Hello from Baltimore!

Hey folks...I currently do not own a good camera to speak of, but I am in the market to get one within the next month. I'm looking at the Pentax K-5 IIs and the Nikon D7100...however I'm torn between the two. My first 35mm film camera I had was a Pentax (a Christmas gift in 9th grade), and I loved how solid that camera was...not to mention the picture quality. I'm leaning towards sticking with my first love!

Can anyone tell me why Nikon lenses cost so DANG much?

I have held the D7100, but the Pentax K-5 IIs is hard to find. I've yet to see one...let alone hold one.

Welcome to the Pentax forums. You could try renting one. CameraLensRental.com - Your online source for lens rentals and camera rentals
Finding one in a store is almost impossible, unless in NY.
