Dipping my toe in the water...

I have been out of photography for years (Canon AE-1). I was too expensive a hobby while I was having kids.

I want to get back in it, but I'm not going to break the bank. My ultmate destination is a K10D, but I'm looking to start out with a K100d or even isd DL while I acquires a couple of lenses.


Just hanging around, trying to pick up the lingo and figure out the path to photo nirvana

Push, shove, kick, bump...

Go ahead, jump into the deep end; buy the K10d first. Don't be a chicken! Unless you plan on trading or selling the stuff as you go, your path is tortuous and long, runs the risk of having something go out of vogue/fashion and doesn't really constitute a sequential learning program.

Well, I just bought my wife a new car last week, so funds are a little thin right now. I know that a long telephoto will be required for what I want to do, so it won't just be an initial camera purchase at the beginning.

I don't mind taking my time.

It looks like the K10 prices may come down a little bit more, but they are pretty darn good right now with the rebates being offered. I have the K100D and the K10D is in the mail.

There's nothing wrong with taking your time so you make the decision that is best for you. (But it is a LOT more fun to jump into the deep end!)
