance

No... that camera (same as mine) does not have that feature.
Practice viewing the picture as soon as you take it. You'll get used to it.
If you want to "test" the shot and not save the pic, then instead of pressing the shutter switch, move the on/off switch past the "ON" position (it is spring-loaded and will return to the "ON" position).
This is called "Live View" and it is not possible with the K100D. For that, you must purchase one of the more recent models. I don't think the K200D has it yet, but I believe the K20D has it. (Don't quote me on that.)
My buddy just got it with his new Canon Digital Rebel XTsi? Not sure what the model is.
My solution to this (with my K100D) is just take lots and lots of shots. Hopefully one of them turns out to be a keeper!
That's how the professionals used to do it with film and no preview (during or after).
