Hi everyone !!

I am a Pentax newbie. started of with a sony P&S, then moved on to fuji s6000fd. after having the fuji for 2 years, finally wanted to leap to the SLR arena and was busy for a couple of months doing research (one of the sites being pentaxforums).
After all this it boiled down to Nikon D90 or Canon 450D or Pentax K20D. and looking at Price-Performance ratio, atleast for me it seemed like pentax is clearly the winner. so started hunting for good deals. found a great deal on ebay for a new Pentax K20D and new pentax DA 18-250, and took the plunge, and here i am

Thank you and Hello!!!

Welcome here.
Interesting that you found Pentax the clear winner for yourself.
Many others given the choice would go for the D90, but I agree with you - not just in price vs. performance, but in build quality and user interface.
Enjoy your K20D and keep learning.
