Hi Forum,

I am currently on a mission to find the right Pentax D-slr for me.

I have been using the Canon S3IS for the last 3 years and need something a little more versatile.

I started with canon, nikon, olympus and pentax as the front runners and then narrowed my search down to Olympus and Pentax.

Pentax came out on top because of the older lens compatability.
There are a lot to be had at used camera shops around my area.

Now i just need to find a sweet deal on k10D.

Hi Kal. Welcome to the forum. Hope you find a K10 soon, so you can start to enjoy photography with a Pentax.

Thank you for the warm welcome....

I am no longer looking to buy .. check my list out now

It was to good of a deal for all this gear to pass up.
Guess i'll skip the K10D for now and go for the K-7 in a couple years time.

Until then I am going to enjoy going from my s3is to my pentax.

I just hit the shutter button and wow does it ever feel different then a point and shoot.
The sound alone is worth the upgrade

Just purchased :

Pentax K100D body
Pentax 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 AL, Pentax 50-200mm f4-5.6 ED, Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 DG macro

Pentax AF-360 FGZ flash and a Lowepro Omni Sport camera bag
