Whitby, Ontario -- Jumping from P&S to DSLR


I'm a new forum member and a new pentax user (pending anyway). I've been scouring the site to get ready for the leap -- there is a lot to read! I've found it a wonderfully useful resource so far.

If anyone in the GTA area can point me towards some good spots to check out pentax gear, that would be great!

Welcome to the forums. For checking out gear, remotely, you can look at the lens database, camera database, and the Marketplace. Lots of info.

From my experience for in store you have two choices both downtown Toronto; Vistek Queen Street East just west of the DVP and Henrys again the downtown store Jarvis & Queen. The Oshawa & Pickering stores (Henrys) do not make the grade in product range and product knowledge. Online the world is your oyster.

Small world, a fellow Whitbian. I agree with funatlast, you can get Pentax gear at Henry's, but they are usually pushing Canikon. This forum has all the information you'll ever need on Pentax. The marketplace here, is a great spot to find equipment, I've bought too much here. You can sometime get lucky on Kijiji and Craigslist, but those deals are getting scarce, as the demand for Pentax gear increases.

Neat! Never been south of Auckland -- maybe next time

And thanks for the tips, everyone. I have been scouring Kijiji and Craigslist for a few weeks now. It is a lot of fun to be hunting stuff down.
