Hi from Adelaide

Hi everyone. I just bought a k200d with sigma 17-70 and 70-300 APO lenses. So far I love this little camera and both lenses seem really good too. I've been lucky enough to have a good amount of time with a nikon d90(for value for money comparison), and optional features asides, this takes excellent pics and has a great usable feature-set. noise is the only thing i can notice relative to the nikon.

The sigma lenses are certainly a step above the twin vr lenses the nikon had. excellent value for money here. I'm new to dslr's, although I had an FZ30 for just over a year and learnt enough to get me by with that.

Hopefully I'll have some pics to post soon. seems a great site.

Hi Simon!

Welcome to the forum! Seems there are quite a few South Aussies around here!

I've got the K200D too - but just the kit lens. Great camera - easy to use and solid. My comparison with the Nikon D60 and D80 (handling them in the shop) reinforces your statements. And I found the Oly 510 a bit small to handle (not to mention too light)
