Hi New from Michigan

Hi

I am brand new to this forum. Just wanted to say HI and introduce myself. I am looking to buy a camera and really feel Pentax is the way to go. I have really enjoyed using my digital p&s over the years but have grown frustrated with the limits of it and want to upgrade to a entry level SLR. So I am off to read the forum here and get more questions answered.

I have to say that I have asked many people both online and in person about cameras and so far only one person has mentioned the Pentax name, so far I like what I see.

Karen

Welcome Karen. I hope you do choose Pentax, but whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy it !! As far as we are concerned here, you can't beat Pentax for the money, sure other companies make some really advanced stuff, but that advanced stuff puts a HUGE hole in ya wallet too !!

Hey

Thanks for the welcome! Good to know there are Michiganders here. Unless I have a total change of heart (seriously doubt it ) I will be ordering my camera on Friday. So excited.

Another Michigander saying Hello! Welcome here and I hope you enjoy your camera. What are you thinking about? K20, K200, K2000 or one of the older models?

Hi

I am going for the K200.
I was in the same boat as you. Went to Best Buy, they tried to push the Canon. I went to a Pentax dealer and was impressed. My K200 will be here tomorrow. I ordered it through B&H. Got a good deal since the the prices have gone back up everywhere else.

Enjoy!
Chris
