Salam (Hello) from Bangladesh

Hi, I'm from Bangladesh. Pentax has recently been introduced in my country for the first time through a distributor. I still don't have any DSLR although I have been using several Canon from my office and relatives. Here everybody advises me to buy either Canon or Nikon but my web research made me interested in Pentax K3 and my other option is Nikon D7100. The current pricing of K3 at B&H or Andorama also very much within my budget. Only problem they don't ship to my country.

Welcome. As you know Canon and Nikon own most of the market but that does not mean they are better. Pentax is an excellent camera. I made the move from Nikon to Pentax and am very happy. I love the variety of the old lenses that still work on modern cameras. As for your problem of buying one, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you can find a good dealer on eBay that does sell in your country. pentax k3 | eBay

Welcome to the forum! I think you'll like the feel of the K-3 in your hands more than a similarly priced Nikon or Canon. Perhaps you can find one closer in India, Malaysia, Singapore, or Hong Kong? Good luck in your quest. Looking forward to seeing some of your images when you get the Pentax.

Finally purchased my first Pentax from Adorma.com on 11th April !! It's a Pentax K3. But, need to wait till end of May for my K3 to arrive at my home via hand carry from USA. Guess this is my first step towards becoming a Pentexian.
