Hello From Canada

Hello everyone, I am from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and am new to Pentax Forums and DSLR's. I have been debating for months now on which DSLR to get, the debate at first was between the Canon Rebel XTI and the Canon 30D. Looking on dpreview i came across an add for the Pentax K10D and that caught my eye right away. I further researched this camera and finally narrowed it down to the Canon 30D and Pentax K10D. Well I can now say that i am a proud soon to be owner of the K10D with 16-45 Lens. I have not been able to use this camera as it is a gift i will be recieveing in the near future, although i plan on learning, sharing and taking advice from all of you here on PentaxForums.

welcome carm!
there is a small but growing ontario population here
a few of us are within a couple of hours drive of T.O.

looking forward to some of your photos

BTW, I was seriously wanting the canon 30D but once I found this site, I was sold on the K10 as well.
boy, I am so glad I didn't get the 30D..... knowing now that a good lens with SR for the 30D is just a tad over an arm and a leg.

Hi Carmelo! Great to see more people from the GTA! I'm a K100D owner from Mississauga.

It may not available on the Canadian site (Pentax Canada) but you might want to go to the US site and download the manual. I've put a link below.

Pentax Imaging - Manuals & Literature

Learn all you can before you get your hands on it and start shooting and we all hope to see what you see through your new camera very soon!
